2016 Nissan Titan vs. 2016 Toyota Tundra
The large truck class is titanic in and of itself, and when you pit two of the most reliable and popular models against each other, you don't just have a clash of Titans, you have the 2016 Nissan Titan vs. the 2016 Toyota Tundra. Both of these trucks have power to burn, and they know how to use it, but the 2016 Nissan Titan comes out on top in both raw engine power and towing capability.
The 2016 Nissan Titan can tow loads of up to 12,300 pounds, which comes in handy when you need to pull a friend's vehicle out of a tough spot in a storm or when you're going on a long cargo-heavy trip. That mark easily exceeds the 2016 Toyota Tundra's maximum tow capacity of 10,500 pounds. Underneath the hood, the 2016 Titan has a street-clearing 390 HP in 5.6-liter V8 gas engine models, but it also comes with a substantial power base in models with its 5.0-liter turbocharged diesel V8 engine. The latter models have 310 HP and an awe-inspiring 555 lb.-ft. of torque which will give you giddy up and go when you need it most, with those heavy loads. The 2016 Tundra checks in with 310 HP and 327 lb.-ft. of torque in 4.6-liter V8 engine models, with 381 HP in 5.7-liter V8 models, both substandard compared to the Titan's wealth of power and performance.

The reasons for these wins, and others, are due to the Titan's supreme towing power, features like LED lights on the cab/under the bed and a comfortable interior with available Zero Gravity seats.
