The ute is a popular type of light-commercial vehicle (LCV), with it featuring an open tray or tub behind the passenger compartment. An abbreviation of 'utility', utes originally targeted tradespeople, but they're now often used as off-road adventure vehicles due to their availability of four-wheel drive (4WD), with two-wheel drive also available. Utes are even increasingly used as family cars thanks to their dual-cab body-style that typically seats five occupants. Single-cab and extra-cab configurations with two or three seats are also offered alongside pickup and cab-chassis options.
