"Started" (or at least most heavily promoted) by Chrysler/Dodge, cab-forward has become more and more prevalent in car designs, especially in North America in recent years. A cab-forward vehicle has many design properties:

- Wheels are located close to the corners of the vehicle. Increases interior space but also increases turning radius.

- Body is more smoothly blended/streamlined. Looks pretty good (in my opinion), but places the a-pillars close to the driver's line of sight.

- Larger windows resulting from larger passenger compartment
