Default Is the Toyota Tundra offered with a diesel engine?

If so, what are the options and years?

No, but there are plans to have a diesel version produced in 2016.

The tundra is not offered with a diesel. BUT I'm sure if you had the money you could get a Hino diesel stuck into a Tundra. I don't think it's ever been done before, but they are both Toyota products.

Currently no, they only come in the 2nd generation 2007-current with either a 4.0L V6, 4.7L V8 until 2009, 4.6L V8, or the 5.7L V8. They are talking about releasing a diesel in the next update in 2016-2017 time-frame but we really don't know for certain. Due to diesel emissions standards changing in 2016-2017 I think Toyota is just playing it safe and not having to change a new design due to emissions changes so they're holding off.































Really wish they would release a diesel, but only if they can get away without needing the DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid) and horrible emissions controls that chokes the engine down to being completely pointless in owning one like they have done with GM, Ford, and Dodge.
