2017 Toyota Tundra - history, diesel, specs, video
Toyota Motor Company produces very special popular models for American market, especially Toyota Tundra. Back to 2007, there were some rumors that Toyota had plans to launch a diesel version for its Tundra pickup. In 2008, this information about the launch of production of Toyota Tundra Diesel modification was even confirmed by the president of the company (by the way, together with Toyota Sequoia). However, so far, diesel engines for Tundra lineup remained as rumors.
As cost of fuel is continuously growing, the company had to make the plan work as soon as possible. Moreover, despite diesel consumption will be lower, diesel unit is different from gasoline with more power. Therefore, many car manufacturers including Ford is gradually equipping its large cars with diesel engines. For this reason, the appearance of the novelty was expected in 2010. Although, Ford F150 with diesel power unit was presented, the expected model for Toyota fans did not show up. At that time, the market for trucks recorded slowdown in sales, resulting the production of diesel engines postpone to the following year. Later, the company announced that diesel complete set for Toyota Tundra would not be appeared until 2013.
