2011 Toyota Diesel Dually Coming Soon to USA
Edmunds.com has announced that the 2010 model Tundra will feature a 4.5L diesel engine as an option. Provided some rough fuel economy and performance numbers.
Estimated hp: 300 @ 3500 RPM
Estimated torque: 500 lb-ft @ 1600 RPM
Estimated MPG: 22 MPG (both city and highway)
Edmunds.com also announced that the HD Tundra will debut in 2011 or 2012, and that it will feature a 7.0L diesel. We were unable to confirm this. Frankly, it seems a little optimistic considering the current market. Still, it's intriguing information.
You can learn more about the 4.5L in our story, as well as see a video of the engine here:

Our best guess is that the new 4.5L diesel will cost an extra $5k to $6k, which means a new Tundra Limited Crew 4x4 with the diesel may cost as much as $50k!
Exciting times - the Tundra diesel is coming soon!
