Is it possible to buy a new 4WD with a manual handbrake?

Is it possible to buy a new 4WD type car with a manual handbrake? if so what model would this be?

As electronics take over cars and 4x4 vehicles the humble cable-operated handbrake has largely gone the way of the carburettor and points ignition systems. The easiest way to find a manually operated handbrake today is in dual-cab utes and their wagon-style siblings, like the Holden Colorado, Toyota HiLux and Prado, Ford Ranger and Everest, Mitsubishi Triton, Isuzu D-Max and MU-X, and Nissan Navara.
