The rear seatbelts optional on the F-Super Duty Crew Cab inflate when a collision is detected, helping to spread crash forces over a much larger area of the body and limiting head and neck movement. This can help prevent spinal and internal injuries. The Titan XD doesn’t offer inflatable seatbelts.

The F-Super Duty offers an optional collision warning system, which detects an impending crash through forward mounted sensors and flashes a bright light and sounds a loud, distinctive tone to warn the driver to brake or maneuver immediately to avoid a collision. The system also pre-charges the brakes to begin deceleration more quickly. The Titan XD doesn't offer a collision warning system.

The F-Super Duty (except XL/XLT)’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane. The Titan XD doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

Both the F-Super Duty 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, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras, available four-wheel drive, blind spot warning systems, around view monitors and rear cross-path warning.

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-Super Duty’s warranty.

The Ford F-Super Duty’s engines use a cast iron block for durability, while the Titan XD’s 5.6 DOHC V8 engine uses an aluminum block. Aluminum engine blocks are much more prone to warp and crack at high temperatures than cast iron.

In the Ford F-Super Duty, the optional 6.7 turbo V8 diesel has a gear driven camshaft to prevent engine damage from a broken camshaft belt or chain. Gears don’t exert side forces against the camshaft that can wear the cam bearings. The engine in the Nissan all use chain or belt driven camshafts.

The F-Super Duty 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-Super Duty 4x4 has a solid front axle with a floating power axle for durability that the Titan XD 4x4’s independent front suspension and exposed front driveshafts don’t offer.

J.D. Power and Associates rated the F-Super Duty first among large heavy-duty pickups in their 2018 Initial Quality Study. The Titan XD isn’t in the top three in its category.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Ford vehicles are better in initial quality than Nissan vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Ford fifth in initial quality, above the industry average. With 4 more problems per 100 vehicles, Nissan is ranked 10th.

The F-Super Duty’s 6.7 turbo V8 diesel produces 140 more horsepower (450 vs. 310) and 380 lbs.-ft. more torque (935 vs. 555) than the Titan XD’s 5.0 turbo V8 diesel.

The F-Super Duty Diesel’s standard fuel tank has 3 gallons more fuel capacity than the Titan XD (29 vs. 26 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups. The F-Super Duty’s optional fuel tank has 22 gallons more fuel capacity than the Titan XD (48 vs. 26 gallons).

The F-Super Duty 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 power windows available on both the F-Super Duty and the Titan XD have locks to prevent small children from operating them. When the lock on the F-Super Duty 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-Super Duty’s available exterior keypad (not available on F-Super Duty XL). The Titan XD doesn’t offer an exterior keypad entry system, and its extra cost 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 standard on the F-Super Duty Lariat/King Ranch/Platinum 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.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors available for the F-Super Duty detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Titan XD doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The F-Super Duty’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Heated mirrors cost extra on the Titan XD and aren’t offered on the Titan XD S.

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

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the F-Super Duty offers an optional adaptive cruise control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Titan XD doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.
