When you’re in need of a pickup and you’re considering going the new 2015 route, you’ve got quite a few options available to you on today’s market. So first you’ll need to ask yourself exactly what you’ll be needing it for and what sort of capacities are necessary to carry out the tasks at hand, day in and day out. It helps to have a truck you feel you can rely on, whether that’s from the peace of mind you get from great warranty coverage or from a trusted and reputable brand in the business. Either way, we think the 2015 GMC Sierra vs 2015 Nissan Titan is pretty much a clean sweep for our Sierra. Let’s take a look at some of the numbers.
Before we get into the specifics of the chart, a note about which models we’re comparing. Since the 2015 Nissan Titan is only available with a V8 engine (so if you’re leaning toward a V6, all the more reason to go for the Sierra), we’ve taken the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 and pitted it against the Titan’s V8.
You’ll see right away that in terms of horsepower, the Sierra’s V8 has a significant advantage over the Titan – to the tune of over 100 horsepower. That translates to a 2,500 towing capacity leg up as well, which is more than the average crossover SUV can tow altogether. You’d certainly think the Titan would manage to come in above the Sierra 1500 in terms of fuel economy, then, but you would be wrong: The Sierra leads there as well. Just to back the whole thing up, you’ll see that in the course of a five-year ownership, you’ve got 40,000 more miles of powertrain warranty coverage with the 2015 GMC Sierra 1500.
