Come 2016, the option list for the next-gen Tundra will include a Cummins 5.0-liter turbo diesel. That oil-burner is predicted to be rated at 300+ horsepower and, in true diesel form, more than 500 lb-ft of torque. This should make Nissan product planners sit up and mumble “rats,” as this appears to be the same engine being developed for the redesigned Titan, which debuts next year.

KBB.com decided to give the 2015 F-150 – which only recently began actual production – a “Best Buy” award. Considering that:
- The truck isn’t available for sale yet, which means the only trucks KBB could have tested were pre-production units (which are often built by hand), and
- The EPA fuel economy figures haven’t been released yet, thus we have no idea how fuel efficient the truck really is
This award seems a bit premature, doesn’t it?
