Vehicle Comparisons:
2016 Nissan Titan XD vs. 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD combines the features of a light duty truck with a heavy duty truck’s capabilities. Its rugged design makes waves across the truck world, but can the Titan XD compete with the iconic 2016 Chevy Silverado?

That’s what we’ve decided to find out. Truck shoppers in Brockton, Stoughton and Randolph can read our side-by-side comparison between the 2016 Nissan Titan XD and Chevy Silverado to find out which one is the tougher truck.

Towing Capabilities and Power

First, let’s take a look at engine power. The 2016 Nissan Titan XD’s 310-horsepower Cummins® Turbo Diesel delivers up to 12,300 pounds of towing, providing the power, performance, and strength truck drivers need. An available Endurance® 5.6L V8 kicks performance up a notch to 390-horsepower and balances performance and efficiency like never before.

The 2016 Chevy Silverado puts forth a respectable performance, towing up to 12,000 pounds with its 6.2L EcoTec V8. Though it doesn’t quite stack up to the Titan’s hauling prowess, the Silverado delivers strength and dependability.

Unlike the Nissan Titan, the Chevy Silverado 1500 does not offer a diesel engine. This could be a major point of contention for truck drivers who prefer diesel to gas during their daily operations.


When it comes to payload, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD comes out on top. It can carry up to 2,589 pounds, while the Silverado only gets up to 1,990 pounds. When the Titan is loaded with passengers and cargo in its truck bed, it delivers strength and dependability you can rely on.

Technology Features

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD and Chevy Silverado make staying connected a priority. That’s why each truck offers infotainment systems with multicolor touchscreens, smartphone integration and more.

The Nissan Titan XD’s system, NissanConnectSM, includes app integration, SiriusXM®, Bluetooth and more. That way, you can easily stay in touch and entertained throughout your ride.

The Chevy Silverado offers a comparable system, Chevrolet MyLink, which includes hands-free calling and access to your favorite digital media. Intuitive and easy to use, MyLink’s controls makes it easy to connect to your favorite mobile capabilities without looking at your smartphone.
