Top Reasons to Buy a Diesel Truck

Diesel-powered trucks are becoming increasingly popular and for good reason. Though they tend to cost more upfront than gasoline-powered trucks, they make up for it with a number of nice benefits. These are the top reasons to buy a diesel truck.

Better fuel economy

Diesel engines have historically been more fuel-efficient than gasoline engines, and this remains true today. The 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 equipped with a Duramax® Turbo-Diesel engine, for example, gets an EPA-estimated 33 mpg on the highway.*

More torque

Another benefit of diesel engines is the high amount of torque they produce, leading to exceptional towing capacity. With its Duramax® V8 Turbo-Diesel engine, the 2021 GMC Sierra Heavy Duty produces 910 lb-ft of torque, delivering up to 36,000 pounds of max towing.

Longer-lasting durability

Diesel trucks are known to last for a very long time. This is typically because they are run at lower RPMs. They are built with stronger engine blocks to handle the higher compression ratios. If you plan to use your pickup for many years to come, a diesel truck is a great choice.
