2017 Best Dual Cab Utes for Work and Family


If you’re considering getting a dual cab ute as a family car, here are some of the biggest-selling options on the market today:

Ford Ranger

One of the best dual cab utes for a family, a Ford Ranger can be used as a tradie’s workhorse, a tow vehicle, an off-road 4WD, and an everyday family car. It is big (2202 kg, 5355mm long with a 3220mm wheelbase) and can be difficult to park in tighter parking spaces. Despite this, it doesn’t feel unwieldy to drive. This dual cab ute is classy, capable, tough, and roomy with a stylish in-cabin feel. It can tow up to 3,500kg.

Toyota HiLux

The Toyota HiLux has been one of the top selling vehicles in Australia for a number of years because of its unparalleled reputation for reliability and durability. With a seating capacity of 5, 3,200kg towing limit, and a Five-star ANCAP safety rating, the Hilux is a family-friendly vehicle that can be also used as a regular, practical ute. It is also available in a wide variety of configurations.

Nissan Navara

The Navara has user-friendly features such as a back-seat base that folds upwards for extra storage, power rear window, and a strong efficient diesel. Although it has a large 3,500kg towing capacity, the tray is smaller than its key rivals.

Mazda BT-50

The Mazda shares most of its body and materials with the Ford Ranger, however, the BT-50 is around $5,000 cheaper and the two cars have a very different feel. The BT-50 dual cab ute is a tough vehicle that can drive over sand and rocks. It can also tow beautifully with a maximum of weight of 3,500kg making it a very capable jack of all trades.

Mitsubishi Triton

the Triton has features such as dual-zone climate control, HID headlights, hill-start and trailer-stability assist, LED driving lights, and 17-inch alloy wheels making it great value for money. This dual cab ute is pretty easy to drive around town with a modern engine perfect for an everyday family car.

Choosing the best dual cab ute for a family vehicle is difficult because there are so many good options. To make your selection easier, make sure to get pre-approval for your business car loan before you visit the dealer so you know your budget.
