The Advantages of Buying a Diesel Vehicle in Spokane, WA

If you're currently in the market for a new or used vehicle, you may be trying to decide exactly what you need in a new model, such as interior volume and capability. Perhaps you're even trying to decide whether you should drive a vehicle that is powered by diesel or gasoline engine. As far as the latter is concerned, there are advantages of driving a diesel over typical gasoline engines that make them more suitable for the job. Let's take a look at a few benefits of buying a diesel vehicle to see if driving one is right for you.

One of the advantages of driving a diesel is that they offer better fuel economy: Since diesel engines generate more power from less fuel, they're not only more efficient, but they're often projected to get even better fuel economy. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel, for example, is powered by a 3.0-liter V6, which generates up to 30 highway mpg and 730 miles of total range. As a comparison, the standard Jeep Grand Cherokee only offers up to 26 highway mpg.

Looking to save a little along the way? Lower cost of ownership is another benefit of driving a diesel vehicle. In fact, diesel vehicles don't require as demanding of a maintenance schedule as a gasoline powered vehicle do. Diesel vehicles also offer a lower tax rate, since road tax laws are now based around CO2 emissions. Finally, diesel vehicles typically generate more power and greater torque. For example, you're currently in the market for a new truck, take a look at the new Ram 1500 EcoDiesel which produces up to 240-horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. As a comparison, the base-model Ram 1500 offers around 269 pound-feet of torque.

As you can see there are a variety of benefits that come with driving a diesel-powered vehicle. Are you ready to learn more about driving the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel, or another diesel model? Visit our showroom at 7700 East Sprague Avenue in Spokane for a test drive today.
