4X4 Australia: June 2021 out now


  • Seven dual-cab utes compete head-to-head
  • Deluxe 'Lux with the lot
  • New kit for the 4X4 Australia D-MAX

IT'S new magazine day here at 4X4 HQ, with the June 2021 issue officially on shelves and in letterboxes.

If you're in the market for a dual-cab ute - and recent VFACTS results suggest a lot of people are - then this issue is essential reading, as we have included a comprehensive examination of Australia’s most popular vehicle segment.

We tested seven of the most popular dual-cab utes in Australia to crown an overall champion, with each vehicle put through a series of exhaustive tests: straight-line performance evaluation, wet and dry braking, on- and off-road driving dynamics, payload and tow testing, level of interior and safety equipment, and overall running costs.

The June 2021 issue also comprises two custom 4x4 builds: a 2014 N70 Hilux (the Deluxe Lux plastered on the cover of this issue) and a D23 Navara ST. Both vehicles exemplify that when you mix know-how and quality equipment, the results can be extraordinary.

Our main man in the USA, Chris Collard, convinced Jeep to lend him the keys to a Wrangler Rubicon 392 - a vehicle we'll never get here, unfortunately. Still, Chris blitzed Moab dust in the 350kW/637Nm 6.4-litre HEMI-powered Wrangler, and we have complete coverage of the adrenaline-inducing off-road experience.

We also lined up two family favourites - Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport - to find out which seven-seat wagon is the better off-roader, and which is better for hauling kids.
