How big is the tub in your ute?

Although utes increasingly being used as family cars, what’s hanging out the back is still critical.

There’s a surprising amount of variance in the size of the tubs in Australia’s best-selling utes.

Below is a list of the dual-cab utes on sale in Australia and how their tubs stack up.

Toyota HiLux

The best-selling car in Australia has one of the longest and widest tubs on the market.

Length1570mm
Width1645mm
Height481mm
Between arches1109mm

Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger’s tub is slightly narrower than that of the HiLux, but it counters by being taller and broader between the wheel arches.

Length1549mm
Width1560mm
Height 511mm
Between arches1139mm

Mitsubishi Triton

The Mitsubishi Triton is smaller than its two big rivals, with a slightly shorter and narrower tray than the HiLux and Ranger.

Length1520mm
Width1470mm
Height475mm
Between arches1085mm

Isuzu D-Max

Australia’s fourth-best selling ute, the new D-Max, fits somewhere between the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux when you take a closer look at its tub.

Length1570mm
Width1530mm
Height490mm
Between arches1122mm

Mazda BT-50

Unsurprisingly, the D-Max and Mazda BT-50 have very similar dimensions in their tubs. The two are built by Isuzu at the same factory in Thailand.

Length1571mm
Width1530mm
Height490mm
Between arches1120m

Nissan Navara

A recent update saw the tub in the Navara grow taller, and its maximum payload increase on some models.

It’s one of the shortest tubs on the market, but counters by being wider than the the Triton, D-Max and BT-50, and Ranger.

Length1509mm
Width1560mm
Height519mm
Between arches1134mm

Volkswagen Amarok

The Amarok might be getting old, but it’s still capacious behind its cabin. When it launched, Volkswagen made plenty of noise about the fact it will fit a Euro pallet between its wheel arches.

At 1222mm between the arches, it remains the widest ute on the market in that particular measurement.

Length1555mm
Width1620mm
Height508mm
Between arches1222mm

LDV T60

The LDV T60 offers something most of its rivals don’t.

Along with its standard tub, the T60 is available in an with an extended option that adds 275mm of extra load length.

Length1525mm (1800mm Long Tub)
Width1510mm
Height530mm
Between arches1131mm
