2018 Nissan Titan vs. Chevrolet Silverado

Welcome to Sheridan Nissan, home of the best Nissan selection, customer service and offers in the New Castle area! We are committed to finding you the right car, or in this case, truck for you.

As you consider your full-sized truck options, compare the 2018 Nissan Titan with the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado. Both trucks start at a similar price, but you find the Titan offers many more features than the Silverado to ensure a better overall driving experience.


Although there is one engine option that comes standard on both the Titan and Titan XD (there is also a diesel option for the XD), it outperforms both options available in the Silverado. Paired with a 7-speed transmission, the 5.6L Endurance® V8 engine delivers 390 hp and 394 lbs.-ft. of torque. The Silverado features a 4.3L V6 engine that delivers 285 hp and 305 lbs.-ft. of torque or a 5.3L V8 engine that delivers 355 hp and 383 lbs.-ft. of torque. Since the Titan delivers power, it goes from 0-60 mph slightly faster (6.5 seconds compared to 7.1 seconds) according to Motor Trend.

The Titan is standard with a 200-amp alternator, which offers better ignition reliability and power to recharge the battery. The Silverado is standard with a 150-amp alternator and can go to a max of 170-amps. The difference is clear.
