Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara co-development plans already in the works

The next-generation versions of the Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara pick-ups will be a product of the alliance between the brands, with the strengths of each to be played off against one another to create a sort of mutant mega ute. But don't expect a Mitsussan Triara or Nisubishi Navton..

2018 Jeep Compass will exorcise memories of the old model, brand boss says

With the small SUV segment growing at an eyebrow-raising rate, it's almost a no brainer to state the importance of the all-new 2018 Jeep Compass when it launches in Australia later in 2017. "It will  be on sale at the very end of 2017, probably December," Jeep Australia brand chief Guillaume Drelon told CarAdvice at the launch of the updated 2017 Grand Cherokee in New Zealand this week...

Toyota SUV comparison: Fortuner v Kluger v Prado
