Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Titan than in the GMC Canyon. The GMC Canyon will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Nissan Titan.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Canyon as you will with the Nissan Titan, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the GMC Canyon is a better financial choice over the Nissan Titan, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The GMC Canyon carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan Titan.

Dimensions
Since the GMC Canyon is much slimmer than the Nissan Titan, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the GMC Canyon, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Titan.

Drivetrain
The GMC Canyon offers much less torque than the Nissan Titan, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The GMC Canyon has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Nissan Titan, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Titan is clearly the choice over the GMC Canyon for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Canyon is clearly outclassed by the Nissan Titan.

Utility
The GMC Canyon has less seating than the Nissan Titan, making the Nissan Titan the better choice if you often have passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the GMC Canyon is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Nissan Titan.
