Torque is the engine’s twisting capability needed to pull heavy loads. Diesel engines produce more torque which means higher towing capacities compared to gas engines. This also means a smoother ride when towing heavy loads like a boat or trailer. Diesel engines also produce their peak torque at much lower RPM’s. This means that getting going and holding speed the engine will not need to to downshift as much.
Diesel trucks tend to have better fuel economy because the engine can work without strain. They have more torque, which enhances fuel efficiency.
