Best 4X4 Wagons
The Ford Everest is a large SUV based on the Ranger ute and introduced locally in 2015 – becoming an indirect replacement for the Territory SUV built in Australia between 2004 and 2016.
Mitsubishi Pajero Sport
If 2WD is your preference, Mitsubishi released the base-spec GLX five-seater – the cheapest entry point into the Pajero Sport range – and the seven-seat GLS early in 2022.
The Toyota Fortuner is a 4WD based on the HiLux ute and first arrived on Australian soil in 2015, with its last significant update occurring in 2020 when it received a revised 2.8L diesel engine – the same engine transplanted into the Hilux and Prado at the time – with 150kW and 500Nm on tap.
The current three-model Fortuner line-up shares the 1GD-FTV four-cylinder engine, which runs through a six-speed automatic transmission and part-time 4WD system.
The line-up for the venerable Toyota Prado consists of the GX, GXL, VX and top-spec Kakadu.
All Prado models are powered by a 150kW/500Nm 2.8-litre turbo-diesel engine that runs through a six-speed automatic transmission. Buyers can get a total of 150 litres of on-board fuel if they opt for the 63-litre sub tank option. Combine this with its 3000kg towing capacity, and the Prado is a viable long-distance hauler.
