Sheridan Showdown: Nissan Titan XD vs. Ram 2500

August 23rd, 2018 by

Thank you for choosing Sheridan Nissan! We are your premier Nissan dealership in the New Castle area. We promise to provide you with the best service, selection and deal on a new or used car.

If you’re searching for a new truck, consider the 2018 Nissan Titan XD. This truck is more capable than our Titan model. Are you between the Titan XD and the 2018 Ram 2500? Allow us to help you make the choice by highlighting some of the Nissan features the Ram cannot offer, such as the best in class basic bumper-to-bumper warranty of 5 years or 100,000 miles (whatever comes first). The Ram 2500 has a 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty.

Capability

The Titan XD offers two engine options, a gas engine and a diesel engine. If you are looking for a truck that needs more power and is capable of heavier lifting for work purposes, you might consider the diesel engine. The 5.6-L Endurance® (not available in the Ram) V8 gas engine delivers 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft. of torque. The available 5.0-L Cummins® turbodiesel engine delivers 310 HP and 555 lb.-ft. of torque.

If you choose a model with a Crew Cab, you tow up to 12,640 lbs.1, with the available gooseneck hitch. There is a maximum payload of up to 2,910 lbs.2 The Titan XD was built strong to get a tough job done right.

Technology

With a truck this size, you might need another set of “eyes” to help you see. Have no fear because we have installed an Intelligent Around View® Monitor that gives you a 360-degree view around your Nissan truck. This is one of the many components of Nissan Intelligent Mobility™, which you will not find in the Ram truck. It is a comprehensive package of features like a Blind Spot Warning and a Rear Cross-Traffic Alert.

NissanConnect® (exclusive to the Titan XD) does just that— it keeps you connected. NissanConnect® is voice-activated, and lets you make and receive phone calls, send texts and more! Additionally, you can also set customizable alerts, be ready in case of emergency, remotely access your vehicle (i.e. remote start, check fuel levels) and find restaurants and gas stations along your route.

Does this sound like a truck you could get used to? Furthermore, the Titan XD also comes equipped with dual zone climate control, so you and your front seat passenger can always set the temperature to your liking. If equipped with the PRO-4X package, your Nissan truck will be ready to take on any terrain.
