|jocoyn||Smaller = half ton. That is still a big truck compared to the compact turbodiesels pushing 50mpg that American car makers have made for the European and Australian markets for years abd which are not available in the American market.|

|sparra||We don't use the word "truck" to describe 4wds etc. A truck is a truck......like a cattle truck or a courier truck or semi trailer. Yes a hilux would be a pickup to you guys...to us it's a 4WD ute......just a different lingo|

So it sounds from the web that a ute is not actually a truck. Baja would fit the bill as well and probably the Honda Ridgeline which is not a true truck due to it's unibody construction.
But the first picture posted by the OP was clearly a truck with a camper shell so I went on that....and on the Toyota page from Australia the HiLux is in the utes and vans tab.......and that is most definitely a "pick up" as we say in the states.

Basically, a Ute is a Chevy El Camino or a Ford Ranchero.
Here is what my dogs ride in...
Can easily fit two crates, and with a little skillful tetris, could get 3 in. It doesn't get too bad with hair, a good vacuum gets rid of it very quickly.

|sparra||gsdsar.....Ute is an Aussie term for the first of czechsheps pictures.....most don't have the canopy just the tub or some have trays. Very popular with tradies/builders/farmers.......they are an Aussie icon......especially with a dog in the back They are not 4WD.|
