2020 Nissan Titan vs. 2020 Toyota Tundra


  • Full-length box section frame rails — TITAN’s frame rails are box-sectioned (enclosed on all four sides) for their full length to provide added strength for heavy-duty use and to help reduce noise, vibration, and harshness. Tundra’s frame is boxed only in the front section of the vehicle.
  • Available Utili-track® bed system that includes floor channels — TITAN’s available innovative Utili-track channel system and reinforced cargo bed construction enhance the versatility of the cargo bed.

  • Available TITAN Box in-bed storage system — TITAN’s available TITAN Box offers lockable and removable storage compartments that can be placed along the side walls inside the cargo bed, where they are not visible from the outside. They are accessible without having to remove a camper top. Tundra does not offer a similar system.
  • Available trailer light check system — The available trailer light check system allows one person to check that all trailer lights are operational. The system can be activated inside the vehicle using the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display or from behind the trailer using the Nissan Intelligent Key® fob. Tundra does not offer this feature.
