Big Power in a Small Package
Quiet and cost-efficient: Gasoline power modules use the proven 6.0L Chevrolet V8 engine, with a Chevrolet 6-speed automatic transmission. With less vibration and rattling than diesel, quieter engines mean quieter rides, and a more comfortable overall driving experience. Repairs are usually minimal and less expensive per visit than a diesel, allowing you to be on the road sooner and more often.
Longer life for the longer hauls: Diesel engines in the reliable Isuzu 5.2L 4 cylinder turbocharged engine and Aisin automatic transmission mean longevity. At up to 30% more mpg than gasoline, trucks running more than 20,000 miles/year need this kind of cost-savings. Though diesel engine repairs can be more costly than gasoline, they are far more rare - and with lifespans upwards of 500,000 miles, your budget with thank you!
