When you’ve got a truck, you want to get as much horsepower and torque out of the engine as possible so you can get work done. Some trucks do this with displacement – by putting the biggest possible engine under the hood. While this can work, there are limitations, and fuel efficiency often suffers. Turbocharged trucks dodge this limitation by using an air pump (turbocharger) that directs exhaust gasses to drive a turbine that forces air into the combustion chamber. The dense air helps amplify combustion and squeezes more power out of the fuel. Voila! More horsepower, and more torque, without a big weight or fuel economy penalty.
Here 10 top turbocharged trucks for the 2017 model year.
