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 RAM 1500 Classic than in the Nissan Titan XD. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan Titan XD and the RAM 1500 Classic.

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). The Nissan Titan XD will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the RAM 1500 Classic, which has a much lower 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 Nissan Titan XD carries a much lower Destination Charge than the RAM 1500 Classic.

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