The Toyota Hilux pipped the Ford Ranger as the best selling vehicle last month.
779 registrations were made on the Toyota Hilux in August, compared to 690 for the Ford Ranger. That’s a 17% vs 15% market share.
Just down the list are the Holden Colorado, Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara.
The Hilux still has some ground to make up if it wants to finish the year as number one. So far this year, 6,320 Rangers have been registered vs 5,497 for the Hilux.
The fierce competition for market share bodes well for car lovers. The improvement in stability, towing capacity, integrated Bluetooth technology and overall comfort is on another level. The evolution in the exterior design too is also something to behold.
