Drivetech 4x4 RIVAL productsWith a 4WD conquering passenger cars for the title of best-selling vehicle in Australia last year, it is clear that the market is changing

Not only did the HiLux take out top honours, but the Ford Ranger was fourth on the list and the Mitsubishi Triton came in at ninth spot.
Design changes appear to have broadened their appeal and it is clear that there is no better time to own a 4WD vehicle.
With over 10,000 parts already on offer through the Drivetech 4×4 ranges (Brake and Clutch; Drivetrain; Engine, Body and Electrical; Filtration; Steering and Suspension; and SumoSprings), the quality offer from Drivetech 4×4 has expanded to include a wide variety of accessories. Now Drivetech 4×4 has parts to keep 4WDs on the road, and accessories to improve enjoyment off road as well.
Within the last 12 months alone, over 130 additional accessory products have been released to market and the pipeline for new products is full and focused on fast tracking the continued evolution of this range.
The launch of the accessories range has been enhanced through an integrated marketing campaign including digital (both website and social media), point of sale, consumer brochure and magazine advertising.
The introduction of accessories has been a welcome addition from the national network of Drivetech 4×4 Authorised Stockists as the addition of accessories to the existing hard parts range makes Drivetech 4×4 a single source supplier for their 4WD needs.

Significant range extensions to date include:
