Best Selling Ute

Utes Hold a Timeless Appeal in Australia, Backed by Their Flexibility and Resilience. In recent times, Ute-based SUVs, combining utility with passenger comfort, have also been gaining traction. Discover the Chart-Topping Utes and Ute-Based SUVs Dominating the Australian Market in the First Quarter of 2023:

Leading the VFACTS ute sales ranking is the fresh-faced Ford Ranger, outpacing its arch-rival Toyota HiLux by a margin of over 1000 units. Claiming the third spot is the Isuzu D-Max, closely pursued by the Mitsubishi Triton and Mazda BT-50.

Chinese automakers GWM and LDV secure places in the top 10, with sales figures displaying only a slight variance between them. The imminent launch of Volkswagen’s next-generation Amarok in Australia has the potential to reshape the hierarchy by the close of June 2023.

Shifting focus to Ute-based SUV sales, the Isuzu MU-X emerges as the dominant force among four-wheel drives in Australia for Q1 2023. Trailing behind is the Ford Everest in the second slot, while the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport secures third place with a notable lead over the LDV D90 and Toyota Fortuner, separated by a mere 67 sales.

The Haval H9 made its exit from the segment by the close of 2021, with its successor yet to be confirmed. Noteworthy is the fact that larger four-wheel drive SUVs like the Toyota Prado and Subaru Outback have eclipsed the Ford Everest in sales.

There are numerous exceptional options available to suit diverse requirements and budgets. As the demand for these types of vehicles continues to grow, new manufacturers are expected to enter the market in the coming years.
