You should have no problem finding a great selection of second-hand diesel trucks for sale at Auto Shows Sales & Finance.
Diesel Trucks Vs. Gas Trucks
Some used trucks are only available as diesel or gas, although most offer the option of either drive train. The following are just a few of the models that you can find with a gas or diesel engine:
Used Ford F250, Used Ford F350, Used GMC Sierra 2500, Used GMC Sierra 3500, Used RAM 2500, Used RAM 3500, Used Silverado 2500, Used Silverado 3500.
As you try to choose whether you want a gas or diesel engine, keep the following differences and considerations in mind. Remember that these are generalizations, and there are exceptions to the rule.
Initial Cost of Gas or Diesel Trucks
Whether a gas or diesel engine will cost more depends largely on the engine in question, so this does not have a blanket answer.
The durability of Diesel Truck Engines
Diesel engines tend to last longer than gas engines, frequently lasting hundreds of thousands of miles without a problem. This typically comes from the fact that diesel engines have stronger internal components, a necessity for handling higher compression ratios. Of course, gas engines can also last a long time, with one notable tale of a Tundra gas V8 that lasted a million miles.
Maintenance Cost & Fuel Efficiency
Although it varies based on the specific engine, you will typically spend more on maintaining a diesel engine than a gas one, giving gas engines an advantage in this respect. This comes from the larger amounts of oil in diesel, as well as numerous extra components and filters. With recent advances, diesel engines have a clear advantage in terms of fuel economy, with some mid-size trucks easily getting 30 mpg. The advantage for diesel engines in terms of efficiency increases the more you load up your truck.
Towing Vs. Hauling
Diesel tends to be the best choice if you prioritize towing abilities, especially given their fuel economy. While diesel engines tend to do better with towing, gas engines tend to be better with hauling. This comes from the lighter weight of gas engines.
Torque Vs. Acceleration
Diesel trucks tend to have better torque, a key factor in their greater towing abilities. By contrast, gas engines tend to have more horsepower and better acceleration.
Short Box vs. Long Box
Of course this is something only you can answer! Whether it’s an 8 foot long box for easier fifth wheel towing, or hauling sheets of drywall, or a 6.5 foot short box for easier maneuverability and parking, there’s a good chance you’ll find it at Auto Show!
Duramax? Cummins? Powerstroke?
Although we’ll likely never change the mind of a die-hard brand loyal, the reality is Ford, Dodge, and GM all build a pretty great motor these days. The old 5.9L Cummins diesel has been upgraded to a 6.7L with a ton of torque and reliability, the 6.7L Power stroke is equally potent and for anyone who bleeds blue, it’s obviously the only way to go! The GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Silverado HD both are available with the 6.6L Duramax engine reaching nearly 1000 lb-ft of torque. If you ask us, they’re all a great choice if you’re going diesel with your next pre-owned truck!
