Even though diesel power has grown to have a foul reputation in the recent years, it’s still a fuel used in the US and with some new models being offered in the North American market, and it’s a fuel that continues to thrive.
There are still several vehicles you can choose when you want to make use of diesel and enjoy the increased low-end torque that’s offered and the fun of the drive that you can easily experience when you head out on the road. Here are some that you’ll want to choose from when you’re looking to make diesel the fuel for your drive.
Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon
If you want a midsize pickup truck that can do it all, these two make use of a 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine that shows up with the power you’re looking for. This engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and is set up in either RWD or 4WD to give you the drive you’re looking for. This is a great way to head out on the trails and have some fun in a truck that gets the job done.
Chevrolet is taking advantage of the fact that so many of the models that were offered in the past no longer can be had with a diesel engine. the 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine offered for the Cruze returns as much as 52 mpg of fuel mileage to make sure you can have a great drive and avoid the gas pump as often as you would like to when you drive.
Chevrolet Equinox/ GMC Terrain
These small and active SUV models are able to provide the drive and the power desired to make it possible for you to have the use of diesel that you want. The 1.6-liter engine used makes 137 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque in these SUV models and makes it easy for you to have up to 43 mpg of fuel mileage when you drive. Make the right choice with one of these SUV models and the diesel engine you’re sure to admire.
The newest addition to the F-150 is the 3.0-liter V6 that makes use of the diesel fuel for power. This engine is called the Power Stroke but it makes it easy to have excellent fuel mileage and plenty of power for the drive you’ll need to make when you head out for the day to get work done. This engine can be had in several of the higher trims to give you the power you desire.
Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel
The diesel engine has been offered in the Jeep Grand Cherokee for a few years and it seems to be one that’s often overlooked but full of the power and the fuel mileage desired. This version of the SUV uses a 3.0-liter V6 engine that can make it easy to pull a load or head out on the trails to have the experience you’re looking for when you’re ready to have some fun wherever you want to go for the drive.
Nissan Titan XD
As this truck is growing in its second generation the XD model is offered with an optional turbocharged diesel engine. This engine is a 5.0-liter V8 that brings in the towing and payload numbers that are higher than the half-ton trucks on the market. This truck bridges the gap between a half-ton and a three-quarter ton truck to be the one that will give you the performance you desire.
Ram 1500 EcoDiesel
This version of the Ram 1500 has been offered for a few years and it carries over into the 2019 model of the Ram 1500.
