Toyota is going full speed ahead in NASCAR so it is just a matter of time until they enter the heavy duty and diesel truck market. It should be good for competition!

Toyota reportedly had a heavy duty/diesel program running parallel with the development of the new (current) Tundra but pulled the plug on it.

This is an interesting concept truck, but that's all it is - a concept truck handbuilt by TRD for the SEMA show.

I'd love to see Toyota step into the heavy duty/diesel market. We, the consumers, would benefit from the competition, whatever we choose to purchase. I'm not holding my breath, though.

First Toyota would have to make it UN UGLY! That is got to be the worst looking trucks in the SEMA show. Second they will have to overcome the T100 fiasco. Don't get me wrong, they build some nice vehicles, but so far I have not seen them able to produce a truck as capable as what the big three can for less money.

Thing is Toyota builds some fine vehicles and I am sure they would do well in the LT truck market with a true 1 ton dually. The Tundra is one heck of a smaller truck (1/2 ton).

It seems to take some foreign competition to get the big three on the stick and design something worth while.

In 2002 Ford showed the concept of the Tonka truck and we have yet to see it, so maybe Toyota will move a bit faster.

hard to tell from a picture, but that hardley even looks like a 6.5' bed.

We'll have to wait and see. Now if Honda would just get into the truck market!

Honda would probably have the first 6000 RPM diesel....

I think that thing looks pretty cool, except for the 3' stick shift. I used to drive a 475 horsepower Peterbuilt, and it didnt have a stick shift that big!

That might be the one, two punch to take one of the big 3 off the podeum

That's been posted around on the pickup forums...

Rather than cram a Hino motor under a Tundra, I would have rathered they put a pickup bed and 4x4 option on the Hino...

Also, the hugely heavy Hino motor would have to do better than 300 hp and 600 ft/lbs to be competitive.

Anyway, as posted above this is basically a concept car/mock up, and I suspect any heavy duty truck that might go into production would be very different.

That Toyota CrewMax is more than a concept, I suspect it'll be out 2009 or 2010 the latest. Ed.S

I am not buying into the idea the toy is going to step it up and make a real truck , there is now way they are going to be on par with the big 3 in the specs or real world for several years ! And even when they do I will do every thing in my power to support a US based company , to many of our dollars go overseas ! I dont care where in the US the tunda is made.... The big three need to bring back manufacturing and parts to the USA or we all will be out of money very soon!
