I would not want to be so close to the limits, but that is just me. You don't need a diesel or a 3/4 ton pickup to pull that trailer, but I would hesitate to use a SUV designed mainly for passengers.


Most half ton pickups now days are not rated for much more than 1300 pounds. People seem to be happy with their VW's and Porsche. The Lexus seems like the same type of vehicle only a gasser.
