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 Ranger. The Ford Ranger offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Nissan Titan, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Nissan Titan you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Ranger, due to its tank size and 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). Clearly, the Ford Ranger is a better financial choice over the Nissan Titan, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Ranger carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Titan.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Ranger is much slimmer than the Nissan Titan, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Ranger, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Titan.

Drivetrain
The Ford Ranger offers much less torque than the Nissan Titan, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Ranger has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Titan, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Titan is clearly the choice over the Ford Ranger for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Ranger is clearly outclassed by the Nissan Titan.

Utility
The Ford Ranger has less seating than the Nissan Titan, making the Nissan Titan the better choice if you often have passengers.

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