2020 NISSAN TITAN VS. 2020 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500

KEY TITAN ADVANTAGES

  • Wide Open rear doors (vs. front-hinged) (King Cab) — TITAN’s rear-hinged doors enhance access to the rear seats. The doors open first to a conventional 85°. Then they can open even wider (170°) to fold nearly flat against the body. Silverado has conventional front-hinged rear doors.
  • Zero Gravity front seats (front and rear on Crew Cab)  The design of TITAN’s standard Zero Gravity seats can help reduce fatigue when driving long distances. Every TITAN has Zero Gravity front seats, and Crew Cab models include Zero Gravity rear seats. Silverado does not offer any Zero Gravity seats.
  • Available Remote Engine Start2 with Intelligent Climate Control (vs. remote start only) — TITAN’s available Remote Engine Start allows the vehicle to be started remotely to warm or cool the interior prior to driving. Intelligent Climate Control works with Remote Engine Start to initiate the climate control temperature, fan speed, and air circulation mode based on factory programming and ambient temperature. Silverado offers Remote Engine Start but no Intelligent Climate Control.
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness3 (I-DA) — TITAN’s standard Intelligent Driver Alertness helps alert the driver if the system detects inattentive driving caused by driver fatigue, using an audible and visual warning to suggest the driver take a break. Silverado does not offer such a feature.
  • Advanced safety features — TITAN offers a long list of standard and available advanced safety technologies. Silverado either does not offer or has less availability for some of these technologies. TITAN offers:
