It is bakkie madness in the November 2021 issue of CAR. We take 10 of South Africa’s finest double-cab bakkies out into the wild to put them in their natural habitat to find out which is the best offering of them all. No stone is left unturned as we test every single aspect of each product.
We also sample the much anticipated Jeep Gladiator which sees the iconic 4×4 brand return to the double-cab bakkie style since the 1980s. The new model entered a highly competitive pick-up market in the USA two years ago but we assess whether a case can be made or it in South Africa.
New to our local offering is the Ford Ranger Stormtrak which can be considered as somewhat as a farewell edition to the generation that has served us for a full decade. Is this just another sticker-job product or is it a real compelling offering? We find out.
Balancing out the bakkie content is the updated Volkswagen Tiguan with the brand’s 162 kW EA888 turbopetrol four-pot. The brand’s highly successful SUV is now sharing its space with newer crossover offerings such as the T-Cross and T-Roc. Does it still have what it takes to win the hearts of consumers?
All this and more in the November 2021 issue of CAR!
