Toyota To Get Cummins Diesel?

First it was Ward’s Auto and AutoGuide that reported Toyota would be getting a Cummins motor, and now Car & Driver is saying the same:

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.

While there are still some reasons to wonder what Toyota is planning here (which I’ll get into below), odds are good the 2016 Tundra is a gettin’ a Cummins Diesel.

2015 F150 Wins Best Buy Award Before It’s Even Been Sold

  • 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?
