Where did you see that the bed is going to be 60" long? I haven't seen that in any of the articles that I've read so far although it's certainly possible that I missed something.IMO, this model has great potential with the crew cab. They've said it will start below 20k. I'm pretty sure that means 19,995 plus destination charges of course, but still...pretty decent price for a 5 seater in any class. The bed is very reasonably 60" long. For comparison, the F150 has a 5.5' bed option, the ranger, tacoma, gladiator, and frontier beds are 5', the ram 1500 and nissan titan beds are 5'7", and the colorado bed is 5'1". I mean, if this bed is 60", it's right where nearly all the other trucks have options of that size. Granted, it surely won't tow or hold as much, but that's not really the point I think.
