Built tough with a go-anywhere attitude, the Landy will get you off the beaten track and into some of the most picturesque locations in this country, quite often so far off the track that you can find places entirely devoid of human life...

Ford Ranger Wildtrak v Toyota HiLux TRD comparison

This really is the battle of the big guns – the most expensive versions of the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, fighting for the title of the sportiest lifestyle ute. They’re both more popular than any SUV on the market, with buyers choosing these high-riding, five-seat vehicles to get around even if they don’t use the tray for its intended purpose...

2003 Toyota LandCruiser GXL (4x4) review

This a totally awesome vehicle. It's excellent for long trips with great comfort and plenty of power. I picked mine up second-hand with 300,000 kms on the clock and she still drives like a new car. It has a had a suspension upgrade as well as a three-inch exhaust. The 1HDFTE is an awesome motor, very reliable and with heaps of grunt...

The driving position is very low and gives you a sensation of been protected, although I can now see under some SUVs...
