2018 Ford F-150 Vs. 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD

Maybe more so than any other vehicle, buying the right truck is important. After all, you’re going to be using your truck for more than just getting across town. This vehicle is going to be your lifeblood. It’s going to tow and haul the most important possessions in your life, and may even be something on which your livelihood depends. The right truck has more than just a competitive price tag and a powerful engine, however. It’s got plenty of features and specs that you can customize – building yourself the perfect truck.

When it comes to configurations and available technology, Ford has proven itself to be the leader in Canada, North America and the world. The 2018 Ford F-150 is their most dynamic and scalable truck yet, capable of either serving as a daily driver with surprising capability or an incredible workhorse that can tow and haul over 13,000 lbs. (5800 kg). Today, we’re comparing the 2018 Ford F-150 with the 2018 Nissan Titan, another half-ton pickup that competes with the F-150. Let’s see how they measure up!

2018 Ford F-150 Advantages Vs. Nissan Titan and Titan XD

The 2018 Ford F-150 manages to overtake the Nissan Titan in every metric that’s important to truck drivers. To begin with, we’ll talk about configuration. Both vehicles offer three bed-lengths and two available transmissions, but the F-150 has three times as many engines to choose from.

This means that if it’s more important for you to have lean efficiency from your truck, there’s an F-150 engine for you. On the other hand, if power and torque are what you crave, you’ll find it in the F-150. Not only does the available horsepower of the F-150 blow the Titan out of the water, but that translates into a huge towing and hauling advantage for Ford’s truck over Nissan’s.

You’ll be able to tow more, haul more and do so with a smoother ride, courtesy of the longer available wheelbase and smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. Finally, Ford has invested in more than just raw power for the 2018 F-150. The F-150 includes several trailer management technologies that will help make your towing seem like a breeze. Among them, is Pro Trailer Backup Assist® which give you unparalleled peace of mind when backing up a trailer.

For fleet services, the 2018 Ford F-150 comes in at over $6,000 CAD cheaper than the base Nissan Titan, making it the perfect vehicle to choose for fleet and service needs.
