4. Average 11 MPG During Test
You shouldn’t expect to get sky-high mileage out of a truck, but when the Ram 1500 is claiming a combined 17 mpg and the EPA estimates for the Titan come in at 14, it’s hard not to feel disappointed.
What’s worse, a week of driving that was equally split between highway and city driving returned a hair over 11 mpg.
Granted, the highway driving involved daily traffic jams, but it still falls far short of expectations.
That would sting less if the Titan stacked up in other areas, but the truck’s 9,500-lb maximum towing capacity pales beside the Chevrolet Silverado’s 11,500 rating.
On the plus side, the 5.6-liter V8 sounds great. Shooting a rifle and driving a truck are both expensive pastimes. It just comes with the territory.
