it Is One Of The Hottest Segments In Australia And Youth Manufacturers Are Keen For Your Cash. So, We've Assembled Six Of The Best Dual Cab Four Wheel Drive Utes That You Can Get For About 50 K Today Trent And.

I Are Going To Join The Rest Of The Car Advise Crew To Do Some Rigorous Testing And Find Out Which Of These Six Deserves Your Cash The. Isuzu D-max Has Just Been Updated With The New Engine And Gearbox And Also A Minor Facelift The Updated Volkswagen Amarok Core Is The Only Beautyrx With Permanent Four-wheel Drive And It Also Has A Rear Diff Lock The Toyota Hilux Is The Staple In This Segment And This Workmate Version Is The Only Manual On Test The Mitsubishi Triton Has Just Been Updated Is The Most Affordable Automatic On Test And Now Gets Apple Carplay And Android Auto The New Holden Colorado Is The Segment Leader For Torque And Has Extensive Australian Ride And Handling Engineering The Ford Ranger Is Designed And Engineered In Australia And Is Comprehensively Packed With Four Wheel Drive Hardware. So, Let's Start Testing First Up We're Going To Test The Load Carrying Capabilities Will Be Using A Pallet With 750 Kilograms On It And Taking Each You On The Same Urban Loop Complete With Potholes And Speed Humps The Best-selling Car In Australia In 2016 Was A Ute The Toyota Hilux And It's A Youth That's Considered One Of The Best In The Class Because You Cannot Kill It.

So, Today We're Going To Try We're Going To Put The Load In The Back And Compare It Against Its Competitors To See Just How Much Room It Takes Up In Comparison To The Others We're Also Going To See Where We Can Tie It Down The Hilux Something Else Points On The Outside Not On The Inside And Most Importantly We Want To See How Much Sag We Get At The Back When This Load Goes In You're Going To See This Come Down And Maddy's Going To Measure It With The Measuring Tape To See How It Compares To The Rest In Terms Of The Percentage Of Sag Have A Look At That That Has Gone Down A Lot Of That Weight Has Gone In And As You Can See Comparative To The Front This Has Gone Down A Lot More. So, As You're Driving You're Going To Feel Like You're Pointing Out The Space What Will Now Do Is Jump Into Each Of These Cars Get Out Onto The Road And See How They Perform With A Load In The Back Whip It Off In The Hilux With 750 Kilos Worth A Load In The Rear And While That's Enough To Unsettle Most Youth The Hilux Is Coping With It Quite Nicely We Don't Have That Rear Steering Field That You Get In Some Youth With Load Where The Back End Becomes A Bit Skittish The Brake Pedal Feels Fantastic The Only Thing We're Longing Is At A Talk Feels Like It Could Do With Just A Bit More Punch With That Kind Of Load In It The Best Load Hauler On Test Was The Amarok Followed Closely By The Hilux With The Ranger In Third Amarok Impressed With Its Ability To Remain Composed The Hilux Carried The Weight Effortlessly, But A Lack Of Pride On Service While Ranger Remained Comfortable And Easy To Drive That Was Let Down By Break Performance The Next Test Is A Particularly Important One And There's A Test That We Call Urban Ride The Reason. I Say It's Particularly Important Is Because While We Want To Focus On Towing And Off-road Driving Driving On Dirt Most People Will Spend Most Of Their Time Doing Exactly This Driving Around Town As You Can See We've Jumped In The.

I Suzie G Max And While It's Not As Luxuriously Appointed As Some Of The Competition It's Really Impressed Us With Its Ride Around Town The Other Thing That We Really Like About The Demate Is How Bulletproof It Is They've Proven Over The Years To Build An Extremely Reliable Diesel Engine There's No Reason To Think This Vehicle Will Be Any Different And You Have To Try Really Hard To Kill One Of These So, If You Use It For Work And You Need It To Last The Long Distance This Is The Kind Of Vehicle You Should Be Looking At Tree-lined Roads Rolling Hills This Is Where The Ford Ranger Really Excels Out In The Australian Country And It's Because This Car Was Designed And Engineered Right Here In Australia That Means Oggy Engineers Spent A Lot Of Time And Legwork On Country Roads To To Murata Handling And Have Done An Exceptional Job Because It Soaks Up Everything You Throw At It Everything For Potholes The Corrugations That Has No Dramas With The Riders Comfortable Thanks To These Excellency We Did Some For Up Testing As Well To Make Sure That When You Do Have A Full Complement Of Passengers It Feels Just As Good With Them On Board Now Hardcore Off-road Work Is One Specific Discipline That's Very Important In The Portfolio Of One Of These Dual Cab Utes, But. So, Too Is This Kind Of Driving Which Is Unsealed Dirt Road The Colorado Is A Lot Better Than The Model It Replaces It's All New It's A Significant Step Forward, But Crucially It's Got A Suspension System That's Tuned And Designed In Australian What That Means Is It's Perfect For This Kind Of Driving This Tussle Is Closer Than Ever Before With The Amarok Emerging Ahead Thanks To A Permanent Four-wheel Drive System That Offers Peace Of Mind On Unsealed Surfaces The Ranger Comes In A Close Second Due To Its Easy Searing And Compliant Ride Even On Poor Quality Roads The Colorado Was Not Far Behind Courtesy Of Its Australian Ride And Handling Tune Our Third Test Was All About The Cabins Of The Youth Let's See How They Stacked Up The Ford Ranger Is The Most Expensive Car We Have On Test Here, But Sitting In This Seat Right Here You Would Never Pick It And That's Partly Due To The Fact They Don't Use Sink 3 Which Has Ford's Latest And Greatest Infotainment System Since They've Gone With This Ancient Unit That Looks Like It Was Pulled From A Car Ten Years Ago The Tiny Little Screen Does Your Infotainment, But It Also Does The Reversing Camera And It's Really Hard To See And Elements Of The Interior Feel A Little Cheap As Well Got Very Hollow Plastics A Plastic Steering Wheel Where The Rest Of The Cars In This Segment Really Try And Step It Up A Notch And Give You That Value-for-money Field The Amarok Impressed On Every Level However It Came Last Because It Doesn't Have Rear Seat Airbag Protection A Must In Our Opinion. So, In The End Ranger Came Third The Hilux Came Second, But It Was The Mitsubishi Triton That Impressed Us The Most And Took Out The Top Gong Mainly Because It's The Most Passenger Focused Of The Group Now There's Absolutely No Doubt That The Mitsubishi Triton Feels Particularly Premium Especially When You Take Into Account The Price Point This Is Not An Expensive Use Its Got Apple Carplay It's Got A Crystal Clear Screen It Doesn't Have Proprietary Nav, But Then Most Of Them Don't In This Segment And It's Also Got A Really Really Good Reverse Camera Which Makes Hitching Up The Trailer Particularly Easy, But Wherever You Look Inside The Cabin It Feels Like You've Spent A Whole Lot More Money Than You Have To Get Into A Tribe It's When You Start Towing That The Triton Illustrates The Fact That It's Not Actually The Best Tow Vehicle In The Extent And There's A Couple Of Reasons Why First Of All You've Only Got 133 Kilowatts And 430 Newton Meters That's Compared To Something Like The Colorado That Has A Whole 500 Newton Meter.

So, There's A Big Difference Beyond That You've Got A Small Capacity Turbo Diesel Engine, But Perhaps Most Crucially You've Only Got A 5-speed Automatic Now You Might Think That With Five Speeds Compared To Say Eight In The Amarok That The Tribe Would Be Changing Gears Less, But That's Not Actually The Case In Reality It's Still Hunting Up And Down The Gearbox A Lot Trying To Find Where It Needs To Be For The Road Fee That You Want. So, When You Add All Of That Up What You Get Is That The Trident Doesn't Quite Have The Guts To Be An Excellent Oh Really It's Only Is It Caper You're Going To Absolutely Love The Holden Colorado And That's Because It's Got Five Hundred Newton Meters Of Torque Available Fact It's. So, Good It'll Even Feel Like There's A Both On The Back Gets Even Better Downhill Where It Uses A Grave Logic Braking System Where It Preserved Your Brakes By Going Down Through The Gears The Colorado Set The Towing Standards With The Range Of The Next Set The D-max Also Performed Well Because Of A Truck Engine It's In Situations Where You Have Tires Off The Ground That A Genuine Four-wheel Drive Comes Into Its Own In The Really Tough Stuff The Triton Struggled Due To An Interruptive Traction Control System And No Rear Diff Lock Whereas The Hilux And Ranger Made Light Of The Rugged Terrain When The Going Got Really Tough There Was An Unexpected Standout Off-roader The Volkswagen Amarok Is The Odd One Out Here And That's Because It Doesn't Have A Low-range Gearbox Instead Volkswagen Uses An 8-speed Automatic With A Hypersphere Ratio To Simulate A Low-range Gearbox Muffler Comes With A Rear Differential Lock Plus And Off-road Mode And That Off-road Mode Is Really Handy In Mud And On Gravel Where Hitting The Brakes Allows The ABS To Engage Rock For A Little Longer And Build Up A Wall Than Spare Tire In Fact This Thing Really Doesn't Need Low Range Because We Were Able To Drive To Take Your Last Year Over The Old Telegraph Track That Is A Really Treacherous Thing Give You An Idea Of Just How Impressive It Is Going To Swing It Through The Mud Absolutely No Dramas At All It Just Rips Through This Is Really An Impressive Four-wheel Drive That Shows That You Really Don't Need A Low Range In 99% Of Situation The Most Effortless Four-wheel Drive On Test Was The Amarok Which Didn't Even Spin A Tire The Ranger Was Next-best Even Though It Was Harder To Drive Smoothly Thanks To Its Hypersensitive Throttle Pedal The Hilux Is Extra Tire We've Helped It Into Third Place, But It's Ride Was Definitely Jarring And A Little Harsh We Rated The Mitsubishi Triton The Highest-valued The Only Bureau Badge Contender Here The Amarok Was Second While The Colorado's List Price At Least Bit Higher Than The Volkswagen We Suspect You'll Be Able To Get A Good Deal At Your Holden Showroom Vehicles Like These Mid-grade Four-wheel Drives Are All Used For Work.

So, Taking Into Consideration Downtime And Servicing Costs Over The First Three Years Of Ownership The Most Affordable Is The Ice. Isuzu D-max Then It's A Big Step Forward To The Volkswagen Amarok As The Most Expensive. So, Guys The Judges Scorecards Have Been Tallied And Keep In Mind That We've Done This Anonymously.

So, That The Other Judges Didn't Know How We're All Scoring And We Have What. I Would Call A Clear Winner The Volkswagen Amarok Hold On Trent We've Got A Big Problem Okay You've Got A Very Big Problem, If There Are No Rear Airbags Which Means. I Would Not Under Any Circumstances Buy That Cast However Keep In Mind And You'll See This In The Review We've Penalized It Very Heavily In The Interior Stakes Because Of Those Lack Of Rear Airbags.

So, With That Taken Into Account It Still Come Out As A Clear Winner OK You've Got A Good Point There Because Over The Course Of The Last Five Days This Car Has Well And Truly Stood Out Across All Segments Despite The Fact That There's No Low Range It's Great Offroad It's Very Comfortable Inside And It Has The Most Premium Feeling Interior Despite The Fact That Is One Of The Oldest Cars In The Segment. So, The Message Here Is, If You're Going To Use Your Ute As A Workhorse, If You're Going To Really Test It Heavily Monday To Friday The Best All-rounder Is Undoubtedly The Volkswagen Amarok However, If You're Going To Put Your Kids In The Second Row Or Use The Second Row More Regularly There Are Five Other Youth In This Test So, If You Go And Read The Full Review You'll Be Able To See Where They Rank Below The Amaral In The Interim, If You Want To See Us Compare The Amarok Against Anything Else Or, If You Want To See Any Other Comparisons Let Us Know In The Comments Below Make Sure You Subscribe And Head To Care Advice.com To See This Full Comparison.
