Chevrolet Decides to Offer Diesel Powered Vehicles

The failure of the Volkswagen diesel engines to pass air checks without cheating has made car makers gun shy about using diesel as a fuel source. However, Chevrolet has announced they are making new diesel based vehicles including the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. GM says that the new Equinox will get 577 miles on a full tank. They have also said that the torque will be much higher and will be able to accelerate at much higher speed than other vehicles because of that same torque.
