The utes the CarExpert team would buy

Australians can’t get enough of utes.

Whether you call them utes, pickups or bakkies, you can’t ignore just how common they’ve become. No longer simply workhorses, these vehicles have become popular family vehicles in Australia – to the delight of some, and to the chagrin of others.

Not only are HiLux-sized utes ubiquitous here, but there’s also a whole ‘nother segment of full-sized American pickup trucks that are becoming increasingly popular here. The Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado will soon be joined by the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra in local showrooms.

There’s a mix of opinions among the CarExpert team, with some of us more enthusiastic about the prospect of owning a ute than others. Nevertheless, I put the question to our team members to find out just which ute they would buy if they were in the market.
