Nissan Frontier vs. Titan: Engines and Drivetrain

Nissan has made a major shift into high gear for both the new Nissan Frontier and Titan in recent years, thanks to upgraded powertrains and engine blocks. With both 2020 Nissan Frontier and 2020 Nissan Titan, RWD is standard, but both can be upgraded to rugged and ready 4×4 options. Compare the Nissan trucks’ engines below:

2020 Nissan Frontier

  • Standard Engine: 3.8L V6 capable of a best-in-class 310 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque
  • Horsepower: 310 hp
  • Torque: 281 lb-ft

2020 Nissan Titan

  • Standard Engine: The Endurance® 5.6L V8 and 413 lb-ft of torque

Part of what makes the 2020 Nissan Titan starting MSRP significantly higher than the 2020 Frontier is this difference in the power of the engines. We’ll take a look at the other divides below.

Nissan Frontier vs. Titan: Capacity and Towing

With features like Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, electronic locking rear differential, and selectable drive modes, both the 2020 Nissan Titan and Nissan Frontier make exceptional towing rigs. With that said, the 6,720-pound towing capacity in the Nissan Frontier is significantly less than the impressive 2020 Nissan Titan towing capacity of 9,370 pounds.
