If you are looking for a truck that is capable of doing some heavy lifting, consider the 2018 Nissan Titan XD. Compared to the 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, the Titan XD comes with the best-in-class truck warranty (5 years/100,000 miles vs. 3 years/36,000 miles). The Titan XD also has an available Midnight Edition, which you won’t find available with the Silverado 2500.

Technology

Before we discuss the type of power the Titan XD delivers, let’s talk about the technology within the cabin, and around the truck. This Nissan truck is larger than most, so having the Intelligent Around View® Monitor, which gives you a 360-degree view, allows you to see every angle around the truck. Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ (not available in the Chevrolet truck) further helps you drive with more confidence. This includes a Blind Spot Warning, a Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and front and rear sonar sensors.

NissanConnect® (also not available in the Silverado 2500), which is powered by SiriusXM® and compatible with your smart phone1, allows you to stay connected with friends and family on the go. Make phone calls, send and receive text messages and set up various alerts, such as emergency preparedness alerts. You also will have remote access to lock/unlock the car and remotely start your car. If you have the Nissan Intelligent Key®, you can do the same thing without using your key, just have it on you!

Performance

If you decide you like the 2018 Titan XD, you get to choose whether you’d prefer a gas engine or a diesel engine. The 5.6-L Endurance® (not available in the Silverado) V8 gas engine delivers 390 HP and 394 lb.-ft. of torque. The available 5.0-L Cummins® turbodiesel engine delivers 310 HP and 555 lb.-ft. of torque.
