On vacation in Patagonia Chile

We arrived yesterday in Punta Arenas Chile and had a car reserved for rental. The guy behind the counter said IF You're going into Torres del Paine National Park you should have a truck. HE UPGRADED me to a Hilux 4x4 Diesel! I've been driving this truck now for 2 days and I've fallen in love! It's not a hot rod, but man, is it good on gas! It's a 6 sped Diesel crew cab with a short box-- a simple basic truck- it even has a roll cage! Why doesn't Toyota sell these in N. America?
