Most Economical Utes

Below are the top 10 most economical utes based on combined fuel efficiency.

Other utes match the Jumbuck on city fuel economy but its very low highway economy has seen the Jumbuck easily take top spot. Its a full 1.4 litres/100km more efficient in the combined scoring.

To be fair though every other ute here is far superior to the antiquated Proton, with larger more powerful engines, 4WD and crew carrying options, and far better safety.

Proton Jumbuck 2WD

The most economical ute is the Proton Jumbuck 2WD.

It achieves this through being lightweight and having a very small engine for a ute - only 1.5 litres developing just 66kW.

Although Proton claim a load carrying ability of 550kg don't expect it to go anywhere very quickly with this kind of weight.

The Proton Jumbuck has been around for some time now. Heavily criticised in reviews for poor safety and poor ride, this ute is no longer selling well and will shortly be phased out.
