Have You Been Thinking About the 2014 Nissan Titan?
When it comes to finding a pickup in Boulder that offers the power you need for both towing and everyday driving, there are many choices on the market. One of those is the 2014 Nissan Titan. The new Nissan Titan attempts to entice buyers by offering:
- A 5.6L V8 engine
- 6-speaker stereo
- An optional backup camera
While the Nissan Titan may have some of what you’re looking for in a pickup, it still doesn’t stand up to what the 2014 Honda Ridgeline has to offer in terms of safety features, efficiency, and handling.
The 2014 Ridgeline comes standard with full time four-wheel drive, giving drivers better traction, while the Titan only has off-road four-wheel drive available. Plus, you’ll have to pay extra to get four-wheel drive with the Nissan Titan. The smart airbags designed for the Ridgeline help to protect passengers better with speed and seat sensors that inform the airbags how much force should be deployed, if they are even needed at all. You’ll also get daytime running lights with the 2014 Honda Ridgeline, which aren’t available on the Titan.
Both the 2014 Honda Ridgeline and 2014 Nissan Titan offer similar fuel economy numbers, but the Ridgeline delivers slightly better efficiency with an EPA estimated 15 city mpg and 21 highway mpg,* compared to only 12 city mpg and 17 highway mpg of the Titan.
Because the Ridgeline weighs less than the Titan it also delivers better handling, giving you a more comfortable ride. Also, while Honda’s pickup truck may be shorter than Nissan’s, it is easier to maneuver and fit into tighter parking spots.
To get a closer look at these two pickups, check out the chart below that gives a side-by-side comparison of the 2014 Honda Ridgeline and 2014 Nissan Titan:
