Lloydminster drivers in the market for a light-duty pickup truck have several options to choose from. If both the 2017 GMC Sierra and the 2017 Nissan Titan have made your list, our team has done the homework for you. We’ve compiled their stats and compared them side-by-side below to help you choose the truck that’s the right fit for you. Read on to see where these popular pickups stand!

Engine and Transmission

Your life and business is unique, so you deserve a vehicle that can be customised to fit your exacting needs. While the 2017 Nissan Titan has five trim levels to choose from, you’ll find the exact same 5.6L DOHC 32-valve V8 engine and 7-speed transmission duo in every one of them. If you’re content with 390 hp, regardless of the trim or packages you select, then the Nissan Titan might work for you.

On the other hand, the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 is incredibly customisable, offering three robust EcoTec3 engines and two transmissions to choose from. If you go with the 2017 Sierra 1500 you’re free to choose the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 if you want the best fuel economy of any large GM pickup. If max power is your preference, the 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 is the most powerful available gas engine in-segment, giving you a whopping 420 hp. To further fine-tune the performance of your 2017 Sierra 1500, there are two automatic transmissions to choose from: a standard 6-speed or an available 8-speed.

Towing Capability

The 2017 Nissan Titan’s max towing capacity tops out at 5,107 kilograms. That’s enough to bring your boat to the lake or take a trailer camping, but if you’re hauling something a little beefier, you might want to check out the 2017 GMC Sierra 1500. It offers an available segment-leading 5,443 kilograms max towing capacity, capable of hauling whatever you can hook to the hitch. An array of innovative trailering technologies enhances the Sierra 1500’s towing experience, such as Powertrain Grade Braking that’s part of the Tow/Haul mode.

Infotainment Systems

At first glance, the infotainment systems found in the GMC Sierra 1500 and the Nissan Titan seem very similar, but a few key features set them apart. The Titan offers drivers the choice between a 127- or 178-millimetre colour display, available navigation, and the NissanConnect Mobile Apps Companion, which lets you pair your device for music, social media, and more. The GMC Sierra 1500 has a standard 178 mm display, with the option to upgrade to a larger 203-millimetre display. GMC’s IntelliLink system offers both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability for nearly seamless smartphone integration and access to music, media, contacts, and more, via a familiar interface.
