Asked by Jack
I am looking to buy a dual-cab ute soon and am not sure which way to look. I will be using it for work for the next five years and on weekends for pleasure. I like the Toyota HiLux, which is old and soon to be replaced but a proven performer, against Ford Ranger and Mazda BT-50, both newer models. Mitsubishi's Triton has only a four-star safety rating but due to its price is it still worth looking at. I got the impression the new Nissan Navara is not as impressive as it could have been. Is it worth waiting for other new models to come on to the market?
Answered by CarsGuide7 Oct 2014
The new HiLux and Triton will arrive in the first half of next year. If you're planning a five-year run for your new ute it would be worth waiting to see how the pecking order changes once they're in place.
