2021 Nissan Titan vs. Its Competition

Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

Like the Toyota Tundra, the 2021 Nissan Titan operates on the fringes of the light-duty pickup truck segment.

It lacks the configurations and powertrain options of the F-150, as well as the refinement of the Ram 1500.

The GMC and Chevy siblings have all the capability and options of Ram and F-150, but the uninspired interior is a disappointment.

The Tundra is in need of an overhaul to regain relevance.
