Next Generation 2016 Tundra To Share 5.0L Turbodiesel with Nissan

 reports that the next 2016 Toyota Tundra will receive the Cummins V8 turbodiesel for 2016, the same that will be powering the Nissan Titan pickup, due for While Toyota had been on a diesel engine with Toyota’s heavy-truck division, the crash of 2008 shelved the With new found interest in diesels and the new Ram EcoDiesel leading the way favorable reviews and excellent economy, Toyota looks to quickly into the light truck market.

The new Cummins V8 turbodiesel is confirmed to produce 300 hp and 500 ft lb of in the Titan, so we can expect similar for the Toyota. Not only does engine produce more than any gas motor in a light pickup, but even tops the Ram 420 ft lb, making it the  most   torquiest engine offered in any duty pickup. This is a a move for Toyota and Nissan, helping to bridge the gap between half-ton pickups and Ford, GM and heavier duty 3/4-ton an area where neither currently offer a product.

Both Toyota and Nissan like a larger chunk of the light truck market, last year moved six million trucks through lots. For 2025, CAFE push for a fleet target of MPG, making a fuel diesel a necessity for Toyota. The is thought to a stop-gap for Toyota, as reconsider their in-house engine produced by their arm, Hino Trucks.

The economic crash was truly a changer for light duty engines, and we are just now beginning to see the

Toyota had been working Hino Trucks to produce a engine for the Tundra, and had shown of a 1-ton dually version of then-new Tundra at the 2007 show. Plans for a heavy Tundra, along with the diesel engine were after the 2008 crash.

enough, the Cummins 5.0L V8 originally destined for the Dodge and this will be the first a Cummins motor has been in a pickup outside of the Ram. The was developed while Dodge and were planning to share a truck chassis, but the ’09 bankruptcy those plans, and Dodge was with the estimated fuel of the 5.0L Cummins. Nissan the move to keep the engine.

Fiat ownership, who also VM Motori, the Ram 1500 received the V6 turbodiesel  instead of the Cummins 5.0L V8 VM Motori 3.0L V6 turbodiesel was destined for another home, GM. The V6 turbodiesel was originally planned for use in the Cadillac CTS, though GM shelved its light diesel during its ’09 bankruptcy. Fiat and GM were partners on VM Motori until 2013, when Fiat GM would sell the remaining

And that wasn’t the only GM shelved. Some may remember the 4.5L V8 turbodiesel GM had been for its light trucks. GM was an early for a modern light duty but it too was a victim of the ’09 bankruptcy. With new from Ram, Toyota, and it’s thought GM may dust off the 4.5L turbodiesel and bring it to

Sources say Ford is working on a duty diesel as well, for a 2018 arrival. With new from its competitors, it will be to see if Ford can join the crowd in

2015 looks to be an interesting in light duty pickups. We see how the new 3.0L EcoDiesel fairs in truck use, and both and Nissan should be rolling out examples. We can only hope the puts GM and Ford to work their light diesels

As long as the price on the diesel remains reasonable, light should do well in half-ton Diesels offer superior economy to their gas counterparts in all conditions, especially under The Ram EcoDiesel is showing incredible a pickup) real world economy numbers, with our own Dykes seeing 29 mpg highway, and mpg average in his review of the 2013 Ram This, along with torque figures to their gas would give the average a very decent towing for those who aren’t ready to up to the heavy duty trucks, higher prices and substantially heavy duty diesels.

a little anecdotal story the Tundra in the lead photo. It is by my friend, and is built to be a mobile shop for a variety of traveling From disaster insurance to contracted construction work, to at Pikes Peak and other It’s a work truck, and through, with tool and 110v power to run electric tools off of. One of the major reasons he go with a heavier duty truck is simply because of the “Man, this thing has to all the time while I work. likes to listen to the CLACKCLACKCLACK of a truck. I just needed quiet, dependable, and with a bed. I don’t need a big And it works admirably, I spent 2,000 miles in it during our run at Pikes Peak with Ready Motorsports. The only fault with the truck was its

fuel economy with the V8: with the bed cap and a fair payload it less than 13.5 mpg on the with speeds averaging 70

Had a light duty option offered earlier, it would fit this role perfect. The duty work truck a good diesel option.
