Among the many decisions you'll need to make, choosing between a gas and diesel truck for sale can be tricky. USA-1 would like to review some crucial information about diesel trucks to help you make an educated choice. Let's learn all about the pros and cons of choosing a diesel model for your next used truck near you.

 

Is it worth it to buy a diesel truck?

 

Diesel trucks offer advantages that other used trucks for sale can't match. However, diesel trucks also carry higher prices than their gasoline counterparts. Consider the following when deciding if a diesel truck for sale is worth it for your lifestyle and budget.

 

  • Diesel engines are reliable and extremely long-lasting.

  • A diesel truck can run up to 35% more efficiently than a gas truck.

  • Since diesel engines use a high compression ratio, they generate more torque and can pull or haul greater weights.

  • A diesel engine will produce less CO2 per gallon of fuel than a gas engine.

  • Diesel trucks hold their value better than other used trucks for sale near you.

  • If you drive on the highway frequently, a diesel truck might be the best option at our Goshen car dealer. The diesel fuel economy and engine design performs better at highway speeds than in-city driving.

 

How many miles is too many for a used diesel truck?

 

Diesel trucks for sale last much longer than the typical gas truck. Because diesel engines are more resilient, you can buy a used truck for sale of much higher mileage with confidence. While the common rule of thumb is to stay under 100,000 miles for a used gas truck, the diesel used trucks near you are reliable for longer. It's common for diesel trucks to last well beyond the 500,000 mile mark, with proper maintenance.

 

That said, our Goshen car dealer suggests shopping for used diesel trucks with under 350,000 miles. Per Prosource Diesel, trucks with Cummins, Powerstroke, or Duramax engines reach "high-mileage" at 350,000 miles. Since the used trucks for sale near you at USA-1 are in wonderful condition, you'll be able to enjoy many years of outstanding performance. 

 

Should I buy a diesel truck as a daily driver?
