Diesel vehicles are durable, frequently have a better fuel economy than gas engines, and get more torque for better towing. If you’re looking for a great diesel truck or SUV, check out the Chevrolet lineup. Four Chevy models — the Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, and Silverado 1500 — were recently named to U.S. News & World Report’s list of the 15 Best Diesel Vehicles of 2021.
Chevy Diesel SUVs
The Chevy Tahoe and Suburban are a pair of big, family-friendly SUVs that have been redesigned for 2021. Both come with an available 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine that packs 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. The Suburban boasts a maximum towing capacity of 8,000 pounds. With the proper equipment, the 2021 Tahoe does even better with an 8,200-pound max towing capacity.
Chevy Diesel Trucks
The Chevy Colorado’s best tow rating (up to 7,700 pounds) and fuel economy (30 mpg highway*) come when it’s equipped with a diesel engine — available on the LT, Z71, and ZR2 trims. Its bigger sibling, the Silverado 1500, can tow an impressive max of 9,500 pounds with its 3.0-liter Duramax engine. The 2021 Silverado also comes in three cab sizes and different bed lengths providing plenty of versatility for any passenger or cargo needs.
