Whether you’re driving through Richardson, Garland, Addison, or Plano, you’re going to want to learn more about these powerful vehicles.

Nissan Titan vs Toyota Tundra: Power & Performance

Nissan Titan Gray

The Nissan Titan comes packed with power you can feel in every turn. It has a 5.6L V8 engine that delivers 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. The standard 7-speed automatic transmission allows you to smoothly control your vehicle no matter the terrain, making for a driving experience that combines comfort with pure power.

On the other hand, the Toyota Tundra has a standard 4.6L V8 engine, which provides drivers with 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque.

The 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission offers you slightly less versatility than the 7-speed transmission offered by the Nissan Titan. The more gears you have, the shorter they are. This setup allows for better acceleration the minute you step on the gas, meaning the 7-speed automatic transmission in the Titan takes full advantage of its higher horsepower and torque-and that spells out a faster, more powerful ride that drivers will love.

Towing Capacity

You’ll be blown away by the towing power offered by the Nissan Titan. It has a maximum towing capacity of 9,740 pounds when properly equipped.1 The truck also offers Tow-Haul Mode to make pulling the heaviest loads even easier!

By contrast, the base model of the Toyota Tundra has a towing capacity of 6,500 pounds when properly equipped. Due to its lower towing capacity, you’ll have less power at your disposal, and it could prove challenging to tow heavier objects on less-than-ideal terrain.
