The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Titan performs well, but no longer competes with the rest of the segment in many respects. The 2014 Ram 1500 brings a new turbodiesel to its class-best fuel economy ratings; it's also tops in cabin finish and infotainment, but lags in towing.
