Grille Cover?

7405 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  L.O.A.
Here in Montana during the winter I see quite a few diesel powered pickups with a quilted black cover over the front grille.

Can someone explain the logic behind this? We do get a few weeks per winter with temps between -10 and 10 but most winter days are more like 5 to 25 degrees.

Do the covers provide a warmer running temp and more efficiency? Or do they make starting easier?

Regulating the temperature is key for the best performance possible. At least they added it rather than gone with out
I think a lot of chrysler vehicles will be getting these grille shutters, even other vehicles, it's almost becoming an industry standard.
