I've been looking at the titan for about a month now, and today thought I'd go check out some of the competition. Went to the local Ford dealer and took a shiny new club cab f-150 lariat out for a spin. After reading all the comparison reviews about the 2 trucks, I was expecting the interior to be overly plush. It was not. Several reviewers that placed the ford over the titan cited a "refined" interior. I was actually very disappionted.

I decided that I had better wait until I had actually driven the truck to make my final descision. So the salesman hopped in and away we went. Everything about this truck screamed mediocrity. Power: yeah it was there, but nothing that blew me away. Throttle response seemed very slow compared to the Titan. Noise: Yes, and plenty of it. I noticed the titan really lets you know that youre driving a BIG V8 when you step on the gas. The F-150 just seemed overly noisy nearly all the time. The gauges were blocked partially by the steering wheel, and moving the wheel to where I could properly see the gauges resulted in what I felt was a rather uncomfortable position, it was too high for my liking.

Coming away from the experence, I was filled with a sense of.....well, nothing. This truck left no real impression on me. Nothing seemed that bad really, but nothing stood out as being great either. Sure she may be getting alot of attention right now because she's the new girl, but give her a few months and she'll just be the ordinary looking little brown haired girl that spends all night sitting alone in the corner because nobody wants to dance with her anymore.

After testing the two (F150 and Titan) back to back, I have agree with the mags. The interior built quality of the F150 is better. Hit your hand on the door panels and you will see, not as tight as the F150's. I see gaps between plastic trims in my SE. The ride/handling of the F150 is more refine and more like a sedan which many people refer (not me). About noise, I thought the Titan produce much more noise (engine/muffler) than the F150.

Other than that, I like the rest of the Titan.

I agree that the ride of the F150 didn't leave much impression. If you want a fun, sporty truck, pick the Titan.

After Driving the F150 and the Titan back to back I could not see why the f150 was getting such rave reviews. I found the F150 to generate more road noise, less power, was way less comfortable and I didn't like the interior at all. (I hate white gauges). The seats felt like I was sitting on stadium seating. The F150 also had no real innovative features like the Titan (Utilitrack, side compartment). I found the sound system in the F150 to be terrible as well.

As far as styling goes I prefer the Titan. You know you are making a real statement with styling when some like it and some don't.

IMO the F150 had nothing over the Titan. Just my 2 cents.

Ordered a CC LE in Sparkle Red (same as Red Brawn in US) the next week. Supposed to be here in May.

I drove them back to back too. The ford i liked the interior and i think it looks like a "Tuff" truck now! Power however was dissapointing! I could not tell the difference between casual driving and florrin it! I actually thought the titan was ugly at first but it grew on me, especially after i drove it!
