Getting a new truck is a huge occasion, and you want to be sure you’re getting the best vehicle for your driving habits and budget, but you also want a vehicle that offers plenty of comfort and tech features. In the battle of the 2019 Nissan Titan versus the 2019 Toyota Tundra, we’ve laid out the differences so that you can decide for yourself which model best fits what you’re searching for in a vehicle.
If you have any questions about the Nissan Titan, want to know more about trading in your current vehicle, or are interested in scheduling a test drive, you can contact our team below or call us at 910-459-2591. We’re currently accepting trades, and our team of Nissan experts is happy to walk you through the Titan lineup, showing you differences between trims and giving you an in-person look at the in-vehicle tech.
The 2019 Titan is offered in single, extended, and crew cab configurations, paired to a 5.5-, 6.5-, or 8-foot bed, respectively. The Tundra, on the other hand, is offered in extended and crew cab designs, with the extended models coming with a 6.5-foot or 8-foot bed and the crew cab with a 5.5-foot bed. The Titan also offers larger tires than the Tundra, along with active grille shutters which won’t be found on the Tundra.
A standard 5.6-liter V8 offers drivers 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque, which easily trumps the Tundra’s 4.6-liter V8. If you drive the Tundra, you’ll get 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. Payload numbers sit at 1,930 pounds when properly equipped in the Titan and just 1,600 in the Tundra, so if you’re going to be putting a lot of gear or supplies in the back, the Titan is the smarter choice here.
A 7-inch touchscreen, USB port, multiple 12-volt outlets, and Bluetooth come standard on both models, but the Titan adds in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration; the Tundra does not.
The Titan scores well on crash testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but the Tundra only performs marginally well. However, the Tundra does offer more available safety features, like forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. The Titan only provides drivers with Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Assist, and front and rear parking sensors.
Who’s the Winner?
When you stack these two models against each other, it’s clear to see that the 2019 Titan offers more in the way of performance, technology, and style. It’s well-equipped to keep you safe on the road, and it will serve you well when big jobs come your way.
