2018 Nissan Titan vs. Toyota Tundra Comparison

The 2018 Nissan Titan vs. The Toyota Tundra

The Nissan Titan is one of the fastest growing truck brands in America as more people are realizing that it has more to offer than its competitors. It's affordable, but doesn't skimp on standard features. It's powerful, but efficient. It's sculpted, but spacious. We've compiled a few advantages it has over the competition so you can see why it is growing in popularity.

Why do more people enjoy the Nissan Titan than the Toyota Tundra?


You'll find that the Nissan Titan has a lower starting MSRP than the Toyota Tundra, and that it comes with more features than the Tundra. If you're looking for a new truck, it's hard to beat the 5 year/100,000 mile warranty of the Nissan Titan. The Toyota Tundra sure can't. It offers a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.

On top of this, the Nissan Titan is more efficient than the Toyota Tundra, so you can save on your fuel budget.

Power and Capability

Your truck should be ready to work no matter the trim level, which is why the Nissan Titan comes standard with power. The same capable engine comes in each one and it outperforms the Toyota Tundra in every spec. It has more horsepower, 390, than the Tundra's 310 horsepower, and more torque, 394 pound-feet compared to the Tundra's 327 pound-feet.

All of the standard power means that every trim level of the Nissan Titan is capable of towing over 9,000 pounds. The Toyota Tundra starts with a towing capacity of 6,400 pounds. Horse trailers, boats, and campers can all be towed behind the Nissan Titan, no matter how much you spend.

This is also true of how much you can carry in the bed. The base model Nissan Titan has a max payload capacity of 1,950 pounds, so you can carry heavy gear or materials. The Toyota Tundra has a max payload of 1,490 pounds in some configurations of its base model.


Both models can be configured in different ways depending on the cab size and bed length that you're looking for. For both trucks the bed length goes from 5.6-feet to 8-feet. The 8-foot bed of the Nissan Titan comes out to 97.7-inches, which is longer than the Toyota Tundra's 8-foot bed.

In terms of cab size, the Nissan Titan again comes out on top. It has more headroom than you'll find in the Toyota Tundra, which taller passengers are sure to appreciate.


In the Nissan Titan you'll find convenient features that'll help you to get your work done and relax in comfort on your ride home. The cabin doesn't allow for wasted space; making use of under seat areas for secure storage of a wide range of tools. The back row of seats can also fold down to give you a stable work area. In the bed you'll find a 120-volt power outlet for tools. The Toyota Tundra is not as versatile in terms of storage or outlet options.

The Nissan Titan is ready for any season. It has a remote start system with intelligent climate control that cools the cabin down on hot days, and starts defrosting the windshield and warming the truck up on cold mornings. It can be outfitted with heated and ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel for the New England winter. You can choose the Toyota Tundra if you enjoy waiting in the cold for your truck to warm up, as it doesn't offer any of these features.
