Jaguar Land Rover buys off-road specialists Bowler

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has bought Bowler, the boffins behind some of the world's wildest Land Rover Defenders. Bowler has been around since 1965, and specialises in creating cars for the rough-and-tumble world of rally raid. Its cars are built in low volumes, powered by either V6 turbo-diesel or supercharged V6 petrol engines. It was the supplier for the one-make Defender Challenge that ran between 2014 and 2016, too. Land Rover has been working with the company since 2012.

Nissan Terra still unlikely for Australia

The Nissan Terra is no closer to being introduced in Australia – in this generation or beyond – because the cost to upgrade it to meet local standards is for now deemed prohibitively expensive. The Nissan Terra is a seven-seat four-wheel-drive based on the Navara ute and went on sale overseas last year. It is a direct rival to other ute-based seven-seat four-wheel drives such as the Isuzu MU-X(D-Max), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (Triton), Ford Everest (Ranger) and Holden Trailblazer (Colorado).
