caterpillar diesel?

might of been puffing smoke but a guy from my work has been runnin his mouth about how the new toyota is trying to join forces with caterpillar to create a diesel tundra? sorry probably wrong section but i got a 6.0 and i figured ide throw it here.

u guys heard about this??? and if so what do u know... expected release if any and horsepower or torque numbers. if this is true we might have another possible competitor for the big 3 which means improvements for all of us

Theres a link(2nd one).. from a couple quick searches looks they may be going with HINO or something else in house...

Looking at this link it sounds like a CAT, but its short for Diesel Clean Advanced Technology

Toyota in Business ? Toyota D-CAT Diesel Clean Advanced Technology

Catepillar has left the road going diesel business to concentrate on its core heavy euipment business. They decided that the new and upcoming emissions requirements made the road going engine business too much of a PITA to bother with.

This being the case I am sure Catepillar is not partnerring with anyone to make a diesel motor for a pickup.

That article's dated, Nov 2007. They threw a 24K 5th-wheel in the bed for that showing. If that Hino can actually put out the 300/600 power claim on a 5-sp manual, I doubt it would be pulling anything that heavy.

I'm not putting much stock in it, I don't see the commercial sector giving up their Ford/Chevy/Dodge to buy a Tundra.

09 IIRC was the last year IIRC, all you can get now is a POS cummins in a big truck, a detroit, or international has a inhouse motor (but id never own one).
