- Crew Cab (Chevy, GMC, Nissan)

- CrewMax (newest generation Toyota Tundra)
Pickup trucks with space behind the seats and more limited second row seating:These trucks may or may not have rear doors to access the second row. Rear seats are sometimes fold-down versions called jump seats, but designs are moving towards additional comfort in the back, since many trucks are used as family vehicles.
- Extended Cab (Chevy, GMC)
- King Cab (Nissan)
- XtraCab (Toyota)
- Access Cab (Toyota, with rear doors)
- SuperCab (Ford)
- SE Cab Plus (Mazda)

The naming system for individual models gets more complicated and changes fairly often as new trucks are introduced. You'll also see terms such as SE, LE, XLT -- and endless others -- used to describe options packages and trim levels.
