Is there an electric Jeep Wrangler on the horizon?

Plans for an electric Jeep Wrangler are still under wraps, but the off-load icon appears to be edging closer to a battery-powered model. A senior Jeep executive believes electrification could even make for a better Wrangler – and the option is probably inevitable. “I truly believe that if we do an electric Wrangler, sometime in the future, that would actually be a better Wrangler,” said Mark Allen, the Detroit-based design boss at Jeep, during a video conference with CarAdvice this week.

New Suzuki Swift breaks cover ahead of its arrival in a few months

The facelifted Suzuki Swift hatch has appeared online months before it is due to arrive in Australian showrooms. The images of the updated Suzuki Swift show subtle styling changes to the nose and tail. In addition to a flash of chrome in the grille and a different bend in the rear bumper, the 2021 Suzuki Swift is expected to get minor technology updates such as blind-zone warning, rear cross-traffic alert and a digital speed display in the instrument cluster.
