Why Toyota HiLux vs Ford Ranger is the new Commodore vs Falcon battle

The Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger have been our top two selling vehicles outright for the past three years in a row, as Australians continue to embrace utes in huge numbers. And the Toyota HiLux has held the number one spot for four consecutive years, since 2016 when it became the first ute in Australian automotive history to top the charts. The shift to double-cab utes comes as they have become safer, roomier, better equipped, and more like an SUV to drive.

Is there an electric Jeep Wrangler on the horizon?

Plans for an electric Jeep Wrangler are still under wraps, but the off-load icon appears to be edging closer to a battery-powered model. A senior Jeep executive believes electrification could even make for a better Wrangler – and the option is probably inevitable. “I truly believe that if we do an electric Wrangler, sometime in the future, that would actually be a better Wrangler,” said Mark Allen, the Detroit-based design boss at Jeep, during a video conference with CarAdvice this week.
