The full-size pickup category is notoriously competitive, and if you’ve been shopping for one, you’ve likely come across the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado and the 2017 Nissan Titan. Both come in many configurations and include a variety of high-tech, luxurious features. However, in the critical areas of performance and fuel economy, the winner is clear. Let’s take a look at how these two stack up.

Available Performance

Both the Titan and the Silverado offer high-performance V8 engines, but which one offers more power? Let’s take a look at how they stack up.

  • The highest performance engine in the 2017 Titan is a 5.6L Endurance V8. It puts out a respectable 390 hp and 394 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 9,730 lbs.
  • The 2017 Silverado can be equipped with a 6.2L EcoTec V8 engine which offers a huge 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The maximum towing offered is 17,700 lbs, considerably more than the Titan.

As you can see, if you need more power on the jobsite, the Silverado is a better bet.

Fuel Economy

While power is a big consideration, you also want to be mindful of fuel costs. An inefficient vehicle can quickly eat into your bottom line. The most efficient available Silverado configuration gives you 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway, while the most efficient Titan only provides 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway in EPA estimates. When you need a full-sized truck that won’t cost you more money at the pump, the Silverado is the clear winner.
