Two of the biggest changes to the upcoming pickup are the replacement of the previous four-door Quad Cab with a larger four-door Crew Cab model and a new 8-foot cargo box option (a 6-foot, 4-inch bed is standard) for the Crew Cab.

A dual-rear-wheel long-box Crew Cab appeared at the when the 2010 Ram HD made its global debut, but we haven't seen a picture of a single-rear-wheel Ram HD Crew Cab with an 8-foot bed until now. Here's a long-box SRW model taking a break from final shakeout testing.

The 8-foot box should make the Crew Cab Ram HD an attractive choice for fifth-wheel towers. It also makes for an imposing footprint, with a 169-inch wheelbase and 259-inch overall length.
