Nissan Titan, Toyota Tundra, Exterior, Engine, Interior, Truck

I finally test drive the Nissan Titan over the weekend, and came away impressed. The Titan has much more to offer than the Tundra Double Cab does. Much more power of course, but it was roomier on the inside, much more than I anticipated. It has a rear sonar device that lets you know how close to something when backing up. The one I drove was fully loaded, it was an LE with Navagation and a DVD. The Titan is something to really consider. It is a monster truck, an impressive one.
Though I test drove the Tundra Double Cab briefly I knew what to expect. The Tundra is a much more smoother ride than the Titan. I really want the Tundra, but what happens if I eventually need more power? Does anyone know when Toyota plans to build a larger engine? I was told last year it would be soon. Could it be mid-year 2004? Or, will it be next fall? Will it be a 5.5 liter engine?

I don't think Toyota has started pouring for the foundation in San Antonio yet.

Soooo... where did all the lurkers who thought that the Nissan(Renault)Titan was the greatest thing since sliced bread go ?? Especially since Detroit, things are mighty quiet. Maybe they went back to the Nissan boards to" heal up "

also waiting for a tundra poster to post something worth responding to...so far, the titan is better in every way that has been discussed.

I'm buying the Titan for a lot of reasons. But I have to say I think the Tundra DC does ride a little better. Oh ya, and percieved proven reliability. I can't think of anything else though. Just waiting on my Titan
#60 of 354 Starter replacement....

is a lot easier on the tundra. Nissan placed the titan starter under the intake manifold. Let's see, the BIGGEST truck in class, yet they couldn't find a more service-friendly place for the starter.
I keep thinking about the new Altima my wife and I test drove last summer. It looked sweet and really had some guts, but it sounded like the plastic trim around the radio and arm rest was going to fall off 'cause it was squeeking creaking so much.......(any I'm a Mustang and VW Passat owner, both of which are notorious for squeeks and creaks).

if you still do all your own repairs, you are in the minority. the goal isnt to make it easy for you to do...its to make it so difficult that you pay the dealer to do it.
#62 of 354 the titan is plane better

The titan offers a bigger engine, more torque, more horsepower, more towing capacity, some of the best interior space in its class, a welded ladder fully boxed frame, utility bed for more versatility, optional dvd navigation and entertainment system.
The Tundra Offers a c-channel frame at the back with rivets which will lead to more body roll and a noisy ride in the future. The engine has almost the same horsepower of a 3.5 altima, The tundra only has a colum shifter and some of the ugliest wood grain ever seen in a truck
