Quo Vadis Toyota?

For a work truck, the Tundra’s reliability and low maintenance costs are crucial. That’s why I still recommend the Toyota to my contractor buyers. That said, the lack of engine upgrades is a sad testament that Toyota is one or so generation behind in design in several segments. Toyota has several diesel engines in various sizes available all over the world and why they don’t bring one to North America is a mystery. For example the 1HD-FTE 4.2 L straight-6 24 valve turbocharged and intercooled diesel has 202 hp, 317 lb-ft of torque and would be a decent base work truck diesel for the Tundra. Toyota will lose hard earned sales to the new GM trucks for sure.
