  • Safety

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    As a company, Chevrolet has a threefold approach to addressing safety needs: prevent, protect, and respond. With these three goals in mind, the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado has been designed with numerous safety features that work together to prevent accidents from occurring, protect the driver and the passengers in the event accidents do happen, and respond swiftly and safely to the accident should one occur. To prevent accidents, the Silverado includes low-speed forward automatic braking; lane keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, safety alert driver’s seat, front and rear park assist, and a rear vision camera. These technologies all work together to ensure that the Silverado’s driver and passengers are always safe, no matter what might happen on the road. In addition to all of the safety features available on the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet’s team of engineers created the truck with passenger safety in mind. The cab is designed to protect the occupants of the vehicle in the event of an accident, keeping them safe with six standard airbags and a high-strength steel safety cage that prevents the cab from crushing in a collision. As another measure to protect the vehicle’s occupants after an accident, many Chevrolet models are equipped with a free trial of OnStar. In the event of a crash, an OnStar representative will contact you immediately and dispatch emergency assistance right to your location, even if you are unable to respond to their voice. The Silverado also offers Teen Driver, a system available to help parents protect their teens when they’re not in the car to supervise these new drivers. This technology promotes safe driving habits by alerting passengers with audiovisual warnings when a teen driver exceeds a certain speed, muting the radio if any occupant isn’t wearing their seatbelt, and providing the industry’s first in-car report card to show parents how their teen is handling their new responsibilities behind the wheel. This technology will help you teach your teenagers safe driving habits — no matter where you are.

    2018 Nissan Titan

    With Nissan’s new Intelligent Mobility initiative, which has the ultimate vision of cars that communicate with and learn from each other on the road, thus working together toward a safer driving environment, there are many features available to keep you safe in your Nissan Titan.

    Some of the available safety features include forward collision warning, blind spot warning, lane intervention, backup intervention, around view monitor, and distance control. These features are all comparable to the safety features available on the Chevrolet Silverado; however, if you have children that have reached driving age or will be of driving age soon, the Silverado’s Teen Driver technologies will make it the top choice for your family in terms of safety features.

  • Efficiency

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The Silverado gets an EPA-estimated 15/21 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway with the 6.2-liter V8, and fuel economy comes in at 18/24 miles per gallon with the other two engines. The three-block engines each contain various fuel-saving technologies like Active Fuel Management™, Direct Injection, and Continuously Variable Valve Timing to save you money. To get even more fuel efficiency, some models are equipped with eAssist Powertrain, a hybrid technology that pairs with the 5.3-liter V8 engine. Springing for this technology means drivers will see up to a 12 percent improvement in fuel economy.

    2018 Nissan Titan

    The 2018 Nissan Titan gets a pretty similar fuel economy to the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. The 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine gets an EPA-estimated 15/21 miles per gallon in the city and on the highway. This is the same fuel efficiency rating that the Chevrolet Silverado scores. Even though the Nissan Titan has less impressive performance capabilities than the Chevrolet Silverado, the fuel economy will be about the same for drivers of both trucks.

  • Performance

    2018 Chevrolet Silverado

    The 2018 Chevrolet Silverado has a lineup of powerful, fuel-efficient engines to choose from so drivers can ensure that they save fuel without sacrificing power. The available engines include a 4.3-liter V6, a 5.3-liter V8, and a 6.2-liter V8. Regardless of your needs or lifestyle, there is an engine that will work for you.

    With the 6.2-liter V8 engine, the Silverado has a maximum power capability of 420 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 460 lb.-ft. Of torque at 4,100 rpm. The 6.2-liter V8 engine also gives the truck a maximum towing capacity of 12,500 pounds and a maximum payload of 2,250 pounds. You can haul pretty much anything with that kind of power. Other available features that make the Silverado a powerhouse of performance include a tow/haul mode that reduces shift cycling, StabiliTrak™ with trailer sway control to prevent and manage swaying trailers and hill start assist to help prevent rollback. These features make sure that you can get the job done quickly, easily, and safely.

    2018 Nissan Titan

    The 2018 Nissan Titan is advertised as an “every-duty” truck when it comes to what it can do. Keeping in line with this performance promise, the Titan offers three different engine configurations, two gas, and one diesel. These engines include the Endurance® 5.6-liter 32-valve V8, the Endurance® 5.6-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 engine, and the Cummins® 5.0-liter DOHC 32-valve V8 turbo diesel engine.

    Even with one of the most heavy-duty trims, a crew cab with the 5.6-liter Endurance V8 engine, the Nissan Titan can only tow a maximum of 9,400 pounds. This towing capacity is significantly less than the Chevrolet Silverado — over 3,000 pounds different. Likewise, the maximum payload with this configuration is only 1,610 pounds, which comes in at over 600 pounds fewer than the Chevrolet Silverado’s maximum payload. This engine also tops out at 390 horsepower and 394 lb.-ft. Of torque, which is also less than what the Silverado gets. So, when it comes to sheer capability, the 2018 Silverado is the clear winner.

    However, the Titan does come with built-in and available features that contribute to its power and capability. For example, it is built on a reinforced, fully boxed, full-length ladder frame. Plus, with tow/haul mode, a rearview monitor, an Intelligent Around View Monitor, brake controller, hitch mount, remote trailer light check, and trailer sway control, drivers of the Titan are armed with plenty of features to make towing easier.
