Diesel has an estimated net worth of $225 million as of 2023. He has starred in several other major franchises outside of Fast & Furious including The Chronicles of Riddick and XXX.

Diesel plans to conclude his longstanding Fast & Furious franchise after 2025’s expected Fast X: Part Two which would cut off his most reliable source of income throughout his career.

Vin Diesel has made at least $124 million alone from his eight leading roles in the Fast & Furious franchise.
