Frontier, is that you?

What better way to tease an impending product update than to subtly slide it into the reveal of another product. Well played Nissan! The image in the presentation, which shows some Nissan designers staring 'Ferris Bueller style' at some conceptual drawings on the wall (totally natural and candid), features a row of three utes that represent Nissan’s global pickup range.

A guide to bargain hunting in the SUV segment

The Australian new-car market is showing signs of recovery. Pundits were forecasting another sharp decline, in the region of 20 per cent, as per previous months affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.

2021 Chevrolet Corvette: GMSV dealers holding more than 100 orders a year ahead of arrival

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette has received more than 100 orders in Australia a year before it is due in local showrooms – and before anyone knows the price –according to dealer sources. The iconic US sports-car is due in Australia by this time next year as the first ever factory-built right-hand-drive model. The right-hand-drive production process was made easier for the eighth-generation Corvette since it switched to a mid-engine layout after decades of having a V8 under the bonnet.
