2020 Nissan Titan vs. 2019 Ram 1500

KEY TITAN ADVANTAGES

  • Available TITAN Box in-bed storage system — TITAN offers lockable and removable storage compartments that can be placed along the side walls inside the cargo bed, where they are not visible from the outside. They are accessible without having to remove a camper top. Ram 1500’s available RamBox® system is mounted on the outside of the cargo bed and cannot be accessed when a camper top is in place.
  • Available trailer light check system — The trailer light check system allows one person to check that all trailer lights are operational. The system can be activated inside the vehicle using the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display or from behind the trailer using the Nissan Intelligent Key® fob. Ram 1500 does not offer this feature.
  • Zero Gravity front seats (front and rear on Crew Cab) — The design of TITAN’s standard Zero Gravity seats can help reduce fatigue when driving long distances. Every TITAN has Zero Gravity front seats, and Crew Cab models include Zero Gravity rear seats. Ram 1500 does not offer any Zero Gravity seats.
  • Rear Door Alert2 — TITAN’s standard Rear Door Alert provides a message in the vehicle information display — and later, an audible warning — to alert the driver to check whether an object may have been left in the rear seats. Ram 1500 does not offer a similar feature.
