How does the 2016 Toyota Tundra compare to the Nissan Titan?
The Toyota Tundra outperforms its rival from Nissan when it comes to powertrain options and fuel efficiency. The 2016 Tundra is available with two engine options; the 4.6-liter V8 produces 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque, while the larger 5.7-liter V8 churns out a whopping 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque. There’s only one engine available in Nissan’s Titan -- and that’s the 5.6-liter V8, which produces just 317 horses. Yes, you read those figures correctly; the Toyota Tundra’s smaller engine option, the 4.6-liter, nearly matches the power of the Titan’s much larger 5.6-liter engine. How’s that for power and efficiency?
Another area where the Toyota Tundra again eclipses the Nissan Titan is in fuel economy. All the power on tap in the 2016 Tundra doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fuel efficiency. A 4.6-liter V8-equipped Tundra with 2WD achieves an EPA-estimated 15 city/19 highway mpg, while the Nissan Titan 2WD can only manage a 13 city/18 highway mpg rating. Tundra models equipped with the much more powerful 5.7-liter V8 even match the Titan’s fuel economy figures. If you want gobs of power and respectable fuel economy in your new full-size truck, the 2016 Toyota Tundra is your best bet!
For far too long, full-size truck drivers have had to sacrifice comfort and refinement in order to find a capable truck at a reasonable price. That all changes with the 2016 Toyota Tundra. The 2016 Tundra is wider, longer, and offers more leg room, hip room, and shoulder room than the Nissan Titan. The Tundra’s wheelbase is also longer than the Titan’s by almost six inches (145.7 inches vs. 139.8 inches), which equates to a smoother and more comfortable ride for all passengers. If power, fuel efficiency and comfort matter to you when purchasing a new full-size truck, you’ve got to test drive the 2016 Toyota Tundra!View Inventory
