When you need to haul or tow a heavy payload, it takes a tough truck to get the job done. The Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan are both made for hard work, but which one offers the capability you need for your most demanding jobs? Let’s take a closer look to find out.
The full-size truck class is defined by power, and the Toyota Tundra pulls ahead of its rival with greater work-ready muscle. When fully equipped for the tasks, the 2021 Tundra can tow as much as 10,200 pounds, and it can also haul up to 1,730 pounds. The Titan can only 9,310 pounds, and its hauling capacity maxes out at 1,680 pounds.
In addition to their work-focused capabilities, trucks are also expected to leave the pavement behind when duty calls them into the wild. The Tundra can handle rough trails with confidence, especially if you opt for the Tundra TRD Pro trim, which is optimized for off-roading with FOX rear shocks, a front skid plate, tow hooks, four-wheel drive, and more. The Titan is available in the Pro-4X model which also features some trail-riding gear, but critics have noted that it doesn’t match up to the rugged standards of the class.
A durable truck shouldn’t demand an excessive price, and Toyota keeps their pricing low throughout the Tundra’s trim range. The Tundra comes with a lower starting price than the Titan, and the difference continues even if you consider their upper trim levels. Even the high-quality Tundra Platinum is refreshingly affordable, while the Titan Pro-4X demands a hefty sum at the top of its lineup.
