2019 Ford Ranger: Autonomous emergency braking standard, pressure on other utes to follow

The Ford Ranger is the first ute on sale in Australia with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection and speed sign recognition as standard across an entire range, from the cheapest tradie model to the flagship Raptor. The advanced safety tech – which automatically slams on the brakes in stop-start traffic if the driver isn’t paying attention – is due to roll out on all Ranger models sold in Australia, arriving in local showrooms from June.

Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 spied at the 'Ring

Photographers have snapped a largely uncamouflaged Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 prototype once again, this time doing laps at the famed Nurburgring circuit in Germany. In these latest images it appears the vehicle is pretty much production ready, with the only bits missing being the badging at both ends. This vehicle also appears to be using the base-spec headlights, though we reckon they'd be swapped out for Porsche's flagship LED units with quad-cube signature for production.

Honda NSX drags BMW M5 Competition, AMG E63 S - video

The Honda NSX should be faster than a BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, right? After all, it's a hybrid supercar, and the other two are 'just' four-door sedans. Of course, BMW and Mercedes-Benz have a knack for making their four-door sedans fast enough to scare supercars. With 460kW/760Nm and 450kW/800Nm respectively, the BMW M5 Competition and Mercedes-AMG E63 S are seriously quick.
