2011 Nissan Titan vs. Its Competition

Overall, the 2011 Nissan Titan offers fewer powertrain and equipment combinations than other leading full-size pickups.

Although with a V-8 and some cargo-friendly features like the lockable cargo box, the Titan is appealing for personal use, but it's not a favorite of fleets and hard-hat wearers.

If you like what the Nissan has, then this doesn't matter.

The Ford F-150 and Chevy Silverado are the two with the largest number of variations for every sort of use.

The Ford has an excellent interior, especially for those who work out of their trucks, while the Chevy has excellent ride and handling attributes, plus good fuel economy.

And just redesigned this past year, the Dodge Ram has much-improved ride and handling.

Yet another option is the Toyota Tundra, which has perhaps the toughest, most imposing styling in the group, plus a very stylish cabin.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2011 Nissan Titan performs well and has a comfortable interior, but its appeal is more limited than the full-line full-size trucks from the Big Three and Toyota.
7.4
The 2011 Chevrolet Silverado offer strong engines and comfortable interiors to complement impressive toughness and towing/hauling ratings, while the Hybrid model is the most fuel-efficient big pickup on the market.
8.2
All-new engines across the 2011 Ford F-150 model line finally give these full-size trucks strong (yet efficient) performance to match their macho looks.
8.0
The interior may be a letdown in quality, but the 2011 Toyota Tundra is every bit as big and tough as the other full-size trucks.
8.2
The 2011 Ram 1500 vies with the latest Ford F-150 as the most desirable full-size pickup truck you can buy.
