NISSAN TITAN VS CHEVY SILVERADO: TOWING POWER
When it comes to your truck, you need a lot of power. The Nissan TITAN offers a standard Endurance® V8 Gas engine with 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, however, offers three different engine options. The most powerful of these engines is the advanced 6.2L V8 Dynamic Fuel Management engine with 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.
With an engine that produces so much power and torque comes an impressive towing capacity. The Silverado 1500 has a maximum towing capacity of 12,200 pounds. This towing capacity allows you to bring your family camping trailer or recreational boat along with you on your next adventure. The engine found in the TITAN, in comparison, only allows for a maximum towing capacity of 9,660 pounds, so you’ll have to leave your biggest toys behind.
• The 2019 Chevy Silverado offers three different engine options compared to the Nissan TITAN truck’s one engine.
• The Silverado towing capacity maxes out at 12,200 pounds, which is more than the TITAN truck’s 9,660 pounds of maximum towing capacity.
CHEVY SILVERADO VS NISSAN TITAN: PAYLOAD CAPACITY
In addition to a larger towing capacity, the engine found in 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 allows for a heavier payload, with a maximum of 2,180 pounds. The TITAN can only handle a payload of 1,930 pounds.
When you’re carrying a heavy payload, it’s nice to have features that can assist you. The Silverado 1500 offers an industry-first Power Up/Down Tailgate. This available feature combines with the Power Release Tailgate to allow you to lower and raise your tailgate with just the push of a button. The TITAN, unfortunately, only offers a manual tailgate, which may make storing items a little harder.

When taking long road trips in your truck, you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of room for both you and your passengers to comfortably stretch out. The Silverado 1500 gives drivers a comfortable cabin with 66.02 inches of shoulder space, 43.03 inches of headroom, and 44.5 inches to stretch out their legs. Rear passengers can also enjoy 43.4 inches of legroom.
The Nissan TITAN also offers rear passengers 43.4 inches of leg space, but it is not quite as roomy for the driver. You and your front passenger will only be privy to 63.3 inches of shoulder room, 41 inches of head space, and 41.8 inches of legroom.
The 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 also allows for a maximum 6-person capacity while the TITAN only seats five.

2019 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 VS NISSAN TITAN: SAFETY
Trucks rule the road, but that doesn’t mean they should compromise on safety. Both the Chevy Silverado 1500 and Nissan TITAN have available features that alert you to the road around you, helping you to stay safe. You don’t have to worry about cars creeping into your blind spot with available Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert that will direct you to a vehicle in or rapidly approaching your blind spot.
While the Silverado 1500 and TITAN both offer this feature, the Silverado 1500 has safety technology that the TITAN does not. For example, the TITAN doesn’t offer Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning to alert you when you’ve drifted from your lane without signaling. In the Silverado 1500, this feature can even provide gentle steering guidance to bring you back to your lane.
