HAP­PEN­INGS IN THE WORLD OF DIESEL POWER

Diesel World - - Contents -

With­out a doubt, diesels have come a long way over the past 20 years, and a re­cent com­par­i­son per­formed by GM Parts On­line spot­lights just how much pro­gres­sion has oc­curred. Its head-to-head match up pits a 6.5L-pow­ered 1998 Chevy Silverado 1500 against a 2018 Chevy Colorado pow­ered by the 2.8L Du­ra­max. The over­all gist? De­spite the mas­sive dif­fer­ence in dis­place­ment and num­ber of cylin­ders, horsepower and torque are es­sen­tially the same, while the Colorado out-tows the Silverado and (not sur­pris­ingly) de­liv­ers con­sid­er­ably bet­ter fuel econ­omy. The study even fac­tors in­fla­tion into the equa­tion to show­case how close in price the two trucks would’ve been (the half-ton would’ve cost $500 more) if they were sold at the same point in time.
