2016 Nissan Titan vs 2016 Ford F-150 near Sacramento, CA
See How the Titan Stacks Up to the Competition!
When you’re in the market for a truck that performs at its best whether you’re running errands or on the worksite, the 2016 Nissan Titan is a formidable option. It has top-of-the-line engine options, and plenty of features that you’ll appreciate both inside and out. To show off this impressive pickup, Nissan of Elk Grove has put together a comparison between the 2016 Nissan Titan vs 2016 Ford F-150 near Sacramento, CA.
Under the hood, the Nissan Titan is ahead of the competition by leaps and bounds with its two available engines. For those that prefer a gas-powered engine, the Titan comes standard with the 5.6L Endurance® V8 powertrain. Thanks to the Nissan Direct Injection System and Variable Valve Event and Lift, this is one of the most advanced engines on the market. It gets you moving when you’re riding along the Sacramento River with 390 horsepower and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. By comparison, the F-150 comes standard with a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 powerhouse that can’t possibly keep up with the Titan. You’re limited to just 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque. In fact, of the four available engines under the hood of the 2016 F-150, only one is a V8. Ford’s best isn’t able to match up with the Titan’s standard powertrain, as the F-150 is capable of just 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll also have options at your disposal in the Nissan Titan – while the Ford F-150 only offers gas-powered engines, the Titan has an available turbo diesel. The 5.0L Cummins® turbo diesel roars to life with 310 horsepower and 555 lb.-ft. of torque, so no job is too big to handle.
The next criteria when comparing the 2016 Nissan Titan vs 2016 Ford F-150 near Sacramento, CA, is your capability when you need to haul some serious cargo. Once again, Ford isn’t able to keep up. On the base model of the F-150, you’ll be limited to a 7,600-lb. maximum towing capacity1 that pales in comparison to the 12,300-lb. tow rating2 of the Nissan Titan when equipped with the Cummins® V8 engine.
To make your drive easier, the 2016 Nissan Titan is filled with little convenience features to make every drive less of a hassle. You won’t have to search for your keys when entering or exiting the vehicle because the Titan has a remote keyless entry – a feature not available on the base model of the F-150. The Titan also comes standard with power windows and locks, as well as cruise control for long trips down I-5. On the base model, the F-150 has manual windows and locks, and cruise control is not even an available feature.
