Will the next Gen Ram HD trucks have a true 2nd Row Bench Standard?

Hey guys -

For the 5th time in my 2 year selling career I lost a sale to Ford/GM due to our Crew Cab Ram HD trucks having the "cut-away" middle seat in the second row. Here's his email, and mine:

Hey Rob,
After searching for used and not seeing anything out there, We recently just purchased a new gmc 2500hd. Went with the sle preferred plus package .

You did a good job listening to what we wanted in terms of features. We weren't a fan of how the rear middle seat in the dodge was narrow compared to the adjacent seats. It pretty much ruled out dodge for us.

Thanks for the follow-up,

Best regards,

Hey Bodin,

Thank you for letting me know, I appreciate that. You are not the first, nor the last client to mention the 2nd row middle seat, I'm hoping it is addressed in our next generation truck.

Thank you for the opportunity, contact me any time if I can help.


Anyone know if this is going to be solved moving forward?

My 2500 get's worked daily. It also is the family vacation vehicle as we tow the rv with it. Never felt the indent bench in the back was an issue, not sure why anyone would. I don't have a Ram box but if available would try it. My trucks will always have 8'boxes.

I agree a "real truck" has an 8' box. i'll add also, a real truck has a bench in the front.

Something i could have used today and wish my truck had many times, tie down hooks near the top of the bed rails. So many times the bed is full and the heavy duty tie down loops in the bed are buried.
