Unless something has changed, the price difference will put a lot of people in a lurch. The last time I bought a Chevy in 08, an extended cab run about 25K for a base model. To get 4 doors, you had to step up to a base of 33K for more room. There is a lot of people that can't afford this price difference.

I personally prefer 1st, the crew cab with large rear door openings and 2nd, the extended version over the double cab (B pillar with the smaller rear doors) design due to the larger opening to get things like bikes and larger items back there that needs to be kept out of the elements. There are some upcoming federal regulations that seem to be forcing the move to the latter. See link below: "Number 216A will require 100 percent compliance for every vehicle built after September 1, 2015 (model-year 2016). Trucks will have to pass more stringent safety tests. The lack of a permanent B-pillar could make passing those tests more difficult."

My first car was a 1979 Datsun pickup - it had the "King Cab" option!

The 2500HD and 3500HD won't have a "Double Cab" until the 2015 MY....., at the earliest.

I've been considering looking into a new 2014 GM 3500HD Extended Cab SRW (diesel), so now I'm looking at the 2014 Ford F-350 Super Cab SRW (diesel). My garage doesn't have adequate depth for the Crew Cab models.

GM should be announcing the new HDs really, really soon! I would expect that the 2015 would be available by April. There are also some 2013s left. I would check out what is available before rushing over to the Ford dealer.

I can tell you that the interior of the 2014 1500 is wonderful, and that I really like the quietness of the Double-Cab over previous extended versions.

If you are ready to shop, let me know.

I haven't had any luck finding a new 2013 GM 3500HD Extended Cab/Regular Box-6 1/2ft., or a new 2013 Ford F-350 Super Cab/Short Box-6 3/4ft.

I question if GM makes a 3500HD in a Extended Cab/Regular Box-6 1/2ft ......, and don't know if GM's 2015 MY will offer a Double Cab/Regular Box in the 3500HD (under 235" in length).

Ran across this GM release on the 2015 3500HD: https://www.chevrolet.com/2015-silve...sel-truck.html ..... Appears that the 2015 3500HD Double Cab will come only with a Long Box.

Yes, they did announce them really, really soon.

This link shows a Double-Cab with Standard Box.

Also, you are correct that there was no 3500HD in Extended Cab/Standard box config. There was a 2500HD in that configuration.

Looks like the garage may have to grow.... How long is your current truck Bob, IIRC you have the long bed?

My '02' 2500HD, Extended Cab, Regular Box (6 1/2ft) ..... is 227" long.

If my memory serves me correctly, the new 2014 GM Silverado 1500, Double Cab, Regular Box (6 1/2ft) .... is 230" long.

OK, you have the standard 6.5 bed like my trucks have. There are times where I miss the 8' bed my other trucks had, but they were all regular cabs. A crew with an 8' bed would be a bit long....
