Tundra to get a diesel option?!?!?!?!

Toyota mulling Cummins diesel for Tundra? - Autoblog

When Bloomberg spoke to Toyota USA Sales CEO Kazua Ohara recently, we highlighted his comments on the possible return of the Toyota Supra. However, the interview started with Ohara discussing the Tundra, and how it would take time to pinpoint and hone the pickup truck's brand image in the minds of consumers. That effort could get a boost, with a report in Edmunds saying that Toyota is "evaluating" the addition of a Cummins turbodiesel to the Tundra's engine options.

The Cummins powerplant is one of two options for the moment, the other being a hybrid powertrain. If the oil-burner got the thumbs-up, Toyota would follow the recent example of Nissan, which announced it would put a Cummins turbodiesel into its 2015 Titan. While the two Japanese companies make a closer comparison since they're both talking about Cummins applications in light-duty trucks, if it happens, it could be seen as further diluting the once-exclusive tie-up that Ram trucks has had with Cummins even though Ram has used Cummins in its heavy-duty truck.

Toyota hasn't said when it will decide on which direction to take, but either will be a move for the better in the view of segment watchers; said the first of its top-five fixes for the Tundra would be a better engine, perhaps a diesel-electric hybrid from Toyota's Hino unit. Cummins told Edmunds it can supply a second manufacturer with the 5.0-liter diesel that Nissan will be using, so we wouldn't be surprised to see it end up in a Toyota or somewhere else.

I would buy a Cummins Tundra in a second.
Preferably in white, with black wheels.

Fix that grill, throw on a long box, and I'm sold.

Just too bad they would never consider a diesel in the Tacoma.

Diesel Taco?
Methinks you have to go to Brazil for that. Also, Brazil has super hot chicks and lots of meat on sticks. It's a rad place.

mmmmm, millions and millions of Brazilian chicks.
