LCACs are the equivalent of the old LCTs and LSTs, not LCIs.

Also, why can't the crew ride to the beach in their vehicle?

— BAE Systems is already in the process of assembling its first six of
16 prototype Amphibious Combat Vehicles for the US Marine Corps, and
SAIC plans to begin integration work on its vehicles this summer.
Marine Corps awarded contracts to both companies worth a little over
$100 million each in November last year to build engineering and
manufacturing development vehicles for its next-generation ACVs, which
will ferry troops ashore and into battle.
BAE Systems and SAIC are
expected to build 16 eight-wheeled vehicles over 2016 to be tested by
the service in 2017. The Marine Corps will then pick a winner in 2018 to
deliver 204 vehicles by 2020.
