Nissan Titan vs Toyota Tundra: Performance

When looking for a truck, you expect it to have the most power you can get under the hood. While both of these trucks offer a lot of power, one clearly comes out on top.

In the 2018 Toyota Tundra, you'll receive a 4.6L V8 engine, generating 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque to get you where you need to go with strength. On the other hand, the 2018 Nissan Titan comes equipped with a sturdy 5.6L V8 engine. This engine supplies a massive amount of horsepower, coming in at 390 HP along with a torque of 394 lb-ft, making for a powerful ride that's hard to beat.

Additionally, the Nissan Titan's engine is paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission, while the Toyota Tundra only comes with a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic transmission. This gives Nissan drivers more of a chance to tackle the city streets and off-road with ease.

2018 Nissan Titan vs 2018 Toyota Tundra: Capabilities

Trucks tow. It's what they're best known for, and with these two models, there's no exception. With the powerful engine inside of the Nissan Titan, along with the correct configuration and equipment, you'll be able to haul up to a whopping 9,740 pounds behind you.1 This is in addition to the generous payload of 1,940 pounds, as well.3

The Toyota Tundra, however, can only tow up to 6,800 pounds standardly. The payload is also less than the Nissan's, weighing in at 1,600 pounds. Though still impressive for a pickup truck, it doesn't compare to the towing power that the Nissan Titan possesses.

In the Nissan Titan, you'll find all the Nissan Intelligent Mobility features. This includes an Intelligent Around View® Monitor, allowing you to see 360 degrees around your truck. With this, you'll be totally aware of your surroundings. Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Front and Rear Sonar Systems are also available for added protection.

The Toyota Tundra's Toyota Safety Sense™ P system differs slightly, and includes a Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic High Beams, and cruise control. Though it does feature a camera, it only shows you what's behind the vehicle-not all around.
