Best EOFY 2020 deals: Dual-cab utes

The Toyota HiLux continues to dominate the Australian sales charts, but expect a surge in interest as the EOFY approaches.

Happiness is a new ute that comes with a wad of savings.

Despite what's happening outside, there are still great deals going on in car dealerships around the country and, as a ute-loving nation, it would be remiss of us to ignore the offers available today.

Dealers are keen to sell and carmakers are helping with discounts, putting buyers literally in the driving seat. It doesn't matter if you want it for work or play or the family – or all three – here's some of the best dual-cab ute offers available now in the lead up to the end of the financial year.

Ford Ranger

The latest deals look likely to continue the Ranger's dominance.

Ford's Ranger remains a popular choice for buyers, as evidenced by its number two position on the sales chart, and the latest deals look likely to continue the nameplate's dominance.

Of interest this month is the Ranger XL Hi-Rider 4x2 dual-cab ute. Higher ground clearance lets it work in places that utes with a standard clearance may falter, while buyers may have little need for a full-blown 4x4 and prefer the less expensive and less fuel thirsty 4x2.

The XL Hi-Rider has a 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel and six-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes six airbags, Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connection, and a five-star ANCAP crash rating.

The price is now $38,990 drive-away, an impressive saving of $6638 considering this is a 2020-built vehicle.

If you really have to have a 4x4, Ford has the higher-spec Ranger XLT 4x4 dual-cab ute with manual transmission and 3.2-litre five-cylinder turbo-petrol for $53,990 including on-road costs, a saving of a whopping $9172.

If you want an even bigger discount, go for the automatic version of this 4x4 that is now $55,990 drive away, saving $9498. The XLT adds features including satellite navigation, LED headlights and digital radio.

Toyota is offering deals on its highest-selling model, the HiLux, that will save buyers up to $7333. Any saving on a HiLux is not to be sneezed at, especially as the ute has such a strong resale value and an unbeatable service and parts back up that covers the country.

The Hilux SR 4x4 dual-cab automatic is now $47,990 drive-away, saving $7249 on its recommended retail price. It also has a five-star crash rating from ANCAP and seven airbags and active cruise control. 

For buyers who don't want the extra features of the SR, the Workmate 4x4 dual-cab ute is also on special for $44,990 including on-road costs, saving $7333.

Mitsubishi Triton

Mitsubishi's latest Triton ute is also on the discount block.

Mitsubishi's latest Triton ute is also on the discount block and, in addition to some price cuts, comes with a couple of attractive no-cost inclusions.

The Triton GLX 4x4 dual-cab with automatic transmission is now going for $38,490 drive-away –saving a huge $7151 – with the added incentives of a seven-year/150,000km warranty and a $1500 factory bonus.

The same incentives are also on the GLX manual 4x4 that is now $37,240 drive-away, a reduction of $4376.

Mercedes-Benz X-Class

This is the last chance to get a new dual-cab ute with a Mercedes badge and the ability to haul a heavy load in harsh off-road conditions.

Mercedes-Benz has called quits on its exercise into the ute market. This is the last chance to get a new dual-cab ute with a Mercedes badge and the ability to haul a heavy load in harsh off-road conditions.

It ends production of its X-Class ute range this month but in Australia, the company has already stopped new orders and is selling what it has in stock. It reports that there's a wide selection of ute variants available and has started an aggressive demonstrator sales program along with big deals on new vehicles.

New-vehicle prices include the X250d Progressive now at $60,020 drive-away, normally $62,995 to save $2975. The deal includes a five-year warranty that covers all new utes and demonstrators.

Demonstrator deals vary in price but examples include a X350d Power (2019 build) with the 3.0-litre V6 diesel and now at $66,800 drive-away. The new-ute price is $85,193 drive-away.

There are also some X250d Power utes with 2019 build plates for $56,880 licensed for the road, a saving of about $10,000 on a new equivalent. The demos have a factory five-year warranty and the first three scheduled services are free.

Expect more deals from Mercedes-Benz as the stocks begin to dwindle.
