Diesel pickup trucks have become an extremely popular choice and for all the right reasons. Diesel engines, after all, offer more fuel-efficiency and better torque compared to gasoline engines. Here’s our list of the most powerful diesel trucks.
2020 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
This is one seriously cool model. It is a mid-size pickup that handles great when off-roading, has a lot of torque, and looks great. The Colorado ZR2 produces 369 pounds of torque and 181 horsepower and is capable of towing a total of 7,700 pounds. It tows pretty well for a small truck, but where it really shines is when you are off-roading in it.
2020 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel
While the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel may not be the most powerful truck and may not possess the latest technology, it is a great luxury truck. It has a refined interior, leather seating, advanced infotainment, and spacious interiors. To add to its luxury, the manufacturer has reduced engine noise, which means you can easily carry on a conversation while driving.
1991-1993 Dodge D250
This beast is one of the best old-school diesel trucks available, and it was head of its segment back in the 1990s. While the styling may seem a little dated, that’s part of what makes the truck look so cool visually. It was quite powerful compared to its rivals that were launched at about the same time. Right now, this model of the Dodge D250 may not stack up in terms of creature comforts and towing capacity. But, in the 90s, this was an amazing truck.
2008-2010 Ford F250 Super Duty
A number of people who buy diesel trucks end up modifying the vehicle. This probably started because truck owners wanted to get better gas mileage or hauling capacity. Given this, one of the best trucks that you can purchase to modify is the Ford F250.
Apart from the above-mentioned trucks, it’s important that we mention trucks like the brand new Nissan XD, 1999 to 2000 Ford Super Duty, and the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado, which almost made it onto this list. If you are looking to buy a truck with a diesel engine, make sure to study your options and pick one that suits your lifestyle and budget.
