    Toyota has shelved development of a heavy-duty version Tundra due to deteriorating market conditions for full size trucks. Automotive News is reporting a new 4.6-liter V-8 gas engine will replace the current 4.7-liter V-8 in the light-duty Toyota Tundra by 2010 it will have 30 more horsepower and 2mpg over the 4.7.

    What the article doesn't say is whether or not the diesel is on ice too or not. They did say that it was coming in the Tundra and the Seqouia.
