Why Do Diesel Engines Produce More Torque?
It’s no secret diesel engines produce more torque, but why does that happen? It all comes down to
- Higher Compression Ratio
- Higher Energy Value
Advantages of a RAM Diesel Truck
- Higher Compression Ratio: This measures the maximum and minimum volume in an engine cylinder. It’s larger in a diesel, so they don’t rev as high but produce more torque force.
- Higher Energy Value: Diesel contains more potential heat than gas. Since diesel is denser, it can store more energy and produce more power when combusted.
