Comparison Review

Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the RAM 1500 than in the Nissan Titan. The Nissan Titan offers just a little more head- and legroom than the RAM 1500, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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

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.

Since the Nissan Titan is much slimmer than the RAM 1500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Nissan Titan is slightly shorter than the RAM 1500, which may make it easier to park.

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

When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Titan is clearly the choice over the RAM 1500 for pulling heavy loads. The Nissan Titan has a little more horsepower than the RAM 1500.

Due to its much higher torque, the Nissan Titan does a much better job of transmitting the horsepower of the engine to the wheels than the RAM 1500.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Nissan Titan as you will the RAM 1500.
