  • Safety


    The 2018 Ford F-150 was chosen as a 2017 Top Safety Pick for more than just the tech. High-grade 600-series aluminum alloy replaces the traditional steel frame and body of previous generations. It’s the stuff used for military and industrial applications, so you know it’s tough. The material is both lighter and stronger, reducing the likelihood of dents or collision damage. A sturdier frame can make all the difference in protecting you and your family in case of a vehicle collision.

    Additional technological, or “smart,” features that improve safety include the 360-degree camera with split-view display, Blind Spot Information System® (BLIS®), pre-collision assist, and lane-keeping system. The 2018 Ford F-150 utilizes adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology. This technology enables drivers to set a cruising speed and distance from vehicles ahead. When activated, the program responds to stopped or moving traffic by automatically accelerating or braking the vehicle while maintaining the preset distance.


    Nissan has a conventional steel frame and comes equipped with six standard airbags. The Titan has an additional roof-mounted, side-impact curtain airbag with a rollover sensor and two front passenger seat-mounted, side-impact airbags. For fussy parents with young children in booster seats, Nissan engineers wrote The Snug Kids® Child Safety Seat Fit Guide that provides a list of child seats that are compatible with Nissan’s design and tips for installation.

    Each vehicle comes with Vehicle Dynamic Control, a system programmed to detect when the driver is oversteering or understeering that can correct minor drift by engaging the brakes on specific wheels and reducing speed. The Traction Control System reduces the throttle when it senses the vehicle’s wheels slip or spin, making it easier to regain traction. The Nissan Titan is also equipped with an Anti-lock Braking System. That ABS pumps the brakes when you hit hard on the pedal to prevent the wheels from locking, so you can steer properly to avoid roadside obstacles.

    Despite the technological gadgets that the Nissan Titan boasts, the Ford F-150 has a balance of durable materials and smart technology that keeps its drivers, and passengers, safe.

  • Technology


    Technological innovations for the 2018 Ford F-150 include an array of utilitarian functions. Introducing the class-exclusive remote tailgate release: You can now lock or unlock the tailgate using either the key fob or a switch on the inside door. Ford recognizes its trucks are also a workspace, and we want to make sure the job is easier for you, so install a tailgate stair with lift assist and deployable box steps. These features can make your vehicle safer and more efficient to use.

    Inside the cab, SYNC Connect® can both track the vehicle’s location and check the vehicle’s status, including fuel level and other related statistics. Powered by FordPass™ and available on either Android or Apple, SYNC Connect® remotely accesses vehicle functions so that you can start, lock, and unlock the vehicle from wherever you’re at. The eight-inch LCD on the dashboard contains six menu options and customizable tabs for quick access—My View, Trip/Fuel, Truck Info, Towing, Off-Road, and Settings. You can view this display with the FordPass™ App in addition to finding parking, reserving and paying for spots ahead of time, comparing fuel prices at stations along your route, and receiving vehicle stats or scheduling service.


    Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when one of the tire’s air pressure is low. The Easy-Fill Tire Alert function notifies drivers when the tire has been pumped with enough air, but this feature should not be used as a replacement for a traditional tire gauge.

    The dashboard displays alert from your Tire Pressure Monitoring System and provides, if preprogrammed, turn-by-turn navigation. It is also equipped with a compass and Blind Spot Warning. The cab is installed with all the must-have bells and whistles of the on-the-go generation, including USB ports throughout the cabin, an auxiliary cord outlet, and a 120-volt power outlet. The Nissan Titan has GPS navigation and the NissanConnect® Mobile Apps, which is where you can download Sirius XM®, Apple CarPlay™, or Android Auto™ for your vehicle.

    When in it comes to fancy gadgets, the 2018 Nissan Titan has more to offer than the 2018 Ford F-150. However, for realistic user needs inside or outside of the cab, the F-150 is a perfect match.

  • Performance


    Weighing in at 700 pounds less than previous models, the 2018 Ford F-150 gets an Environmental Protection Agency rating of 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. Lifelong truck owners know that estimated miles per gallon that high is almost too good to be true, but thanks to innovations in design, Ford has made it possible.

    There are four available engine models to choose from, though our standard is the 3.5-L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6. This engine receives an incredible 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Equipped with a Trailer Tow Package, this 3.5L EcoBoost®-powered F-150 can tow up to 13,200 lbs. Whether you are towing a travel trailer or just need to transport heavy items, the Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ helps drivers navigate both the vehicle and the trailer when backing up. Trailers typically move in the opposite direction the driver is steering the truck; the Pro Trailer Backup Assist utilizes a little knob feature installed on 2018 Ford F-150 models that you can twist left or right to manipulate the trailer in the direction you want the trailer to move. There are even more features that you can equip the F-150 with, including LED lighting, stowable loading ramps, a Heavy Duty Payload Package, or a 5.5-ft. pickup box.


    The 2018 Nissan Titan has three available seating options—King Cab®, Crew Cab, and Single Cab—in which the cab can safely carry three, five, or six passengers. The Nissan Titan King Cab® has three different configurations, meaning you can maximize interior cargo space by seating only three passengers or maximize your passenger space by seating up to six passengers.

    Nissan’s Endurance® 5.6-liter 32-valve V8 engine powers the Titan. It gets 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. torque and it has an automatic seven-speed transmission. All Titan models can tow over 9,000 lbs. Each model, except for the Pro-4X series, gets an estimated 15 mpg on city roads and 21 mpg on the highway. The Pro-4X series drops to 20 mpg on the highway. The Endurance ® 5.6-liter 32-valve V8 uses a Direct Injection Gasoline Engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) for the four-valve-per-cylinder design. The new Nissan Titan also has upgraded differential, rugged suspension, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes.

    The 2018 Ford F-150 clearly surpasses the 2018 Nissan Titan in fuel efficiency, functionality, and towing capacity when all the right gadgets are installed. With multiple engine options and accessories to choose from, you can easily customize your Ford for the types of jobs you need it to perform.
