Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Titan than in the Ford F-150. The Ford F-150 will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Nissan Titan.

Convenience
With the Ford F-150 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Titan, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Ford F-150 or the Nissan Titan, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Ford F-150 and the Nissan Titan have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford F-150 is about the same width as the Nissan Titan. If you go with the Ford F-150, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan Titan.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford F-150 doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Nissan Titan.

Handling
The Ford F-150 has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Titan, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Titan is clearly the choice over the Ford F-150 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford F-150 and the Nissan Titan.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Ford F-150 as you will the Nissan Titan.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford F-150 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Nissan Titan.
