The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Ram 1500 leads full-size trucks in interior quality, gas mileage, and handling; it adds infotainment to the list this year, but we're mixed on its new air suspension, and towing capacity is down. The 2013 Nissan Titan provides strong performance, with a brash style, but it's simply fallen to the back of the pack in many respects.
