What's the best ute for 4WD and beach driving?

Asked by Paul

I am looking for a turbo diesel, dual cab with tray, specifically Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi Triton, Mazda Bravo, Toyota Hilux and Holden Rodeo. I will be doing a lot of 4WD and beach driving. I would like your opinion. I am looking to spend about $18,000.

The trade holds the Hilux up as the best of those you've mentioned. The Toyota turbo diesel is easily the best, but the downside is that you'll have to pay up to $3000 more to get behind the wheel of a Hilux. The others are OK, and all rated equally, but there are plenty of reports from the trade about problems with the Nissan turbo diesel so I'd recommend caution. If you were to consider a Navara, make sure it has an extended warranty for peace of mind.
