The ute could easily be described as the quintessential Aussie vehicle. It conjures up images of hard yakka working men and women, kicking up dirt as they hit the open road – hauling goods from Point A to Point B.
It just so happens that utes (utility vehicles or pick-ups to those outside of Australia) have come a long way since their inception way back in the 1920s. The Aussie Holden Commodore went a long way to making them what they are in Australia today. In fact, Ford Motors founder Henry Ford even nicknamed them “kangaroo chasers”.
SIXT loves utes as much as any Aussie, and we’ve made sure our range of rental utes are some of the sturdiest anywhere on the market.
Are you a ute novice but looking to rent one to do some heavy lifting or moving in the near future? Let us give you the rundown.
The SIXT rental range of ute brutes
Let’s start with Ford – the original utility vehicle creator almost 100 years ago. These days, the Ford Falcon utility is as popular as ever and continues to evolve into an even bigger and better vehicle. With a simple automatic transmission and a single cab, this beauty is easy to maneuver and has a very handsome, sleek look.
The Toyota Hilux range is always popular – you’ll see this model out and about on urban and rural Aussie roads. Drivers love the great Hilux range available, and SIXT car rental offers both single and dual cab options, manual or auto transmissions and varied seating capacity from two to five seaters. Toyota is also responsible for the well-known LandCruiser range, which offers a bit more grunt for those lovers of tough utes. We have the 4WD Tray LandCruiser at many of our convenient locations, which carries up to 1000kg. That’s a beaut’ ute!
Mitsubishi has really made a splash in the ute sphere, and SIXT loves their models so much that we offer the Triton range in single and dual cab options and auto or manual transmission. The 4WD Mitsubishi Triton with Turbo is a beast of a ute, with five spacious seats and a diesel engine – perfect for those big loads.
