Compared To Toyota Tundra 2016

The Titan XD (except S/SV)’s optional easy entry system glides the driver’s seat back when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Tundra doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The Titan XD’s standard power windows allow the driver or passenger to lower and raise the windows without leaning over or being distracted. The Tundra Work Truck doesn’t offer power windows.

The Titan XD’s front power windows open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Tundra’s standard power window switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully. Only its driver’s window opens automatically. The Tundra’s optional windows’ rear windows don’t close automatically.

If the front windows are left down on the Titan XD the driver can raise them using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Tundra can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Titan XD’s standard power locks allow the driver or passenger to lock or unlock all the doors at a touch without leaning over, or reaching to the back seat. The Tundra Work Truck doesn’t offer power locks.

The Intelligent Key optional on the Titan XD allows you to unlock the driver’s door and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Toyota Tundra doesn’t offer an advanced key system.

The Titan XD S/SV’s standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Tundra SR’s standard wipers have no intermittent settings at all, so the driver will have to constantly turn them on and off. The Titan XD PRO-4X/SL/Platinum Reserve’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Tundra SR5/Limited/Platinum/1794/TRD’s manually variable intermittent wipers don’t change delay with speed.

The Titan XD’s power mirror controls are mounted on the armrest for easy access. The Tundra’s power mirror controls are on the dash, hidden behind the steering wheel, where they are awkward to manipulate.

When the Titan XD with available tilt-down mirrors is put in reverse, the rearview mirror tilts from its original position. This gives the driver a better view of the curb during parallel parking maneuvers. Shifting out of reverse puts the mirror into its original position. The Tundra’s mirror doesn’t automatically adjust for backing.

Both the Titan XD and the Tundra offer available heated front seats. The Titan XD also offers optional heated rear seats to keep those passengers extremely comfortable in the winter. Heated rear seats aren’t available in the Tundra.

A built-in pollen filter removes pollen, exhaust fumes and other pollutants from the Titan XD’s passenger compartment. This helps prevent lung and/or sinus irritation, which can trigger allergies or asthma. The Tundra doesn’t offer a filtration system.
