If you’re looking for a new full-size pickup truck, the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan represent two compelling options. What are the major differences between them? Well, that’s a question we receive regularly at Toyota of Gastonia. To help answer it, we thought a Toyota Tundra vs. Nissan Titan comparison would be helpful.

The following is a breakdown of some key features in each truck. So, before you begin taking test drives around Gastonia, Charlotte, or Lincolnton, NC, check out our comparison!

Toyota Tundra Interior Space

Tundra vs Titan: A Cabin You Can Enjoy

Moving from one worksite to another or merely sitting in rush hour traffic each day can grow tiresome if your cabin isn’t an enjoyable place to lounge about. Space is one way to ensure a cabin is accommodating, and in the Toyota Tundra there’s far more space to go around than in the competing Nissan Titan.

A good example would be the available legroom. If you’re seated behind the wheel or in the front passenger seat, the Tundra affords 42.5 inches of front legroom for you to utilize. In the Titan, the front row legroom is a tighter 41.8 inches.

The gap in interior space grows wider as you look at the second-row legroom of the Tundra vs. Titan. In the Toyota, your passengers can make use of a hearty 42.3 inches of second-row legroom, while Nissan offers a paltry 24.8 inches of legroom in its second row!

2020 Toyota Tundra Off Roading

Toyota Tundra vs Nissan Titan: Off-Roading Superiority

The Nissan Titan does what it can to deliver a reassuring and enjoyable experience when traveling off-road. Yet features like a skid plate and splash guards aren’t enough to surpass the TRD Pro, which is the specific off-road trim of the Toyota Tundra.

With the TRD Pro trim, your truck will be outfitted with 18-inch forged-aluminum BBS® wheels that are able to reduce unsprung mass by 3.35 pounds per wheel. Additionally, the TRD-tuned FOX® suspension is a must-get for hardcore adventurers, as it helps reduce cabin shock after impacts on rocky roads or steep inclines.

Toyota Tundra Driving

Safety Technologies

Toyota vehicles are always strong when it comes to safety technologies, and the Tundra is no exception. You get the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite of active safety features no matter which trim you choose. This system includes Automatic High Beams (AHB), Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD).

The Titan, meanwhile, doesn’t offer much to compete. Unlike the Tundra, some comparable features—like Intelligent Cruise Control—aren’t included with the base trim, but require you to move up to higher trim levels.
