There is a big advantage in 4 X 4 duel cabs in that they are exempt from FBT.Dual cab utes actually kinda suck. Good for some things but if you don't regularly need the tray then they are pretty impractical. The back seat is small and usually uncomfortable and you have zero cargo space other than that. So if you are lugging around bales of hay or trail bikes or whatever then great, but if you have kid seats and the 17 bags of stuff that seem to go with ferrying kids around then pretty much all of it ends up in a tray exposed to the elements.
I'd say 9/10 people are better off with a wagon than a ute. Even something like a Toyota Hilux/Fortuner which are effectively the same car with a different body you're better off with the flexibility of the wagon. I've had a couple of wagons over the last 6-7 years after having a sedan and it's been great. I'd only ever buy a sedan again if it was a fun one. Saw a very sleek Mercedes C63 AMG the other day. If you didn't know what you were looking at you could think it was just a regular 4 door sedan. But the 19 inch rims, steering wheel sized brake rotors and 'V8 biturbo' badge on the quarter panel gave it away. But then that's about $180-200k worth of car...
I have a V6 Amarok which is a great vehicle that suits me perfectly.
Kids are gone, great off-road, tows the boat well, drives well, throw the bike and the dog in the back.
No way I'd be getting a 4wd company vehicle without the FBT concession. Actually works out cheaper for the company over a 4 year lease than a Commodore.
