    My girl works over at a local yota dealer and was told by one of the salesman that taco's might be finally coming from the factory with the diesel finally. Is this true? Being that I used to work at a dealer I know how reliable salesman can actually be.

    That's what I fucking thought, so gay. Is it our emission standards or Toyota thinking that American's dont want a diesel taco?

    DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Current motors are crap in comparison to the longevity, economy, and power output of a diesel. The V6 eats up gas like there is not tomorrow and the 2TR is fun, for a mini truck.

    LOL I had heard that as well

    Never said I did, but its a fact that a diesel will get considerably better milleage while producing a more usefull power range.

    they have some derpity derps at this dealer.

    You do realize the yota's bein putting diesel's in their trucks since the pretaco right. Passats werent designed for diesels yet they come with them and do extrodinarily well. 40+ mpg with gobs of low end power.

    Diesel>Gasoline

    has nothing to do with "what the truck was designed to do" if there was an option to make it better would you not choose that option? And I dont want a fullsize truck, already went that route and it was a pain in the ass.

    Every time gas prices go up, there is talk of higher MPG vehicle configurations.

    I personally believe the oil companies are paying the auto manufacturers not to build high MPG engine options.

    Toyota has the best selling small truck already. Unless Ford brings the global Ranger to the US, complete with diesel engine, I don't believe we are going to see anything fancy for the Tacoma.

    The emissions thing is a bunch of BS. If they can get a Powerstroke or a Duramax or Cummins past emissions, then they can get a 4cyl diesel in a Tacoma to pass. They just don't NEED to do it to sell trucks, and they are getting PAID OFF to continue with the inefficient engines.

    I wouldn't touch a diesel. Torque is good for off-roading. But I need power for the other 90% of the time the truck spends on highways.

    Diesels aren't considered "sexy" by the government, while hybrids are. That's why Toyota chooses to spend $1 million per hour in hybrid powertrain development to meet upcoming CAFE requirements, when consumers don't like hybrids (5% of sales volume). We'll probably see smaller-displacement turbo gasoline engines from Toyota soon. Ford's sales success with EcoBoost probably influences everyone else's design direction.

    Don't know much about the Yota diesels, but a friend of mine has an Isuzu diesel from the 80's. It is slow as hell, but gets 40MPG consistently, is reasonably quiet for what it is, and it always starts, even after 30years of use with very few repairs.

    After 30 years of engineering advances, I see NO reason at all why we can't have a 30MPG, 150HP diesel in a small truck that is quiet and comfortable to drive.

    This is social engineering they are playing with. They want to force the working class people of this country into tiny econobox cars, while the wealthy drive around in their fullsize trucks, crashing into and killing the people in the economy cars.

    The technology is there. The rest is just government and big business crap.

    You'd think after the US government publicy hung Toyota for a couple of bunched up floormats, Toyota would get pissed and start selling vehicles that GM won't make, like fuel efficient trucks.

    Also diesel cars absolutely suck, no revs which kills the fun.
    edit: yes I meant CARS, not trucks. They can be useful in trucks.

    Great for street driving but I like to hold a gear for longer than 1 second lol.

    I haven't driven one though so...

    Thats one of the most bad ass cars I've ever driven. If they made an all wheel drive version, I'd own one, no doubt about. I pondered the rwd for a few days before I finally talked myself out of it. Incredible machines for sure.

    Man I want to get my wife one so bad. She will be moving back to Boise in October while I go on deployment. Right now she's got the 24V VR6 Jetta, it has more amenities than my truck and it's an 02
