With four very different engines under the bonnets of our test vehicles, we thought it would be interesting to see which bakkie was the quickest in one of the trickiest off-road conditions: fine beach sand. This test would demonstrate how well the bakkies' traction control systems dealt with the low-grip conditions.
And so we staged an off-road drag race, an event in which only purposeful 4x4s bakkies could possibly compete, featuring the new 2016 Toyota Hilux, the facelifted Ford Ranger, the Volkswagen Amarok and the latest Isuzu KB.
Performance stats and specifications for all the cars are presented at the end of the video.
