The pickup truck segment is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the automotive industry at the moment. That rapid expansion means that there are a lot of competitors gunning for the established pickup truck models like the Nissan TITAN and the Ram 1500. While both of these trucks deliver some incredible benefits, the 2018 Nissan TITAN comes out ahead in some key areas.
Power that comes standard
Above all else, drivers expect pickup trucks to be powerful vehicles. The 2018 Nissan TITAN certainly won’t disappoint in regards to that vehicle aspect, with a standard 5.6-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine delivering 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.
The Ram 1500’s 3.6-liter V6 24-valve VVT engine only delivers 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque. If Ram drivers want more than that, they will have to pay a pretty penny to receive the same level of power they could find with the TITAN.
Exclusive Nissan features
As trucks grow more popular with each passing year, they also grow more advanced. Both the Ram 1500 and the Nissan TITAN possess some of the industry’s latest and greatest tech. Still, if you want the best in intuitive features that only Nissan can offer, than the TITAN is the clear choice to go with. 2018 Nissan TITAN drivers can utilize the model’s available Nissan Navigation System, complete with seven-inch touchscreen, to set a course for any journey, while the Nissan Intelligent Key® and Push Button Ignition allow that journey to begin at a moment’s notice.
Added safety systems
The 2018 Ram 1500 and the 2018 Nissan TITAN provide drivers with an advanced suite of safety systems. Features like a rear view camera can be found on both pickup trucks.
The Nissan TITAN, however, carries safety systems that drivers won’t find with the Ram 1500. Nissan’s advanced Air Bag System, for example, helps protect passengers from dangerous impacts during an accident.
In a growing pickup truck segment, the 2018 Nissan TITAN has found a way to still stand out. Discover more about this powerful pickup during a visit to Nissan of Visalia.
