Four-wheel-driving : Top 10 tips for beginners

Gone are the days of utes being rugged workhorses used only by tradies from Monday to Friday. Today’s utes are lifestyle vehicles that aim to be all things to all people, attempting to blend their traditional practicality and toughness with the comfort and refinement of passenger cars and the pulling-power and off-road prowess of SUVs...

2016 Australia Day Special - Ford Everest v Holden Sportwagon

Last year CarAdvice held its first ever Australia Day challenge. We pitted a Holden Ute against a Holden wagon and James won.

Read the full review here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOH9_fxlI9w — Watch the Ford Everest take on the Land Rover Discovery in our video review. Toyota Prado — it’s a name synonymous with off-roading and, evidently, astronomical sales. Over 16,000 in 2014 to be exact, for a market share of a little over 15 per cent...

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...

Extra-cab ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Mazda BT-50 v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux

So you don’t want a single-cab ute, and you can’t quite stretch to a dual-cab in terms of budget ... the extra-cab ute is the pick-up truck for you. This style of ute caters to the needs of buyers who want the flexibility of four seats, but tray space closer to that of a single-cab variant...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

2017 Ford Fiesta ST spied at the Nurburgring

The next-generation Ford Fiesta has been spied again, this time at the Nurburgring. However, this particular prototype is mooted to be a hotter 2017 Fiesta ST variant. With the standard Fiesta test vehicle snapped a fortnight ago in the European Alps, this prototype has a visible oil cooler in the front bumper - in addition to the Nurburgring setting behind it - which hints at a high-performance Fiesta ST...

2018 Ford Mustang: 10-speed auto details surface online

It appears earlier reports that an updated 2018 Ford Mustang will launch with a 10-speed automatic transmission option are true, if this latest leak is any indication. Following reports last year that the Mustang will swap its current six-speed auto option for a 10-cog self-shifter, the transmission has appeared on Microcat, the online database that Ford dealers use to look up parts for its vehicles...

2008 Ford Focus XR5 Turbo Review

I thought I'd write a review on this car seeing as I've just sold it after 3 years of trouble free ownership. I purchased it 3 years ago and it was the best car I've ever owned. Beautiful to drive in all conditions (despite the lack of cruise), 100% reliable and cheap to run considering it's a European hot hatch. The best thing about this car was the engine, it's brilliant...

2009 Ford Fpv F6 Review

I have owned around 20 cars in 4 years including three FG XR6 Turbo's. The FG F6 is the most amazing and reliable car I have owned, the power is ridiculous and the comfort comparing this to say a VE Clubsport it smashes it out of the park; faster, better on fuel, better sound system, lighter and one of the best parts about the F6 are the seats...

2015 Ford Fiesta St Review

This is my second review of this car, the first being not too long after I bought it. This one is being written without the rose coloured specs and long after the honeymoon period is gone. This is my experience with the car just a tad over a year down the track... To be completely frank, not a great deal has changed...

2015 Ford Mondeo Trend TdCi Review

This car is astonishing! We opted for the wagon due to family requirements and therefore ended up with the 2.0L 4cyl diesel. With 136kw of power and 400nm of torque, the power is incredible. It accelerates quickly and very smooth with the 6 speed automatic transmission yet delivers us 6.1L/100km average with town and highway driving! Long trips on the freeway we have seen 5...
