Shouldn't be to long, new diesel regs come out in 2017, and Toyota themselves had said that no diesel option will be available until at least then because anything brought out before then would be to expensive and be outdated in two years. They even mentioned they were surprised but applauded Nissan and Ram for doing the same thing they refused to.
With Dodge and Nissan both having half-ton diesels and GMs new diesel Colorado for 2015, I'm sure the pressure is on.
I will have a diesel tundra as soon as one is available. The Tundra now is already a high mileage capable machine, and most of your current diesel options are good for a couple hundred thousand miles, slap the two together and I don't think you could kill it.
I'd really like to see it paired with a true 3/4T model. I get our trucks now are over built and are nearing 3/4T specs, but a true 3/4T will open up a lot more options for towing/plowing/ect.
