Big shake-up coming in the pick-up market
Published 24/02/2016 | 02:30
The competition in the pickup sector has intensified.
There are new arrivals from Mitsubishi (L200) and Nissan (Navara), with more on the way from Ford (Ranger) as well as from Toyota (eightgeneration HiLux).
Other pickup models available here right now include the VW Amarok, Isuzu DMax, Land Rover Defender, and the Chinese built Great Wall Steed.
New entrants being planned include:
* One from Fiat based on Jeep's expertise in the 4x4 sector.
* Renault will have a first time offering based on the latest Nissan's Navara.
* Eventually MercedesBenz will have its much talked about new pickup. These will provide the most interesting expansion and shake-up the pickup market that we have ever seen.
