Craig Foss has the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, the gayest ute on NZ roads.
Now it seems that there is a shortage of that model in Australia.
The Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger are now the top sellers in the ute class.
Many buyers are unaware that, despite the badges, the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger are made in Thailand along with the Holden Colorado, Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi Triton, Mazda BT-50 and Isuzu D-Max.
Regardless of where they’re made, Aussies can’t get enough of them.
There is a six-month waiting list for the top-of-the-range Ford Ranger Wildtrak, despite its $60,000-plus price, and a three-month wait for the $55,000 flagship Toyota HiLux SR5.
