Determining RAM 1500 width, length and height

The 2021 RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup that is manufactured in two cab styles, two cargo boxes, and five engines. Six passengers will sit comfortably in this four-door truck, and any buyer can choose between its several trims: Big Horn (or Lone Star), Tradesman, Long Horn, Laramie, Rebel, Limited, and TRX.

Exterior Dimensions


2021 RAM 1500 has two cargo beds: the standard one that is 5 feet 7 inches long, and the extended one of 6 feet 4 inches. Together with one of the cab modifications (Quad or Crew), pickups differ in length. The Quad cab with the 6ft.4in.-box has an overall length of 228.9 inches. The Crew cab with the 5ft.7in.-bed is 232.9 inches long, while its combination with the  6ft.4in.-box makes the overall truck’s length be equal to 241.8 inches.


The width of both Crew and Quad cab styles is the same and equals 82.1 inches.


The Quad cab’s height differs from its drivetrain: 4x2 is 77.6 inches high, while the 4x4 is 0.01 inches higher, equaling to 77.7 inches. The Crew cab trucks’ height varies across the beds and drivetrains and ranges from 77.4 to 77.6 inches. 

Ground Clearance

The Crew cab ground clearance for both beds and 4x2 drivetrain is equal to 8.3 inches. The 4x4 drivetrain allows a bit more (8.7 inches) space for the shorter bed and 8.6 inches for the longer box. The 4x4 models can also have a skid plate that reduces the ground clearance to 8.2 and 8.1 inches respectively. The Quad cab has a ground clearance of 8.4 inches for the 4x2 drivetrain and 8.7 inches for the 4x4 one. The latter configuration is available with a skid plate that reduces the ground clearance to 8.2 inches.


The Crew cab’s wheelbase with the shorter bed is equal to 144.6 inches, and with the longer bed, it would be 153.5 inches long. The Quad cab is only compatible with the longer bed and has a wheelbase 140.5 inches long.

Interior Dimensions


Each cab has two rows of seats for three people, so the maximum seating capacity of 2021 RAM 1500 is six. 

Cargo Volume

The width (66.4 inches) and depth (21.4 - 21.5 inches) of both cargo boxes are the same, and the volumes are 53.9 cu. ft. for the 5ft.7in.-box and 61.5 cu. ft. for the 6ft.4in.-bed.  


The front headroom (distance from the roof to the seat bottom) for both cabs is the same 40.9 inches. The Crew cab’s rear row has 39.8 inches, and the Quad cab has 0.06 inches less (39.2).

Hip Room

The Crew and the Quad cabin styles allow the same space for both front and rear seating rows, so all seats’ width is just the same 63.4 inches.
