The modern day Commodore vs Falcon battle is without a doubt Toyota HiLux vs Ford Ranger.
Month after month, this rival company usually tops the sales charts in Australia. And combined, 4×2 and 4×4 ute sales make up the largest segment in Australia in terms of sales volume.
So we thought it would be fun to provide a visual overview of ute sales since 1997, focusing on the segment’s best sellers.
For this purpose we have combined each 4×2 and 4×4 sales of each model, although these are recorded separately in VFACTS.
Press play to see.
Above, you can see an overview of how ute sales compare over the past 25 years year by year.
Below is a cumulative graph of sales for the last 25 years for the best selling ute models. Press play to see.
For clarity, we’ve combined sales of the Holden Colorado and Rodeo, as well as the Ford Ranger and Courier.
Did you think the Ford Ranger’s reign as Australia’s second best selling car of all time was so recent?
