Brownsville, TX area truck shoppers, have several options when searching for a new half-ton pickup, including the powerful and high-tech 2022 Nissan Titan XD. Nissan's latest full-size truck impresses on many fronts, including its potent V8 engine, extensive standard safety, driver-assist technology, and industry-leading truck warranty.
If you're shopping the half-ton pickup market, you're likely comparing the new Nissan Titan to options like the 2022 Ram 1500. These two worthy competitors offer a range of versions and some excellent capabilities, but how do they stack up against the mighty Titan lineup in critical areas?
The team at Charlie Clark Nissan is eager to assist new truck shoppers with locating their ideal new pickup. That's why we've compiled a comparison review that pits the rugged and advanced 2022 Nissan Titan against the competition.
Powertrain and Performance
A 2022 Nissan Titan puts out 413 lb.-ft of torque with a 5.6L V8 engine that makes 400 horsepower. This is the only engine option, and it is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The latest Titan comes with a standard rear-wheel drive (RWD) or four-wheel drive (4WD) for an additional cost. Regarding fuel economy, the 4WD version of the 2022 Nissan Titan earns up to 16 MPG in the city, and the RWD version gets 16 MPG. The EPA estimates that a 4WD 2022 Nissan Titan on the highway will get 21 mpg. It’s the same number for a rear-wheel drive.
In contrast to the Nissan Titan, the 2022 Ram 1500 has four engine combinations. There’s a 3.6L V6, a 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, and a 5.7L V8 engine. All those engines come with an RWD or 4WD drivetrain. The three engines mentioned make between 260 and 395 horsepower. Between 269 and 480 lb.-ft of torque is produced with those engine options. The fourth engine is the strongest: a 6.2L Supercharged V8, available with the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX. The TRX is only available with 4WD.
New truck shoppers will be happy to learn that all these full-size pickups for sale offer modern connectivity and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, drivers may find it easier to use their connected mobile device in the Nissan Titan. The 2021 Titan boasts a large 8-inch touchscreen as standard equipment, while the Ram 1500 features an even smaller, 5-inch display in its base model. Many motorists will find these screens lacking, so they'll want to upgrade to a pricier edition -- or buy or lease a Titan to enjoy a more prominent and responsive 8-inch touchscreen.
Maneuvering a full-size pickup truck can be tricky in certain situations; that's why Nissan makes available its innovative Intelligent Around View Monitor. This advanced camera setup gives the driver a 360-degree or bird's-eye view of the truck's surroundings, which is a huge help when parking! Ram does not offer an Intelligent Around View Monitor on their half-ton trucks, nor do they provide Rear Automatic Braking, a standard technology on every 2021 Titan!
Drivers rely on their half-ton pickup trucks for serious work, from towing trailers and hauling cargo to daily duties and even commutes. Nissan stands behind the dependability of their pickups, like the new Titan with an industry-leading truck warranty. Every new Titan pickup is backed by a generous 5-year or 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. Beyond Nissan's superb bumper-to-bumper truck warranty is an extensive powertrain warranty that covers the automaker's tried-and-true 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine, automatic transmission, and RWD or 4x4 drivetrain. Ram offers a similar truck warranty but is only suitable for three years or 36,000 miles. If you put your pickup through tough jobs and want a warranty for you, choose Nissan and the 2021 Titan.
