Of course they would say no. Perhaps it's nothing. Or maybe something

Toyota hasn't done any diesels here yet, I doubt they'll bring one now. A hybrid is more likely if they're looking for alternate full ICE powertrains.

When asked:
Toyota denies plans to bring this or other diesel engines to the U.S. market, saying “diesel is presently not part of our strategy for North America. We are still bullish on conventional engines, hybrids and fuel cell technology.”

Don't see the update. Anyhow...here is what appears to be the correction:

https://jalopnik.com/toyota-teases-a...ner-1832452268

Could you just imagine what the lifespan of a diesel 4Runner would be? Heck, the gas versions typically last 300K or more. Local Toyota dealerships, here, sell them used, right out the door, (with a dealer-warranty) with 175K on them.

So why would Toyota release such an image? Even by error. How does Toyota get the RPM rating wrong. ?

I think you need to Tweet ToyotaCA about all these shortcomings, including the divider switch. Maybe they`ll add you on to the focus groups on design and PR rollout. Cant hurt to have a another opinion on stuff

I take it that the U.S. Army uses MPH all over the world for their vehicles?
