    Any news or insights about the diesel Tacoma? I currently own a 09 off road. I drive far for work daily. Gas kills my fucket. If Tacoma won’t release diesel I will switch to ford ranger

    Toyota has said before that it will never happen.

    In my opinion, there's no benefit when looking for fuel economy when you have to pay a higher purchase cost ($6000 on top of a V6 Colorado), higher price for fuel (in CA), higher maintenance costs and higher repair costs.

    Toyota is looking more towards hybrid technology than diesel. I strongly doubt they’ll ever have a diesel available in the US for the Tacoma.

    Then why did they make diesel hilux. Hilux is pretty much Tacoma

    Different countries so different infrastructure. Gasoline is also way more expensive in those areas so the majority of vehicles are diesel, not just the Hilux.

    Whipper snapper is correct. That’s in the Dominican Republic. Diesel pickups everywhere

    Why do you buy premium in an engine built for 87 octane? You seriously get no benefits.

    Him and I both have superchargers. 91 is a must.
