The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Titan is an excellent performer, but lacks much of the segment's advanced technology at this point in the game. The 2015 Ram 1500 is a half-ton favorite, with fuel economy and ride comfort being its main strengths once again.
