Single cab Utes

Our best single cab ute picks

Ford Ranger

What we like

  • Tough styling inside and out
  • Good road holding for a ute
  • Strong engine, even with a load

What we don't

  • Rear camera should be standard on all models
  • Price is too expensive, the premium may not last
  • Base models look too basic inside, a bit offensive given the price

Toyota HiLux

What we like

  • Feels much more planted on the road
  • Improved towing capacity over previous model
  • A cool box "esky" in the dash

What we don't

  • New 2.8L turbodiesel lacks the grunt of Ranger’s 3.2L five-cylinder
  • New 2.4L turbodiesel was noisier in lower HiLux grades

  • Large tray

What we don't

  • Too noisy

Volkswagen Amarok

What we like

  • Superb refinement, plenty of oomph
  • Classy cabin design, roomy layout
  • Drives like an SUV, not a ute
