According to Popular mechanics, Toyota will unveil three new models in November at SEMA Show.

The first model will be the 2009 Corolla, unveiled in both sedan and sport hatch versions. The sport coupe/hatchback is a new model in the Corolla range.

The next will be a concept car, the Heavy-Duty Dually Concept. It is possible for Toyota to choose a smaller 4.5 liter V8 diesel engine to power the concept. Or they will simply install Hino’s smallest engine—a “little” 5.0-liter, inline 4-cylinder that makes 175 hp and 376 lb.-ft. of torque.

And the last will be the FJ Cruiser Convertible. It will be Toyota’s first removable hardtop version of the FJ Cruiser. It is very possible to be a prototype and not a production version.

I would prefer to see Toyota use the 4.2L 1HD-FTE from the Land Cruiser. That would be a SOHC 24V intercooled inline 6 turbo-diesel putting out 196hp and 317lb-ft. It’s a lovely engine. It’s smooth and clean and doesn’t have the clattery sound many diesel bashers hate. Above all else it has SIX cylinders. No matter how large or how torquey, Toyota could NEVER sell a 4-cylinder Tundra in the US.
