At one time I thought 09. I stand corrected. Toyota is testing the diesel. Looks like the diesel won't be ready until the nest generation.
Hino makes great engines, and I was thrilled to see an inline 6 diesel in the concept Tundra at SEMA this year. But it sounds like it is too good to be true. That Hino would pull the earth if you could hook on to it.
I am eager to see Toyota step up into the 3/4 and 1 ton+ diesel truck market.
For more information on a diesel Tundra check out the Jan/Feb issue of "Truck Trend."
I find this interesting, as this is discussed on many message boards. I'm just not sure what a diesel would add to a 1/2 ton truck. The current tow rating would not increase, mileage and longevity are still a question mark for newer diesels (which meet 2010 EPA requirements), maintenance is more expensive and diesel fuel is currently about 40 cents more per gallon than regular. What are we trying to achieve by wanting a diesel?
Not to say that diesel is hard to find in rural areas.
