Comparison #4: Features
The Nissan Titan comes with several nice features like a backup camera, a 120-volt household style outlet in the front center console, navigation system and side step rails for easier entry and exit. Perhaps the cleverest feature is the storage compartment tucked behind the driver’s side rear wheel, providing an excellent place to store tools, bags or anything else you want hidden out of sight.
Drivers and passengers will appreciate some of the luxury features found in the Toyota Tundra. The front seats are both heated and ventilated, providing maximum comfort year-round. Also notable is the humongous rear seat area and the reclining rear seats, meaning the front occupants aren’t the only ones being spoiled while riding in the truck.
Ram recently overhauled the 1500 with features like LED turn signals and taillights, a bigger grille for better engine cooling and an adjustable air suspension with five settings. RamBox cargo pockets located on the sides of the bed provide excellent storage, and the truck’s door locks also automatically lock those compartments and the tailgate as well, making the truck and its contents that much more secure.
Chevrolet is about to roll out a redesign of the Silverado 1500, but the truck still comes with some compelling features. The truck can be outfitted with navigation, power-adjustable pedals as well as heated and ventilated front seats. If you need to transport taller items inside the cab, the rear seats’ bottom cushions fold up to reveal a virtually flat load floor.
Ford has hidden some clever features in the F-150 to make it a more livable and utilitarian truck. A fold-down step at the tailgate makes climbing into and out of the bed a much easier proposition. There are also side steps on the sides of the bed to help when adjusting or securing loads. The F-150 also comes with the MyFord Touch infotainment system, which some find difficult to navigate while others enjoy the ability to quickly select songs and perform other functions while driving.
