Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux Black Edition : Comparison review

The challenger takes on the champion. That’s the best way to describe this twin test, which puts Australia’s long-reining best-selling ute, the Toyota HiLux, up against the increasingly popular Ford Ranger. The Ford is catching the Toyota in terms of sales: in 2014, there were 38,126 HiLux models sold in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, while a total of 26,219 Rangers were sold (4x2 and 4x4 combined)...

2014 Toyota Yaris Ascent Review

I was recently in the market for a new, more economical car when I stumbled upon the redesigned Toyota Yaris Ascent at my local Toyota Dealer. On the outside it is a great looking little car with its big grill, it sort of gives it a mean look and in my opinion it looks better the previous generations...

Toyota UUV marries ute underpinnings to a people mover body

The Toyota Ultimate Utility Vehicle has the body of a people mover and the off-roading ability of a ute, with a few hints of Mad Max thrown in for good measure. Overnight, Toyota's US arm unveiled the design of its new headquarters in Plano, Texas, about 40 minutes north of Dallas. To spice the affair up a little bit, the company also revealed the Ultimate Utility Vehicle (UUV)...

Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux: Australia's definitive new motoring battle

I was thinking about the great Australian automotive rivalries this week. Falcon v Commodore. STi v Evo. Ferrari v Lamborghini. Specifically, in an era defined by economical small cars and practical SUVs — the latter of which are hardly exemplars of sex appeal — is there room for great Aussie ‘blue corner, red corner’ battlegrounds in our automative landscape?
