2022 Nissan Titan vs. 2022 Toyota Tundra

When it comes to full-size pickups and the state of Florida, you really can't have one without the other. And the 2022 Nissan Titan and 2022 Toyota Tundra are two of the most popular ones on the roads around the Crystal River area. Both of these pickups have awesome off-road trims and capabilities and are loaded with features as they attempt to establish themselves as king of the mountain. 

But which one of these beasts of the road will truly establish themselves as king? That's what we're going to find out today as we put them up against each other to see for ourselves which one comes out on top.

While both full-size trucks have their own strengths and weaknesses, which is better? Let's dive into our head-to-head battle and find out so that you can figure out which truck is best for your needs. And the Titan comes out on top of the mountain, be sure to visit our showroom at Maus Nissan of Crystal River to take one for a test drive!

Let the best beats of the road win!

 

Engine & Towing

Unlike the Toyota Tundra, the Titan comes with a powerful V8 engine. A 5.6-liter V8 that puts out a robust 400-horsepower, to be exact, comes standard in every single Titan model. The Titan comes standard with a four-wheel drive and comes with a standard towing capacity of 10,880 pounds without a gooseneck hitch. With a gooseneck hitch, you can get up to 11,040 pounds. There is no comparison if you're looking for straight power and four-wheel drive. 

But let's look at the Tundra quickly. Because it does have something on the Titan here, but not much. There are two engine options for the Tundra-a standard or hybrid V6 engine, but no V8. Whether you choose the hybrid option or not, you'll get up to 12,000 pounds of towing capacity but lack the power that comes from the Titan's scary V8 engine. 

 

Interior Design & Features

The 2022 Nissan Titan comes with incredible styling built for comfort and luxury. With an 8.0-inch touchscreen that comes standard, Apple CarPlay, Android Audio, and premium sound system, you'll be soaked in your favorite sound while enjoying your drive in style. The modern look and sleek materials add that little extra touch of luxury to the all-new Titan.

While the 2022 Toyota Tundra received some upgrades to the exterior, the interior hasn't changed much. It comes with soft-touch materials and a few new options like a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, digital instrumentation, and a rear sunshade. But, unfortunately, it's a bit boxy and uncomfortable in comparison.

 

Off-Road Capabilities & Features

When it comes to off-roading, the Titan sets itself clearly as the winner between these two full-size trucks. The Titan XD Pro-4X trim level adds off-roading features like Bilstein off-road performance shocks, fog lights, electronic locking rear differential, an upgraded 9.0-inch touchscreen, and more. And when you top it with the more powerful V8 engine, the Tundra just doesn't hold up. 

The off-road capable Tundra is its hybrid trim level that comes with an i-Force Max 3.5-liter twin-turbo hybrid engine. Toyota included things like TRD-tuned springs for extra ground clearance, a TRD front anti-roller, Multi-terrain select, crawl control, and an aluminum front skid plate. But every feature comes with a charge. Even a four-wheel-drive costs you extra on the Tundra, while on the Titan, it comes standard on every trim level. 

 

Bottom Line

In this head-to-head battle, the bottom line is that the newly crowned king of the mountain is the 2022 Nissan Titan. While they're both solid full-size truck options for your needs, the Titan is the clear winner. 

Here's a quick recap of the ways the Titan beats the Tundra:

        More powerful engine.

        More standard off-road features.

        Premium off-road technology and capability.

        Updated design and more interior features.
