Nissan, Chevrolet and GMC all refer to four door pick-up trucks as Crew Cab trucks rather than Double Cab trucks. Dodge uses the term Quad Cab and Ford refers to them as SuperCrew pick-ups.

The term Double Cab is recognised as being the generic term to describe four door pick-up trucks. These types of pick-up trucks are classified as vans by the HMRC rather than cars which means if you are using a double cab pick-up for business as well as private mileage you will have to pay tax on the vehicle.
