Err, arent Hilux / Navara / Ranger etc small utes ?
Certainly compared to 70 Series Landcruisers or F - Series Fords etc

The old Subaru Brumby, while very popular here in the day, wasn’t really big enough to carry much more than your water bottle & tucker box in the back

our roads would kill something like a Caddy or little Fiat, especially with a few hundred kilos of toolboxes & other essential crap in the back

They aren't small utes to us. We used to have even smaller car derived pick-ups eg, the mini,Morris Minor,Morris Marina/Ital,VW Caddy(Golf based before it became a van here),Skoda Felicia,Ford P100(Cortina/ Sierra) and the odd Subaru something or other.None of that size anymore.
Your forgettin the old peugeot 504

Hilux, s have grown into big beasts now, with fuel consumption to match.
I spent £90 filling mine last night, its beyond a joke.

err, dunno about UK Hiluxes, but fuel consumption has improved on them here with each model & my 2014 3.0 is about the same size as my old 1980’s 2.4D & current model 2.8. They are all pretty much the same size when parked next to each other 🤷‍♂️


Used to cost a bit over $100 to fill my HZJ75 when I bought it new, now costs about $250, fuel has gone up a lot since then

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
