4WD Utes

Ford Ranger
1
  • Impressive off-road ride and handling; Feels totally different to a regular Ranger; Looks tough as nuts in person; Unique design, steering wheel and seats

  • New diesel engine lacks punch; Interior materials don't quite match the price tag; Less than 700kg payload and 2500kg braked towing capacity

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
  • Excellent off-road ability; Engine offers plenty of punch in and around the city; Capable of confidently towing large loads

  • Requires servicing every six months; Ancient infotainment and driver technology; Capped at 3200kg towing capacity with the automatic

Mitsubishi Triton
  • Value for money; Cabin refinement; Infotainment; Super-Select II 4WD system

  • Somewhat unsettled ride; no 3.5t towing ceiling; Narrow tray; Glamorous as baggy cargo shorts
