Toyota has confirmed that its new all-new diesel pickup will include an all-wheel drive system for the very first time.
While the truck has a 6.2-liter diesel engine, the automaker says it has now developed a 3.0-liter gasoline engine for the truck’s electric motors.
The engine is not yet official and will be subject to a certification test, but Toyota says it will be able to provide full power output up to 300 hp, while still producing over 500 lb-ft of torque.
The truck’s battery pack will also be able deliver over 1,000 miles per charge.
The all-electronic design will allow the truck to be used for daily driving as well as long trips.
It will also allow the all-steel structure to withstand the rigors of highway driving.
The truck will be powered by a six-speed manual transmission that will be equipped with a six position ABS system, as well a four-wheel steering system that will have a paddle shifter for driving.
The powertrain will also include a power steering system with four different ratios, including an automatic and a manual.
While Toyota has not said how much the truck will cost, the truck is expected to be in the ballpark of $22,500 when it goes on sale.
The price is likely to be slightly lower for the higher-end model, the Y, as the Y is expected have more options.
The Y is still in the design phase, and the company has not revealed pricing for its diesel-powered version.
