Testing the off-road limits of the Suzuki Jimny and Holden Trailblazer

Just four hours drive east of the Melbourne CBD, the challenging terrain of the Victorian High Country has cemented it as one of the most iconic 4WD destinations in the country. As a result, the area is at the top of the bucket list for avid off-roaders. Many Australians travel far and wide to find their own little oasis in the region...

Cars We Own: 2017 Nissan Navara SL

Dual-cab utes are all the rage at the moment, with the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux sitting atop the Australian sales charts. Along with those two stalwarts, there are plenty of other worthy load-lugging options on the market – options like our Nissan Navara. It's got coil springs down back, a twin-turbo four-cylinder engine up front, and room for all the camera gear you could ever ask for in the tray...

4x4 Tips: ARB Elements Fridge review

It’s the fridge that can stop people from stealing your beer. Or soft drink, or Manchego, or whatever else you have stored in there. Of course, the ice-cold beer I’m mentioning is enjoyed after you find a nice camp spot and start to unwind for the night. ARB is an Australian-born 4WD aftermarket company renowned for its efforts in innovation, and this fridge is another example of that...

4x4 Tips: Gearing up for the Victorian High Country

The Victorian High Country is a magical place, one of the best off-roading destinations on the planet. It's full of awesome tracks, picturesque camping, and the type of wilderness usually only available when places are hard to get to. If you've got a 4x4, you're well on your way to visiting the High Country in your own time, and on your own terms...

Cars We Own: Modifying the CarAdvice Nissan Navara

See the full article here: https://www.caradvice.com.au/722514/turning-the-caradvice-nissan-navara-into-an-off-road-weapon The 4WD ute is fast replacing the sedan in Australia as the go-to family chariot. 15%, or one in every 6 or 7 vehicles new vehicles sold in Australia, was a 4WD ute. That sort of dominance was only bested by the small car (17%) and small SUV segments (17%)...

Nissan Navara ST Black Edition review: Driving Margaret River

This latest Black edition is based on the ST, but it really stands out. And, in a sea of dual-cab utes, it’s hard to imagine why anyone wouldn’t choose the Black Edition when looking at utes at this price point. I really like the look of it. It has a tough stance on road and more capability off it, which is exactly where it is aimed.

2018 Nissan Navara range review: Dual-cabs compared

The Nissan Navara is the latest in our 'range review' series, and the first ute to be presented in this format. It's one of the market's better-known pick-ups, and one we field plenty of questions on. So, if you've decided you're buying one, which should you consider?

Off-road test: 2018 Nissan Navara ST-X

While it took Nissan three cracks at getting the Navara's ride and handling tune right, the 2018 Nissan Navara Series III builds on what is an already impressive platform that needed some minor tweaks. We've driven and reviewed the Navara previously, but how does it perform as an off-road lifestyle utility? We hit the road to see how it stacks up when the going gets tough...

2018 Nissan Navara range review

We’ve chosen the Nissan Navara as the latest candidate in our ‘range review’ series. As one of the market’s better-known pick-ups, it’s a car we field a lot of questions on – even if its monthly sales can’t compete with the hugely popular Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger...

Mercedes-Benz X250d Progressive v Nissan Navara ST-X comparison

When Mercedes-Benz chose to enter the dual-cab ute market with the new X-Class, it didn’t go it alone. Working partner Nissan lent a hand – and a variety of components from the Navara – to get the job done. The two aren’t exactly the same. The X-Class is more than just a Navara with a three-pointed star on the nose (despite what you might read in our comments), but it’s not entirely different...

2018 Dual-Cab Ute Mega Test

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

2019 Ford Ranger: Autonomous emergency braking standard, pressure on other utes to follow

The Ford Ranger is the first ute on sale in Australia with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection and speed sign recognition as standard across an entire range, from the cheapest tradie model to the flagship Raptor...

Who's making utes for whom?

Car companies have been sharing development costs for years, so it’s hardly shocking to see them doing the same with pickups/utes. For one, we’ve just seen Ford and Volkswagen announce the co-development of the next-generation Ranger and Amarok, due for market launch in 2022. Isuzu and Mazda are also sharing costs on the next D-Max/BT-50...

2014 Nissan Navara D22 (4x4) review

I bought a new 2014 D22 Nissan double cab (you can still buy them new where I come from) after doing about 360,000km in my Mitsubishi Colt (Rodeo) 2.8D. The reason was very simple: I'd just got married and was thus cash strapped, and staying close to the sea and surrounded by mountainous dunes, you cannot be caught without a 4x4...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x4) review

This is an absolutely awesome truck! The ride quality for a ute is amazing. You just gotta love coil spring suspension! It looks the part too. Mine is black, not everyone's choice I guess, but the body shape is accentuated by the dark colour and looks kind of 'Gansta' with the dark tinted windows...

2015 Nissan Navara ST-X (4x4) Review

My Navara NP300 has now traveled 29,000 km. The engine has been getting better and better the more kilometres travelled. I now also only use premium diesel (no truck diesel, engine rattles) Engine a lot quiet now with a lot more power in mid range. The overall fuel economy is averaging 8.4 (car gauge) but the actual figure is 9...

2015 Nissan Navara ST (4x2) Review

I have now almost completed 10,000km in my new Nissan Navara ST Dual Cab 4 x 2 and absolutely love the choice I made. I had a budget of $40,000.00 and test drove all makes of 4 door Utes and got the choice down to the new Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara. The Nissan Navara got me over the line in the end because I thought it was finished off better and a little more refined...
