Titan Goes Head-to-Head with Tundra

Are you shopping for a new full-size pickup truck that can go to work on day one and look good doing it? Then there's a 2021 Nissan Titan waiting for you. Nissan's new 400-hp Titan truck boasts class-leading standard horsepower** and the capability you need to take on work and play with confidence.

You may be wondering how the 2021 Nissan Titan compares to other offerings in the full-size truck segment, though. In this review, we'll compare the new Titan to Toyota's 2021 Tundra to see which offers the right mix of power, capability, technology, safety, value and more.

We've already covered some of what makes the Nissan Titan a tough act to follow in the table above, but let's go deeper to help you determine which truck you'd rather drive. If you're like us, you'll come out of this comparison and any subsequent tour and test drive choosing Nissan and the new Titan over the Toyota Tundra!

If by the end of this comparison review you still have questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our team for answers. We're experts in all things Nissan, including the new lineup of Titan full-size pickups, and we'd love to go over what makes this truck stand out from Toyota's Tundra.

Differences Between the Nissan Titan & Toyota Tundra

Both the 2021 Nissan Titan and 2021 Toyota Tundra feature standard V8 engines, but that's about where the similarities end. Nissan's legendary Endurance V8 engine generates 400 hp in the new Titan, while the Toyota Tundra's V8 only manages to develop 381 hp. The story is the same with torque, where the Titan tops the Tundra by a similar margin.

Not only is the Titan's V8 more powerful, but it also returns significantly greater fuel economy figures than the Toyota Tundra. In standard 2WD trim, the Titan achieves an EPA-estimated 16 city and 21 highway mpg rating, while the Toyota Tundra manages just an EPA-estimated 13 city and 17 highway mpg rating. Who wouldn't want the power and efficiency that the Nissan Titan delivers?

From its 400-hp 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 engine V8 and slick 9-speed automatic transmission that help achieve a maximum towing capacity up to 11,040 pounds to its rugged shift-on-the-fly 4-Wheel Drive system, the Titan's powertrain is built for dependable performance. Other advanced features like Active Brake Limited Slip, hill start assist and hill descent control help the Titan maintain composure in any driving situation and over any terrain.

Safety and control matter when you're driving a large and powerful pickup like the Nissan Titan. Every 2021 Titan truck comes loaded with six advanced driver-assist technologies as part of Nissan's Safety Shield® 360 suite.

Nissan Safety Shield® 360 consists of the following features:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist

You won't find that number of standard driver-assist systems as part of the Tundra's Toyota Safety Sense package. Plus, only the Titan offers an advanced 360-degree or bird's-eye view camera, which Nissan calls an Intelligent Around View Monitor.

When you're seeking a plush and premium interior in a powerful new pickup, the 2021 Nissan Titan is here for you with available trims like the Crew Cab SL and Crew Cab Platinum Reserve. Both of these editions include leather seating surfaces, with the Platinum Reserve adding premium leather.

We can't discuss the Nissan Titan's advantages over the Toyota Tundra without mentioning its superb warranty package. Nissan tops the truck industry with its factory bumper-to-bumper limited warranty that covers the 2021 Titan for five years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Compare that to the Toyota Tundra's bumper-to-bumper warranty that's good for only three years or 36,000 miles and you can see why motorists are choosing Nissan and the new Titan!
