01.
Nissan Navara
From
$38,770
8/10
From
$38,770

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.


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

The 2024 Mitsubishi Triton is here, and it has some big ambitions ‑ namely reclaiming its place in the top‑three of Australia's best‑selling utes. To do it, it's bringing more power, more capability, more space and more technology. In fact, it's bringing more of everything. But has it done enough to worry the Isuzu D‑Max, Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger? We put the new Triton to the test to find out.


03.
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?


04.
Foton Tunland
From
$13,999
7.4/10
From
$13,999

Foton is planning a bright light‑commercial future in Australia, with the 2018 Tunland dual cab leading the charge. Here's why you shouldn't write it off as another cheap Chinese ute.


05.
Mahindra Pik-Up
From
$38,990
7/10
From
$38,990

Mahindra's evergreen Pik‑Up dual cab ute is a tough, budget‑friendly workhorse, particularly popular in rural areas. And now for the first time since its arrival back in 2007 it's available with an auto transmission. Is it a better bet than a Ford Ranger or Toyota HiLux?
