In the olden days, diesel trucks were used to carry large heavy load between
two destinations but all that has changed with recent years. Trucks nowadays no
longer remained just a basic utility vehicle, it has grown to be so much more.
Even though diesel trucks are improving in its other areas such as
comfortability and sporting a fancier outlook, the main evolution of the diesel
truck is in its performance sector. It has grown so tremendously until a point
where some diesel trucks have been known as high performance vehicles.
Normally, in order to get the truck carrying huge loads to move on all terrains
would required around 3 litres of cubic capacity engine but as these trucks
grew bigger in size and much heavier, a larger engine would be needed as well
to cope with the increased burden. Hence, today, the cutting point for a diesel
truck engine is 5 litres and anything else above 6 litres is unnecessary.
In the predecessor of diesel trucks, it is unheard of they need turbochargers
but in today trucks, it is not just an optional item anymore, it is a
necessity. Almost all trucks nowadays have a turbocharger under its belly to
boost its performance giving it that extra vroom to challenge any rough driving
Besides the turbocharger alone, additional enhancements such as higher grade
air filters and intake modules as well as advanced intercooler system are also
installed. And if these are not enough, power-freaks can also opt for
common-rail diesel engine instead of the regular diesel.
The main aim of the design of a diesel truck is to be able to handle and
virtually conquer all rough terrains at high speed without trouble. While
previously, this record belong to the SUVs and roadsters class of vehicles,
today it seems like there’s a new kid in the neighbourhood who want a slice of this pie. Everyone,
welcome the diesel truck to the club!
Not forgetting in its comfortability department, diesel trucks nowadays have
the look and feel similar to a normal car’s interior so as to reassure the driver of the truck’s capabilities and performance.
To sum it up, the new diesel truck has evolved beyond any expectations until it
can outrun any sports sedan any day. With such a big leap in performance, the
new diesel truck truly offers a marvellous driving experience for those with
need for speed.
