2017 Nissan Titan vs. 2017 Toyota Tundra

The 2017 Nissan Titan is helping to usher in Nissan's "Year of the Truck," which highlights a spate of high-profile truck and SUV releases in the coming months. Leading off this charge into greatness is the 2017 Nissan Titan gas engine full-size truck, which we will compare to the 2017 Toyota Tundra gas engine full-size truck.

The Nissan Titan is coming off an exceptional 2016 model year which has seen praise from all corners, with awards from publications like Autobytel for Pickup Truck of the Year and 2016 Truck of the Year from AutoGuide.com. So it is with considerable excitement that truck-lovers are looking forward to 2017 Titan gas engine models, set for a release in late summer/early fall 2016, with a powertrain that comes loaded with a 5.6L engine and 390 HP.

There is no definite release date set for the 2017 Toyota Tundra, but the truck looks to hit the lots a little later than the 2017 Titan, sometime in the third quarter of 2016. With the 2017 Tundra you will have a choice of engines: Either a 4.6L V8 with 310 HP or a 5.7L V8 engine which puts out more power at 381 HP.

Not only does the 2017 Nissan Titan have an edge in power over the 2017 Tundra, the new Titan will also come with the best truck warranty on the market, with five years or 100,000 miles – whichever comes first – for powertrain warranty, which tops the 2017 Tundra's by 66 percent as far as mileage goes, as the Tundra is only covered for 60,000 miles or five years.

The 2017 Titan also comes with an innovation that is not too common in trucks – you have the ability to seat six people in trim options that come with a split bench front seat. This way you can dominate the road, tow nearly five tons (up to 9,360 pounds) and bring the whole family or a large group of friends along to witness your furious fun. The 2017 Tundra has not had towing figures released officially yet, but gas engine models in 2016 towed a maximum of around 10,000 pounds.

If you want a truck that is powerful, solidly constructed and backed by the strongest warranty on the market, then the 2017 Titan is the truck for you.
