I'm very very curious to see if Toyota can strike a deal with Cummins like Nissan has done to put the 5.0 V-8 Cummins powered turbo diesel in the future tundras. Has anyone heard if this could become reality?

I'll be the 1st to order one if they are able to strike a deal! The durability of a toyota truck, with Cummins power would be unstopable!!!!

Sales rep I bought mine from says Toyota has been working with Hino for a few years now to develop a diesel in the Tundra and expects that's who they will end up using.

Toyota doesn't need a diesel engine from another company, they already have their own diesels in other parts of the world. That said, I doubt we'll ever see a diesel Tundra.

If Toyota brings any diesels to the states for the Tundra, it will be the 1VD-FTV currently seeing use in Australia and South America. To my knowledge, they aren't even in talks with Cummins, nor do they need to be really.

My cousin works (line manager) at the San Antonio Toyota plant and he says that they will be offering a different engine next yr (more power with better fuel mileage) but no diesel.

Be very interesting to see how we'll the Titan sells with the available cummins under the hood. I'll be very curious to see how they price the truck vs the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks with a diesel.

Wait. Not so fast. Toyota also made other trucks but chose to build one in the USA.

It is actually more likely Toyota would use a cummins. They will ONLY use American made motors for the Tundra. Period.

In keeping with the most American made truck theme. I highly doubt they will move away from that.

Nissan is gona spank dodge with there 5.0 lol only smart thing dodge has ever done was put the 6bt in there 3/4ton+ trucks.. But that engine line is way to heavy for a 1/2.. Since they actually weigh a 1/2 ton dry. Pray the Toyota dosnt go with international if they get a diesel. Ford dropped them after there 6.0 and 6.4 turned out to be lemmon engines

Is there more than one plant that builds Tundra's? I though all were built at the same plant. :p

This seems way more likely. Also this will probably be direct injected, among other design changes. This could be the end to the TRD Supercharger option.

Glad I got in on the 5.7 before its gone, can't wait to get the Supercharger.

Indeed.

I also don't want to be the test mule for any maker's first year with all new motor/trans combo.

I like to see 2-3 yrs at least to work the kinks out and prove worthy of purchase.
