If you’re preparing to buy a diesel truck, you might want to seriously consider a Chevy model. Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report put out its list of “The 11 Best Diesel Pickup Trucks of 2021.” Chevrolet took over three of the 11 spots on the list, earning recognition for its high torque and impressive towing capacities. That means that all three Chevy truck models are considered among the best diesel pickups on the market. We’ve rounded up just some highlights for each model, to help you know which one would suit your needs best.
With an available Duramax® 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine, the 2021 Colorado midsize truck offers near full-size power. Its diesel powertrain kicks out 181 horsepower, 369 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 7,700 pounds.
