Trucks with the Longest Beds for 2023
These are the trucks across each size category ranked by bed length based on iSeeCars' analysis.
Several factors define the functionality of a pickup truck, with the length of its truck bed among the most important. Full-size pickup buyers need to match their hauling needs to available bed sizes, with many choosing a long bed truck to ensure adequate cargo and payload capacity. But bed options vary across manufacturers and between regular cab, extended cab, and crew cab configurations, so finding the long-bed pickup within a given truck line can be tricky.
iSeeCars has identified the best trucks as ranked by the longest bed lengths. These rankings cover multiple truck bed sizes across multiple truck categories, including the small, midsize, full-size, and heavy duty truck segments. While short bed or standard bed lengths are available with nearly any cab configuration, stepping up to an extended cab, double cab or super cab model will usually limit longer bed options.
The longest trucks in the full-size categories, including the Chevy Silverado, Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra, offer 8-foot beds that are actually slightly longer at around 97 or more inches. Midsize trucks like the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma are limited to around 72-inch beds, or about 6 feet. The latest versions of the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon saw their longest bed lengths shrink from 74 inches to around 62 inches. Small trucks like the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz top out at just over 50-inch bed lengths, or around 4 and ½ feet.
Beyond bed length, truck buyers have to consider their passenger needs and driving conditions. A regular cab, two-wheel drive work truck may suffice for basic hauling duty, but anything from comfortable rear seats with sufficient legroom to adequate towing capacity to a measure of off-road capability might be as much or more important than an extended bed length for some shoppers.
In addition to maximum bed length we’ve included new and used price ranges, mpg ratings, and base horsepower figures for each truck listed below.
How We Rank These Cars
The trucks with the longest beds rank trucks by their maximum bed length
The maximum bed length is the longest bed length across all trim levels for a given vehicle model. In the event there is a tie, we use iSeeCars proprietary rating of the overall quality of the car (iSeeCars Score) to break the tie.
The overall iSeeCars Score is an analysis of three factors: reliability, resale value and safety. It is calculated based on the latest research and analysis by our data science team. The data analysis comes from over 12 million new and used vehicles in our Longest-Lasting Cars and 5-Year Depreciation Studies, combined with NHTSA and IIHS Safety Ratings.
Vehicles are scored in three categories:
Reliability | 33.3%
The reliability score represents an analysis of iSeeCars' proprietary research on the longest-lasting vehicles.
Value Retention | 33.3%
The value retention score is based on our data science team's statistical analysis and prediction of 5-year depreciation from MSRP to determine which cars hold their value best, using US Bureau of Labor Statistics data to adjust for inflation.
Safety | 33.3%
The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
