2017 Nissan Titan

2017 Nissan Titan vs 2017 Ram 1500 in Joliet, IL

If you’re on the hunt for a full-size pickup truck that can do so much more than tow and haul, we at Thomas Nissan highly recommend the new and improved 2017 Titan. Not only is it extremely powerful, but its features truly make the most out of every drive. To prove just how great it truly is, we have compared the 2017 Nissan Titan vs the 2017 Ram 1500 in Joliet, IL, so you can see all of the ways it prevails.

We first compared each of their exterior features. You’ll notice right away that the 2017 Nissan Titan sits on bold 18-inch wheels, while the 2017 Ram 1500 only has standard 17-inch wheels. As you cruise down I-80 after the sun sets, the Titan lights up the road ahead with standard LED headlights. In the Ram 1500, you won’t have as bright of a beam from the halogen headlights. Similarly, only the Titan comes with standard with lights over the rear window, so you can easily access items in your truck bed when you’re at the worksite late at night. The Titan even has available ultra-bright in-bed lights, a feature not found within the Ram 1500.

Our head-to-head between the 2017 Nissan Titan vs the 2017 Ram 1500 in Joliet, IL, also takes a look at comfort and convenience features. While both can offer Remote Engine Start, only the one in the Titan also incorporates Intelligent Climate Control. This means, in the winter, the system can adjust the temperature inside the cabin, while also defrosting the windshield and turning on the available heated steering wheel and side mirrors. After an especially long day, you’ll love that the Titan comes standard with Zero Gravity seats, which were designed to reduce muscle fatigue and pressure on your lower back. No such comfort is found within the Ram 1500. Even better, only the Titan comes with available heated rear seats, while all upholstery is water-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about spills.

You want your new pickup truck to be filled with the latest tech, and the 2017 Titan prevails over the 2017 Ram 1500 in so many ways. For starters, the Titan gets you on the road fast with standard push button start – a feature only found in higher trims of the Ram 1500. To stream your personal playlists or make hands-free phone calls, the Titan comes standard with Bluetooth® technology1, which you won’t find as standard in the Ram 1500. You’ll quickly notice the Titan boasts a vibrant 7-inch touchscreen on the center stack, while standard technology in the Ram 1500 doesn’t include a touchscreen at all, and the first available option is 5-inch display.

Since the Ram 1500 doesn’t come standard with a touchscreen, you will only find the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera2 in top trim levels. To compare, not only does the Nissan Titan comes standard with the RearView Monitor3, but top trims kick visibility up a notch with the Around View® Monitor3. Using various cameras around the Titan, you’ll be shown a 360-degree view around your truck, so you’ll be aware of all of your surroundings. No such feature is found within the Ram 1500.

There is a clear winner within our 2017 Nissan Titan vs the 2017 Ram 1500 in Joliet, IL, comparison – the Titan. To see even more of its exceptional features, visit us here at Thomas Nissan to take one for a test drive. You’ll find us open Monday through Saturday at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL.
