  • Engines

    Pickup trucks, especially full-sized pickups like the 2019 Chevy Silverado and the 2019 Nissan Titan, have always been valued for their engine and performance. Pickup trucks are uniquely designed for utility, more so than passenger number or comfort. They often have a big job to do, and they need a big engine (or three) to do the big job. If engine performance is what you are looking for in a full-sized pickup truck, you might want to see how these two stack up against each other.

    The 2019 Nissan Titan has one engine for all vehicles. It is a 5.6 liter V8 that gets 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. That is an impressive engine that gets up to 21 miles per gallon on the highway. But, how does it perform where it counts? The Titan can tow a maximum of 9,660 pounds, and has a payload capacity of 1,860 pounds. That is not terrible.

    The 2019 Chevy Silverado, on the other hand, offers four engine options. The first is an older Chevy engine available only on the bottom two trim levels. It is a 4.3 liter V6 that gets 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. It has a tow capacity of 7,900 pounds and can haul up to 2,250 pounds. This engine has been slowly phased out over the last few years by Chevy and GM and will soon be obsolete.

    The second is a brand new 2.7 liter Inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque, outstanding numbers for a four cylinder engine.  It also gets up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway.

    The other optional engine is the 5.3 liter V8 that gets 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. This engine may have slightly smaller horsepower and torque numbers, but it has higher numbers where it counts. It can tow up to 9,800 pounds and has a payload capacity of 2,076 pounds. This can even be taken one step further with the 6.2 liter V8 that will get 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque and increases the max trailering capacity to 12,200 lbs. Both numbers are significantly higher than those of the 2019 Nissan Titan.

    Pickup truck drivers naturally know what they need out of a truck. Some engines are too much, and some engines are not enough. Wouldn’t you want an option as to which engine your full-sized pickup truck gets? One engine might be too much, the other not enough. If you are looking for a truck that gives you an option, not to mention offers superb performance in the towing and hauling capabilities, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is the clear choice for you.

    Since you spend so much time in your work truck, you want to make it as much your own as you can. And if you use a 2019 Chevy Silverado or 2019 Nissan Titan as a passenger or family vehicle, you will want as many of the creature comforts and safety features as you can.

    The 2019 Chevy Silverado has a total of eight trim levels, and with cab and cargo box sizes added in, the total configurations reaches 42. The Silverado’s trim levels are the Work Truck, Custom, LT, RST, Trail Boss, LTZ, LT Trail Boss and High Country. Like the Titan, each trim level offers more and more features.

It, too, features additional available packages, such as the Z71 Off-Road Package and the Max Trailering Package, for those who want to get the very most of their 2019 Chevy Silverado.

    Escalating trim levels are not unique to these two models. Vehicles of all shapes and sizes around the world follow this procedure.

The 2019 Chevy Silverado is one of the most customizable vehicles on the planet, far more so than the 2019 Nissan Titan. So if you want a fully customizable pickup truck, with more options and trim levels to choose from, all at lower prices, the 2019 Chevy Silverado is the one for you.
