Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the GMC Sierra 2500HD than in the Ford F-350. The GMC Sierra 2500HD will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Ford F-350.
