2016 Nissan Titan XD vs 2016 Toyota Tundra

Weekend fun or a weekday grind, a pickup truck never rests. It doesn’t matter if your payload is maxed out and your truck is hauling with all of its might to help you make a paycheck or it’s towing along the family boat so that you can spend that hard-earned paycheck.

Sun up or down down, a pickup truck is built to be a work horse, but today’s trucks in 2016 are so much more.  Of course they can handle the grunt work, but they’ve become luxurious, with interiors that pamper their driver and technology that will impress any braniac.

Two trucks come to mind as fearsome competitors, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD vs 2016 Toyota Tundra; both have undergone significant changes, but it’s the Nissan Titan who we believe to be the prized choice and we’d like to tell you more about how we came to this decision.

The greatest and outright difference between the 2016 Nissan Titan XD and the 2016 Toyota Tundra is size. Traditionally, the Titan has always been a half ton truck, just like the Tundra, but this past year, Nissan created the XD. The Titan XD is a sort of stepping stone in between a half ton and heavy duty truck.

And while the Toyota Tundra is available with two V8 engines, either a 4.6L or a 5.7L, the Nissan Titan XD offers gas and diesel options. Diesel options aren’t as popular in the half ton segment as they are with heavy duty trucks, yet the Titan XD stands tall and proud with its brand-new Cummins 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel engine. It’s capable of 310 HP and an incredulous 555 lb-ft of torque. Either truck is available as a rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive truck, depending on your work needs and environment you primarily do your driving.

Depending on which trim level that you select, S, SV, PRo-4X, SL, or Platinum Reserve, the Titan XD is able to seat five to six passengers. Standard and advanced features only continue to improve and climb to a more luxurious level while there also different packages to better suit your needs and desires, like the Comfort and Convenience package as well as the Utility package which adds on a lockable storage box beneath the backseat, the Utili-Track bed rail system, LED cargo box illumination, spray-in bedliner, and a 120-volt in-bed power outlet.

Drivers interested in learning more about the the 2016 Nissan Titan XD’s work capabilities, like its ability to tow well over 12,000 lbs or all of the technology it has to offer are encouraged to give us a call or sign up for a test drive whenever it is most convenient.
