2019 Toyota Prado, HiAce recalled

Toyota Australia has issued a recall for 2714 vehicles across the 2019 model-year LandCruiser Prado, HiAce and HiAce Commuter model lines, over concerns of a fuel leak. The Japanese manufacturer reports a production fault may cause the fuel inlet pipe that connects the diesel fuel injector common rail may not be secured with a "lower than specified tightening torque", which "may allow fuel leakage".

Mitsubishi not planning Ford Ranger Raptor rival

Mitsubishi says it has no plans to introduce a rival to the Ford Ranger Raptor ute – or mount a counterattack with a high-powered turbo diesel V6 even though it has access to one thanks to the recent alliance with Nissan-Renault. Ford and Volkswagen are expected to have turbo-diesel V6 power as part of their next generation pickups due within a few years from now, and Toyota is on record as saying it wants to make up for the HiLux’s power deficit.

2020 Nissan Patrol leaked

Images of Nissan's facelifted 2020 Patrol have lobbed online, revealing the LandCruiser-fighter's upright new look. Photos published on Almuraba show how Nissan will apply the design language it's developed across its line of city-focused crossovers to the hulking Patrol off-roader. The V8 four-wheel drive hasn't been given a major styling tweak since launching in 2010, although its equipment levels have been adjusted locally.
