Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The Titan bears many similarities to the larger Titan XD.

The half-ton Titan's chassis is 11.8 inches shorter than the XD, but they share the same 79.5-inch width.
