2019 TITAN vs Tundra: Performance Specs
The 2019 Tundra is powered by a peppy 4.6L V8 engine in the base trim. It has 310 horsepower on tap, which is enough to move with authority. For some added acceleration and increased towing, you can choose the available 5.7L V8 engine that produces 381 horsepower.
As good as those numbers are, they don't quite match the powertrain in the 2019 TITAN. Its 5.6L Endurance® V8 engine will generate 390 horsepower—best of all, that power comes standard. Paired with a 7-speed automatic transmission enables the TITAN to maximize both performance and efficiency.
In a pickup truck, every bit of efficiency helps. While the Tundra's available 5.7L engine gets an EPA-estimated 13 city/18 highway MPG, the TITAN fares better. It achieves an EPA-estimated 15 city/21 highway MPG, helping you go farther on less fuel.1
More Truck Capabilities
Want to tow your boat out to the Gulf Coast for some fun on the open water? Need to transport that RV out to the campsite for a little weekend getaway? The 2019 TITAN can make that happen with an impressive base towing capacity of 9,240 pounds.2
The Tundra, on the other hand, falls a bit short in this respect. Its base towing capacity is just 6,800 pounds. While adequate, that number doesn't live up to the TITAN’s figures. In fact, the TITAN's standard trailering capability can handle nearly everything the average driver tows, whether a large boat or 25-plus-foot-long camping trailer.
The two trucks both hold plenty of cargo. Whether you're moving work materials between job sites or loading up the truck with personal items, you'll have three beds from which to choose. Both trucks offer 5.5-foot and 6.5-foot versions. The final option in the TITAN is an 8-foot box, while the Tundra has an 8.1-foot bed. With so many options, you're sure to find one that suits your specific needs.
The Nissan TITAN and Toyota Tundra offer lots of space to bring the crew along for the ride. Both have room for up to six people. The Tundra offers a standard Double Cab and an available CrewMax cab. Both of these trucks fit five to six people, depending whether you choose the standard front bench seat or available captain's chairs.
However, the TITAN has a wider range of passenger capacities. You can seat up to five or six in its Crew Cab and King Cab configurations, but the TITAN offers a third option: the Single Cab. It nixes the rear seats entirely, instead accommodating three people across a single-row bench seat. If you only need one row, it's a great choice.
