2017 Ford Focus RS Review

This is by far the best hot-hatch for the money, but it's not without its flaws.

2016 Ford Ranger Wildtrak Review

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak is hot property among Australian buyers, but does the big pick-up really provide the best of both worlds for work and play?

2016 Ford Mustang GT Convertible Weekender

We're right in the middle of winter, and it's around this time that we begin planning summer holidays and escapes from the cold, crispy starts and frosted-over windscreens. Now is also the time to daydream about convertibles and the summer road trips that can be had. We’ve taken the legwork out of that research, by hitting the blacktop in one of the hottest (and few four-seat) convertibles on the market...

It's the last iteration ever of the Falcon V8, and it may be the best yet...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak Review

The Ford Ranger Wildtrak is the current king of the 'lifestyle ute’ segment. It offers a unique look to the rest of the Ranger lineup, and is aimed squarely at buyers who want their ute to work harder on the weekend than it does during the week. We put the Wildtrak through its paces both on and off road to see how it handles mixed-mode use and see whether it is worth its $60-grand price tag...

Read the article here. Buying a new family SUV is a big investment, and choosing the right one is important - especially when you're spending about $55,000. We recently assembled five family-friendly SUVs with off-road ability to figure out which rugged truck managed to double as a practical hauler for mums and dads...

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. This year Dave reckons his learned his lesson and for 2016, he’s opted for the latest version of last year’s winner, the VF Series II Holden Commodore Sportwagon SS V Redline. Mixing things up a little, James has decided to go with the new Ford Everest...

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...

2016 Ford Mustang Fastback GT 5.0 V8 Review

A while ago, I was at a cafe catching up with an old friend of mine from High school, and he was telling me that he had recently got back from India to attend an arranged Marriage. I remember sitting there listening and thinking, who in their right mind would make such a large commitment without knowing or experiencing what they are getting? Fast forward to today, and funnily enough, I have experienced the exact same thing...

2016 Ford Focus TREND Review

The Focus is one of the most underrating cars in the segment offering more power and torque than it's competitors. Even at the base level, it trumps the Hyundai i30, Mazda3, and Volkswagen Golf and others even when you get to their top models in their ranges...

2005 Ford Falcon XR8 Enforcer Review

So it's 2005, Russell Ingall has just won the V8 Supercar Championship, Ford Australia are making good profits under the genius of Geoff Polites and my 10th wedding anniversary where we decided to treat ourselves with our first new car. Barely more than a decade ago - it seems a seismic shift in Australian motoring must have occurred when I blinked...

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...
