The Benefits of Diesel Engines

After years of hopeful fans asking for it, Ford has finally decided to add a diesel engine option to its incredibly popular Ford F-150. Debuting on the 2018 F-150 later this year, the diesel engine is sure to be a hit—but why is diesel such a popular choice?

One of the primary benefits of diesel engines is the boost in fuel economy. Diesel engines can improve fuel efficiency by 20% or more, according to AutoTrader, and they’re even better than hybrids when it comes to saving gas on the highway. This is why semi-trucks usually have diesel engines—so if you do a lot of long-distance highway hauls in your pickup, the F-150 diesel will be perfect for you.

Another benefit is that diesel engines accelerate more smoothly from a stop than gasoline engines. They need a lot less revving to get going, which makes them more comfortable to drive. Diesel engines are also better for towing because they provide higher torque—another thing that makes them such a desirable feature for work trucks.

These are just a few of the perks of diesel engines. If you want to know more about the delights of diesel or the upcoming Ford F-150 diesel, give us a call today at Pegues Hurst Ford.
