Unfortunately you're limited to an obscure diesel version of the Chevy S-10, a Mazda, a Volkswagen, or a Datsun. The problem with these vehicles is that most of them are pretty tired and worn out now. Toyota used to (and may still) sell great compact diesel Hilux pickups in Canada and some folks have had some luck either importing them or buying a wreck and transplanting the engine into a compact gasser here. I have a 1991 Toyota compact pickup (4 cylinder, 5 speed, 4WD) and they're tough as nails. Even though its a 1/4 ton I've hauled 1000lbs with it on more than one occasion. In 150,000+ miles I've not done more than change the oil/regular maintenance. Check this forum out for more info:thinking about a small diesel truck for work. i know they built some in the 80s but dont know much about them. anyone with knowledge, comments, or sites? thanks in advance.

Maybe someday if we are really good.:hehe:Shame you guys don't get any of the European-spec diesel trucks. We have loads of them over here, Hiluxes, Rangers, L-200s etc..

The new ones have 3-litre Diesels, i believe the last gen Rangers were 2.4-litre.
