I am glad E that they have finally made a truck that fits your needs!!
I think the smaller Crew Cabs for Dodge were an older thing. For 2012, we sat in each of the big 3. In the backseat - by measurements, they were all within an inch or four here or there. By feel, though, told some magical other story:
- the Chevy was, by far, the tightest feeling (leg room was cramped)
- the Ford felt like it had the most butt room, but felt tighter in the shoulders area
- the Ram felt tighter than the Ford in the butt, roomier in the shoulders, equal to the Ford in the legs but had this weird amazing amount of head room
We went into truck shopping with a slight towards Dodge because we were trading a Durango that treated us really well. We sat in the Dodges first, then Ford and then Chevy. We didn't believe what we were feeling and felt like we had imagined the roominess feeling of the Dodges, so we went back to them at the end.
For us, we spent more time in the back seat climbing around to see how it felt than we did anywhere else. We regularly carry 6 of us (2 kids, 4 adults) and wanted to be comfy. It's just what fit us best.
But now... the Mega Cab... hmm.
