Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra are full-size, body-on-frame pickup trucks from major Japanese manufacturers, though both are made in the U.S. Both of these pickups come with rear-wheel drive and offer four-wheel drive as an option. Both offer a choice of cab and bed configurations. 

In the power department, the Nissan Titan offers one engine, a V8 with 390 horsepower, mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission. The standard Tundra engine is a V8 with 310 horsepower; a 381-horsepower V8 is available as an upgrade. Both versions come with a six-speed automatic. 

One major difference between these two half-ton pickups is how long each has been on the market. The current Tundra rides on a platform that dates back to 2007. That’s a long time to go between updates, even for a pickup. The Titan was all-new for 2016.

The choice between the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra comes down to age and value. The Titan rides and drives well, is well-equipped, and has a high-powered V8 as standard. The Tundra looks good and has a nice interior, but it’s definitely showing its age.
