Ford Everest Titanium v Toyota Prado VX: Comparison 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. So, when Ford Australia announced that the Ranger-based Ford Everest would take on the Prado both in terms of price and off-road ability, we packed our camping gear and hit the bush for some proper off-road driving...

Hyundai Tucson Elite 1.6L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L 4WD v Toyota RAV4 GXL v Volkswagen Golf Alltrack : Comparison review

The recent suite of updates added to the evergreen Toyota RAV4 suggests that the just-released 2016 facelift moves the game forward by a tangible margin for this popular mid-sized SUV range. Sharper styling, a lift in cabin features and finishes, plus improved ride, handling, comfort and safety all carry the collective promise of game-lifting and enhanced value...

Note: Toyota has revised ground clearance for the Fortuner from 279mm to 225mm. Few vehicles attract one-eyed partisanship like the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux utes.

2012 Toyota Landcruiser Gxl (4x4) Review

Toyota dual cab 79 series with 80,000 km on the clock, hoping to add another zero to that over the next 20yrs. What a truck this machine is! Its a shame my overall score rates so low because it doesn't really reflect how much I love this beast. The scoring system is tricky because you are comparing this vehicle to others that I have driven & that is very varied (Merc, Porsche, Audi, HSV) but I wouldn't take any of those to outback Australia...

2014 Toyota Fj Cruiser Review

Excellent on road and off road. Just needs a small front end lift to make it even better off road. Traction control works well in gnarly off road. Only tried diff locks a few times as it is typically not needed. Smooth, quiet, even with Cooper STT mud tyres on it. Front end is a little low due to Toyota wanting to keep CV shafts straight on independent suspension...
