Most powerful double cab bakkies under R500,000

The double cab bakkie with the most power that sells for under R500,000 in South Africa is the Toyota Hilux 2.7 Double Cab S.

The bakkie generates 122kW and 245Nm from its naturally-aspirated, 2.7-litre petrol engine – and has an asking price of R460,600.

This was our finding when we looked for the most powerful new bakkie you can buy for under half-a-million rand.

Across this price bracket, we found that not one bakkie puts out less than 100kW, while maximum towing and carrying capacities tended to vary quite dramatically.

Despite the Toyota Hilux having the highest power output, it supports the second-lowest maximum carrying capacity on this list – 835kg.

Under R500,000
