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.
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?
Sure, top‑spec utes are great, but what if you don't have a pile of money so high you'd need a 4WD dual‑cab to climb over it?

We put the Amarok Core and Amarok Life to the test to find out.
