Hard-core outdoorsmen, farmers and ranchers often opt for a pickup with a diesel engine. Here are some of the reasons.
Fuel efficiency is on everyone's mind these days. A diesel engine will increase your gas mileage by 30-35%, which benefits both you and the economy. If you don't enjoy stopping frequently at the gas station, you should consider choosing a Ford F-250 or Ford F-350 with a diesel engine. With a longer lasting gas tank, you'll be spending more time on the road or in the field and less time at the gas station.
A diesel truck fits the rough and tumble lifestyle of a North Dakotan with a tougher, longer-lasting engine. Diesel engines are known for durability, which will keep you on the road longer and increase resale value.
Looking for some extra torque? You should probably opt for the diesel, which packs more power and torque than a regular engine. The 6.7L V-8 diesel engine available in our lineup of diesel trucks will provide all the torque you need to let your truck do the heavy lifting.
Because you are getting a tougher engine with better fuel economy and more horsepower, you'll have to make a few sacrifices.
Trucks with diesel engines are initially more expensive than trucks with regular gasoline engines. You have to pay a little more for a higher quality and tougher engine.
Another disadvantage is that despite increased fuel economy, diesel fuel will cost you more per gallon than regular gasoline. But keep in mind, that your diesel truck will use less fuel due to efficient MPG.
