Who Still Makes a Regular Cab Short Bed Truck?

The regular cab short bed truck has been a staple of the automotive industry since the early days of the pickup. But who still makes a regular cab short bed truck?

The answer may surprise you. While the majority of pickups on the market today are crew cab models, there are still a few manufacturers that offer regular cab short bed trucks.

The most notable of these is Ford, who offers its F-150 Regular Cab with a 6.5′ box. Chevrolet and GMC also both offer their Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500 Regular Cab models with a 6′ box as well.

These pickups provide buyers with an economical option for those who don’t need or want all the bells and whistles of a larger crew cab model. The shorter box also allows for better maneuverability around tight spaces, making it perfect for those who need to park in urban areas or have limited storage space.

For those who need even more room, there are extended cab versions available from most manufacturers. These pickups offer extra seating in the rear and up to 8′ boxes, giving buyers more storage capacity than ever before. While these extended cabs may not be as “classic” as the regular cabs, they do provide more utility when it comes to hauling cargo and passengers.

No matter what size pickup you’re looking for, there’s sure to be something on the market that fits your needs. From full-sized crew cabs to compact regular cabs, there’s something out there for everyone.


Ford, Chevrolet and GMC all still offer regular cab short bed trucks in their lineups today. These models provide an economical option for those who don’t need all the extra features of larger trucks while still providing plenty of utility when it comes to hauling cargo or passengers. For those needing even more room, extended cab versions may be available from most manufacturers.
