We're so frustrated with Ford/Chevy junk they call trucks and looking to get something reliable for snow plow/tree removal (need dump) business. We need 1 ton or better - thinking about Nissan DU. Worried won't be able to get parts if anything happens.... anyone have suggestions for RELIABLE work truck? Thanks ahead of time.

Toyota is about to inroduce a V8 4.5L DOHC 4-V turbo diesel in the Aussie Land Cruiser 70. If I were a betting man, this is the diesel that the 1/2-ton Tundra will get in few years.

Toyota has to build a diesel because Honda is building one for the Ridgeline.

Heavy Duty Diesel
Toyota Motor Corporation has been eyeing the Ford F-250, and Ford F-350 market for a while now, and they have announced that when the Tundra half-ton sales hit 200,000 units per year they will start production of a Tundra diesel. It may be called the Tundra 2500 , and the Tundra 3500 . It is speculated that Toyota will use a 6.4 liter V10 diesel that will produce anywhere from 380-420 horsepower and around 750 pound feet of torque. Motor Trend, and Car and Driver magazines have reported that production for a heavy-duty Tundra will start anywhere from late 2008 to 2010.

Word in SAT is it will introduce at the 2008 Chicago auto show and be available as a 2010 model in spring of 2009, the diesel engine will be 10 cyl but more like a VW W10 configuration, designed by Toyota's Hino, castings done in Mexico, with final machine work and assembly done by CAT at a plant in SAT that CAT purchased about a year ago a good possibility with a CAT tranny possible, Tundra's June sales figures put the Tundra at a 200,000 units per year sales rate or above thus exceeding their target in a tough pickup market,

I think those are excellent power targets, and Toyota should NOT produce a diesel/HD unless they can reach those. That will be the cost of entry.
