    Nice option for customers with deep pockets.
    Diesels are tailor-made for hauling, except the bulk of truck buyers don't 'need' a truck, but want to own one.

What I want is my same small truck to go to Home Depot, get fire wood, and go deer hunting but get 30-40mpg. I don't have a horse trailer to pull. Everyone else makes the BIG DIESEL PICKUP. Why doesn't Toyota just sell the Hilux with the 2.5 liter turbo diesel that the rest of the world gets. Are they prohibited by the EPA or some other worthless government agency?
