10 of the Best Diesels Sold in the U.S.

The death of diesel in the United States has been greatly exaggerated. It’s alive and well, despite the wrath that the technology has weathered in the wake of the Volkswagen diesel emissions cheating scandal. VW’s diesel fortunes in America ended, but other automakers are forging forward with new diesel models.

Chevrolet, Jaguar, and Land Rover are especially bullish on the technology, installing diesel engines in several new SUVs, cars, and trucks over the past year. The turbodiesels offered today have excellent fuel economy, increased range between fill-ups, and ample performance.

The utility of diesel was never questioned in the heavy-duty pickup market, where buyers who tow large trailers revel in the high torque created by diesel engines.

Regulators have increased their scrutiny of diesel-powered vehicles, so the introduction of some 2017 models has been delayed while their emissions compliance certification is pending. We’ve picked 10 of the best diesels currently available on the market, and you can see them on the following slides.
