Top 5 Dual Cab Utes

August, 2021

Australians are obsessed with dual cab Utes, and it’s not hard to see why. Yes, Utes are practical and tough. Just throw your tools in and off you go, but Manufacturers have adapted the utility to be more than just a Tradie's daily drive to work. The most recent models are spacious, packed with the latest tech and safety features and have impressive towing capacity which is making them a popular choice for families and adventurers.

With so many 4x4 dual cabs options around, how do you pick which one is right for you and your family? Does space matter? Reliability? Luxury? Or maybe it is all down to price?
