Review New and Used Diesel Prices and Values

Diesel engines present two main advantages over their gasoline powered counterparts, an increase in maximum and low-end torque for heavy duty vehicles and increased fuel efficiency. The benefits of increased torque typically applies to truck buyers seeking maximum towing and hauling capacity. For example, the 2016 Ram 3500 utilizes a diesel powered engine to achieve best-in-class for towing, payload and torque. Diesel power is also being integrated with mid-sized trucks as a means to improve fuel efficiency, some great examples of this configuration in action are the Ram 1500 pickup, GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado.


While diesel vehicles occupy roughly half the car market in parts of Europe, diesel powered vehicles are just beginning to gain traction with North American motorists. Companies such as Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen have begun offering diesel fueled engines in North America due to the popularity in their native territory. Volkswagen's TDI diesel engine is available in the Volkswagen Jetta and Golf, both of which have achieved fuel efficiency levels comparable to hybrids. A hindrance in the widespread adoption of diesel engines in passenger cars are the high emission levels. Two ways manufacturers are combating the high emissions of diesel engines is by equipping diesel particulate filters within a vehicles exhaust and incorporating exhaust treatment fluids which break down damaging particulates before they are released.
