Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Track Test

At the end of Part One of our Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison – the Road Test – the 5.0-litre ‘Yank Tank’ was lagging a little behind the 6.2-litre Aussie brute. But things were most definitely still close. Now it's time to sort the men from the boys, and find out which of our two sub-$60k rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered muscle cars should rightfully be crowned the victor: the Ford or the Holden...

Ford Mustang GT Fastback v Holden Commodore SS V Redline comparison: Road Test

What the hell? Why would you put a two-door Ford Mustang up against a soon-to-be-departed four-door Holden Commodore? Well, when there's only 2kW and $2500 between them, why wouldn’t we...? Late last month we got the chance to twin-test our resident long-term 2017 Ford Mustang GT Fastback against the ageing – yet decidedly still entertaining – 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

2017 Holden Commodore SV6 review

I’ll admit, I’m slightly disappointed. You see, this review was originally intended to feature another car. None other than the Holden Commodore SS-V Redline VF Series II. It was to be my first, and potentially my last, blast in one of Aussie motoring’s V8 icons. (I’ve always been more of a Ford man)...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 (4x4) review

This is my second Colorado as the first was very reliable. I went for the Z71 as I am swapping out of my GU Patrol. The appeal for the Z71 was the leather interior and the tech equipment. I love the auto headlights; saves me remembering to turn them off on dull rainy days. The rear-view camera is great and works in combination with the parking sensors...

2010 Holden Commodore Omega review

At the time of purchasing in December 2016, my 2010 VE Commodore Omega had travelled 134,000km. At the time of this review, it had just hit 150,000km. During my ownership, I have had to attend to little outside scheduled maintenance, except for a leaking air-con condenser. Maintenance costs have otherwise been minimal...

2017 Holden Colorado Z71 (4x4) review

I looked around at a new car to replace my Nissan Patrol ST 2010 model, which I have owned since brand new. I looked at the Holden Colorado, Ford Ranger and the Nissan Patrol. I took all three cars for a test drive. At the end of the day I was so impressed with the Holden Colorado Z71. The car has so much power for being a 2.8-litre...
