Speaking to Edmunds, Toyota corporate manager Rick LoFaso said "the diesel engine is something that is on our evaluation list", adding that the company could team up with Cummins for an oil-burner, just like Nissan did for the 2015 Titan.
"I think Cummins would bring instant name recognition and obviously they are a leader in diesel engine technology. That is not the first time we would have to tie up with somebody else," LoFaso told told our source.
No word on when such a decision would be make, but the company representative hinted that a hybrid truck is also under evaluation.
Earlier this year, Ram has launched the first diesel full-size pickup truck, while Nissan has announced that the 2015 Titan will be offered with a turbocharged diesel V8 developed by Cummins. General Motors also confirmed plans to introduce diesel units on the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-size trucks.
