JOHANNESBURG – The fact is, as South Africans, we are obsessed with bakkies; big ones, small ones, heck… even maniacally modified ones.
It is for this reason that IOL’s sister publication Drive360 has gone big on bakkies for the second edition of its new digital magazine, which you can view here.
Which are the best bakkies on the market right now? We take a closer look at six of our favourite, while also taking a closer look at some other interesting options on the market. Oh, and did we mention that we also took our new long-term Ford Ranger Raptor on a 1200km adventure?
As bakkie fans we also like to dream of those foreign models that are not available in South Africa, such as the new Ram TRX from the USA, so we couldn’t resist compiling a list of six pick-ups that we would love to see in South Africa, were it not for right-hand-drive production constraints.
All this and more, including some interesting reader rides, in the September issue of Drive360.
