The Chevrolet Silverado is no doubt, one of the most popular and sought-after trucks on the market today. One of the greatest reasons as to why this is the case is the line's considerable number of features and configurations. For the 2014 model year, you have the option of choosing any of the following trims: the 1500, the 2500HD, and the 3500HD.
In the event that you wish to go or the Chevy Silverado 1500 variant, the next thing that you need to select is the cab style as well as the length of the truck bed. You have two options when it comes to these features: either opt for the Crew Cab or the Double Cab. Both are going to give you a lot of room, but there are still quite a few differences between the two.
Overview of the 2014 Silverado 1500 Model Year
Before we proceed with providing you the main differences between the Crew Cab and the Double Cab, let us first take a look at the comfort,convenience, and safety aspects of the Silverado 1500 trim.
Comfort and Convenience
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is noted for its increased convenience. Yes, the basic dimensions of both types of cabs remain the same, but the the use of space has been enhanced considerably that there is now greater headroom and legroom throughout the interior. Front passengers can now also enjoy more adjustment ranges and features.
Chevrolet has long since been known for its dedication to continuously improve the safety aspects and components of its product offerings. With the 2014 Chevy Silverado, the cabs have been redesigned and now feature new structures. The all-new Crew and Double Cabs have been equipped with greater structural stiffness, resulting in a much more enhanced crashworthiness.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has awarded the the Chevy Silverado 1500's crashworthiness with a five-star rating, much thanks to the impressive total frontal-impact safety of the vehicle, as well as its total side-impact safety features.
Crew Cab vs. Double Cab - The Difference Between the Two
If you are unsure as to which of the two cab types is the right choice for you, take a look at these factors for consideration.
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is an all-new, award-winning, feature-packed, full-size pickup. Impressive capability is what you can expect from this vehicle. Whichever of the configurations you choose to go home with, you can rest assure that it is going to meet and satisfy all of your needs. But knowing the difference between the cab types can help you figure out which is the better option for your requirements and personal taste.
Before, the Crew Cab only came with a single option: the short bed measuring 5.75 feet. For the all new 2014 Silverado, this has been changed, and you can now get a standard bed size, which is at 6.5 feet. As for the Double Cab, which used to be called the Extended Cab, increased convenience is what you can expect. It has a standard bed also measuring 6.5 feet.
Aside from the difference in terms of size and measurement, here are some of the other components that differentiate the two types of cab.
The first difference between the two cab types lies in the available configurations. The Crew Cab is offered with the Silverado 1500 either as a standard box or a short box. As for the Double Cab, you only have one option, which is the standard box. If you like the standard box, any of the two cab types is a good option.
For the standard bed, the cargo capacity of a truck fitted with either a Crew Cab or a Double Cab is going to be the same. What you need to keep in mind, though, is that, if you go for the Crew Cab, there is more space in the cabin itself. The Crew Cab also features more storage areas. So if you plan on transporting or carrying around with you fragile or valuable items, the Crew Cab option may be a better choice.
Both the Crew Cab and the Double Cab are spacious enough that they can accommodate up to six passengers comfortably. However, a Silverado that comes with the Crew Cab is slightly more spacious. It has a slightly bigger front shoulder room. In addition, the Crew Cab also has slightly more second-row hip room. Last, but not the least, is the fact that the Crew Cab also has undergone considerable improvements in terms of second-row headroom and legroom, making it slightly more spacious than the Double Cab.
All in all, it is easy to figure out why either the Crew Cab or the Double Cab models are great options. However, if more cabin space and head room is what you want and need, the Crew Cab option may be a better choice for you.
