Australia doesn’t love utes – it loves pick-up trucks

I call a ute a ute. I don’t call it a pick-up. I don’t call it a truck (although I like the macho nature of the word truck). It’s clear, however, that the word 'ute' is being phased out of car company marketing chit-chat, and it could well be that buyers are following the same path...
