Highest to lowest: Driving from Mount Kosciuszko to Lake Eyre

Sponsored by Jeep Australia is the oldest, flattest and lowest landmass on Earth. While it did have huge mountain ranges once upon a time, millions of years of rainfall, frost and erosion have flattened it out into the incredibly ancient and unique landscape we have today. While they don’t rival others in the world, we do still have mountain ranges...

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk review

Affordable luxury off-road-capable SUVs are hard to come by. Jeep aims the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at buyers that want all of the features and all of the off-road ability. But, is it getting on a little too much? Paul Maric finds out.

The raddest Jeep you've probably never seen

1973 – what a time to be alive. Median house prices were around $35,000, you could buy a Holden Monaro HQ GTS for around $4000, roller-skates were all the rage, and Pink Floyd dominated the charts with Dark Side of the Moon. The world was a psychedelic place, man. And Jeep was right in the thick of it when it released one very special car in America...

Jeep Wrangler: Highest to lowest, choose your path!

Sponsored by Jeep If you're thinking about a road trip, your choice of vehicle is important. This is not something for your low-slung sports car, especially if you're heading into the centre of the continent. You need a bit of ground clearance, and either an AWD or 4WD system will help with the incredible variety of conditions you’ll encounter along the way...

2019 Jeep Wrangler review: Rubicon

It's not a perfect new platform, but the new Wrangler is a huge developmental step forward from the old model. I think you should be buying these and heading as far off-road as you dare to justify the outlay, but it's so much more refined on-road that you can't criticise those who will choose to use it solely around town.

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 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)...

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...
