2021 Nissan Titan vs. 2021 Toyota Tundra

The Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra are capable, dependable trucks that offer a safe, comfortable ride while you're driving through Tampa, the team at Maus Nissan of North Tampa did an in-depth comparison of the 2021 Nissan Titan vs. the 2021 Toyota Tundra.



For starters, every 2021 Titan comes equipped with the capability you need for the toughest job and biggest adventures offering a legendary, standard best-in-class 400-hp Endurance® V8 engine and 413 lb.-ft of torque - all tamed with an impressive 9-speed automatic transmission. Built for dependable performance, the Titan maintains composure in any driving situation and over any terrain.


The Toyota Tundra also features a standard V8 engine, however, that's where the similarities end. In terms of performance, the Tundra's engine falls short and only manages to eke out a standard 381-hp and 401 lb.-ft torque handled by a 6-speed automatic transmission.


Even though the Titan's V8 engine is more powerful, it still manages to return significantly greater fuel economy figures than the Tundra. With the standard 2WD trim, the Titan generates an EPA-estimated 16 city and 21 highway mpg rating, while the Tundra has an EPA-estimated 13 city and 17 highway mpg rating. Power plus efficiency?! Yes, please!


Safety Features

When you're behind the wheel of the large and powerful Nissan Titan, safety and control matter. Every 2021 Titan comes standard with six advanced driver-assist technologies as part of Nissan's Safety Shield® 360, consisting of the following features:

·       Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection

·       Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

·       Blind Spot Warning

·       Rear Automatic Braking

·       Lane Departure Warning

·       High Beam Assist

Forget about finding that number of standard driver-assist systems in Tundra's Toyota Safety Sense package. While Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Warning are available options, the Tundra doesn't even offer Standard Rear Automatic Braking or Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. Better luck next time, Tundra!



Hands down, Titan leads the charge with its impressive interior design and standard best-in-class features. Offering a standard 8-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dashboard, you can easily line up with your trailer, stay connected while you drive, and find your favorite music without ever having to take your eyes off the road. Standard infotainment features offered in Nissan Connect® include:

·       Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant

·       Apple CarPlay®

·       Android Auto™

·       Voice Recognition

·       Utili-Track® System

Infotainment features of the Toyota Tundra pale in comparison to the Titan. Not only is the standard audio system nothing short of basic, Tundra offers just three rails in its Utili-Track system compared to the Titan's five rails. Simply put, if you want your Tundra to offer the same infotainment features as the Titan, it'll cost you.



When it comes to comparing the warranty between the Titan and Tundra, it's no contest. Nissan offers an incredible five-year or 100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty coverage, a five-year/unlimited mileage corrosion perforation warranty, and roadside assistance.  


Compare that to the Tundra's three-year or $36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, and it's no wonder why people are choosing the Nissan Titan over the Tundra!
