At Toyota of Orlando, we know we’ve got a pretty wide range when it comes to vehicles. We’ve for powerful new Toyota trucks, eco-friendly hybrid options, sporty sedans and hatchbacks, and spacious rides that are perfect for the family. One thing that we haven’t seen yet, however, is a diesel-powered Toyota! The main reason it hasn’t made an appearance? It hasn’t existed in America… but is that about to change?
Toyota Verso will offer a new Toyota diesel option
The auto industry is buzzing right now because the Toyota Verso – a slick compact hatchback that you’ll only find in Europe, Japan, South Africa, China, and Israel – is about to get some diesel power under the hood! Toyota is taking a page out of BMW’s book and integrating this technology into the Verso to make it more competitive in the European car market. However, will it be making its way to American shores anytime soon?
What are the perks of a diesel-powered Orlando Toyota?
No promises, but here at our Orlando Toyota dealership we’re hoping that this might be the case. We haven’t seen a diesel-powered new Toyota hit our dealership yet, and there are some definite benefits to using this particular type of fuel! Let’s take a closer look what might perks you might get if you drove a diesel-powered new Toyota in Orlando!
Better fuel economy: Believe it or not, you’ll get better fuel efficiency from a diesel engine than you do from your traditional gasoline engine! Some diesel engines can boost fuel efficiency by up to 20% – that’s a huge improvement and will definitely help you save at the pump!
Higher resale value: Our new Toyota in Orlando are already renowned for their incredible resale value, and adding a diesel engine into that mix can only improve it! Diesel engines typically are assumed to have higher reliability and durability than a traditional gasoline engine, so buyers are willing to shell out a little bit more money for their purchase.
Improved performance: If performance is an important aspect of your drive time, you might want to consider what a diesel-powered new Toyota in Orlando could offer you! It often brings improved acceleration into the picture, and they tend to perform better on the highway (and get incredible fuel economy for that type of driving as well).
Better towing capabilities: Diesel-powered engines tend to take things to the next level when it comes to towing. They generally have more torque to offer than traditional gasoline-powered engines, and torque is an extremely important element when it comes to towing (it gets the entire vehicle moving).
More power: Some drivers insist that not only do diesel engines provide better acceleration, they also just feel more powerful from behind the wheel. If this is key to your driving experience, a diesel engine is definitely something to consider.
