Performance Specs, Fuel Economy and Technology Features 

Nissan and Toyota have both made the bold decision to streamline their truck’s powertrain options, by offering only V-8 engines. The 2020 Nissan Titan employs a 5.6-liter, V-8 engine that is attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will produce 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque, when the gas tank is filled with premium fuel. Nissan of Greenfield customers will be able to choose between rear- and part-time four-wheel-drive drivetrains for the 2020 Titan. A Nissan pickup truck with rear-wheel-drive can tow up to 9,350 pounds, with four-wheel-drive models offering a 9,210-pound towing capacity.  

The 2020 Toyota Tundra is also equipped with a standard V-8 engine, but it will produce less horsepower and torque than the 2020 Titan. Additionally, the Tundra can tow slightly more than the Titan, with a difference of just a few hundred pounds. 

Conventional wisdom would say that a truck with the kind of performance offered by the 2020 Nissan Titan would suffer in the fuel efficiency department. Conventional wisdom would be wrong in this case. Owners of the 2020 Titan can record up to 16 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway. For comparison, a similarly equipped 2020 Toyota Tundra can only record 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. 

In terms of technology, both the 2020 Titan and 2020 Tundra are pretty evenly matched. Each full-size pickup truck offers a smartphone-compatible infotainment system and both the current Titan and Tundra are equipped with their respective automaker’s suite of active safety systems.
