2020 Nissan Titan vs. 2020 Ram 1500: Compare Trucks

Our fathers knew that the right tool was the best way to start any job. Our fathers also told us to listen closely or something—hard to say, we weren’t really paying attention. 

However, the 2020 Ram 1500 and 2020 Nissan Titan full-size pickup trucks are tools for many jobs: worksite transportation, everyday hauling, mobile offices, off-road excursions, family detail, and venturing into the outdoors.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.4
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Nissan Titan full-size pickup still aims for the margins among pickup buyers, and its value falls down in top trims. The 2020 Ram 1500 has its truck priorities straight, even when it’s cloaked in upscale trims.
