2016 Nissan Titan XD Diesel vs. 2016 Nissan Titan XD Gas Engine

The 2016 Nissan Titan is a beast, no matter how you look at it. Whether it’s the award-winning truck's raw power or its competition-stomping towing capabilities, it's head and shoulders better than the competition. Which is why instead of comparing the 2016 Titan with another company's full-size truck, we'll compare the 2016 Nissan Titan XD diesel models vs. 2016 Nissan Titan XD gas engine models. The diesel 2016 Titan XD has been on the lots for a while, and has scooped up awards like Best Pickup Truck of 2016 from Cars.com and 2016 Truck of the Year from Autoguide.com, while the gas engine 2016 Titan hits lots in the spring of 2016.

The 2016 Titan XD diesel is a rough and ready truck, with the ability to tow in excess of 12,300 pounds, which is a full ton more than some full-size trucks on the road, and which comes in handy when you need to either tow other vehicles or when you have heavy freight. This power to haul a small tank comes from its Cummins 5.0L V8 engine with an almost unheard-of 555 lb.-ft. of torque. And its interior is part of why it's won so many awards, with available comfy captain's chairs and heated seats, as well as cutting-edge tech like hands-free texting capabilities and available Siri Eyes Free and voice-command navigation.

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD diesel is an amazing machine, but the gas model promises to be just as stunning. Consider the gas model's superior horsepower, with 390 compared to the 310 for diesel trims. The gas model's power comes from a larger engine than diesel models, a 5.6L Endurance V8. While you will likely sacrifice some towing power with less torque in gas models, the fuel economy will be a little better, thanks to Direct Injection Gas (DIG) technology. And you will enjoy safety features like Trailer Sway Control (TSC), Trailer Light Check and Moving Object Detection (MOD), not to mention the same kinds of audio and navigation technology that diesel models feature.

If it's peerless towing and power you crave, a diesel model is your pick; if you want to sacrifice a little of the power but save some more at the fuel pump, then the gas model is more your style. But however you want to look at it, the 2016 Nissan Titan is an award-winning truck with power and features that puts the other manufacturers to shame, and we have the Titan on the lot at Nissan of Vacaville, located at 671 Orange Drive in Vacaville, CA.
