2018 Toyota Tundra Diesel: What to Expect?


Rumor had it that there would be the new 2018 Toyota Tundra diesel and it turned out that the redesign version is happening. Yes, it is confirmed that the redesign project will be happening soon with Toyota launching their diesel version for the 2018 model. Sounds like a good idea?


The idea about 2018 Toyota Tundra diesel is basically the following up of the previous ideas and models, preferably from the 2015 and also 2016 that have never been made real and true – well, until today. It is a good thing that Tundra will be coming with some of the good updates but it would be even better if the diesel variant will be available. After all, if you want to have a pickup truck, you definitely want something that isn’t only solid and sturdy but has all the right power punch and everything, right?

The Favorite Vehicle

It is not hard to see why Tundra is liked by everyone. After all, it offers great flexibility and versatility. It is good when you want to enjoy a me-time alone driving and yet it is also great when you want to have a trip with your family. It is pretty handy and easy to control when you are driving alone but it has a better punch and functionality when you are traveling with your family and you have to accommodate a lot of cargo. The new 2018 Toyota Tundra diesel is offering even a more enjoyable outcome – not too many mpg and yet more power and strength. So, will people like the idea of having the diesel for the new pickup truck? It is highly likely.

Diesel Engine

There are two options of the engine. The first is V8 i-FORCE DOHC 4.6 liter engine delivering 310 hp of power, paired with auto six speed transmission. The second one will be diesel V8 i-FORCE DOHC 5.7 liter engine, delivering 381 hp of power with similar transmission plan.

 Price and Release Date

There hasn’t been any official confirmation about the availability of the pickup truck for sale but rumor has it that it should be ready on the first quarter of 2017 – if everything goes as planned. For the price tag, Tundra diesel will be sold at around $25,000 for the SR model. For the Limited, it will be around $38,000 and around $46,000 for the Platinum.
