A Diesel Truck Or A Toyota Tundra?

With many truck fans looking at truck options, we wanted to take a look at the comparison between the Toyota Tundra and diesel engines. The Toyota name brings assurance and peace of mind for consumers, however with such popularity in diesels, it’s important to have facts before making a decision.

Diesel engines gained popularity over the years largely because of the great fuel economy you can get, roughly 25-30% better, and also because of their higher torque ratings. Diesels don’t need ignition tune ups because they’re built without spark plugs or distributers, so there’s another small savings they give you, and because the engines are built so tough they have a reputation of lasting a long time. There are some things to consider about owning a diesel though before you dive in. Right off the front end, a diesel truck will cost more to purchase for the same trim level as a gasoline powered truck, and although diesels have a reputation to save you money, reputations don’t always stand to be completely true. There are maintenance costs that quickly add up that a prospective buyer should consider, some of the maintenance cost are higher, and if left unattended serious repairs may come at a premium. On top of that, to reduce nasty emissions some new diesel vehicles require additives every time you fill up. So although you may be filling up less, the costs may balance out in the big picture.

The Toyota Tundra is a truck to seriously consider if you’re looking for durability and a powerful reputation. Even though it initially had domestic truck fans skeptical, the Tundra quickly became accepted and its aggressive grille is recognizable coming down the streets or flanking a job site. The Tundra offers buyers 3 cab sizes, long and short bed options, and a variety of trims and options to customize your truck to fit your needs. With Towing capacities of 10,196lbs and a maximum payload of 1,895lbs, the Tundra is tough enough to take what you throw at it. The Tundra offers plenty of safety features including Automatic Limited Slip Differential, Vehicle Stability Control, and Active Traction Control. The Tundra can be stacked with technology, entertainment features and higher end finishes for the buyer that wants a bit more in their vehicle and with all the Tundra has to offer. We suggest coming down to Noral Toyota and checking one out and seeing for yourself all that this truck can do for you, our sales staff are happily waiting to assist you.
