Find the right 4WD for you at Pickles
Looking for the right 4WD can be a little tricky, especially when you don’t have the right information handy. At
Pickles we sell hundreds of 4WDs nationally, so we can help find the right 4WD for you across a large range of
pre-owned, well maintained, late model 4WDs.
What is a 4WD and why should I buy one?
A 4WD capable car allows you to venture out into new territory across multiple types of terrain including sand, mud,
rocks and more. This is possible due to most 4WD’s ability to transition the power of its wheels from only 2
wheels to all 4 wheels, increasing its traction and ability to manoeuvre through different types of obstacles.
Don’t get this confused with an AWD, which permanently delivers power into all four wheels but at a dissimilar
distribution of power to the 4WD.
Which 4WD is the best 4WD for you?
Are you a tradie ready to take off on your next 4WD adventure at the drop of a hat or are you a team of parents trying
to plan your next getaway with the family in the school holidays? You can decide which 4WD is right for you based on the
needs of your lifestyle, as 4WDs come in various shapes and sizes.
Tradies looking for a 4WD can find a variety of utes that can be both a reliable work horse and a lively chariot.
Capable Dual Cab 4WD Utes include Australia’s favourite, the Toyota Hilux or the Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton
and VW Amarok.
Families looking for a more spacious 4WD will find comfort in the classic 7-seater Toyota Landcruiser Prado, which is
the current biggest-selling large SUV on the Australian market. Other worthy competitors to consider in this range are
the Nissan Patrol and Mitsubishi Pajero.
For those who aren’t looking for something so big and robust, but still want to take-off into the country-side on
an adventure with some mild off-road use across winding dirt tracks, you might find that an AWD is suitable for your
lifestyle. AWDs also come in different shapes and sizes but are not all suitable for off-road driving. AWDs that
should be considered for off-road driving is the Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV 4 and the Mazda CX-5.
