Questions--

1. Does the Armada have the same chassis?

2. Why is the torque rating different?

3. Are the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times the same for the stock setup?

1) Yes, same frame.

2) Different torque convertor in the tranny?

3) I imagine the Armada would be slower because of the added weight of the cab.

I think the Armada has higher hp and torque ratings.
Not sure which is faster 0-60 and 1/4 mile.

The front halves of the frames are the same. Different wheelbase and rear suspension IRS vs. solid axel. I think the difference in torque (379 vs. 385) has something to do with the tides, I know of no difference with the engines except for exhaust system is about 18” shorter in the Armada. HP is the same (305). The Titan might be faster because of less curb weight or the Armada might be faster with more weight over the rear wheels, take your pick.

Let's do it!!! I don't imagine with the weight difference the Armada would have a chance. Does the Armada have the same rear gears?

The two rear gear ratios (with Big Tow and without)are the same in the Armada and the Titan. In magazine tests the Armada was faster in 0-60 tests. May be due to better traction on the Armada because of more weight on the rear and the independent rear supension.. With no tire slipage you don't have the VDC and engine torque control cutting back the engine power.

Guys, Can't we all just get along? :)
Let's go Hemi hunting instead. Or even blow away some honda accords and other unsuspecting people.

I can def. see how that weight would help keep from spinning them tires. The Titan if you don't feather the heck out of it wants to spin pretty good. Especially if you power break before you take off. We all get along!!! Hell...I'd race another Titan if he wanted tooo...then it becomes a little more at whose better at getting them tires to stick. It's all in fun.....
