The Tundra vs. the Titan

As you search for a pickup truck, you will find numerous offerings on the market in Boerne, giving you plenty of options. For those interested in a full-size pickup, both the 2018 Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Titan might seem appealing at first, but one of these two models comes out on top.

Engine Choices

Most 2018 Toyota Tundras use the 5.7-liter V8 powertrain with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque. However, some have a 4.6-liter V8 with 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet for Boerne drivers to take advantage of. By comparison, the Titan’s 5.6-liter V8 has 390 horsepower and 394 pound-feet of torque. This means that although the Titan has a bit more horsepower, the Tundra makes up for it with a bit more torque. Factoring in the Tundra’s smaller V8 for those who don’t need more power, the Toyota does a better job at offering a range of options, including one that is more fuel efficient for those drives to Cypress Grille.

Capabilities

When comparing trucks, capabilities play a key role, making the max trailering capacity an important point of comparison. When configured correctly, the 2018 Toyota Tundra can tow up to 10,100 pounds. Meanwhile, the Titan can only tow up to 9,740 pounds. While both are respectable numbers, the Tundra’s higher capacity makes it much more useful. It also means that the truck does not struggle as much if you regularly tow upward of 9,500 pounds, since that load is closer to the Titan’s limit than the Tundra’s. Keep this in mind if you frequently bring a boat along to Boerne City Park or another local area with a lake.

Advanced Safety Features

A huge advantage of the Toyota Tundra over most competitors is the inclusion of the Toyota Safety Sense P system as standard. In addition, many of the features it includes are not even available on the Titan or other competitors. It includes a Pre-Collision System that detects pedestrians and alerts for when you depart your lane or start to sway. It also includes Dynamic Radar Cruise Control and high beams that turn on automatically. Now you don’t have to worry about your family’s safety on your way to Cave Without a Name or the Cascade Caverns in Boerne.

This is why you see so many of these full-size pickups on Boerne’s roads.
