HILUX HEADS DUAL-CAB BATTLE

BY THE NUMBERS

SALES in September were down across the board on previous months, but it was business as usual atop the 4x4 charts. The Hilux outsold the Ranger to extend its overall lead in 2018 as both the best-selling 4x4 and best-selling 4x4 ute. It was no doubt helped by the new front-end styling and sharp driveaway prices throughout the month, while the Ranger is in run-out mode as the updated model approaches. The Navara bounced back after a poor August, with 1274 units finding homes, allowing it to leap the Colorado in the monthly sales and the D-Max in the YTD figures. The race to the 2019 flag isnít over yet, as the updated Ranger arrives with its Raptor variant; plus, the 2.0-litre diesel engine will be available in regular XLT and Wildtrak models.
