Dual-cab utes can cost more than some luxury cars, but there are budget-friendly options if you can’t afford one of the well known makes. Enter the Mahindra Pik-Up, an Indian-made ute with a wallet-friendly starting price.
The Mahindra Pik-Up starts from just $18,990 driveaway, making it one of the most affordable utes on the market, and the cheapest diesel workhorse you can choose when buying new.
It comes only with a five-speed manual gearbox, but off-roaders will appreciate its BorgWarner transfer case with high and low range four-wheel drive, which can be operated on the move. It also has a diff-lock to help keep you moving “over sand, snow, muck, ice, rocks or whatever”, according to the brand.
