2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 vs. 2017 Nissan Titan XD Gas
The competition between models in the full-size pickup segment is always going to be intense, largely because there’s so much at stake. Heavier loads are being pulled, safety and strength are less uncertain, and driver confidence is enormously important. Fortunately, drivers have the opportunity to choose from models such as the two shown here, the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2017 Nissan Titan XD Gas. But which of the two truly comes through in the clutch?
At their top-end gas-powered engines, both the Silverado 1500 and Titan XD Gas are powered by V8 platforms, with a 6.2L in the Chevy and a 5.6L in the Nissan. Yet, despite their similar configurations, considerably more power is produced by the Chevy model. When truck buyers opt for the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500, they are rewarded with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque, which produces a throaty 12,000-pound towing capacity. With each of these values eclipsing that of its Nissan rival, the choice in the full-size, light-duty segment is clear: the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500.
