As the 2017 Truck Trend Magazine “Pickup Truck of the Year,” the all-new 2017 Nissan Titan SV for sale near Springfield, NJ at Nissan World of Springfield has proven that it can go head-to-head with some of the best pickups on the road. Today, we pit the 2017 Titan Crew Cab SV against the similarly equipped 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LS. Let’s find out just how the Titan puts in a winning performance against its GM rival.

Titan Makes Big, Bold Statement.
You’ll get no argument from us that the Silverado is a good-looking truck. But if you want to drive a truck that has a bold, muscular, and more aerodynamic appearance, then the smart money is on the newly redesigned Nissan Titan. Its massive honeycomb grille makes an aggressive statement, while the Silverado choose a more sedate approach. Overall, the Titan’s look is more rugged, dramatic, and imposing.
Innovative Features Put Titan Ahead.
The Titan also takes the prize when it comes to innovation. For example, exclusive in-bed storage boxes can be pulled out, filled with ice, and used as portable coolers. The Titan also features a unique dampened assist rear tailgate that smoothly lowers into place, an exclusive Utili-Track® Channel System with sliding tie downs, illuminated in-bed lighting, and a handy 12-volt in-bed outlet.

Not only is the Titan impressive on the outside, it carries over that “wow” factor in the inside. In fact, the Titan’s remarkably spacious, quiet, and luxurious interior is awash with premium materials. While its interior dimensions are nearly identical to the Titan’s, the materials used in the Silverado LS look a bit plasticky and sub-par by comparison.
You’ll find such convenient touches such as overhead console storage, standard Intelligent Key® with push-button ignition, an Illuminated driver vanity mirror, large locking storage area under the back seat, telescoping steering wheel, speed-sensitive volume control, and steering wheel audio controls on the Titan SV model, but not on the Silverado LS Crew Cab.
Titan Offers More Standard Horsepower.
The 2017 Titan Crew Cab SV also pulls ahead of the 2017 Silverado LS Crew Cab with a more powerful standard 390-hp, 5.6-liter V8 engine that puts out an impressive 390-hp and 394 lb.-ft. of torque. Compare this to the Silverado’s base 4.3-liter V6 that only gives you 285-hp and 305 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s quite a difference.
You’ll also find a more advanced 7-speed automatic transmission in the Titan, compared to the Chevy’s more commonplace 6-speed shifter. While the Silverado’s smaller engine gets slightly better fuel economy, it does so by sacrificing power and torque. And isn’t that what you buy a pickup for?
While both the Titan and the Silverado offer a similar complement of advanced technology and safety features, you can’t beat “America’s Best Truck Warranty, giving you 5 years/100,000 miles of bumper-to- bumper protection that Chevy or any other major truck manufacturer has yet to match.
Titan Comes Out Ahead.
In the final analysis, the brand-new 2017 Nissan Titan Crew Cab SV ½-ton pickup from your hometown Nissan used car dealer near Springfield, NJ, Nissan World of Red Bank, makes a strong case for sending the vaunted Chevy Silverado LS Crew Cab back to the drawing boards.
