Comparison: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Suzuki Jimny take on the LandCruiser

For all their foibles, warts and all, these three 4X4s remain beloved in the hearts of off-roading enthusiasts old and new. But, out of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, 2019 Suzuki Jimny and 2019 Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier', which is most capable and our favourite off-road? Find out, right here.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Overland review

Buying a Wrangler isn't a decision based on a strong form of logic. It comes from another place; the other part of our body that has a say in these kinds of decisions. You’re looking at one because you want it, not because it makes sense from a practical or sensible point of view. The good news is the JL Wrangler is much improved over the JK, especially the interior, infotainment and general refinement...

2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon v Toyota LandCruiser v Suzuki Jimny off-road comparison

Here we have the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Suzuki Jimny and Toyota LandCruiser 79 Series 'Troopcarrier'. Which is most capable and our favourite off-road?

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...

Jeep Australia cuts service prices – on most models

Jeep Australia has slashed the price of servicing its SUV range by as much as $1370 over a five-year term in a bid to “enhance customer trust”. While the company’s Australian arm already offered a capped-price servicing plan that set the maximum cost per visit, the new program is cheaper. It’s designed to lure new buyers, because as the company says it covers “each 2020 Jeep model”...

Jeep commits to right-hand-drive and rebuilding trust in Australia 

US car giant Jeep says it has no plans to walk away from right-hand-drive markets – even though its rival General Motors will retreat from Australia, Thailand and New Zealand by the end of 2021 after getting out of the UK, South Africa and India over the past three years...

2020 Jeep Gladiator pricing higher than expected, starts from $75,450 plus on-road costs

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8 (4x4) review

If you are a V8 or muscle car fan, but love the practicality of a SUV, then step this way, I have found a car you might want to check out: The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Since I was a kid, I was brought up in a Holden-dominant family, which was what sparked my love for HSV. So as soon as I turned 18, I bought my first HSV; a ‘98 VT GTS...

2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (4x4) review

Stepping into my new 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited after years of driving a 2003 T30 Nissan X-Trail definitely highlighted the advancements that have swept through the car industry in the past 10 years...

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (4x2) review

If you've ever compared the market on mid-priced SUVs you will know its a hot segment, and the competition is growing in the area. When we purchased the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo we had a reasonably flexible budget to work with and could afford to go up to a luxury SUV if we needed to get the mod cons and comfort we wanted...

2018 Jeep Compass Limited (4x4) review

I bought this car because I always wanted to own and drive a Jeep, and the diesel Compass ticked every box on paper. In driving and ownership for nine months, though, it's been a bit of a mixed bag. Performance is what you would expect from a diesel: a bit slow to get up to speed, but holds that speed at low RPM, which makes it very economical on the highway (consumption goes below 5L/100km)...
