Are you looking for a diesel engine upgrade that can withstand rough terrains? Or do you want a diesel engine with high horsepower capabilities? 



The Daily Driver is an excellent choice for casual driving and getting around town. It gives your vehicle that smooth ride and outstanding handling. 

It can help to achieve greater acceleration as well. You can get where you’re going fast without worrying about getting stuck in traffic or losing your cool on the road.

On the other hand, the Workhorse is designed for work—and it shows. It has a durable construction that will last through repeated use, rough terrain, and heavy daily towing.


Engine Size and Power Output

Both of these engines have the same size. But the Daily Driver is what you need if you tend to use your vehicle for short trips or errands and rarely need the extra horsepower. 

It may not boast the same capabilities as the Workhorse, but it’s a beast in its own right. After all, it is an upgrade from the stock manufacturer.

On the other hand, the Workhorse is designed for those that tow large loads daily. Therefore, its build is made to withstand rugged use.

So if you’re a construction worker or have a business that requires you to move heavy cargo around frequently, a Workhorse is what you need. It is the perfect upgrade for a sturdy, reliable truck that can handle heavy loads and last a long time.


Price Point

The Daily Driver is a product designed to help drivers get more out of their vehicles without spending too much money or time on them. It’s one of the most popular options available and is ideal for drivers who want to save on fuel costs while still getting excellent performance from their vehicle. 

It is designed to upgrade your engine to a build with more reliability and power. But if you don’t use it for daily towing, it would still be more economical on your fuel consumption.

The Workhorse diesel engine has a higher price point than the Daily Driver but offers superior performance. This engine is designed for long-haul applications requiring high torque and horsepower, such as heavy equipment transport and delivery.
