Diesel Utes

Best Utes according to our experts

01.
Ford Ranger
From
$36,380
8/10
From
$36,380

While Ford's show pony Ranger Wildtrak and Raptor grab the headlines their hard‑working 4x2 siblings are quietly getting on with the job. We've put the Ranger XL 4x2 Double Cab to the fully‑loaded TradieGuide test to see how it stacks up under pressure.


02.
Mitsubishi Triton
From
$30,740
8/10
From
$30,740

Larger, stronger, roomier, safer and more comfortable, the sixth‑gen Triton for 2024 elevates Mitsubishi's mid‑size ute to fresh heights for the brand. And while its lack of V6 diesel and/or hybrid availability is disappointing, the all‑new chassis's Australian‑specific tune is a big step forward. We won't know how it behaves on‑road, but a stint off‑road shows how far this ute has come.


03.
Nissan Navara
From
$39,990
8/10
From
$39,990

Nissan Australia scored a hit with its locally enhanced Navara Warrior PRO‑4X. Now it's offering a more affordable version that keeps all the hardcore stuff and trims away some of the fancy bits around the edges ‑ the Navara SL Warrior.


04.
Toyota HiLux
From
$26,475
8/10
From
$26,475

Toyota's GR (Gazoo Racing) performance brand is spreading across the Japanese giant's line‑up. Even the HiLux ute is getting in the act with a GR Sport variant designed to take the fight up to Ford Ranger Wildtrak and Raptor. But what's it like as a work truck?


05.
Mazda BT-50
From
$35,888
8/10
From
$35,888

Mazda's BT‑50 ute competes in one of the Australian new car market's hottest segments against the all‑conquering Ford Ranger, evergreen Toyota HiLux, and many more. Can a new premium XTR LE grade zoom zoom a few more 4x4 ute buyers Mazda's way?
