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 was told by someone that works for toyota that they are possibly putting acat diesel in the Tundra.
Also, they are working on building a 3/4ton Tundra also.

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.

#25 of 32 Tundra Dually Diesel "Concept" Displayed in LA

Toyota displayed a "concept" vehicle to get consumer feedback at the LA Auto show. As best I can recall, it had 20-inch wheels and used a Hino turbocharged, 6-cylinder, 500 HP, 800 lb-ft torque engine (I am sure about the torque number). It was a big honking dually that looked awesome. Nothing else I know of from Ford, Chevy, or Dodge comes close.

I have owned an 05 Camry 3.3 v6 and it was the worst motor bad on Fuel Regular and the tranny was horible had hard seats and if you steped on the gas pedal the car didnt know what to do.
I traded for an 07 camry very roomy but with a 2.4 just as bad on gas as the 3.3.
I now have an 05 TDI VW 2.0 turbo Passat a little smaller but it is a performer with 44 mpg. Also have a 98 MB e300 turbo 32 + mpg.
Toyota like the american market is trying to sellus on junk expensive hybrid's wake up Toyota we want the 4D. Why is toyota going to put out a v10 gas guzzler diesel...
Theres nothing out there like the Dodge Cummings Turbo Diesel 2 WD 25 26 mpg.
I hope Honda follows thru with its Accord Diesel.
