Save money on your next ute

If you're looking to buy a new ute, use the Green Vehicle Guide (GVG) to choose one that is right for your needs and your hip pocket.

Our search and compare tool is one of many simple ways the GVG can help you drive cheaper and greener.

The tool provides you with data on emissions, fuel consumption, electric range, cost and noise, which you can easily download and share with others or to refer to later as part of your research.

Follow the below steps for tips on using the tool to buy your next ute:

1. On the Green Vehicle Guide home page, scroll to the 'Search and compare vehicles' section.

Enter the ute you would like to quickly get data about using the dropdown menus.

You can also click the 'Search cars' tool in the 'Tools and calculators' top dropdown menu to search and compare all utes, or utes with certain specifications.

2. Once on the page, you can use the 'Body' dropdown menu to select 'Utility' in the vehicle specifications section to filter to just utes.

You can refine your search with other details if you'd like to compare vehicles. For example, in the screenshot below we've chosen automatic utes.
