yup, gas, i cant think of a single diesel compact/midsized truck or suv sold in the us... Alot of tacoma entueusiasts in the us would kill for a diesel hilux to come to the states. The torque of a turbo diesel, plus the hilux (i believe) has a solid front axle. It would be the best stock off roader you could buy.
btw your links didnt imbed, but ijust coppied the links and watched em. i think my taco could get close...but i wouldnt want to find out how close haha. the tacoma commercials from the states are pretty funny.
