I know that is a weird idiosyncrasy with Titans: you get the crew cab but then get a short bed, or the king cab and get a longer bed.
I have a king cab, partially because it's 10k cheaper (or more), but also because I wanted a longer bed. While the back row in the cab isn't overly spacious, I've had three people back there for long trips and they really never complained.

Apparently, that particular model has been having a bunch of issues though.
I haven't really followed Titan in the last 2 years, and I know there was some controversy with them moving to Dodge, but the older Titans (pre 200
always had solid reviews and solid resale.
I have nothing but great things to say about my Titan (2007), other than the gas mileage really depends on you much of a lead foot you have (I can get anywhere from 11mph to 17mph, depending on how I drive it). A V8, 5.6 Litre truck will do that, though.
My only complaint about the Titan thus far is that I can't tow a 5th wheeler if I wanted to (but again, I know that buying this size of truck).
