2017 Toyota Tundra Diesel Engine
Some people might consider Carter’s hint for 2017 Toyota Tundra Diesel to be something special. But this is not the first time a representative from Toyota talks about the possibility of Tundra and Cummins. Back in 2013, there was a news regarding the possibility of this Japanese company in using new variation on their Tundra engine options which are Cummins engine diesel as well as hybrid unit power. But, the very first time Toyota give proposal about dieselized on Tundra is in 2006. If the plan successful at that time, it’s most likely that the Tundra will become the revival of diesel era for pickup full-size sector in 2009. However, when the crisis in 2008 happened, it forced Toyota to delay the plan for diesel version. Many car lovers hope that resources which owned by Truett is dependable and we might see diesel variant for Tundra after so many years. The diesel variation will also be offered for another pickup from Japan.
