#1 of 156 Nissan Titan vs Chevy Silverado
Dec 26, 2005 (4:29 pm)
I been surfin around on different sites mostly Edmunds on the Nissan Titan compared with the Chevy Silverado 1500. I've found that the Titan is a good deal cheaper within compatible models and has higher horsepower and torque. The Chevy beats it out a hair in fuel economy but they are pretty equal otherwise. The specs would seem to suggest that the Titan is the better truck. I love the Heartbeat of America but i'm not above saving a little money for a superior truck. I built and priced a Titan XE King Cab 4x4 with the off road package and additional features and wound up with a $30k dollar truck. I've never been on Chevy and gotten that. What do yawll think of this. Is there any experience with either of these trucks or mechanics that know the problems with them.
By the way, I'm 79CustomD, i look foward to posting and being an active member, any input on the above topic will be appreciated

I think you will be able to beat that price without any difficulty plus there is currently a $2,000.00 rebate on the KC. Make sure you test drive both trucks before deciding. There is no doubt you will be impressed with the Titan! On the other hand don't sell the general short. They (GM) are on the ropes but are coming out swinging with the 2007 models (if you can wait). I'm assuming the Chevy's exterior and interior will mimic the Tahoe which Edmunds has done a good job of tracking. The interior is definitely a huge improvement along with a strong line up of powerful engines (albeit OHV).
What would I do? Well... I couldn't wait, so I ordered a Titan which won't show up until mid-February or later. I did this after test driving all competitors and carefully considering real world experiences posted here. But, I firmly believe the 2007 Silverado 1500 will be a great rig.

Continuing the research I have determined that the Nissan Titan is one heck of a truck! The Titan SE Crew Cab 4x4 with the 5.6L V8 accelerates faster, 0-30mph, 0-60mph, 1/4 mile faster and at a faster speed, Has class leading ground clearence, Has class leading towing capacity and it has class leading Standard horsepower, torque, towing capacity compared with compatible Chevy, Dodge, and F-150s. This is one mean machine here! I'll wait it out awhile but when I get ready to buy, That is gonna be a serious canidate! Tuff truck!

79customd is 14 years old--he has plenty of time to wait! Unless paying cash, he's not even able to buy a car or truck until he turns 18.
Also, 79customd, if you want to talk about 0-60 times, you need another style of vehicles. Trucks have good power, but they are not made for acceleration. They are made for towing.

Just being 14 makes you unablt to read? The stats are ther to suggest that the Titan might be better than the up held F-150. Every time I find something that makes other trucks superior to this one, its not important.
Well than I won't pick on you grownups and your herolded trucks since everything there is to compare it with the other trucks suggest that its three steps behind the others. Than it must just be perfect.
Also, you mean to tell me that you never drove a car until you were 16??? Never researched cars until you were 18???
Maybe thats why you wound up liking the F150.

No, of course you can read. It just shows that you have no experience and have no idea about how to judge trucks. You have read about Ferraris and its competitors, haven't you? Are you skilled enough about them to have any idea what they are like--of course not. Also, the 18 year old reference is due to the fact that you can not sign a contract--not that you can not research cars.
Hey, which bikes are the best? The ones at Target or Wal-Mart?
