|Mazda BT-50, with extra beef!|
At last year's Australian International Motorshow in Sydney, amongst an underwhelmingly small collection of new product launches and concepts were the international launches of two new models: Ford's Ranger, and its twin the Mazda BT-50. Accompanying them at the show was a Toyota Hilux driven to the North Pole by TopGear, a Rally-Raid Isuzu D-Max and Volkswagen's new Amarok in full Dakar Rally support vehicle liverly. That's right, the most interesting vehicles at last year's AIMS were utes.
|New Toyota Hilux. Looks quite a lot like, um, the old Hilux.|
|Holden's new Colorado in concept form.|
|Ford Ranger Wildtrak. But does it come with the surfboard?|
|A Volkswagen Amarok being perused by a large number of well-dressed tradies.|
|Want a ute with little more style? How about a Bentley?|
