When you’ve got two trucks parked in your driveway, and the difference in price is only $145, how do you choose? Pickup Truck + SUV Talk Publisher Tim Esterdahl hits all the highlights for each truck in this Ford F-150 vs Nissan Titan video.
We want to know what you think! Watch the video and let us know.
This truck is a thing of beauty with its bright red paint and all-black accents. It is commanding, rugged and ready to go off road.
Starting at the rear the Titan has a cool damped tailgate with a black insert that really makes it stand out. The truck sports Pro-4X branded mudflaps, a spray-in bed liner, has slide rails in the bed for easy cargo tie-down and has a cool bed-step on the left corner of the bumper.
Inside the Titan Pro-4X is a little nicer than the Ford in that it has heated leather seats and a heated steering wheel. It also comes with a Fender sound system. The infotainment screen has been updated to a 9-inch screen, which looks really nice and the gauges on the driver’s display are pretty sharp. And one last thing we can’t forget: There’s a panoramic moonroof with a power roll-back shade.
Under the hood of the Titan is a good ol’ V-8 engine, which sounds incredible. The truck is a 4×4 and includes a rear locking differential, which makes it great for off-road enthusiasts.
The estimated fuel economy for the Titan Pro-4X is 15 mpg in the city, 20 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg combined. That’s pretty standard for a light-duty pickup truck.

The F-150 is Tim’s personal truck, which has a dark metallic blue paint and chrome accents. The stance is a little more hard-working truck and a little less off-road badass.
The F-150 has a drop-in bed liner and a tailgate with a built-in pull-out step for easy entry to the bed. The tailgate also has a tablet or phone holder, a ruler for measuring and tie-down hooks for longer cargo. This particular truck has an on-board generator and some extra power options in the bed.
The XLT trim comes with cloth seats. It also has a big 12-inch infotainment screen, and the back seat just seems bigger in the Ford.
We can’t forget Zone Lighting! Tim’s F-150 is equipped with this cool feature, which he covers in this video and we think it’s really something.

Both of these trucks are made in the U.S. They are light-duty pickups capable of towing a family camper and are priced almost exactly the same.
When looking at the Ford F-150 vs Nissan Titan, it’s pretty easy to see that they each have unique features that make them desirable, so the choice will be a personal one.

Show that you are a true American and buy the Ford.
Considering they are both made in the USA I’d feel pretty American buying either one of them. I really think it comes down to a personal choice on the style.
Hi! I am buying a vehicle for an overlanding build and I can’t decide what to get. Ideally I’d like a smaller full size truck with shorter wheelbase and exterior dimensions as well as around 400HP and good torque ratings. I’m willing to cut high clearance fenders and give her a high quality lift to run 35s – 37s to tackle the Sierra Nevada trails and SoCal deserts but would like to maintain a lower center of gravity. I don’t plan on towing more than 9000 lbs. but will have overlanding gear, skid plates & bumpers affecting payload. I am debating between a newer CPO Tundra, Titan, or F-150, but am leaning toward the Titan. Plan is to install a camper shell with a low profile roof rack on the bed & over the cab. I’m open to regearing & putting in ARB air lockers down the road as well. Please help me decide what I should get and why! I need help! Lol. Open to any recommendations!
