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,
Bodin


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.

Rob


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

That cut out for the cup holder does hurt the seat comfort some but at least we have ac vents.
Megacab has cupholders...


I don't see why we couldn't have done this ^ with crew and megacabs.

I haven't been in a mega cab in awhile, does it have cupholders in the floor or just armrest?

I wish I would have gotten a mega.
None in the floor nor the hidden floor storage.

So I found out why Ram has that bump in the middle of the crew cab - Ram actually offers the best ground clearance by having the driveshaft that high. Yes, it takes away from the interior room, but provides peace of mind knowing your driveshaft is further from obstacles.

I will say most truck buyers aren't going offroad, and the comfort side of things is more important IMO.

@Devildodge - Ram is the only one to offer in floor storage. It is only available in a crew cab though, megacab loses the in-floor storage. Funny your friends were unaware of them, I make the same dumb joke about how you can hide "non-alcoholic beverages" in there every time I show a crew cab.

You can't beat the ram for storage. I have it all even the rambox and I love it.
Just lost one compartment to the subwoofer, but it's my 1st subwoofer so I guess I'll keep it. :D
That alpine sound system is phenomenal though!

Rambox is such a polarizing feature - many clients hate the narrowed box. What do you keep in yours?
