The Ford F-150 has long been the king of the market, sitting in the number one pickup truck spot. Now, the 2017 Nissan Titan has enough benefits to rival the F-150, putting up a fight as a worthy competitor. If you’re shopping for a new pickup truck, perhaps you’re wondering if a rival like the Titan could be a better fit for you than the F-150. Here’s what we at Bates Nissan think.
When it comes to drive comfort and cabin design, the Ford F-150 certainly is no stranger to comfort. However, the 2017 Nissan Titan, equipped with Nissan’s unique Zero Gravity seats and providing a body that’s surprisingly rigid for improved ride comfort, the Nissan Titan wins out in this category.
If we are looking at base value alone, both the F-150 and Titan are good deals, but the entry-level Nissan Titan comes with better standard features like a USB port and Bluetooth connectivity, a 5-inch full-color touchscreen, and a six-speaker audio system.
You’ll be surprised to know that the Nissan Titan has comparable engines to the F-150 in terms of power, and when comparing their range-topping options—Nissan’s 5.5-liter V8 and Ford’s 5.0-liter V8—the Titan beats the competition by 5 horsepower.
While the Ford F-150 has its benefits, those looking for an everyday ride in a capable pickup truck with plenty of base value will love the 2017 Nissan Titan.
