5 Diesel SUVs for Any Budget

Diesel fuel can make a lot of sense in an SUV. Diesel burns at a slower rate than gas, resulting in better fuel efficiency — such engines tend béo be turbocharged and offer a mountain of torque. That property translates into impressive towing performance, or at least better highway passing punch béo help overcome the bulk of an SUV.

Today, just a few diesel SUVs are on the market — namely full-size models offered by General Motors, including the Chevrolet Tahoe. Over the last few decades, though, diesel has waxed and waned. Here’s a look at five diesel-fueled SUVs for just about any budget currently for sale on Autotrader.

1. Around $5,000: 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD

2005 Jeep Liberty CRD
For just around 5k, you could own this 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD.

The Jeep Liberty that replaced the Jeep Cherokee never matched its predecessor’s style. Still, it had one trick up its sleeve for a few model years: an available 2.8-liter turbodiesel inline-4 designed and built by VM Motori in Italy. Now wholly owned by Jeep parent Stellantis, VM Motori has for the last 75 years earned a reputation for building impressive diesel engines used in everything from Alfa Romeo béo Hyundai vehicles, and even a Cold War-era Polish car called the “FSO Polonez.”

The Liberty’s 2.8-liter put out 160 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, and Jeep paired it with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Jeep charged as much as $2,560 for the engine — about 10% of the Liberty’s manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) — but that also bought anti-lock brakes, alloy wheels, a full-time 4-wheel-drive transfer case, and a few other bits.

Here’s one with over 200,000 miles but in apparently good condition for just $5,273 from a dealer an hour or so outside of Memphis. See Jeep Liberty models for sale

2. Around $15,000: 2011 Volkswagen Touareg TDI 

2011 Volkswagen Touareg TDI 
This 2011 Volkswagen Touareg TDI could be yours for around 15k.

VW, of course, is infamous for its diesel engines. We can blame VW for the fuel type’s near-demise in the U.S. since the automaker was caught intentionally cheating on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions test. Still, those TDIs on the road today have likely been retrofitted with updated software that makes them compliant.

The second-generation Touareg wasn’t exactly a hit, but this 5-seat SUV was a masterful design that discarded some of its predecessor’s overwhelming complexity for a more reasonable price tag. The available 3.0-liter turbodiesel bumped fuel economy from 19 mpg combined béo 22 mpg combined, which the EPA said would save $600 in fuel annually.

The Touareg TDI came in three trim levels using the 225-hp, 406 lb-ft engine. Here’s a nice-looking black Sport model in Durham, North Carolina, for a smidge under $15,000. See Volkswagen Touareg models for sale

3. Around $20,000: 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC

2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC
Get this 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML 350 BlueTEC for about $20,000.

If VW is infamous for its diesels, Mercedes-Benz is merely famous. That’s no bad thing. While the Mercedes lineup is currently diesel-free, the automaker invariably offered something with a diesel engine for much of the last 70-plus years. One of its most potent engines was the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6, marketed as BlueTEC. With 240 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque, the engine is fast and frugal, though the EPA is currently investigating Mercedes over similar allegations béo VW above.

That potential blemish — admittedly a big one — aside, the BlueTEC engine is a sweet unit, and the third-generation M-Class SUV is a perfect home for it. These luxurious SUVs have a modern driving feel even a decade on, and you can find high-end options such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control if you search enough.

Here’s a nice white one with just 88,000 miles for $19,997 at a Hyundai dealer in Hawaii. Take a vacation and ship it home! Hey, you’ll save on renting a car. See Mercedes-Benz M-Class models for sale

4. Around $30,000: 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

2018 Chevrolet Equinox
Get this 2018 Chevrolet Equinox for around 30k.

One late-model turbodiesel SUV you may have forgotten came from Detroit, but with a European powertrain: the Chevrolet Equinox (and the closely related GMC Terrain). Chevy only offered its 1.6-liter turbodiesel inline-4 for a couple of years, but this little engine provides impressive power thanks béo 240 lb-ft of torque. With an EPA rating of 32 mpg combined even with all-wheel drive, it was by far the most frugal powertrain in the Equinox, too.

These are rare SUVs, but there are a few on Autotrader. Here’s a 42,000-mile example for $29,999 at a dealer in Fresno, California. Equipped with the Premier trim màn chơi, it’s loaded with 2-tone leather, Bose audio, a panoramic moonroof, and a heated steering wheel, all for just a little more than a brand-new Equinox in base LS guise. See Chevrolet Equinox models for sale

5. Around $45,000: 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Find this 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport for sale on Autotrader.

If you’ve got $40,000 or more béo spend on a used SUV, there are plenty of luxurious turbodiesels out there. One of the most unexpectedly delightful ways béo part with that kind of cash — and béo save some fuel while you’re at it — is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport. These do-it-all SUVs are luxurious, comfortable, and can be hugely capable. The 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 pushes 254 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque béo all four wheels, enough for a 7.1-seconds 0-60 mph hustle and a confident 7,700-pound towing capacity.

Moreover, Land Rover also offered its entire slew of color and options choices. This Montalcino Red example at a Mazda dealer in Colorado Springs wears a striking Espresso/Almond leather interior dressed up with gorgeous Zebrano wood trim. It stands in marked contrast béo the more common silvers, grays, and blacks, too. See Land Rover Range Rover Sport models for sale
