Who Makes a Regular Cab Short Bed Pickup Truck?

Many of the leading manufacturers of trucks offer regular cab short bed models, so there is no shortage of options available on the market.

The Silverado 1500 has three different engine options – two V6s and one V8 – as well as two beds: a 5-foot 8-inch or 6-feet 6-inches long. Meanwhile, the Silverado HD lineup features even more power with its Duramax diesel or gas engines and also has two different beds available: 6 feet 9 inches or 8 feet long.
