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.

A Tacoma with an LS6 V8?

Here’s a new one – Tundra Racing is building out a fast-as-hell Toyota Tacoma…with a Corvette motor.

That’s right – they’ve shoehorned a specially tuned 460 horsepower LS6 into an 05′ Tacoma Regular Cab 2wd. Does that sound like a fast truck or what?

How about a very fast truck.
