If Toyota goes ahead with production on something like that, no amount of taxpayer money would save the Big 3.........I would dump my Tacoma in a heartbeat and get one of those.......:)

It would not matter, I paid $26K for my Tacoma back in 1996, I checked KBB yesterday and it is worth $6K......83K miles...13 years.....

My father in-law has a 1995 Ford F-150, 34K miles, its worth $1500......now that is sad....

So, yes i would pay it, it would be the last truck I would ever own, bet it would out live me......:dancing:

Gotta keep in mind Toyota is a part of Hino or the opposite. That truck may have a hino 6 cylinder engine which is 7.2 litre displacement or something like that.

The truck is ugly as sin thou I wouldn't buy one.

Everybody says that this truck is ugly. I think that all of the new truck body styles look like butt/

If you look at it real closely, in my opinion, The whole body looks like a dodge ram. Look at the doors, and the handles, heck the cab is even as long as the mega cab from dodge. Look at the bed with the fenders, just like a dodge, heck even the headlights and fog lights! The mirrors, look like what the new ford trucks have. Those lights on top, Uh, I have no clue, very eye catching though.

Wow. I would buy one in a hearbeat if they come out for production. I have a tundra now and its an awosme truck so you couldnt go wrong with this truck. I want one.

I would buy one in a second as well. Every American made vehicle I have ever owned has been junk. I would love to have more options other then the "big three" when it comes to my work trucks.

2 things...

1...toyota owns hino and it would have a toyota diesel engine. which incedently toyota makes a killer diesel!

2....toyota has already said that due to the economy this is on the shelf indefinitley, sorry.

I have never seen a f150 as described for that cheap where I live.

More like a toy then a work truck.

Maybe a 2wd, no option, radiator pushed back to the firewall, truck. Never that cheap otherwise.

The massive 8.0L 488 cubic inc Hino Jo8E-TB turbo diesel in this Tundra is no Cummins or Duramax or Powerstroke. It was designed for delivery trucks that haul a GVWR of 35,000lbs and has a power rating of 305hp and 610lb-ft torque without any modifications, which would be more than enough grunt to move the Tundra chassis along with a 20,000lb trailer.

This 1 ton diesel the Jo8E-TB uses common rail fuel injection, a variable geometry turbo, eletronically controlled intake throttle, and twin EGR coolers, Unlike the stock delivery truck application this one gets to breath through a factory 4.5" mandrel bent exhaust.


The Tundra 1 Ton does share many Dodge body lines, and Ford Mirrors, the Stealth matte paint scheme is very functional for a work truck application very durable, little maintenance, no waxing.


This 1 Ton would be everything that Ford, GM and Dodge have been unable to bring to market for 35 years. On paper this 1 Ton Toyota Truck is King

King of what? The land of maxed out GVWR before putting in a 12 pack of beer? What does an 8.0L inline 6 weigh? 1800 lbs? Seriously, the Cummins is 1200ish.

"King" in sales
It would take a huge portion of the big three's sales; regardless of the weight of the Hino engine. Honestly Look at how many guys come close or run overloaded already:dizzy:

Surly a Toyota 4500 would be next

IA_James
01-04-2009, 10:08 PM
If they're going to run that engine, they should just go straight to the 4500/5500 market.

I don't have anything really against the Toyota's but would not spend extra for their products and the fact I think it's ugly. I would welcome the competition in the 4500 size as that would be good for us(as in better trucks from the manufactures).

Your right, if your looking for anything bigger then a 1/2 ton pickup your forced to by the big threes crap they have peddled on us for years. IMO GM has been the worst offender, it almost pains me to say it growing up with gm through the years. Case in point 99' Chevy dually. When it was three years ond with 18k miles on it the paint started chipping off the doors, hood, etc. When I was at the GM garage getting some work done to it I asked to see if there was anything they could do about my paint issues. I went back the next day to pick the truck up and reminded them about the paint. They said they looked into and brought me out a sheet of paper. It was a estimate for $700 to repaint my truck. When I mentioned the warranty. They stated that GM said that the only way they would cover paint is if the truck rusted all the way through it would be covered, otherwise its cosmetic. This year I smelled antifreeze so I took it to the dealer because last time it was an intake maniford gasket that cost me an engine. Sure enough it was so I thought it might be under warranty. Of course not, they said it been 4 years since the last one and you got 25,000 miles out of it. The joys of GM. I could go on forever.
If that one ton Toyota ever made a debut, it would be just what the market is craving.

Looks like something out of Star Wars. Ready my ship. . . .

Anyways, I do hear that Toyota is making the better trucks than "the big 3". If I ever purchased it, It's Cab 'n Chassis.

Why would you buy a 1 ton truck from a car company that has never produced a 3/4 or a 1 ton truck before? Wouldn't you want them to work everything out for a few years before you spend 40+k on one? And yea, its old news and its ugly.

They actually made a 1 ton toyota truck back in the day. There are a few still in exhistance mostly U-Haul trucks and small campers. I think the rear end looks ugly but I think its the wheels that make the truck. I guess :dizzy:.

Toyota would be going for the jugular their would be no point in producing a 3/4 ton truck. The Tundra has already leveled the playing field.

I have always said the In-line diesel is the way to go. Don't think it's a coincident that Toyota choose a 8.0L in-line Hino diesel that makes Cummins piss in their pants:laugh: Hino & Toyota that could be a 2 million mile diesel truck.

Here's the thing look at the detriot auto show the big three are doing nothing different. All the fuel effiecent cars & trucks or cool cars & trucks are going overseas first, then come here in 2010 or later. GM diesel technology continues to be a big seller oversea's but we are deprived of many of those models some we will never see out coastline. Detroit Autoshow is total BS this year more than ever

BYD car company has been the "BUZZ" in hybrid electric cars for some time their a Chinease company make all their parts on site zero outsourcing or vendors. They have a good hybrid equal to the Toyotas or Honds model for Under 20,000.

It's really sad becuase the BYD hybrid car introduction will be perfect as our economy bottoms out.

Okay....maybe you will read this, this time

Toyota is not making a 1ton tundra any day soon! mute point. they have had their first year of losses in some 30 years.

this truck was made for sema not to actually build. if they did build one, toyota stated it would not be with the 8.0 out of a hino. they would use one of their smaller diesels.

just because you dont see something in the US doesnt mean its not made. toyota makes large trucks everywhere else.

\However if made it would put the big three on notice.

Yea, but not pickups. I would need them trucks to be out for while for me to consider them. Even so, i wouldnt go with one. lol

Toyota(Hino) does and has made big trucks I love toyota and that truck but I wouldnt buy a pickup with that much nit. I would get it as a cab n chassis and put a 10 ft dump or flatbed dump etc.

I currently drive a tacoma , when toyota sells a diesel in US, no matter the size, the taco is getting sold!!!

Someone give me the Tundra sales numbers. Why has Toyota not put out a serious 3/4 ton truck with a diesel? I am also not buying any superior truck thing, if a Toyota works for you great.
