Mitsubishi operations chief says large SUVs and sedans are ‘dying’

Mitsubishi Motors is banking on SUVs as its future, but the company’s operations chief reckons that even some of those high-riding models are on their way out. Speaking with media in Sydney this week, Trevor Mann, global COO for Mitsubishi Motors, said the large SUV could be on its way out – meaning the Pajero Sport could remain as the biggest SUV you can get from the three-diamond brand when the Pajero (proper!) finally bites the dust.

HSV exports a longer-term desire

Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) has some exciting things coming beyond the end of Commodore production in Australia - including a HSV Colorado - but one idea it has shelved for the short-term is exports.

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor V6: This is the ute you've been waiting for!

Brace yourselves, folks! We've just spied Ford's craziest and most powerful Ranger yet, the Ford Ranger Raptor. As exclusively revealed by CarAdvice in June 2015, Ford is working on a powerful, off-road-focused Ranger with an overhauled the ride and handling setup, expected to be released in 2019. The vehicle we photographed in 2015 was Ford's first prototype of the Ranger Raptor and was likely testing the first iteration of engines, water fording, suspension and off-roading tyres.
