    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.

    Well I guess we'll take what we can get at this point. A 1/2 would be a great place to start. Personally with what I do to my truck I'd snap a half ton. I think it Toyota brought out a 1 ton diesel they'd really have a contender. I love everything else about the Tundra and it just needs a diesel and more beef (like 6 tires).

    1/2 3/4 1t ultimately all would get my vote.

    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.

    Keep in mind that no domestic maker has a diesel in their 1/2 ton line-up either.
