Gas VS Diesel – Which Silverado is Better?

Back in their formative years, trucks were very simple. There weren’t very many options to choose from and drivers didn’t really have very many luxuries on board. Instead, trucks were seen less as a daily drivable vehicle and more as a work vehicle.

These days, however, it seems like truck owners can have their cake and eat it too. There are all sorts of different luxuries and features that one can choose from when they purchase a pickup truck. This might mean picking out an interior, color selection, and even things like high tech infotainment systems.

One of the really big questions when purchasing a truck is “gasoline or diesel?”

This is certainly a very valid question in just about every application. I think that most truck enthusiasts might have their eye on that shiny new diesel. However, with the price tag and maintenance that comes along with it, is it always worth it? Sure, the diesel-powered truck is the end all be all. It’s the truck that can pull the most and work most efficiently. However, in the vast majority of cases, most people probably don’t need a diesel-powered truck.

This time, we dive into a little comparison between the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD in gasoline and diesel-powered variants. These trucks share many things in common. The one thing that they differ on is the power source under the hood.

In this day and age where everything seems to be more efficient than it has ever been, is there any reason to really buy the diesel-powered truck? Will the gasoline engine be able to come close to the torque provided by the diesel-powered monster to pull the heaviest load? Both of these trucks certainly have tons of upside. Which one is truly best resides in the eye of the beholder, though? We leave it up to TFL Truck to sort it all out.
