I moved up from a mid-size Dodge. The full-size Titan has been great. I've pulled a 24' center console (4000+ lbs) on a dual axle trailer with no problem. The full backseat fits my 3 kids (including a big car seat), comfortably. I think it's one of the best looking trucks on the road and have even gotten a couple random compliments in the parking lot. Visibility is great and the power rear window is a nice treat on warm days. The ONLY thing I hate is the gas mileage (approx. 13-15 city/25 hwy). This thing kills me when I have to fill up every 7-10 days. And now with gas creeping back up to $4+/gallon I'm forced to buy a second fuel-efficient car just for commuting. But, I will hold onto the truck because I do think it's the best one out there.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
