Bakkie genes breed a new range of affordable SUVs to rival the big-selling Toyota Fortuner
All three of these bakkie-based SUVs fare well. They’re definitely not just bakkies wearing make-up; they’ve clearly graduated from bakkie to SUV, but one with better marks than any other. And the highest marks out of these three graduates go to the Ford Everest. It may not have the best style, but it’s strong, spacious and versatile, and easily the best priced. With the Fortuner’s age showing and the Pajero Sport falling behind in the competition, the Ford Everest takes home the valedictorian prize for these real SUVs.
