Best Utes according to our experts

01.
Isuzu D-Max
From
$32,200
8/10
From
$32,200

Towing a caravan is our final long‑term test exercise for the 1.9‑litre 4x2 version of the Isuzu D‑Max, and it's performance, not to mention fuel‑economy, raises questions about the worth of the 3.0L version.


02.
Ford Ranger
From
$36,880
8/10
From
$36,880

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.

7.2/10
From
$33,050

Nissan Australia and Aussie vehicle‑engineering company, Premcar, have combined forces to produce a gung‑ho Navara ute via their on‑going Warrior collaboration.It looks the goods and certainly packs a punch, conversion wise, on paper at least.But how well will this upgraded and re‑engineered 4WD handle wild weather, flooded rivers and a pair of argumentative teenaged passengers?

Mazda BT-50
From
$34,800
8/10
From
$34,800

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?

Toyota HiLux

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?
