Toyota Tundra V8 pick-up all but ruled out for Australia

The mighty Toyota Tundra V8 pick-up from the US is unlikely to make it to Australia with this generation’s model – or the next – even though the company refuses to formally rule it out. The Toyota Tundra is a rival to the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado in North America – where it is made – but is built in left-hand drive only.

Approximately 4000 Hyundai cars and 6000 Kia vehicles are caught up in the first detection of stink bugs for the 2019-2020 season. Other car brands on the same ships are likely to be affected but are yet to come forward.
