The Nissan Titan XD weighs 1022 to 3430 pounds more than the Ford F‑150. The NHTSA advises that heavier vehicles are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

Reliability Comparison

To reliably start during all conditions and help handle large electrical loads, the Titan XD has a standard 710-amp battery (1100 Diesel). The F‑150’s 610-amp battery isn’t as powerful.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2015 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Nissan vehicles are more reliable than Ford vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Nissan 12th in reliability, above the industry average. With 60 more problems per 100 vehicles, Ford is ranked 24th.

Engine Comparison

The Titan XD’s 5.6 DOHC V8 produces 108 more horsepower (390 vs. 282) and 148 lbs.-ft. more torque (401 vs. 253) than the F‑150’s standard 3.5 DOHC V6. The Titan XD’s 5.6 DOHC V8 produces 65 more horsepower (390 vs. 325) and 26 lbs.-ft. more torque (401 vs. 375) than the F‑150’s optional 2.7 turbo V6.

The Titan XD’s 5.6 DOHC V8 produces 5 more horsepower (390 vs. 385) and 14 lbs.-ft. more torque (401 vs. 387) than the F‑150’s optional 5.0 DOHC V8.

The Titan XD’s 5.0 turbo V8 diesel produces 28 more horsepower (310 vs. 282) and 302 lbs.-ft. more torque (555 vs. 253) than the F‑150’s standard 3.5 DOHC V6.

Suspension and Handling Comparison

The Titan XD has standard front and rear stabilizer bars, which help keep the Titan XD flat and controlled during cornering. The F‑150’s suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

The Titan XD 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 XD’s wheelbase is 29.2 inches longer than on the F‑150 6.5 ft. bed Regular Cab (151.6 inches vs. 122.4 inches).

Chassis Comparison

The Titan XD PRO-4X Crew Cab is 6.9 inches shorter than the F‑150 8 ft. bed SuperCab, making the Titan XD easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

To almost totally eliminate engine vibration in the passenger area, the Titan XD Gas (except Diesel) has a liquid-filled front engine mount. The liquid helps further dampen engine harshness. The F‑150 uses conventional solid rubber engine mounts.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The Nissan Titan XD has a standard tailgate assist feature, which prevents the heavy tailgate from falling with a crash and causing injury. It allows adults and children to easily open and close the tailgate with one hand to better facilitate loading and unloading. Tailgate assist costs extra on the Ford F‑150.

Ergonomics Comparison

The Titan XD’s standard power windows allow the driver or passenger to lower and raise the windows without leaning over or being distracted. Power windows cost extra on the F‑150.

The Titan XD’s front power windows open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The F‑150’s basic optional power window switches have to be held the entire time to open or close them. The F‑150 XLT/Lariat/King Ranch/Platinum’s rear windows don’t close automatically.

If the front windows are left down on the Titan XD the driver can raise them 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 XD’s standard power locks allow the driver or passenger to lock or unlock all the doors at a touch without leaning over, or reaching to the back seat. Power locks cost extra on the F‑150.

When the Titan XD with available tilt-down mirrors is put in reverse, the rearview mirror tilts from its original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirror into its original position. The F‑150’s mirror doesn’t automatically adjust for backing.

Bluetooth wireless connectivity is standard on the Titan XD, connecting the driver and passenger’s cell phones to the vehicle systems. This allows them to use the vehicle’s stereo and hand controls to place calls safely and easily. Bluetooth costs extra on the F‑150.
