2019 Nissan Titan vs Toyota Tundra
Which pickup truck should you choose when you want to work hard and play harder in Mobile, Prichard, and Saraland? At Nissan of Mobile, we know it’s a tough choice between the 2019 Nissan Titan and the Toyota Tundra. We’re sizing up the performance specs, framework, and comfort in these two rugged trucks to see which one comes out on top.
Nissan Titan vs Toyota Tundra: Powerful Performance
The 2019 Toyota Tundra comes with two powerful engine options. You can choose from a 4.6L i-FORCE V8 that provides 310 horsepower, or opt for the 5.7L i-FORCE V8 for 381 horsepower. Both engine options are powered by a 6-speed automatic transmission.
However, the powertrain in the Titan is even more powerful, with an impressive 5.6L Endurance® V8 engine that offers 390 horsepower via its 7-speed automatic transmission. This means that the Titan can handle a payload of up to 1,930 pounds1, compared to the maximum payload of 1,660 pounds in the Tundra.
That extra power doesn’t come at the cost of fuel efficiency. The Nissan Titan boasts an EPA-estimated 15 MPG city/21 MPG highway2, whereas the Tundra is rated at an EPA-estimated 15 MPG city/19 MPG highway.
Rugged Framework in the Titan and Tundra
When you’re hauling a mighty load, you need incredible stopping power and a suspension that will keep you in control. Both hardworking pickup trucks come equipped with ventilated front and rear disc brakes, an independent double-wishbone front suspension with stabilizer bar, and a multi-leaf rear suspension. The Titan also offers Bilstein® performance shocks on its 4×4 models; opt for these to get a smoother ride when off-roading.
We understand that driving to job sites often takes you over unpredictable terrain. Skid plates for your oil pan and fuel tank will protect your truck’s undercarriage, and they come standard on most trim levels in the Titan. While you can also get skid plates on the Tundra, they’re only available as an extra option package on certain trim levels.
Bed Size and Interior Comfort
The Nissan Titan has three bed lengths to choose from, depending on the cab configuration you choose:
- The Single Cab has an 8-foot bed
- The King Cab® has a 6.5-foot bed
- The Crew Cab has a 5.5-foot bed
What’s the back seat of the truck like? In the Titan Crew Cab, you can opt for Zero Gravity rear seats for a comfortable ride, as well as available heated outboard rear seats and rear 120-volt and USB ports to power up your devices. Plus, two additional cup holders mean everyone can stay hydrated when you’re working hard.
The Toyota Tundra only has two cab sizes to choose from, but similar options for bed length:
- The Double Cab comes with either a 6.5-foot bed or an 8.1-foot bed
- The Crewmax has a 5.5-foot bed
Additional features for rear-seat comfort in the Tundra Crewmax include dual zone automatic climate control, so everyone in the cab can stay comfortable. However, there’s no choice for heated or Zero Gravity rear seats in the Tundra.
