When it comes to diesel engines, there are a few major benefits to be aware of. While 8 cylinder trucks are often designated gas-guzzling machines, going diesel will save you trips to the gas station. Because diesel has a higher energy density, you'll get more mileage out of the fuel. It may be more expensive per gallon; however, you'll stop for gas less frequently. And if that's not enough to pique your interest, diesel engines don't require sparking as the fuel-auto ignites; this way, you'll see reduced maintenance costs that come with spark plug and wire replacements.
While avoiding spark plug replacements (and the gas station) sounds great, we have yet to mention the most pivotal advantage. Since diesel engines have higher compression ratios and cylinder pressures (compared to gasoline ones), you'll be guaranteed sturdier engine parts. If you're in the market for a rugged and reliable engine, diesel is the way to go. And if you're considering a diesel truck, the Silverado HD and Colorado are forces to be reckoned with in this realm. Just see for yourself:
Whether you're interested in the Chevy Colorado or the Silverado HD, both trucks offer incomparable power, impressive towing capacities, and reliable engines. Choosing a diesel engine is choosing to invest in the future; you are investing in a car with an engine that's built to last.
