But did you notice that the T was $10K cheaper than the Ram and actually the least expensive truck of the bunch? And yet was pretty much the best performing of them all?
That is what I most loved about my Titan, such a fun truck to driveit still felt light on its feet and, dare we say, fun to push hard.
amtitan808: I think as a relatively new owner with less than 4000 miles on my Titan, I always love turning the key and getting ready to roll out for my next adventure...even if it is just rolling to wally world.And the best qoute..."Nonetheless, each night every tester wanted to drive the Titan back to the hotel." That right there is the true testament of our Titans.
I like the craft beer analogy! That sums it up for me as well.I still hold true to the fact that almost anyone who has test driven a Titan with the intention of buying a truck, usually ends up buying a Titan. So what if the base design was released in 2004? When I upgraded to the Titan late last year, I paid $17,000 less than a comperable Ford/Chevy/Dodge because they don't have to pay for constant re-designs. I'll take $17,000 over the few areas where the new models are better than the Titan, even fuel mileage. Throttle is touchy and only lends itself to jack rabbit starts? Maybe they don't like that, but I consider that to be a feature! Additionally, Nissan has a lot of standard features that I would not be without (spray on bed liner, Utili-Trac). These are usually cheap looking options on the other brands from what I have seen.
I think Titan owners are alot like craft beer drinkers. Sure Miller/Bud/Coors are beer and will do the job, but a craft beer has more taste and that extra something that you can't get from the mainstream brands.
Yeah the new F-150 is not a very masculine truck. It's like the metrosexual of the group.Ford looks like a shoe box. Titan looks much better, but the new Ford motors are pretty cool
If you're not all about "must buy new" then there are a lot of good deals to be had from used Titans... If I was to buy now, I'd get a low mileage used one and spend money saved on mods...I'm a bit different than most here, I do not own a Titan. I am however looking at trucks. I was going to buy a Ford Raptor, but am now thinking the Titan is a more wise move...The Raptor is the only Ford I considered even though I am in a "Ford Family".
I read the more recent review, and to me it sounds like they really still liked the Titan, but the "new" of the ford and dodge were worth more than what they really liked. I am slightly disappointed that Nissan never gave the Titan much of an update...but I still like what they came up w/ the first time so no real complaints
