The F-150 offers optional Post Collision Braking, which automatically apply the brakes in the event of a crash to help prevent secondary collisions and prevent further injuries.

Both the F-150 and the Titan XD have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available four-wheel drive, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors, rear cross-path warning and driver alert monitors.

There are almost 3 times as many Ford dealers as there are Nissan dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the F-150’s warranty.

The F-150 has a standard “limp home system” to keep drivers from being stranded if most or all of the engine’s coolant is lost. The engine will run on only half of its cylinders at a time, reduce its power and light a warning lamp on the dashboard so the driver can get to a service station for repairs. The Titan XD doesn’t offer a lost coolant limp home mode, so a coolant leak could strand you or seriously damage the truck’s engine.

The F-150’s 3.0 turbo V6 diesel produces 27 lbs.-ft. more torque (440 vs. 413) than the Titan XD’s 5.6 DOHC V8.

Regenerative brakes improve the F-150 PowerBoost’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Titan XD doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

In heavy traffic or at stoplights the F-150’s engine automatically turns off when the vehicle is stopped, saving fuel and reducing pollution. The engine is automatically restarted when the driver gets ready to move again. (Start/Stop isn’t accounted in present EPA fuel mileage tests.) The Titan XD doesn’t offer an automatic engine start/stop system.

The F-150’s optional fuel tank has 10 gallons more fuel capacity than the Titan XD (36 vs. 26 gallons).

The F-150 has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Titan XD doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

The F-150’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 70 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Titan XD’s standard 75 series tires. The F-150’s optional tires have a lower 50 series profile than the Titan XD’s optional 60 series tires.

For better load carrying, ride, handling and brake cooling the F-150 offers optional 22-inch wheels. The Titan XD’s largest wheels are only 20-inches.

For much better steering response and tighter handling the F-150 has rack and pinion steering, like Formula race cars, instead of the recirculating-ball type steering of the Titan XD.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the F-150 6.5-foot SuperCrew’s wheelbase is 5.6 inches longer than on the Titan XD (157.2 inches vs. 151.6 inches).

For better maneuverability, the F-150 6.5-foot Regular Cab’s turning circle is 12.6 feet tighter than the Titan XD’s (41.2 feet vs. 53.8 feet). The F-150 8-foot SuperCab’s turning circle is 1.3 feet tighter than the Titan XD’s (52.5 feet vs. 53.8 feet).

For greater off-road capability the F-150 8-foot SuperCab has a greater minimum ground clearance than the Titan XD Crew Cab (8.7 vs. 8.2 inches), allowing the F-150 to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The F-150 6.5-foot Regular Cab’s minimum ground clearance is .3 inch higher than on the Titan XD Crew Cab SL/Platinum (9.4 vs. 9.1 inches).

The F-150’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The Titan XD’s parking brake has to released manually.

The power windows available on both the F-150 and the Titan XD have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the F-150 is engaged the driver can still operate all of the windows, for instance to close one opened by a child. The Titan XD prevents the driver from operating the other windows just as it does the other passengers.

In case you lock your keys in your vehicle, or don’t have them with you, you can let yourself in using the F-150’s available exterior PIN entry system. The Titan XD doesn’t offer an exterior PIN entry system, and its NissanConnect Services can’t unlock the doors if the vehicle doesn’t have cell phone reception or the driver can’t contact the service.

Intelligent Access optional on the F-150 (except XL) allows you to unlock the driver’s door, tailgate and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading cargo, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Nissan Titan XD’s available Intelligent Key doesn’t unlock the tailgate.

To help drivers avoid possible obstacles, the F-150 offers optional cornering lights to illuminate around corners when the turn signals are activated. The Titan XD doesn’t offer cornering lights. The F-150 (except XL/XLT) also offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT/Lariat) offers optional massaging front seats in order to maximize comfort and eliminate fatigue on long trips. Massaging seats aren’t available in the Titan XD.

For greater rear passenger comfort, the F-150 SuperCab/SuperCrew has standard rear a/c vents to keep rear occupants more comfortable. The Titan XD S doesn’t offer rear vents.

To quickly and conveniently keep personal devices charged without cables tangling and wearing out, the Ford F-150 King Ranch/Platinum/Limited has a standard wireless phone charging system (Qi) in the center console. The Titan XD doesn’t offer wireless personal charging.

The F-150 (except XL/XLT)’s optional Park Assist can parallel park by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Titan XD doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
