I'm in ontario as well. Over 7000km in my sv premium. Couldn't be happier. Shop carefully in ontario dealers are all over the map. If you are near lindsay economy wheels is highly recommended

With pricing mentioned, @SuperTitan did you start shopping around yet and get prices dealers are offering? With the hype slightly dying down I think at this point we might start to see better prices.

I haven't gone checking out dealers yet, I might wait it out a bit until after the NY autoshow lol perhaps the hype will die down after that ?

Are you thinking of getting the titan too?

The ride is great.

Yeah some of the city dealers really don't know trucks. Especially if you have a truck to trade in. They don't know the market at all. I bought in January and with our trucks being shipped to the U.S. we are getting good dollars for our trade-in. But with that said the difference from the dollar to January to now, my tradein would have been worth almost $5000 less if I did the deal today.

You can wait and that might be a good idea but inquiring in now might reveal pricing in line with what is ideal to you and ideal among what others have come across.

Still thinking about it, waiting to see what owners have to say in their long term reviews since that gives a real sense for how the truck is, compared to some reviewer that had it for a few days or a week.

Indeed.

I agree with you. I'm in no rush for an upgrade anyways. Hoping to see more reviews to decide.

As I said I'm from ontario.
I didn't ship the f150 to the states. The Nissan dealer wholesaled my tradein to the states so I got extra value taking advantage of the extra low Canadian dollar at the time.

Lucky you.

How's the titan compared to the f150?

Would you go back to the f150 or is the titan alot better?

The only good about the ford was the 2.7 and it was a sporty truck to drive. You won't get sporty out of the xd.
People will argue with me but I saw first hand. There is too much expansion and contraction in that new alum body in our climate for my liking. Yes other brands have used all alum for years but not as thick as the ford.
Every thing rattling was too much for me especially the colder it got. I'm glad I didn't own a black one as well lol.
So no I didn't have a good experience.
My 2012 titan was the best truck quality wise i had owned to date.
The xd is proving to be better on fuel then the ford 2.7 I had so I'm very happy with my xd. No rattles and no issues so far.
Some guys are starting to get better pricing on the xd now, I got a great price on mine in January.

That's the sort of response I was surprised to see of it and my first experience with that was from TFL truck. They are a reputable source for information and actually know what they're talking about, unlike many publications out there. Even towing with that 2.7 was a concern but it proved to do well, exceeding expectations of many.

But we shouldn't be all too surprised, after all they are Ford :D

The 2.7 is hands down one of the most powerful engines I have drove in a modern 1/2 ton. That coming from a former late model hemi owner and the 5.6 titan. I have also spent considerable time in a newer 5L ford. The 2.7 out tows them all, that's towing roughly an 8000lb travel trailer. But the payload is stupid low with the 2.7. I drove the 3.5 eco as well, but still didn't feel as strong lower end.

Thanks @atc for the review!

In the end, performance is #1 for me. As much I would love a sportier looking truck.

I rather have the quality of the truck too.

With your review, sounds like the titan is a reliable truck.

What was the deal like that you got?

Yeah I was kind of surprise too lol

I was actually depending on the titan and the ram rebel.

Now I feel like i'm going to cut out the Ford models out of my decision :laugh2:

The ram rebel is nice but you have to careful with payload on the ram if you are towing. I have owned many ram 1500's and know they need their share of maintenance to keep them on the road.
As I said be careful of the city dealers who don't know trucks. I got a great deal because of my tradein. One city dealer was $20,000 more overall to do the same deal.
I ended up being only a few thousand more then a similar but less equipped ram ecodiesel that had $14,000 off at the time. But like I said if I had of waited until now to do the deal I would of lost almost $5000 because of our improving dollar. I bought the week our dollar got to its lowest.

Ford has taken a lot of material out of their trucks. I'm not sure if its to make them lighter or cheaper to build or both.
To me, it seems that they are turning them into rinky dink mechano machines and expecting top dollar for them


I drove an excursion 7.3l diesel for 16 years and it was ok but the Titan XD is a much nicer machine in my opinion and I'm looking forward to putting it through its paces this summer.

Is that why you switched to the the nissan titan? Since the maintenance is on-going in order to keep the ram running with the towing.

That's a close call to tradein at a good deal before the dollar dropped.
