Ford Ranger Raptor warranty won't extend to stunt driving

Speaking to CarAdvice at the launch of the 2019 Ford Ranger Raptor in Darwin this week, chief engineer for the Ford Ranger Raptor, Damien Ross, said that the company is using this opportunity to demonstrate – not encourage – 'stunt driving'.

Sergio Marchionne: A brief history of his time as CEO of Fiat and Chrysler

Sergio Marchionne, head of Fiat since 2004 and Chrysler from 2009, has passed away aged 66 after complications arising from surgery. Known for his straight-talking style, workaholic lifestyle, and love of black wooly sweaters, Marchionne was not a noted "car guy", but his legacy includes turning around not one, but two automakers. He is survived by his partner Manuela Battezzato, and his sons Alessio and Tyler.

We have 'pedigree' on safety - Bosch talks autonomy

Car manufacturers aren't the only ones working on autonomous technology apace. Along with Google and Uber, traditional automotive suppliers are beavering away on their own technology, extending the reach of the systems they already offer. Bosch is one of those suppliers. Speaking with the CarAdvice podcast at an event in Melbourne, Chris Woods, Bosch Australia regional president for chassis systems control, highlighted the company's safety-first approach to the rollout of autonomy.
