2020 Ram 1500 vs 2020 Nissan Titan

Without pickup trucks like the Ram 1500, the world would be a different place. So much of the modern world has been built thanks to these workhorses on the road and off. The Ram 1500 has been an essential part of that history since 1981 before Ram became its own identity separate from Dodge. How can a truck like the Nissan Titan, a pickup first released more than twenty years after the (Dodge) Ram 1500 measure up to that kind of legacy? The answer is complicated, but for the most part, it’s an apples and orange comparison.
