The Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan pickup trucks are relative outliers among rivals from Ford, General Motors, and Ram, but far from also-rans. Combined, the two trucks outsold nearly every new sedan on sale last year, and the two pickups trade on perceived reliability and affordability, respectively, to woo buyers away from more popular truckmakers.
Our TCC Rating favors one, but it’s only a win on paper. The Titan’s 5.4 TCC Rating doesn’t include a safety score because official data isn’t yet available. The Tundra’s 4.8 TCC Rating does include safety data—and poor scores at that. We can’t say the Titan would fare much better once officials scores roll in, so we’ll have to wait and see.
