What is the best ute for towing capabilities?

Asked by Alexander

I am after a used ute that can tow 3.5 tonne in the $15k price range. I currently have a 2009 petrol 4x2 Holden Colorado that can only tow 2.4 tonnes, looking for something with better towing capabilities. Do you have any recommendations?

The 3.5-tonne towing capacity is a relatively recent thing, Alexander. I’m not sure there would be much choice within your price-range that will do the specific job you’re asking of it. Look at something like a 2012 to 2014 base-model Ford Ranger 4X4 with the bigger, 3.2-litre engine. That has the towing capacity you’re after at around the price you’re looking at. Be prepared for it to have covered plenty of kilometres at that price, though.
