2008 Nissan Titan vs. Its Competition

2008 Nissan Titan SE
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

When it comes to light-duty trucks, the 2008 Ford F-150 and the Chevy Silverado are the two big dogs.

They go at it every day.

The Ford gets a complete makeover in 2009, while the Silverado was completely revamped for the 2007 model year.

The Dodge, a perennial third runner, will also be all new for 2009 (the current 2008 Dodge is the same vintage as the 2008 Nissan Titan, meaning that both are pretty old in dog years).
