2016 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk: an action-packed day with the Sydney Jeep Club

Once upon a time, SUVs as we know them today, were the domain of farmers, rural dwellers and off-road enthusiasts. They sat tall on the road and usually on big, thick, knobby tyres that rumbled on the sealed road and dispensed with off-road detritus with ease...

2017 Ram 1500 Night unveiled in America: Big bad truck on local wish list

The 2017 Ram 1500 Night has been unveiled in the US, and it's about as American as it gets. Combining a fair number of things we love about America - size, excess, the wildly unnecessary - the special edition Night package adds a touch of ‘gangsta’ to the already-cool 2017 Ram 1500 Sport...

Isuzu D-Max gets pumped up with help from Iceland's Arctic Trucks

Dig 4x4s? Dig the standard Isuzu D-Max? Then say hello to the Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35. The result of a collaboration between Isuzu and Arctic Trucks – the latter being a company founded in Iceland, boasting 25 years experience developing 4x4 vehicles built to tackle “the most gruelling terrains and conditions” – the Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 is a proper off-roader...


2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Review: Fraser Island weekender

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Review: Fraser Island weekender

If you’ve gone out there and bought an SUV that has actual off-roading credentials in the hope of making use of it, you may have realised after a few years of ownership that you’ve never actually put its credentials to use. This is a common case with SUV ownership, particularly with Toyota Prados that seem to live primarily in the urban sprawl...

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Nissan Navara SUV wagon may never come to Australia

The forthcoming Nissan Navara NP300 ute-based SUV may never come to Australia, despite the popularity of rugged off-roaders in our market. As you can read and see here, Nissan is developing a new seven-seat ladder-framed off-roader to take on the Ford Everest, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X and Holden Trailblazer, based the the NP300 Navara’s chassis as a spiritual successor to the old Pathfinder...

2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited road trip to Moreton Island

Sometimes you just need to pack up and get away from it all. Our guest reviewer - Christian Barbeitos from our video team - did exactly that a few years ago when he moved to Australia, and by his own admission he's still not seen enough of this wide brown land. The Spaniard, as we affectionately call him, asked nicely to get his dream SUV for a long-distance road trip to Moreton Island...

Toyota FJ Cruiser production to end in August

The rugged and retro-inspired Toyota FJ Cruiser off-roader is being discontinued over the next few months, as Japanese production ceases in August after a decade-plus run. Launched late in Australia in 2011, the body-on-frame FJ Cruiser has become something of a cult car, with more than 11,000 sold so far at a rate of 180 units per month — much higher than first expected...

2016 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport: Two- and four-wheel drive modes explained

Read the article here. During regular driving, the vehicle is normally driven in 2H, which is its two-wheel, rear-wheel drive mode. This mode reduces fuel consumption by just sending torque to the rear wheels and also gives you the flexibility of driving on all surfaces. Unlike some of its competitors, the Pajero Sport can also be driven in 4H mode on all surfaces...
