Every other year since 2009, the international Pick-up Award (IPUA) is presented to the most efficient 1-tonne pick-up truck in business today.
As a multi-functional vehicle produced and sold globally, both the product and marketplace continues to evolve with new manufacturers entering and leaving, while the traditional brands remain to set the standard for others to follow and aim to surpass.
“For the 2022 IPUA, there are four main contenders, three of which derive from Asia and the other from the United States, to demonstrate the truly international aspect to our award,” explained Jarlath Sweeney, Chairman, International Van of the Year jury, which organises the IPUA.
The contenders for IPUA 2022
- Isuzu D-Max
- Jeep Gladiator
- SSangYong Musso
- Toyota Hilux
“The decision is based on the vehicle’s functionality, its efficiency and its performances,” he added.
