2016 Toyota Tundra vs 2016 Nissan Titan

2016 Toyota Tundra 2016 Nissan Titan pickup truck power towing performance Mike Johnson's Hickory Toyota Hickory Gastonia NC

When you're shopping for a full-size truck, you want something that is as durable as its name implies. Something ferocious. Something that can tow a planet if you hitch it up properly. Which is why we're doing a 2016 Toyota Tundra vs. 2016 Nissan Titan comparison to see which of these trucks has the best combination of performance and features for you.

The 2016 Toyota Tundra is as sturdy as it sounds, with a V8 engine that goes "up to 11" with its 381 horsepower that gives it the fortitude to tow up to 10,500 pounds. And with six model trim options and up to 18 different model configurations in all once you factor in options like cab size, there's many great trucks to choose from. What all these versions of the Toyota Tundra share, besides premium performance and towing, is their great-looking exterior design, with an elegant hexagonal front grille design and broad wheelbase that will make you proud to haul cargo or take your friends on a road trip.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD checks in with an inferior 310 HP, though its high torque level gives it the power to tow over 12,000 pounds. You'll only have five model trim options to pick from with the 2016 Titan XD, however, giving you less choice. The 2016 Titan XD's design certainly shows the truck is powerful, but is too high in the front fascia and busier with the lights, making it look messy and chunky.

Perhaps the greatest compliment of all is the award the respected Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com gave to the 2016 Toyota Tundra, when the site gave the truck the 2016 Best Resale Value Award for full-size pickup trucks. The award was won because of the Tundra's many model options like the rugged SR for towing or the TRD Pro for off-road fun, its premium power, and an affordable starting price.

If you would like any further evidence of how versatile and tough the 2016 Toyota Tundra is, then check out the TV show "Highway Thru Hell" where towers like Jamie Davis use the Tundra to pull cars out of ditches, shield people from runaway vehicles and save snowplows stuck in the frigid and difficult conditions of Hope, in the British Columbia province of Canada. The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a solid truck with plenty of towing power, but doesn't have the resume, looks or raw HP that the 2016 Toyota Tundra has.
