2017 Nissan Titan vs. 2016 Chevy Silverado; Which One Should You Buy?

Thinking of buying a new truck this year? Let’s take a look at two of the hottest trucks currently on the market: a 2017 Nissan Titan SL 4×4 Crew Cab with Chrome package, and a 2016 Chevy Silverado Z71 4×4 Crew Cab All-Star Edition.

Exterior Styling

Titan has a bigger modern muscular look and has a much more updated look compared to the outdated Silverado. Both trucks feature full-length running boards and power-sliding rear windows.


Titan’s V8 Endurance Engine has a more advanced dual-overhead design than the overhead valve design of the Silverado.

Front Seat

The Titan has a grip assist on the driver’s seat door, while the Silverado does not. The Silverado features a traditional steering column ignition requiring a key. Titan features a more convenient push button ignition so you can keep your keys in your pocket (or purse). Both cars feature the option between box and bucket seats, and have climate controlled front seats. The Titan and Silverado both have a rear-view camera, but only the Titan can offer a trailer guide. The Titan is also set on safety, as it’s the only truck in it’s class with individual tire pressure displays, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic alert.


Rear Seat

The Titan also offers a superior ride for those in the back seat. Only the Titan can give those passengers heated seats, their own cup holders, a full 120 volt power outlet, and dividable under-seat storage that’s lockable.


Cargo Bed

The Titan has a few advantages in terms of its cargo bed. Only the Titan can offer tailgate assist for lowering and raising the tailgate. The Titan’s cargo bed also has the distinct features of a 120 volt power outlet, movable floor channels, and waterproof in-bed storage system.
