Default Bed Length on TR40?

Register to stop seeing this ad!

Does anyone know the bed length on the TR40? One source claimed it's 6 feet, but it has to be shorter than that comparing photos of the 7.5 foot bed on the TR20.

I'm mainly wondering if it's long enough to haul a motorcycle with the tailgate down.

Finally answered my own question. According to the Aussie site, the bed on the 4-door is 1489 mm long which is 58.62 inches. Bed depth is 550 mm which is 21.65 inches.

I figure my motorcycle will fit with the tailgate down with not much room to spare. I can live with that.

Yes, that bed is big enough for me too. I would be replacing a Ford focus station wagon. So it wouldn't have to be very big to be an improvement. It does however need to get at least 30 miles per gallon or I will not be able to justify buying it.

Too bad the bed length isn't 6 feet, I would have no problem getting the TR40 then. I guess I will just have to wait until they show up and look at it.

I wonder why they didn't go 5 inches more on the long bed and made it so it would take an 8 foot plywood and close the tailgate. Seems to me it would sell better here in the US.

In addition to making the box longer, they would need to make it wider to allow the ply to sit between the wheel wells. I think they are hoping to sell the same bodywork in many markets around the world, so it's a cost thing. I don't know if plywood is 4 feet by 8 feet everywhere in the world, it would surprise me if it were.
That said, it would be nice if the bed fit a sheet of ply because I carry it pretty often. I also carry lumber and molding up to 16 feet . . .

I have one on my 92 Ranger and have hauled 16' 2x4's / plywood & drywall.
It may not look as functional but leaves the bed open for other goodies.

Yup, lumber racks are outstanding tools! I expect one or more to show up on the market after the truck launches. A cross-bed tool box is another great tool to have on board (I use mine as the "trunk" since the 7.3 is a regular cab).
cheers,
