Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab may find themselves a little more squished in the Nissan Titan than the RAM 3500. The Nissan Titan offers just a little more head- and legroom than the RAM 3500, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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 3500. 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 3500 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Nissan Titan is about the same width as the RAM 3500. If you go with the Nissan Titan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM 3500.

Handling
The Nissan Titan has a significantly smaller turning radius than the RAM 3500, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 3500 is clearly the choice over the Nissan Titan for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Nissan Titan and the RAM 3500.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Nissan Titan doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the RAM 3500.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Nissan Titan as you will the RAM 3500.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Nissan Titan over that of the RAM 3500.
