2017 Nissan Titan vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline

When it comes to pickup truck ads, we’re used to seeing the models displayed a certain way. A pickup truck is meant to blaze through muddy trails, tow heavy cargo and generally perform every task you throw at it. We’re not saying you need to lift your cargo with a crane and drop it in the bed of your pickup just to prove you can, but we’ve all seen this cinematic shortcut that attempts to make every pickup truck look as tough as can be. So which are the toughest models on the market today? If you’ve made your way here, you’re comparing the 2017 Nissan Titan vs the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, and what a great comparison. These are two well-known automakers worldwide. What we think you’ll find is that the Ridgeline is a comfortable option for weekend warriors or those looking for light fun, but the 2017 Nissan Titan is the better choice for those who work hard and need a model that can as well.

2017 Nissan Titan horsepower and towing capability

So you’ve had it in your mind that you want a capable vehicle for towing, hauling, and maybe even helping a friend out when they’re stuck in the mud. You probably aren’t imagining yourself in a vehicle that doesn’t tow much more than your average SUV. The 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a towing capacity for some light leisurely activities, but not for the tough tasks.

The 2017 Nissan Titan, on the other hand, has a much more impressive towing capacity, which is necessary for many shoppers and the key spec to look at. Horsepower is a vital area as well, and the Nissan Titan exceeds the Ridgeline here, too. The Honda Ridgeline simply does not offer enough configurations to fit the needs of many shoppers because it only has the 3.5-liter V6 paired with a Crew Cab and 64-inch bed. The Nissan Titan offers more choices, as it has Single and Crew Cab variations, with bed lengths of 67 inches or 98.5 inches depending on the cab selected.

More power and more versatility are found in the 2017 Nissan Titan, and with a starting price that’s almost identical to what Honda offers. The numbers here speak for themselves. Come and schedule a test drive with the 2017 Titan at Fenton Nissan Lee’s Summit today!
