2018 Toyota Prado Review

Yes, I would love to own a Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series V8 turbo-diesel, who wouldn’t? But the price is a bit of a stopper, more than a bit actually. Toyota makes it easy on a wannabe 'Cruiser 200 Series owner buy offering the smaller Prado which is a worthy little brother to the Big Kahuna and is still a [...]

2018 Toyota HiLux TRD Review

Aussies love dual-cab utes and they particularly like the 'souped-up' varieties that just about every manufacturer brings to the market. One of the latest additions to the mix is this TRD-enhanced version of the Toyota HiLux SR5. What I find really interesting about this Toyota 'accessories' pack is that it feels a bit more integrated than some of the other [...]

Ford’s Venerable Titanium Everest

By |2018-01-05T10:39:40+10:00January 5th, 2018|4WD, Car Reviews by Brand, Diesel, Ford Reviews, V6, Video Reviews|0 Comments

In recent years, LCVs (light commercial vehicles) like Ford’s Ranger, have been turned into SUVs. Everest is one such result. I saw Ford demonstrate their Ranger at the last Sydney Motor Show and here are some pics from inside.  Ford had cunningly set up a display by stacking shipping containers. With several together at angles and 45° ramps [...]

Holden Equinox: We also chat with Holden’s Natalie DAVEY

Holden Equinox. Never has a vehicle been so important for an auto maker. In Australia, there are Holden people, and Ford people, or at least, that’s the way it used to be. With the loss of local manufacturing, GM-Holden is now no different to any other retailer in Australia. Despite the loyalty built over a number of years, buyers [...]

https://youtu.be/pzKlNXgk6pg Holden has appealed to the adventurous lifestyle drivers with their Colorado Z71 special edition. The Holden Colorado Z71 is based on the Colorado LTZ 4x4 Crew-Cab pick-up, but adds a long list of cosmetic features. The Colorado is already jam packed with features and presents a capable 4WD Ute and the Z71 adds to the visual appeal. The [...]

Land Rover Discovery driven in the Balangalo National Park

We've been waiting a long time to see Land Rover's new Disco. It didn't disappoint. It is smooth, and takes off-roading to a new high, in the lap of luxury. With adjustable air suspension, leather trim, and a thrifty V6 under the bonnet, the Disco can go anywhere. Now on the same platform as a Range Rover, Discovery drives [...]

We did it all, the road trip, the shopping run, and airport pickup, and an emergency coffee run, and all we got was this crap T-shirt. The videos gathered are a wealth of information on our favourite 4WD. The sound in parts is a bit ropy, but such is life on the road. The 2018 Range Rover SV Autobiography [...]

If you go back five years the only 4WD wagon on the market that was based on a Ute was the Mitsubishi Challenger. Since then the market has changed dramatically with Isuzu and Holden starting the new trend, then Toyota and Ford followed and Mitsubishi replaced the Challenger. Now there is a good choice of robust, quality, reasonably priced [...]
