A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. The Tundra gets an EPA-estimated 15/19 mpg city/highway, which is below average for the class."

Thanks in advance,

I believe hundreds of thousands of people drive Tundras...

Does it haul well? Sure, depending on what your hauling

Will it tow a 7500lb trailer? Well, a Fiat 500 can tow a 7500lb trailer...but can it do it safely?

I suggest the 5.7l V8 if your going to tow something that heavy. 4.6l is the base V8 engine and not designed for that kind of weight.

designed to fall between the half ton and three-quarter ton and i think I recall its payload is in the 1400 range.
If the payload is 1400 that's a pretty piss-poor attempt at falling between a 1/2 ton and 3/4. That's on the low end of 1/2 ton payloads. Putting a heavy diesel engine and not beefing anything else up just makes for a crappy tow vehicle for travel trailers.

Just sayin'.

Edit: I looked it up. Here is the Nissan XD payload by trim level:

S: 4x2, 2,091 pounds; 4x4, 2,004 pounds
SV: 4x2, 1,924 pounds; 4x4, 1,838 pounds
PRO-4X: 4x4 only, 1,733 pounds
SL: 4x2, 1,674 pounds; 4x4, 1,588 pounds
Platinum Reserve: 4x2, 1,676 pounds; 4x4, 1,470 pounds

Anything PRO-4X or less could be capable. Top level trims don't have enough payload.
