Difference Between 2500 Mega vs. 3500 Crew Cab?

Not every truck has the strength and resilience to tackle tough tasks around McKinney. How do you pick a truck that’s perfect for your unique driving needs? The experts at Bonham Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram are up to the task! Whether you’ve got your eye on a 2500 Mega Cab or 3500 Crew Cab, our team will help you sort out the specs to find a model that can handle your needs. In this guide, we’ll walk you through both the RAM 2500 and 3500 lineups in the popular Mega Cab vs. Crew Cab configurations.

Crew Cab vs. Mega Cab: Bed Length and Total Length

For both the RAM 2500 and 3500, the Crew Cab configuration offers extra flexibility. While the Mega Cab is only available in a 6’4” length, the 2500 and 3500 Crew Cab offers an addition 8’ in length for those extra-long items. If you have super-sized hauling needs, the Crew Cab is your pick. If you’d prefer the 6’4” bed, then both options are open. 

Keep in mind that the Mega Cab is slightly longer overall, which leads to a longer exterior length of about 10 inches between the two – which could boost comfort, but it could also mean a tighter fit in your Sherman garage!

Comparing the base Tradesman Crew Cab and Big Horn Mega Cab trims, you’ll find that the 3500 Crew Cab has a much higher payload capacity than the 2500.
