When Toyota released the new Tacoma a while ago everyone was left wondering why they decided to skip on a diesel offering. Some of their competitors such as GM and quite soon Nissan are or will be offering a diesel which despite the current low fuel prices still is preferred by many. This is because a diesel offers more torque at lower RPM and it is usually better suited for off-road or towing. Even though they said a while ago that a 2017 Toyota Tacoma Diesel is likely not going to happen, some strong suggestions point otherwise.
