Look at ford's attempt at a diesel a few years ago; it blew flames out the exhaust pipe.

Why Tacomaworld wants to converse over things that inferior companies are doing because they lost all their customer base and need to gain it back before Toyota and Honda come with guns a-blazing is beyond me.
So... why are you here again?

I hope they are successful! Small diesels are everywhere in Europe and would add significantly to the capability of our small trucks.

I hope Nissan builds a beefed up front end to hold that 5.0 Cummins and that is going to hurt ram sales a lot since most people will go to the titan for half ton now

Dodge has sold a lot of these trucks pre ordered. I went to Europe recently and so many diesel options. I think we are in the time of change for american cars & trucks. 25k for a chevy cruze diesel car with 40mpg, I also just saw a tesla parked on the side of highway most likely ran out of power. The torque and mileage is addicting. I love my truck but as soon as tacoma makes the leap its sold. If they make me wait to long yota will lose a customer.
