Diesel trucks offer significant savings at the pump.

At an event hosted by the Washington Automotive Press Association, executives from General Motors confirmed that diesel engines continue to play an important role in the company’s lineup of products. 

“The Diesel propulsion system remains a key component of GM’s vehicle lineup, with 13 different models offering Diesel as an option,” said Dr. Pierpaolo Antonioli, General Motors Executive Director, Global Propulsion Systems Diesel Sector.

“In the U.S. and Canada, the introduction of the Chevrolet Colorado Diesel mid-size pickup and the GMC Terrain Diesel compact SUV have proven to be a success,” said Mike Siegrist, General Motors Regional Chief Engineer.

Casey Selecman, an analyst for IHS Markit, explained the benefits of diesel vehicles.“Diesel pick-ups gain 20 percent to 35 percent more torque and towing power,” Selecman said, “and can go an extra 150 miles (240 L) per tank of fuel, which can save owners an average of 200 gallons (757 L) of fuel per year.”
