You know how it is. You step out of the office for a transcontinetal journey to prove the worth of diesel propulsion to a skeptical– not to say distracted, disinterested and dismissive– nation and bang!

Automotive News [sub] reports that ToMoCo NA Prez Jim Lentz confirmed that the development of a diesel-engine variant of the Tundra has been deep-sixed. While a diesel option has “not been canceled outright,” it’s been cancelled forthwith. (See how that works?) AN says “That’s a big step back from Toyota telling dealers at the National Automobile Dealers Association convention last year that a diesel would arrive by 2010 or 2011.”
