Hitting the beach in the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Let's be up front about this – you simply cannot question the pedigree of the Jeep Wrangler, whose legend began in 1940 when the original four-wheel drive prototype was delivered to the U.S. Army. That first car was the grandfather of the Wrangler we still see on our roads today...

Across the Simpson Desert in a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen

An endless expanse of red dirt, shrubs and low trees fold away into the distance. Occasionally, you see a small ridge line of brighter, redder dirt, brilliantly red rocks while the odd cow chews some cud as you whistle past on the heavily corrugated road.

The Holden Colorado’s facelift back in Q3 2016 was a huge leap forward for the model, but one major area where it’s feeling a lot fresher is inside the cabin...
