Diesel-Powered Vehicles at the 2024 Chicago Auto Show

Say the word "diesel" and people immediately think of dirty, stinky and loud over-the-road trucks. That’s just not true any more. Today’s modern diesel engines are quiet, powerful and efficient. Best of all they don’t smell any more!

Diesel engines are inherently more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. Another advantage of diesel engines is the amount of low-speed grunt they offer. So if you’re pulling a boat out of the water or stump out of the ground, there’s no better choice than a diesel.

Unfortunately, diesel engines are very difficult to make compatible with today's tougher emissions standards. As a result they are being phased out one by one. Still, there are more than a few out there, especially if you are considering a pickup truck.

You can find the following diesel-powered vehicles on display at the 2024 Chicago Auto Show or at the Vehicles on Display section of the auto show Web site.
