The diesel-powered Dodge Ram Mega Cab isn't just as forceful as a locomotive, it's the train, too. It has club car comfort in the biggest back seat of any pickup.

This thing is huge - 20.6 feet long with a 52.5-foot turning circle. It's longer than a standard parking space. If you really need a full-size pickup and it has to do double duty as the commute vehicle and weekend toy hauler, then it's not likely an owner would outgrow a pickup with this much back seat room.

Limousines aren't as spacious.

The Mega Cab is exclusive to the Heavy Duty series of Ram trucks. The back doors are full-size, not the shorties used on the Quad Cab.

Its "short" 6.3-foot bed is still plenty big for hauling. But there's also as much cargo space in the back seat area as some trucks have in a 5-foot bed.

There are 44 inches of back seat legroom, 40.5 inches of headroom, a nearly flat floor and the seatbacks fold for an expansive flat space accessed by doors that open to 90 degrees with a 34.5-inch opening.

Those large boxed goods from Costco will fit back there without fear of theft or being blown out of an open bed. Or there's room to load saddles, fishing gear or to secure a dog kennel in air-conditioned comfort.

These heavy-duty trucks are the tow vehicles for work and recreation. Their gross vehicle weight rating puts them in a category that does not require EPA fuel mileage ratings. And at these curb weights, most users are more concerned with how well the truck performs rather than how many miles per gallon it gets - within reason, of course. There have been complaints from new Super Duty Power Stroke diesel owners that fuel mileage is low, about 6 mpg while towing.
