#600 of 1169 Us and the "well-informed"
Apr 14, 2004 (1:17 pm)
If I was "well informed", I would go go the Armada boards and check out how things are going on there in addition to issues here on this board, as it is built at the same plant and shares many components with the Titan. I would find wind noise and interior noise problems, though the wind noise is specific to the Armada, the interior bits and pieces are more similar than not, and thats where the noises are coming from. I also might be weary of a company (while with a good reputation) building its first full-size pickup. This is purely suggestion, I don't intend to make it anymore than that. On the other hand, Ford doesn't have the greatest reputation for launching vehicles, though as of late (2003/04), they have done much better
Funny, I think that all of this bickering has brought me to one conclusion. That these trucks are so similar in function, that now it's only the little nit-picky things that we toss back and forth on this board. So far, it is apparent that they are both very capitable with each having their own merits. Some individuals like merits of one vehicle better, because those cater to that persons needs. Like those here that feel the F-150 is better than the Titan or vice versa.

they are clearly #1 and #2, it would seem.
On the crossbars? The Dr's Armada has 3 cross bars, and two are connected by siderails, and probably are adjustable. The most forward one, is stationary, and not connected by the side rails. It seems his carrier needs crossbars where these 3 will not go. Perhaps the wrong carrier, I don't know, but he's a urologist, so he should be able to figure it out if it will work.

Do you or anyone you know of have any experience towing with the new Titan? I'm interested in how the towing is on a travel trailer or 5th wheel. Thanks

nvbankr: Have you had any experience towing with your Titan? Specifically a pull trailer or 5th wheel? Know anyone who has? Thanks

Just got mine two days ago so I haven't had the opportunity to pull my TT yet. I am not worried about it because many people have pulled trailers and they said it is great. In fact, a magazine rated it as the towing truck of the year. Can't remember the name. Right now, it is hard to get the proper 5th wheel hitch. The manufacturers are just starting to make them.
A fellow from my area got a hitch installed with no problem and he can still use his utilitrac. If you need more info, let me know.

Thanks for your timely response. I've been looking at Chevy 2500's as my wife and I want to get a nice trailer. However, they don't seem to pull much more than the standard Titan, and are more $$$ to drive. I'm pretty impressed with them so far.

im not sure what post it is, but in the 'nissan titan' board, i wrote a lengthy post about towing an 11k lb. TT.

Any idea how to locate the article? I'm new to this Town Hall site and have been searching for your story for over an hour without success.

The Wall Street Journal did an article on how well Ford turned around their performance in the first quarter, totally reversing their trend. It was largely assisted in the turnaround by sales of the new F-150, which were discounted much less than the competition in order to sell them.
