Fuel Economy – When comparing to gas engines, diesel engines tend to be a lot more powerful. While diesel fuel can often be more costly, many drivers, who often like to travel or out on the road, prefer diesel because while they are driving, it decreases the number of stops they may need to take to refill.

Torque and Towing – Diesel trucks further deliver substantially more torque than their gas-powered equivalents. As a result, much greater loads can be operated more conveniently, making them the perfect work truck as well as a great vehicle for transport.


Chevrolet Silverado HD 

The 2021 Silverado HD truck is the toughest, most capable Silverado HD yet! The Silverado HD offers its most powerful lineup ever, which is available with a 6.6L V8 gas engine or 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 paired with the Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission. 

There are a few significant differences between the V8 Gas Engine and Turbo-Diesel V8 Engine. The Gas Engine has a horsepower of 401, while the diesel engine is 445. The greater the horsepower provides your truck with remarkable acceleration and speed. Compared to the 464 lb-ft and 17,370 lb trailing weight on the gas engine the diesel offers 910 Ib-ft and 35,500 towing capacity. If you are looking for a vehicle that is convenient and easy enough to pull a lot more weight, the Silverado HD Turbo-Diesel engine is the best option for you.
