If you are shopping for a new full-size pickup truck, you owe it to yourself to experience the 2017 Truck Trend Pickup Truck of the Year, the Nissan Titan. From its world-class towing and hauling capabilities to its muscular exterior design and highly refined and technology-packed cab, the new Titan from Nissan represents the next-generation of full-size pickups. Let's compare the specifications and attributes of the award-winning Nissan Titan with its rival from Toyota, the Toyota Tundra to see which full-size truck better meets your work and play needs.
Houston, TX area pickup truck drivers who want to get things done need serious power, torque and towing capacity. With the new Nissan Titan, its standard 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine generates stellar performance. This mighty Nissan V8 delivers 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque that aids the Titan in towing up to 9,740 lbs! Power is routed through a 7-speed automatic transmission and sent to two wheels or all four, when equipped with 4WD.
Toyota's Tundra comes standard-equipped with a smaller, less-potent 4.6-liter i-Force V8, generating 310 hp. Its 6,800-pound maximum towing capacity may leave you wanting more, which is never a good feeling when in the middle of a big towing job. Even with its smaller engine, the Tundra 4.6-liter and its 6-speed automatic transmission cannot return the impressive fuel economy ratings of the new Nissan Titan.
|Specs||2017 Nissan Titan S||2017 Toyota Tundra SR5|
|Fuel Economy (City/Hwy)**:||15 / 21 mpg||15 / 19 mpg|
|Standard Towing Capacity:||9,740 lbs||6,800 lbs|
Beyond its exceptional towing and hauling performance, the Nissan Titan was lauded by Truck Trend as its 2017 Pickup Truck of the Year for its entire package, including its refined cab, fitted with premium materials and the very latest technology features from Nissan. With a roomy and comfortable cabin for up to six passengers and features like Nissan's AroundView Monitor, Tow/Haul Mode and upscale leather treatments available, the Titan exudes style and luxury while it delivers serious performance.
Drivers and passengers can stay comfortable no matter the weather outside, thanks to available heated and cooled front seats, multi-zone automatic climate control and a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel. The latest Tundra trucks from Toyota are offered with similar features in their higher and more costly trim levels, but lack the interior refinement of the fresher and newer design and layout of the Nissan Titan.
