This is the base and the least expensive truck you will find in the lineup. Other two cab configurations are Quad Cab and Crew Cab, both with 4-door and 5-seat layout.

It will be interesting to see what combination with the 2019 RAM 1500 Regular Cab the FCA is about to bring. Currently, we can combine it with standard and long box. Short bed is not going to be available for the Regular Cab. Also, not all trim levels are announced yet, but this configuration will be available for all entry- and mid-range pickups. High-end models, such as Laramie Longhorn, might offer only Crew Cab layout.
