This is key. Just built a Crew Cab Pro4X and a Crew Cab Lariat and tried to get them basically the same. MSRP was almost dead on $5k more expensive to have FORD stamped all over your truck.Very nice. Yes if Ford of all companies need to go after the Titan then maybe the Titan has officially arrived. I could t read the fine print but I would think it said “In order for our Ford to be better than the Titan you have to spend 5,000 dollars more in add one to make it as good as the Titan”. Lol

Yes amazing how instead of the car companies doing real engineering to solve mpg they come up with Annoying BS like thisThis is key.

Although, if Nissan does not give us the ability to turn off the ICC in the 2020 Titan I will not buy it. Period. It could be the best, cheapest truck ever, and if I can't have normal "dumb" cruise control I won't get it.
I don’t worry about MPG. My point was the government mandates to increase mpg is why we have these stupid engine shut offs, 8 cylinder to 2 on the highway etc... to many gimmicks instead of designing a lighter vehicle or more efficient engine. The tech is all wrong for what they are trying to do and it makes driving these vehicles very annoying.You can buy a Tesla Truck in a few years and won't have to worry about MPG.
This is happening in the motorcycle industry as well regarding mandated safety features and emissions. Driving up the costs as well as driving manufacturers to have bikes built in India and Thailand for the lower labor costs.I don’t worry about MPG.

Your post is making me glad I bought a 2019 'S' trim without all the "Nanny" safety features. Of course a lot of my driving will be towing and I don't use cruise control while towing so I can maintain more control of what is going on.Getting off topic with the ICC thing (my bad), but it's not the fact that it's there. It's the fact that it's way too aggressive, doesn't work with any type of even the finest mist, and the distances for a single setting are speed based. If I'm going 75 coming up on a truck doing 55 with the lowest distance setting it'll kick in anywhere between 200 and 500 feet away. And it SLAMS on the brakes. On the lowest setting, at 60mph, it's supposed to leave 90 feet. I'm fine with that distance, but I'm not changing lanes to pass a truck 500 feet away after having my speed drop 20mph. It's just not good, and it can be more dangerous than not having it. Unfortunately, you can't use cruise control without it so we're all left either dealing with it or driving with our feet, which is more dangerous because it adds in the human factor.
Back to the commercial, I'm not surprised they made one for everyone. They didn't actually put a Titan IN the commercial. It probably cost them an extra hour of time to look up stats and run a voice over. Like I said previously though, to get the same truck you're looking at at least $5000 more. The Titan gets a lot of things right, but for me at least they get several quality of life things wrong. The 2020 is going to have to really impress me to stay loyal.
