Never Get The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Instead Of The Nissan Titan Pro-4x

The Nissan Titan Pro-4X and The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro are two full-size trucks with Pro in their titles. However, one truck has to be better than the other. We will compare the specs of the Nissan Titan Pro 4X and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro to see which vehicle deserves to claim the word Pro in their name.

The Nissan Titan Pro-4X VS The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

To get started in the Nissan Titan Pro-4X, you will need to spend about $49k. That’s a hefty price, so it better be pretty solid for off-roading.

The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro starts around $48k, so there isn’t much wiggle room between prices. However, the Ford Raptor starts around $53k, so these trucks do provide some savings in comparison,

The Nissan Titan Pro-4X gets up to 15 mpg in the city and up to 21 mpg. This fuel economy is excellent compared to the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, which only gets up to 13 mpg in the city and 17 mpg on the highway.

Nissan Titan Pro-4X and Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Features

The Nissan Titan Pro-4X has an electronically locking rear differential to help crawl over rocks with both hill start and descent control to prevent slipping.

Also, the active limited brake automatically senses when extra power is needed to be sent to the wheels.

The intelligent surround-view camera allows you to see all around your truck, so you know exactly where your tires will land too.

Plus, the off-road gauge appears behind the steering wheel to keep you informed about the electronic differential, pitch, and roll.

The Toyota Tundra TRD-Pro is equipped with a brake controller for towing. That’s about it for off-roading to our surprise.

The Titan Pro-4X has the most safety features in its class with forward collision prevention, automatic rear braking, lane departure warning, and more.

So, we have a winner. You get so much more for off-roading with the Nissan Titan Pro-4X. It provides off-roading tech and safety features that the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro doesn’t even begin to compete with.

But many people will still opt out of the Titan’s tech just because the Tundra has Fox shocks.
