While the 2013 Nissan Titan does come with a single V-8 powertrain, it's actually choice and seemingly endless variations and ordering combinations that seems to delight full-size truck shoppers.
And to that, the Titan offers relatively few choices.
The Ford F-150 now has four new engines, all with relatively good gas mileage and muscular power ratings, as well as some standout features such as Sync Bluetooth connectivity widely offered throughout the lineup.
The Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are also dated, although their vast combinations of powertrains and bed lengths make them a great choice for commercial duty, or for shoppers who want a truck for a special purpose.
For 2013, Ram is giving the 1500 a serious refresh, with fuel-saving technologies like engine start-stop and a new eight-speed automatic transmission, as well as interior improvements that may make what's already a class standout even better.
Meanwhile, the Toyota Tundra stands as perhaps the most direct rival to the Titan; its overwrought styling--seemingly fueled by a luxury-car designer and a craftsman overdoing it on energy drinks--can put some people off, although it's a good performer.
