I still don't know what a ute is, but if I saw a guy stealing one from me, I'd tackle him too.

when i read the word "ute" i don't think of a "pickup". rather, i think of vehicles like the brat, el camino, and ranchero...sort of a car/truck hybrid

Apparently that is what it used to mean. It has been so overused that it means pretty much anything with 4 wheels in Australia. Kinda like how tards use "car" in the US.

i always refer to mine by its make, as in "i drive my scion to work", "the scion needs gas", "honey, did you clean the dead squirrels out of the back of my scion?"

No, in Australia a Ute is a pickup and thats that. Whatever else you yanks want to call a utility vehicle is your problem.

In Australia a Ute is a Ute and everyone knows what that is, eg see here:

ARGHH, ok I was wrong. a Ute is a pickup made by Ford or Holden . No other model of pickup can qualify as a proper Aussie Ute.

It's come to my attention Volkswagen is making something they are attempting to call a "UTE". This is an abomination and should be killed with fire.

Utes; that's a silly name. I was going to call them chizzawuzzas.

"apprehended a car thief by jumping into the tray of his ute "
...
"Mr Broome showed a ....clean set of heels."
...
"he gave chase and managed to jump into the tub of the ute "
...
"While lying flat in the tub he dialled Triple-0."
...
"charged a suspect with .... disqualified driving "



I lead such a sheltered life. I don't know what any of this means.

It's mostly for the truck space. Holds 2 dead hookers without removing their legs. Try that with a Honda Accord.

Hell, up until this point, the mention of a Ute reminded me of the Indian Tribe or the University of Utah, not a vehicle.

if you lay the seats down in the scion you can stack 'em high. only problem is they're easily visible to everyone, and smell bad too

Whatever a ute is, if it's in Australia, it's probably deadly poisonous and the thief is already dead.

don't be silly, the ute's aren't poisonous on their own, they're poisonous because we use them to carry around our pet Funnelwebs, Redbacks and Blue Ringed Octopuses in the tray.

the ute will be beaten by a british van driven by a slow man packing an extra large engine

What was the Ute thinking when he was stolen?

"Today is a good day to die. For you. Not for me. Help! Help! I'm being stolen! Help!"

i'm impressed a 19 yr old ute would have triple 0. money well spent. get the gold service. pays for itself every year. excellent service, never leave you stranded. you have triple 0 and a cell phone you go anywhere, you own the road, no worries.

Traditionally a Ute is a vehicle with a tray made using a traditional car base.

Ie, a sedan or wagon with the boot (trunk) and rear seats hacked off and a tray in its place. For example, commodore or falcon utes.

Although most Australians call light trucks (hilux, rodeo, navara, etc) which were never designed as anything but a light truck, utes also as they fill the same purpose.

I'll have you know that my Honda Accord can carry 19 bags of bark mulch... or up to 6 dead hookers with legs intact.

Of course, I have to store some in the back seat, but that's not really an issue... at least with the mulch.
