Tesla Model X tows Boeing 787 Dreamliner - Video

Avid motoring enthusiasts probably remember Volkswagen towing a Boeing 747 with a diesel V10 Touareg. People saw diesel very differently in 2008, and the 747 was still alive and kicking. Now, Tesla and Qantas have teamed up for a more up-to-date take on the same stunt...

2017/18 Jeep Grand Cherokee tow bar kit recalled

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has issued a recall for the WK Grand Cherokee fitted with a tow bar kit, over fears bolts and washers on the kit could come loose while towing.

2018 Toyota LandCruiser Prado Kakadu towing review

In 2017, the Toyota Prado was the biggest-selling large SUV in Australia, with nearly 16,000 finding new homes. Its off-roading abilities are legendary. The Prado sits comfortably in the LandCruiser family, and that badge alone leaves 4WD tracks in a quivering mess. However, most are bought simply as a vehicle to drop off or pick up the kids at school...

Porsche tows its way to a new Nurburgring record

The race to set Nurburgring records reached fever pitch this year, with a glut of attempts (successful or otherwise) from manufacturers desperate to prove their sports car mettle. Porsche was among the crowd of new record holders, but its latest attempt makes the GT2 RS lap look a bit, well, conventional...


2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS towing review

2017 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport GLS towing review

We’ve extensively tested the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport over the few years it has been on sale in Australia. We’ve tested it around town and on the freeway, on country back roads, gravel tracks and even over some pretty treacherous terrain off-road. We’ve compared the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport against key rivals such as the Holden Trailblazer and Toyota Fortuner, among others, and it has impressed us time and time again...

2017 RAM 2500 Laramie

See the full article here. These days it's not uncommon to see dual cab utes towing all manner of large trailers. Horse floats, cars and boats are common as flies in some parts. This is their bread and butter, but with all that weight, you have to wonder how the engine copes long term and that's precisely where the American tank-esque RAM 2500 Laramie comes into its own...


2017 Ford Everest Trend RWD tow test

2017 Ford Everest Trend RWD tow test

I have never owned a Ford, but the Ford Everest went a long way to changing my mind about the Blue Oval. On paper, the Everest appeared to be a capable four-wheel drive option with an engine that afforded some towing ability. That's a big tick. Last year, Ford added a rear-wheel-drive option to the Everest range, and recently it added the Sync 3 infotainment system across the range...

Towing with the 2017 Ram Laramie 2500

These days, it's not uncommon to see dual-cab utes towing all manner of large trailers. Horse floats, cars and boats are common as flies in some parts of this great land of ours. This is their bread and butter, but with all that weight, you have to wonder how the engine copes long term and that's precisely where the American tank-like 2017 Ram Laramie 2500 comes into its own...
