Default crew cab vs. quad cab...

sorry for the dopey question; but whats the differance?

i thought my window sticker said CC, but the vin# indicates a QC according to my insurance.
i just had someone break out my rear door window and that is what has started my confusion.

The Quad Cab has a small back seat, and a 76" bed. The Crew Cab has a large back seat, and a 67" bed.

Explained better...(seats are the same size) if your knees touch the front seat you have a quad cab. If you have a few inches of knee space you have the crew cab. The doors are full size compared to 3/4 size.

had similar issue, mine is a true crew cab but on my insurance card it says QC. I called and they said it says crew in their system just abreviated wrong on card. so i guess there is a lot of confusion.

You also get the storage bins in the floor in a crew cab, according to my expert backseat testers, my 18 year old 6 foot son and my almost as tall daughter, they say the seat have a better lean to them so they are more comfortable and it's nice to not have your knees against the back seat. Front seat passengers can be comfortable also without having to worry about the people in the back. I think you get a 6x9 speaker also in the rear doors instead of a 6.5 round, although that is not necessarily a bonus since a lot of people like to upgrade to component speakers. No biggy to fill in the hole a cut a new one, can use mdf, or some heavy plastic...plexiglass I guess?

Funny thing - when I first started looking at the Dodge it took a little while to sink in that there was a difference between the QC and CC. I thought they were the same until I realized what Dodge did. They made two different models. I'm not sure why they would make 2 different models, but that could be an entire different thread.

If you didn't do your homework it could be easy for someone to just think the Quadcab is the defacto. People could have thought that Dodge called their 4 door a Quadcab because Ford called theirs Crewcab.

So imagine someone going to the dealer and looking at the quadcab thinking it's the only 4 door Dodge has and buying it just to realize the salesman didn't tell you about the crewcab. And they realize this after they get home.

I wonder if anyone out there has ever made that mistake.

i think they should get rid of the door handles on the quad and make them open like the old extended cab trucks...

that would be a true sport look

i went to the dealership and told him i wanted a truck (just like my '06 sport; which i thought was a cc) and apperantly ended up with a smaller back seat.


oh, and i had the back door apart to change the window and it has a 6x9 speaker.
my truck has the alpine 10 speaker surround sytem if that matters.

Your 06 would be a quad cab. 2009 is the first year for the crewcab 1500

Could be, I don't fit in the back seat of an 09 Quad cab 1500 or my neighbors 06 Quad cab 2500.

I'm finding it hard to believe that you spent $25K - $40K and have no idea what you bought

last night i checked out the window stickers... you are correct; my '06 was a qc.
i just bought the same thing i had before and assumed it would be the same as i had before!
i dont really care about the back seat, but i do like the "larger" bed on the my qc.

I also didn't know they made a quad and a crew. I assumed mine was a crew until right before the papers were signed. I really don't care about the back seat anyway, just use it for storage and prefer the big bed so I got it. The back seats have less room then the 3rd gens, it reminds me alot of the QCs on the 2nd gens.

One of the reasons I had never considered a Ram before this year was the lack of a real crew cab. Dodge confused things with the Quad cab designation when everyone else called that size of truck an extended cab.

Yeah but then they would of been the only truck with a true 4 door extended cab configuration. That would of been kinda weird.

QC's have never changed regarding room for passengers. I have looked at them, 05,06 and 08 but never bought one since I couldn't get a car seat to fit properly. I almost pulled the trigger on a Mega but didn't. Glad I waited for the Crew. Just the right amount of space for rear passengers

they did for 2009. it looks like the 2009 cc is basically the same as a 2006-08 qc.
while the '09 qc is smaller and wasnt an option (size wise) before now.

The o9 CC is bigger than the 06 to 08 qc since I was in the market for one then and the back seat was always the problem till now. I have expert opinions, 6 foot kids that have been in all thoseyears and this one is by far the biggest and best comfort they say.

There is a considerable difference in the 2nd 3rd and 4th gen QC's, I've had all three. The length of the truck is the basically the same but the way its designed makes the difference in leg room. The 3rd gen has more than the 2nd and the 4th has less than the 3rd.
There's no comparison between the CC and any QC, CC is much bigger.
