Why You Should Get a Toyota Ute | Phil Gilbert Toyota

The Benefits of Owning a Ute

First and foremost, owning a ute is a very Australian thing to do. While they’re not the best for carting around friends and family, they do have many other great uses. The best reason to have a ute is if you work in labour or are a tradie. There’s no better space to fit all of your tools and supplies than in the back of your utility vehicle. This will allow you to keep your cab clutter free. If you’re carrying heavy loads or driving on unpredictable terrains, you’ll be grateful for a powerful ute to back you up. Utes also come in handy for things like big moves, airport pickups and drop offs, biking or camping adventures, trips with your dog, and even hard rubbish runs.

Why the Toyota HiLux is the Way to Go

The Engine

For any job that needs doing, the HiLux can handle it. The 2.4L Turbo-diesel engine has been able to produce maximum torque at the lowest possible RPM, so you are guaranteed smooth power and ultimate drivability in any road condition. You can always count on reliability, response and pulling power with this engine.

With a petrol engine choice as well, you won’t be cheated of any fuel efficiency or power.

It Can Tow Past the Line
