Best & Most Affordable 4x4 Utes in Australia 2024


What can you say? Australians love 4x4 Utes.

It will come as no surprise to see 4x4 Utes dominating the Vehicle Sales charts and it’s safe to say 2024 will be no exception.

As we start a new year one of the biggest questions that come to mind for so many Australians looking to buy a 4x4 is what is the best 4x4 Ute available in 2024?

Shop for Cars has put together a list of the Best 4x4 Utes currently available in Australia in 2024.

This list has been put together based on expert advice and owner surveys.

Let’s get into it.

1. Toyota Hilux

When you think of 4x4 Utes in Australia you instantly think of the Toyota Hilux. There is only one reason why the Toyota Hilux has continued to top the Australian Vehicle Sales chart for over 6 years – because it offers the smoothest, most reliable, and safe drive for motorists.

Whether it be on road or off road, the Toyota Hilux’s performance is second to none in the current Australian 4x4 fleet. The Toyota Hilux comes with a 3.0 diesel engine with a turbo option, alloy wheels, tow bar, side steps, hard Torne Cover, cruise control, touch screen audio, central locking, reverse safety cameras and above all else a 5-star`ANCAP safety rating.

2. Ford Ranger

If you look at the Vehicle sales figures over the last 3 years you will see the Ford Ranger only slightly trails the Toyota Hilux as Australia’s most popular vehicle. Year after year many experts predict to the Ranger could do the impossible and dethrone the Hilux. Could 2024 be the year?

Unfortunately, in 2022 the Ford Ranger fell agonisingly short. Which brings us to the point, the only way the Ford Ranger can continue to rank second in Australia vehicle sales chart year after year is because it offers drivers a powerful and reliable drive both on and off road.

The Ford Ranger is packed with a 3.2 turbo diesel engine, side steps, hard cover tray, roof platform awning and lights, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the very best safety features including ability control, cross traffic alert, forward collision mitigation system, and lane keeping assist.

3. Isuzu D-Max

Over the last few years, the Isuzu D-Max has skyrocketed up Australia’s Vehicle Sales chart becoming a genuine competitive alternative to the two prominent 4x4s – the Toyota Hilux and the Ford Ranger. The reason why the Isuzu D-Max has risen so fast so quickly is because it offers exceptional performance without the large price tag.

The Isuzu D-Max provides drivers with a 3.0L Diesel engine, 17"alloy wheels, side steps, tow bar, multi airbags, cruise control, power steering, traction control, ABS brakes, brake assist, electronic stability program and a 5 Star ANCAP safety rating.

4. Mitsubishi Triton

The Triton is arguably Mitsubishi’s best vehicle, in my opinion eclipsing the super-popular Lancer! The only way that any vehicle can survive competing with the Hilux and Ranger is by offering drivers something just as reliable and at a cheaper price. The Triton gives motorists all this and more!

The Mitsubishi Triton is packed with a 2.4 Litre Diesel Engine, power steering, alloy wheels, ABS, climate control, central locking, cruise control, dual airbag package, bull bar, LED light bar, fog lights, and second to none safety features including Dual frontal, side chest, side head airbags, Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Advanced seat belt reminders and Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD).

5.Nissan Navara

The Nissan Navara often doesn’t get the recognition it thoroughly deserves. Since 1997, the Nissan Navara has been providing drivers with a safe, powerful, and more importantly reliable drive on and off road.

When you look at the features, the differences between the Nissan Navara and it’s competitors is not all that much. The Nissan Navara comes with 2.7Ltr Engine, ABS, Alloy Wheels, climate control, power steering, keyless entry & start, dual airbag package, side steps, fog lights and last but not least a 5-star ANCAP safety rating.
