Here are the five best truck engines of the year 2020:

Jeep Eco Diesel

This truck is not so good in speed, but when it comes to fuel economy and efficiency, the Ram 1500 has the best engine. Dubbed as “Eco Diesel,” the engine is a 3.0 liter, V6 turbocharged engine. The turbo is what gives this engine its stellar fuel economy. It provides 22 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highways, and 26 mpg on the road and highway combined. 

Ford Power Stroke

The 2021 Ford 250 Super Duty comes housed with a 6.7-liter diesel engine, which pumps up the power of 475 horsepower and produces the highest torque of them all, which is 1050 lb/ft. This engine is enough to tow almost 37,000 pounds.

This truck is yet to come in 2021, but the engine specifications are mind-blowing. Be warned, the Ram TRX Hellcat is thirsty for gasoline, so it is not the best option in fuel economic trucks, but the power this 6.2-liter V8 turbocharged engine produces goes from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. These extreme values are possible due to the extraordinary ability built, almost pushing up to 700 horsepower. This truck is a fan-favorite.

Ford Power Boost

Electric motors paired with the traditional piston engine are the next big thing you need in your vehicle to zoom through the roads. The Ford F-150 comes housed with the machine, dubbed as “Ford’s Power Boost.”

The main specification of the engine is the harmonious blend of sustainable electrical motor and the fuming engine. The combination of an electric motor and fuel engine is termed a hybrid vehicle. The 3.5 liter V6 turbo engine, combined with a 35 kW electric motor, gives immense power to the car, a whopping 430 horsepower, and a turning capacity of 570 lb/ft.

GM 6.2 Liter V8

The GM V8 is an engine that is self-explanatory. The GMC Sierra 1500 comes with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, giving immense torque and speed. With a 10-speed automatic transmission, this engine is more than enough to move a heavy truck like the GMC Sierra 1500. The power produced by this engine is monstrous as well, reaching big numbers like 420 horsepower and a robust 460 lb/ft. Torque is just what this engine needs to move the GMC Sierra 1500. General Motors is the best manufacturer of classic V8 engines.

It is hopeful that in the year of 2021, people will get to see even more fantastic pickup trucks housing roaring engines, which makes them stand out amongst the pickup truck crowd. Here’s to better machines and driving pleasure in 2021.
