Titan- i had a best friend own a 2007 loaded titan and it was awesome!! A very fast truck and would pull for days. The interior looks good, and the exterior is sporty looking as well and goes with the rest of the truck. Titan= good truck!

Tundra- my mom has worked for Toyota for 10+ years now and i have driven EVERY Toyota out there since i could drive. I love Toyota's. they are made outstandingly well! As far as the styling, Grubrunner is right, the RAM's came out with there current styling not long after the Tundra came out with theirs. I think the Tundra looks good (just not as good as the RAM.) The interior is not as stylish as even the 3rd gen Ram's. But that doesnt discount the fact that Tundra's are a damn good truck. i know many people who have a bad image about tundra's, until they drive one. Then they are hooked and never look back. Another good thing about Tundra's, they hold there value BETTER than RAM's and always will. I love my dodge and i love the 4th gen RAMs even more, but the Tundra's are a fantastic truck. Tundra= great truck

Sorry for the rant

The Tundra has a great power train reliability and performance wise but I just don't like the poor quality of the Tundra. I forget where I saw it but I read about a year ago that one of the higher ups in Toyota was disappointed in the interior quality. If that doesn't say something I don't know what does.

Not to mention you cant get a RCSB with the 5.7 Iforce!

FORD has done it right with the engine (now it is Dodge's turn to slap twin turbo's on their V6). but the rest of the truck.... i dont like as much as the Titan, Tundra, or Ram.... shit.... even a Chevy beats a Ford for me.

My dad has a 2010 and although the styling is becoming dated, it is an awesome truck. Have had zero problems with either. If it wasn't for the dated styling and the constant japanese harassment my buddies gave me I'd get into another titan in a heartbeat. Excellent truck

+1, owned an 08 Titan LE loaded up and after 3 years sold it. The wife says she liked it better then my 12 Ford F-150 FX4 E-boost which has nav, roof, heated/cooled seats etc. Soon will be ordering the 13 Ram Laramie so then will see which of the three I will say was my fav.

Titan was nice, had a 08.5 CC. No way it had only 317 HP.

This time, the Tundra was my other choice when looking. In CC and black, it looks sweet. Rear seat room rocks. A supercharger option with warranty, TRD swaybars made it haaaaaard to pass it up. But the Ram interior is so much nicer, and, I liked the Sports looks.

Wifey says that it feels like you rode on the Tundra, but in the Ram.

Correct, never owned one.

My comments are based on driving a late model Titan several times over the course of almost six months recently.

Would you like me to explain?

Toyota builds their trucks in San Antonio, Texas. Rams are imported from Mexico.

The company is still foreign, and chrysler is still domestic. Not that I'm "for" or "against" as I understand the world has changed and it's no longer a local economy, but I still take pride in buying things that say "made in USA" (if they are worthwhile).

I like the titan, it's a good looking truck, and strong. A coworker has one and it's pretty nice. I hate the tundra, it just looks so ridiculous to me. And I've seen so many quality and reliability issues with friend's that have toyotas that I'd never buy one. I also would probably never buy a ford again, after seeing so many issues with them.

We all have our experiences with different makes though. Something else to keep in mind(which I do) is that when you produce a significantly larger volume of vehicles(like ford does) you're bound to have more issues.
