01. Mazda BT-50

Mazda is making the new financial year a time to do business with big discounts up to a whopping $10,000 on some vehicles in its BT-50 ute range. Many of Mazda’s offerings include drive-away pricing, but there’s also some decent cuts to the retail price to lure workers.

The cheapest entry into the brand’s BT-50 ute range is the single cab, cab-chassis XT in two-wheel drive with a 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and manual transmission. The 2019-built ute is now $29,990 drive-away, including an alloy tray.

There is a 4x4 version also on sale for $36,290, including on-road costs and the tray. It’s usually $40,280 without rego and the tray, saving close to a huge $10,000.

For more spacious cabin room, the BT-50 Freestyle may be the go. It adds two small rear-hung doors that open to a short-haul seating area for two people. The seats also fold to offer space for toolboxes. The Freestyle is in cab-chassis 4x2 with XT trim for $33,290 drive-away, including tray, saving about $8000. A 4x4 version is now $38,790, saving about $6000.

02. Mitsubishi Triton

Mitsubishi has single-cab, cab-chassis Tritons priced from $24,990 drive-away and while that saves a healthy $2421, there’s more.

Mitsubishi will take off a further $1500 and include a seven-year or 150,000km warranty. In practical terms, buyers are saving about $6900 or a whopping 25 per cent, plus get the assurance of the really long warranty.

This entry-level Triton GLX has 2WD and a five-speed manual gearbox. There’s a version with a six-speed manual for $29,240 (saving $1820) plus the two bonuses.

In fact, these bonuses spread through most of the Triton offerings.

The automatic GLX is now $31,740 drive-away as a single-cab cab-chassis, saving about $4500. And there’s a 4x4 version with six-speed manual in the GLX trim for $34,240, saving about $8500.

03. Isuzu D-Max

Want the popular Isuzu Ute as a durable workhorse with the EOFY discounts? Isuzu Ute has really taken the axe to its sticker prices as it weans the current D-Max off the Australian market in preparation for the all-new model later in the year.

The entry-level SX single-cab cab-chassis in 4x2 with a manual gearbox is $26,990 drive-away, down $6494 or 19 per cent, and includes an alloy tray. There are also a couple of High Ride variants that give more ground clearance and can be a cheaper alternative to a 4x4 that may never be used.

The LS-U High Ride automatic 4x2 with dual-cab body is now $40,990 drive-away, a fat $8739 saving.

For more gear including sat-nav, leather seats and electric driver’s seat adjustment, the LS-T is also on special before June 30 with a price of $43,990 including on-road costs, down from $53,582 to save $9592 or 17.9 per cent.

04. Ford Ranger

Ford has really come to the EOFY party for workers eligible for the asset write-off. The entry-level XL 4x2 cab-chassis with single cab body is now $28,990, a saving of $4074. The price is for the 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission. It includes on-road costs.

The Hi-Rider version that sits higher and has a 232mm ground clearance, up 31mm on the standard 4x2 Ranger, is ideal for buyers who don’t need a 4WD, and its increased weight and fuel consumption, yet want the extra clearance for rutted terrain.

The Hi-Rider also has far better clearance, with an approach angle of 28-degrees (22-degrees is standard), a ramp-over of 24-degrees (17-degrees) and a departure angle of 27-degrees, up from the 4x2 standard model at 22-degrees. The XL Hi-Rider with automatic transmission and 2.2-litre turbo-diesel is now $30,990 drive-away, a saving of a whopping $8561 or 21.6 per cent.

05. Toyota HiLux

Not to be outdone, Toyota has put a range of HiLux models out on the dealer forecourt and is slashing prices to clear them before the end of 2019-20. It has also offered a $1500 deposit bonus when choosing finance.

For workers, there’s the entry-level Workmate single-cab, cab-chassis petrol manual that is now with on-road costs and an alloy tray for $24,490 drive-away, a drop of about $5000 or 18.7 per cent.

There’s also a 4x2 Hi-Rider HiLux for buyers wanting the ground clearance but don’t need a 4x4. This single-cab cab-chassis has a 2.4-litre turbo-diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission and is now $29,990 drive-away with a tray, a saving of about $4500.

Toyota will offer a $1500 finance deposit bonus on its work horses in the lead up to the end of the financial year.

Contributing Journalist
GoAutoMedia Cars have been the corner stone to Neil’s passion, beginning at pre-school age, through school but then pushed sideways while he studied accounting. It was rekindled when he started contributing to magazines including Bushdriver and then when he started a motoring section in Perth’s The Western Mail. He was then appointed as a finance writer for the evening Daily News, supplemented by writing its motoring column. He moved to The Sunday Times as finance editor and after a nine-year term, finally drove back into motoring when in 1998 he was asked to rebrand and restyle the newspaper’s motoring section, expanding it over 12 years from a two-page section to a 36-page lift-out. In 2010 he was selected to join News Ltd’s national motoring group Carsguide and covered national and international events, launches, news conferences and Car of the Year awards until November 2014 when he moved into freelancing, working for GoAuto, The West Australian, Western 4WDriver magazine, Bauer Media and as an online content writer for one of Australia’s biggest car groups. He has involved himself in all aspects including motorsport where he has competed in everything from motocross to motorkhanas and rallies including Targa West and the ARC Forest Rally. He loves all facets of the car industry, from design, manufacture, testing, marketing and even business structures and believes cars are one of the few high-volume consumables to combine a very high degree of engineering enlivened with an even higher degree of emotion from its consumers.
