    I wonder if it will be a gm engine or an Isuzu like the duramax.

    :) I guess we will now see if Toyota will now respond to market conditions and offer the 2.5 Litre and the 3Litre V6 that it sells in the Hilux. :rolleyes: The Hilux offers both manual and automatic for both diesels. Just bring over the Hilux Diesels and most people will forget the Tacoma.

    The Dodge Ram diesel for the 1500 is made by an Italian firm too. Why is it the Americans don't know how to build diesels or don't have the desire to? I thought diesels were actually lower tech engines. Surely it can't be that hard to develop their own small diesels can it?

    It makes sense to have small diesels in the 1/2 tonne trucks. Smart move by Dodge and Chev. I would buy a Tacoma diesel if it were available

    But Diesels can be tuned!!! And a tuned diesel can get you higher MPG's and additional power. To a certain point of course.

    ^I'd assume GM already tuned their diesels for power and fuel economy when they started selling the trucks in Thailand and Australia a couple of years ago. GM will have to do more tuning just to not lose any power from the additional emission-control devices they'd have to install for North America.

    I would rather have the domestics outsouce there engines to other company's than try to make there own diesel the reliabity of a gm diesel would scare me ahah.

    There may still be some diesel-design expertise left at Isuzu. Could just be naivete on my part, though. GM automatic transmissions are still pretty good.

    At 346/180 it should be on par with the Tacoma...or faster. Not quite a pig? In fact in a similarly weighted Colorado I'd say it would trounce the current Tacoma both in a 0-60 and at the gas station. As much as I like my Tacoma it either needs another 50hp or 5mpg's...or both!
