The Holden Colorado Z71 is a lifestyle-accessorised version of the Colorado. It has stickers, a sailplane sports bar and a stack of other Z71-specific gear … but underneath it’s still a Colorado. And there’s nothing wrong with that – the Colorado itself is a quiet achiever in the ute market: it has...Read more
Timing, they say, is everything. But it cuts both ways. A group of...Read more
There's a lot of hype about the Gladiator, Jeep's first ute in a long time, and there's a lot riding on its anticipated success. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Australia is hoping the Gladiator can take on Australia's segment leaders, such as the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger, or at least rise to...Read more
The LDV T60 was rather a pleasant surprise at its Australian launch in 2017. It was a Chinese-built dual-cab ute that actually looked pretty good, seemed well-built, drove nicely, was adequately capable off-road and it was sharply priced and well-equipped. Now, a few years down the track, the big...Read more
The Nissan Patrol has long been considered a real adventure machine, a large 4WD wagon with a rock-solid rep, and the capability to tackle tough terrain. It had been in a long-time tussle with the Toyota LandCruiser for large SUV supremacy in Australia’s – but that all changed when the Nissan...Read more
When I first reviewed the Toyota Fortuner – way back in 2016 when it was launched here – I thought it was pretty good: a solid, if unspectacular, seven-seat 4WD. For a ute-based wagon it wasn’t a game-changer, but it was a decent effort. Toyota’s given the Fortuner a few upgrades since it's launch...Read more
Much has been penned about the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon’s effectiveness off-road – and we’ve been responsible for a fair chunk of that, having done plenty of hard-core four-wheel driving in it – but we haven’t towed with it … until now. So, how did it do? To find out, read on.Read more
The Ram 1500 diesel is finally here. This is arguably the big pick-up truck Aussies have been waiting for, because until now, if you wanted a Ram 1500 you had to have it with a petrol engine. But the launch of the 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie EcoDiesel could well be the answer to plenty of people's...Read more
Hybrid campers are no longer a new development in caravanning and camping. We've been seeing trailers like them, in some form or another, for nearly two decades. The concept is straightforward: hybrid campers offer some of the best comforts of a caravan (solid walls, proper beds, little to no set-...Read more
Hybrid campers tread the line between caravan comfort and camper trailer-manoeuvrability and are touted as somewhat of a new thing; almost an evolution of comfort as more people look for a perfect camping experience. But camper-trailers like the Cub Longreach LE prove that the concept has been...Read more
Do you want a mid-size SUV that looks nice, drives well, has impressive fuel economy and will help you single-handedly save the world? (Well, that last claim is not entirely accurate but, at this point in the history of the world, every little bit helps). Meet the Toyota RAV4 Cruiser AWD hybrid ...Read more
With the market fairly screaming out for high-spec and high-performance dual-cab utes, along comes the latest in a long line of beefed-up work-and-play horses. The problem is we've all become a bit cynical about anything touted as an action-ready ute because what's come before has been a mish-mash...Read more
Mitsubishi’s Pajero is a genuine seven-seater 4WD wagon with a lot of substance and little in the way of pretence. It’s functional without being at all flashy and that suits plenty of people – real people – but the Pajero’s traditional styling and paucity of driver-assist tech, compared to some of...Read more
The new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is arguably one of the best factory-prepped off-roaders on the market. It's a real 4WD with a proud hard-core heritage, and the assumption is that the new version, the JL, is a very capable terrain tourer, straight out of the showroom. We took a Rubicon out...Read more
Utes dominate the sales charts and top-spec premium dual-cabs rank among the most popular with ute buyers. The Mazda BT-50 Boss is one of the more recent in a long line of accessorised dual-cab utes . The problem is: these utes are often a triumph of style over substance, more flash than...Read more
In the grand hierarchy of off-road adventures, few reach a pinnacle quite...Read more
Subaru is synonymous with bringing effective – and popular – all-wheel drive wagons to market. And its Forester has done pretty well in the past as a comfortable and capable dirt-road tourer, more than appropriately equipped to tackle low-intensity off-roading. But has the company now tipped too...Read more
The Toyota LandCruiser is a deadset off-roading legend, its reputation built on a lifetime of reliability, toughness, capability, not to mention the availability of Toyota parts Australia-wide. The 200 Series has been around for more than a decade and, until the 300 Series arrives here in about two...Read more
The Jeep Wrangler is a very capable 4WD with real bush credibility, there's no disputing that, but just how much does something like the line-up's mid-range variant, the 2019 Overland, rest on the laurels of the brand's 'Trail Rated' heritage? It's not a very practical daily driver and it has less...Read more
