Does a Smart Car Fit in a Bed of a Truck?

Smart cars are becoming increasingly popular among drivers who want a fuel-efficient vehicle that doesn’t take up too much space. But if you’re a pickup truck owner, you may be wondering if a smart car can fit in the bed of your truck.

The answer is not an easy yes or no.

It depends on the size of your truck and the type of smart car you have. Most small trucks, such as midsize models like the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado, and Toyota Tacoma, can easily accommodate a smart car in the bed. However, larger trucks with longer beds—like those found on full-size models like the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and Ram 1500—may have difficulty fitting a smart car in the bed without some modifications.

If you do decide to try and fit a smart car into your truck bed, it’s important to take certain precautions to ensure its safety. For starters, make sure you use tie-down straps or ratchet straps to secure the car in place. You should also consider using ramps or boards to help get the car into place without damaging it or your truck bed.

When it comes to loading heavier vehicles like SUVs and minivans into a truck bed, it’s best to leave that job up to professionals who are experienced with this type of work. They will know how to properly secure and lift these types of vehicles without causing any damage.


In conclusion, it is possible for some types of trucks and smart cars to fit in a truck bed but this should only be done by experienced professionals who are knowledgeable about proper loading techniques. To ensure the safety of both your vehicle and yourself, it is best to leave this job up to those who know what they’re doing.
