This truck stands tall at just over 6 feet (73.9 in.), and measures slightly under 19 feet long (227.7 in.). The width is 78.5 inches and it clears the ground by a good 8 inches of space. Inside the cab you will find plenty of front head room with 41 inches available, and the leg, hip, and shoulder room is also very generous. It seats 6 people with the extended cab, so you won’t have to worry about being cramped when travelling with only a few passengers.
