#1 of 32 Toyota Tundra Diesel?
Jun 24, 2006 (9:02 am)
I just passed 120K on my 2004 4-runner without a single problem. I regularly tow 5000 lb horse trailer. I need a truck! I would like a diesel and I would like a Toyota. Any hope?

One is in the works when ULSD is readily available everywhere. Ditto the Tacoma, but also 4R?, Camry?, Corolla?, Yaris?

Yeah in probally 4 years Toyota will release thier next generation of the Tundra. Diesel will be avalible in the next generation. So I'd buy some other diesel truck now and then in 4 years get the Toyota Tundra Diesel.

I've heard rumors of a 1 ton diesel with and with out dual wheels in the rear by 2010. I've also heard Toyota was developing it with Caterpillar. Although I'm not sure why they would (develop the diesel w/ Cat) as Toyota has diesels all over the world that are very reliable engines.

toyota isn't going to buy engines from anyone. There's too much at stake to risk influence from a vendor, no matter how great Caterpillar (or Cummins) product may be. Take a peak at the specs for the 2.2 liter D-Cat used in Europe. If they can take those power figures (adjusted down 5% for addl. polution control)They would have competitive power and tourque numbers from a 4.4l V8. The Hi-Lux(same platform as the Tacoma) will soon be available with a HO version of the 3l I4.

Toyota Motor Corporation purchased 5.9% of Isuzu a couple of week's ago. Why? Word is that they are looking a their diesel development for Toyota trucks.

I have to disagree here. Isuzu and GM are linked with the DuraMax. I seriously doubt GM will just walkaway from what might be the best truck diesel on the market. I also doubt GM will allow the Tundra to also get the DuraMax to be in competition with the GMT900's.
I believe the CAT deal is all but done but not announced.
Toyota's midsized diesels are among the best in the world also so it doesn't need Isuzu there.
But it does need Isuzu engineers. The one key resource that Toyota lacks is brainpower, not because it's dumb but it's expanding so fast there aren't enough good engineers to go around.
In Tokyo Toyota announced that they are using the Isuzu expertise in small vehicles in order to develop a diesel hybrid by MY 2010.

Toyota is a major shareholder of Hino. I would guess that they would use a Hino diesel, since they own them...
