Posted Sunday, Feb 07, 2016 by nhtwpprod

Choosing a new pickup truck can be a bit overwhelming. Truck makers are changing and adding to the traditional pickup each year, making them better and more powerful. For 2016, two top trucks, the Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan, are going to be the trucks to beat. Just the names of these two workhorse trucks give the impression that they will take the automotive world by storm in 2016. Car dealerships in Los Angeles have the newest models on their lots for consumers to check out, but how do you decide whether to visit a Toyota or a Nissan dealer?

Let’s compare these two 2016 models and see which one fits your driving needs best.


Of course, the main thing for many car buyers to consider is the price. There is a starting price, and then there is a comfortably equipped price. The vehicle that contains the most standard features at the starting price is going to be the best value. However, if there are some features that you just can’t live without, you will have to add a bit to the price to get the vehicle you want. It’s a matter of comparing what is included with each vehicle, not just which one has the lowest price. The base price of the Toyota Tundra is just around $28k, while the 2016 Nissan Titan starts at $40k. If you were looking at price alone, then the Tundra is definitely the most budget-friendly choice.


The 2016 Toyota Tundra tagline is “Tundra TRD Pro, an off-roader that goes as well as it tows.” The Tundra TRD tuned suspension, 5.7 liter V8 with dual exhaust, as well as Bilstein front and rear shocks is bursting with power and handling that will make even the toughest off road trails a breeze. The Nissan Titan offers a Cummins Turbo Diesel that is ideal for hauling. The choice is clearly the Tundra if you’re looking for a truck that is great off and on the road. The Titan may be a good choice for a work truck, but not so much for fun.

Safety and Technology

Toyota has become a leader in the safety and technology categories. With Entune, backup camera and displays, integrated navigation as well as airbags, blind spot monitor, LATCH and Star Safety System, the 2016 Toyota Tundra is a top contender in safety and tech features. The Titan contains airbags, ABS, and traction control. While both vehicles offer safety and technology features, the Toyota Tundra gives more for the price.

Choosing a new truck can be a challenge, as there are many options out there, but, if you’re looking at the 2016 Titan or 2016 Tundra, this comparison should help you decide which one best meets your needs. Do you plan on using your truck strictly for work, or do you want to be able to work and play in the same vehicle? For versatility the Tundra is the easy choice.
