4WD Utes

Ford Ranger
1
  • Standardised safety a plus for consumers; New media screen considerably better than before; Updated app connectivity; Still great to drive; Strong drivetrain

  • Standardised safety kit means price is up; Not the greatest payload in this spec; Engine can be gruff at times

Volkswagen Amarok
  • Ride both unladen and laden is excellent; Cabin design and finish is the best in the segment by some margin; Incredible value at this price point

  • No second row airbags or active safety kit available; Rear-view camera doesn't have the clarity we'd like; Second row seating doesn't offer as much legroom as the segment leaders

Holden Colorado
  • Looks much more modern from the front; ride and overall dynamics vastly improved; dashboard feels more upmarket than entry-level would suggest

  • At $45k drive-away, the value equation is harder to justify; cabin updates took away some storage; looks very basic from the back.

Toyota HiLux
  • TRD bits certainly add some flair to the HiLux flagship; Good engine refinement; Smart transmission; Decent space in the cabin; Better settled when loaded up; Great LED headlights

  • Still lacks latest safety kit that Ranger has; No Apple CarPlay or Android Auto; Missing some interior touches from TRD; Heavy steering at low speeds; Harsh ride

Mitsubishi Triton
  • Engine and gearbox remain smooth and efficient; Front seats are excellent and offer long haul comfort; Extra tray capacity is a win for tradies

  • Second row is essentially useless for adults; Infotainment and electric aids are all very basic and old tech; Cabin is much less refined and insulated than higher grade models
