We were stopped at a truck stop in Gorman, CA (coming home from Disneyland) and a Toyota factory rep stopped by to ask us about our set up.
(This is where my signature pic was taken)
This guy was doing some R&D for Toyota and was on his way up north.
I asked him about Toyota's plans for a 3/4 ton deisel and he said that Toyota had plans for one but had shelved it due to the poor economy.
He mentioned that they were looking at using an Isuzu platform since that motor has performed very well for them.
He didn't see them producing a 3/4 ton in the forseeable future.
It seems to me that it would be a very had market to compete in.
I still think that Ford has the best looking 3/4 ton but that's just my opinion.
I was a Tonka Truck kid.
