Starting off this list is the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel. The 1500 can tow a solid 9,200 pounds with 420 lb-ft. While that may seem underpowered compared to other trucks on this list, the EcoDiesel excels in offering an upscaled interior, a smoother ride than most competitors, and good gas mileage to boot.

Overall, this truck is perfect if you’re transitioning to diesel-powered trucks because you want to, but don’t necessarily need to.

 

2018 Ford F-150 Diesel

When equipped with the new diesel V6 engine, your F-150 will be able to tow up to 11,400 pounds with 440 lb-ft of torque. Along with towing power, the F-150 Diesel exhibits a nice 22 mpg in the city and 30 for the highway.

 

2018 GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HD

With stronger diesel performance comes a larger price tag. And while the 2018 GMC 3500 HD may be very powerful, you’ll need to be ready to commit to the cost.

Adding a diesel engine bumps the price of the regular gas-powered Sierra 2500 up an additional $9,390 from the starting tag of $38,800. With that cost, you’ll be able to reel nearly 23,300 pounds with 910 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, 4-wheel drive is going to cost you extra as well.

 

2018 Ram 2500/3500 HD

We’ve moved to business from pleasure. You aren’t going to spend time hauling campers and boats with the Ram 3500. No, this is for the big league projects.

The 2018 Ram 3500 HD has an insane max towing of 30,000 pounds with 800 lb-ft. If you aren’t hauling construction machines and equipment then you aren’t using this truck to its fullest.

 

2018 Ford Super Duty

Here we are at the top. The Ford Super Duty is America’s ultimate diesel performance vehicle. This is the sandbox of truck customization.

To fully unlock the Super Duty’s power, you’ll need to shell out an extra $9,120 on top of $42,000 base price for a 6.7- liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V8 engine. A whopping 840 horsepower lets you push out an incredible 925 lb-ft of torque. And the towing capacity? A staggering 34,000 pounds.
