The first characteristic is the cost. Even though the cost of a gas truck may be a little less, you will not get the product of a diesel engine. A brand new 2015 F-150 is around 30,000.

With the parts that do not last long that means regular maintenance and up keeping when something goes wrong. Although a diesel truck is more expensive, you can expect much more out of it. A 2015 Ford XLT Super Duty is around $51,000 brand new. Although it is much more expensive, the price comes with dependability. With a diesel engine, the parts are made stronger and makes the truck much more dependable. If a diesel truck is properly maintained it can go for 500,000 all the way up to 1,000,000
