The Titan has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The F-150 doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

Both the Titan and the F-150 have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding and available four-wheel drive.

In an emergency stopping situation, many drivers don’t press the brakes with enough force to stop the vehicle in the shortest distance. The Titan has a standard brake assist system to detect emergency braking situations (by how hard and how quickly the brake pedal is pressed) and then automatically apply maximum braking immediately in order to help prevent a collision. The F-150 doesn’t offer a brake assist feature.

For better traction, the Titan has larger standard tires than the F-150 (265/70R18 vs. 235/70R17).

The Titan’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 70 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the F-150 4x4’s standard 75 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Titan has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the F-150.

The Titan has engine speed-sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The F-150 doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Titan Long Bed Crew Cab’s wheelbase is 2.9 inches longer than on the F-150 6.5 ft. bed SuperCrew (159.5 inches vs. 156.6 inches).

The Titan Short Bed SV Crew Cab 4x4 handles at .72 G’s, while the F-150 SuperCab 4x4 pulls only .67 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

For better maneuverability, the Titan’s turning circle is tighter than the F-150’s:

For greater off-road capability the Titan Standard Bed King Cab has a 1.5 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the F-150 6.5 ft. bed SuperCab (10.2 vs. 8.7 inches), allowing the Titan to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Titan Standard Bed PRO-4X King Cab’s minimum ground clearance is .7 inch higher than on the F-150 8 ft. bed SuperCab (10.7 vs. 10 inches).

If the windows are left down on the Titan (except King Cab S) the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the F-150 can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Titan’s speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The F-150’s standard manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the Titan PRO-4X/SL has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The F-150 doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Titan SV/PRO-4X/SL has standard extendable sun visors. The F-150 doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Titan SL Crew Cab’s standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The F-150 XL/SXT/XLT doesn’t offer dual zone air conditioning.

For greater rear passenger comfort, the Titan Crew Cab offers optional rear a/c vents to keep rear occupants more comfortable. The F-150 doesn’t offer rear vents.

Insurance will cost less for the Titan owner. The Car Book by Jack Gillis rates the Titan with a number “3” insurance rate while the F-150 is rated higher at a number “8” rate.

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the Titan is less expensive to operate than the F-150 because typical repairs cost less on the Titan than the F-150, including $36 less for a water pump and $33 less for front brake pads.
