Ok, as promised, here an update on my test drive of the powerstroke. For those of you who didn't read the original post, the dealer knew there was no way he could talk me into buying an F-150 over a Titan, so he thought I would like the new powerstroke, thus an apples to oranges comparison ensued.
I was actually impressed with the Powerstroke. The back seats are up higher, so they were more comfy. It had plenty of power, and quite frankly, I felt like I was at the helm of a land yacht! I happen to like the feel of driving a monstrous vehicle.
The Titan still feels like a hotrod compared to it. If we lived in a Titanless world, I would have to give this truck serious consideration. It comes with a 7 year 100k powertrain warranty, which I understand, would be utilized quite often. The best part of my test drive, is that Nissan did bring the Titan to us and I don't have to consider the F-250. Verdict: While a nice truck, it is overkill for my needs, and there still isn't a truck that with the grin factor of the Titan.
