The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
5.3
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Nissan Titan doesn’t cast the same wide net as other trucks, but its higher starting price comes with good standard features. The 2021 Ram 1500 full-size pickup is heading in the right direction with just a couple of small detours.
