2015 Nissan Titan vs. 2016 RAM 1500 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan Titan will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the RAM 1500.

Convenience
The RAM 1500 requires less frequent visits to the gas station than the Nissan Titan, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Nissan Titan will have less of an impact on your bank account than the RAM 1500. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Nissan Titan and the RAM 1500 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan Titan is about the same width as the RAM 1500. If you go with the Nissan Titan, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the RAM 1500.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Titan doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the RAM 1500.

Handling
The Nissan Titan has a significantly larger turning radius than the RAM 1500, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the RAM 1500, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Nissan Titan due to its slightly better towing capacity. The Nissan Titan has a little less horsepower than the RAM 1500.

Utility
You'll be able to bring along a larger crew with the Nissan Titan than the RAM 1500, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The Nissan Titan comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the RAM 1500.
