Ford Everest Titanium gets new wheel option for off-road comfort

The Ford Everest Titanium now offers the option of a smaller 18-inch wheel and tyre package for those who want all the features and technology of the flagship variant with the full off-road ability of lower-spec versions.

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...

2018 Toyota Landcruiser Prado revealed: Here in November without V6 petrol

The newly-updated 2018 Toyota Landcruiser Prado has been revealed at this week's Frankfurt motor show, with the Japanese carmaker putting an increased focus on safety for buyers of the rugged off-roader. Outside, a refreshed exterior is highlighted by a revised – and decently chrome-heavy – grille, restyled headlights, re-profiled fenders, and a potentially polarising new bonnet, which Toyota says has been sculpted “to enhance downward visibility”...

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. Welcome to the expansive Simpson Desert, a largely flat landscape of, well, not very much...

2017 Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 revealed

We loved the previous iteration of the Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 so much, we couldn't contain our excitement when the new 2017-spec version was revealed for the UK market. Said to have been “engineered to shine in the most gruelling conditions,” the 2017 Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 is the uber-tough product of a collaboration between the Japanese car and truck maker and Icelandic 4x4 specialists Arctic Trucks, and follows in the mighty off-road-sized footprints of the 2016 Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 GXL review

See the full article here. As far as updates go, the few that have been added to the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 200 Series GXL are very much low key. The GXL now comes with DAB+, an updated audio interface and steering wheel audio controls? You want more? Well, there isn’t any…...

The country's seventh-best-selling dual-cab utility, the Mazda BT-50, has had its infotainment package upgraded, with the fresh addition of a new system from well-known electronics company Alpine.

Off-road racing truck tackles go-kart track - VIDEO

An off-road racing truck has been given access to a go-kart track in the US, and it’s every bit wicked. The two-wheel-drive Pro 2 truck that races in the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Championship was driven by Pro 2 and Pro 4 champion, Carl Renezeder...

2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute review: Long-term report five – off-road

As we made clear in our load-lugging piece on the 2017 Toyota LandCruiser 70 Series ute, the thing is a beast when it comes to getting away from the blacktop. I mean, consider this: 70 per cent of these hardcore Toyota trucks are sold in regional areas, and the real percentage of regional users is probably higher than that, because farmers, miners and other customers might have a particular city dealer that they’ve remained loyal to for a while...

2017 Mercedes-Benz G300 CDI Professional launching in August

The Mercedes-Benz G300 CDI Professional is set to launch next month, with the stripped-out version of G-Wagen, er, wagon joining the single-cab utility at the low-end of the pricing spectrum. The exact price is still to be determined, but it is expected that Mercedes-Benz Australia will position the four-seat wagon variant of the G300 CDI line-up will sit close the cab-chassis model, which is listed from $119,900 plus on-road costs...

2018 Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi revealed as French marque eyes third straight Dakar win

Winning the treacherous Dakar Rally is a massive achievement in its own right. Winning six, then, is pretty damn respectable. Now though, Peugeot has revealed its latest off-road rally weapon it hopes will secure its seventh overall, and third straight, Dakar victory: the Peugeot 3008DKR Maxi...

2017 Toyota Fortuner Crusade review

You have plenty of options in the seven-seat SUV space if you're in the market for a Toyota - but there could well be smarter options than this top-spec Fortuner Crusade.

Read the full article here. There are plenty of choices out there for buyers after a seven-seat SUV, and the Nissan Pathfinder is one of the most popular ones. Now, with the introduction of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder line-up – which has seen a big mid-life update with a new look, revised drivetrain and strong pricing – the new range will undoubtedly remain a popular choice for customers in a segment that includes some thoroughly impressive options, like the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Kluger, Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 review: Long-term report three – off-roading

The last time we checked in with our 2017 Holden Colorado Z71, it was getting kitted-out for off-road adventures. Now, we didn’t go all-out throwing the full ARB catalogue at it just yet – but as I’m sure you’ll agree, it does look the part. So, it can talk the talk, but now it’s time to put its extra kit into practice off the beaten track...

Road Trip: a country drive through the Southern Highlands in the 2017 Toyota Kluger GXL

Escaping the city is always a treat. Breaking free of the hustle and bustle to enjoy the fresh air and picturesque farmland inspires a sense of freedom that puts a smile on my face. We recently headed south-west of Sydney into the Southern Highlands for a CarAdvice video shoot, which gave me the opportunity to spend a couple of days getting to know the 2017 Toyota Kluger GXL outside of its usual urban surrounds...
