All good things must come to an end. In the case of the Jeep Wrangler, the latest Freedom Edition special-edition model sends the long-running JK series off ahead of an all-new Wrangler set to arrive Down Under in 2019.

2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited diesel review

Premium equipment list, V6 diesel power, properly off-roadable and strong towing promise the right SUV stuff for Oz. But does the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited add up to the sum of its parts?

2019 Jeep Wrangler review: Tacos, burgers and surfboards in SoCal

One of the world’s most closely guarded secrets is when the next Land Rover Defender might appear and what it will look like. No-one seems to know anything, not a single solitary thing. Not when, what, where or how. Nothing. For years, it’s been a total information lockdown, as if Britain’s domestic spy agency, MI5, is running the communications department up at Land Rover’s HQ in Gaydon – at least as far as the next-generation Defender goes...

2019 Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 v Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk comparison

If you want something a little more adept off-road than your typical road-biased SUV, one of these two might fit the bill. Maybe you want to do some off-road adventuring, but you don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. And maybe you’re more realistic about what you’re actually going to do, rather than what you’re aspiring to do...

2018 Jeep Compass review: Rockhoppin' in Tassie

The Jeep Compass was once our lowest-scoring car. Can the new 2018 Compass prove it's now on the right path?

2018 Jeep Cherokee review

The polarising front end is gone, but the same two engines remain. The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is 'same same but different'. It still has the chops, though, to appeal to buyers in the medium SUV segment. See the full article here.  ...

2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk v Land Rover Discovery Sport Si4 comparison

Going off-road is great fun. Something off-road capable can open up a lot of doors to places you were otherwise unable to visit. It changes a vehicle from being a conduit between A and B, into a ticket to adventure. But, having a proper 4WD does come with compromises. Take it from me: while great off-road, my own 4WD is abhorrent to park, loud and noisy, and is eons away from being a capable commuter...

2019 Hyundai Tucson Elite petrol AWD v Jeep Compass Limited petrol

You could say Jeep needs a new Compass. The US 4x4 brand has lost its way in recent years, haemorrhaging sales locally for three successive years. It hasn’t helped that its Cherokee model that launched in 2013 has struggled to fire in the all-important medium-SUV segment...

2013 Jeep Compass North (4x2) review

  I've owned my Jeep Compass North CVT 2013 MY14 from new since purchasing it in Cairns (not many Jeeps there by the way, not like here in Brisbane). We drove the Jeep all the way home too. Two drivers, short stops, and it never let us down. The cruise control and CVT helped a lot...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (4x4) review

It's not the newest car on the market, and it's not the most advanced, but the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is still a great value-packed SUV that can be bought for almost next to nothing on the second-hand market. Okay, so we didn’t buy this Jeep second-hand. My parents bought it brand new on our first trip back to Canberra, not long after we moved interstate...

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland (4x4) review

I bought my Jeep Grand Cherokee because it looked different to most 4x4s on the road and it had great style, comfort and driveability. I like the ease of operating the vehicle, particularly when on an open road using the adaptive cruise control, and the ride is excellent. However, my list of dislikes now outweighs the reasons I purchased the vehicle...

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary (4x4) review

An impressive, reliable car held back by its reputation for customer service. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the sort of car that commands a presence on the road. Its aggressive looks, unashamed size and its reputation for comfort make it an attractive option for people in the market for a large SUV...
