2015 Dodge Cummins. Tow anything over any pass into or out of any take out or put in. And still get 20 miles to the gallon.

I have owned 3 Landcruisers and I will always have them, my last one had 250,000 miles and I still sold it for a good price.

I would not recommend a Tundra at all. Look up all the Truck articles and they always rate the Tundra's a distant 4th out of the pickup brands. They are over priced, and have horrible gas milage and they are not near as nice as the American trucks. The Ford F-150 is by far the nicest truck out there, that Eco Boost engine is incredible. They feel nicer than a BMW too. If I was buying a truck there is no doubt I would get an F-150 4 door eco boost.
The newer Tundra is a pig but the older has the same engine and transmission as your LX.

The ecoboost is a nice engine and packs a punch. I would gladly drive a new F150 if they weren't so $$.

This is true, I am a huge Toyota fan and I have always had them but if I were looking at a newer model truck I would go Ford. I wanted to buy a ford before I got my newest land cruiser (2000 model) but I didn't want to drop that kind of cash! I dont mind spending a little more in gas knowing that I paid so much less for the car up front.

There is also the Nissan Titan with a brand new design Cummins V8 diesel coming out too. I think its butt ugly (especially compared to the original Titan which I think is one of the best looking full sized trucks) with its huge grill and headlights, but its still an interesting option.

I'm very new to raft ownership(I've been a whitewater guy since I was kid, but just bought my first multi-day raft). I'll be hauling mine with my 99' Ford F-250 with the 7.3 Powerstroke diesel. It is complete overkill for towing a raft, but it does pretty well mileage wise and hardly feels the trailer behind you. I haven't decided yet whether I'll be towing or just carrying everything in the back, but both will work.

Why can't we get this here: LINK> 2016 Toyota Hilux

"The larger 2.8 litre engine is rated at 177 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 450 Nm of torque at 1,600-2,400 rpm (reportedly 420 Nm with a manual), while the 2.4 litre does 160 horsepower and 400 Nm. However different tunes may be used in different countries and/or different models.

The new GD engines will feature common rail direct injection at 1,350 bar and a variable geometry turbocharger. They will be mated to a six-speed / automatic gearbox."
