2021 Ford Bronco Sport: meet the tough-looking Toyota RAV4 rival

The Toyota RAV4 has a tough-looking new rival – however it's a US-only model for now, and not likely to be built in right-hand-drive for Australian showrooms at this stage. The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is a medium-sized SUV with the styling – if not the DNA – of a heavy duty off-roader. The Ford Bronco Sport was released in the US today alongside the brand's new rivals to the Jeep Wrangler.

Video: 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 revealed

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 has been unveiled in the US, showcasing a track-focused, limited-edition pony car that cherry-picks from its stablemates. Reading more like a Greatest Hits album, the Mach 1 offers identical performance to the Bullitt, with a 5.0-litre V8 producing 357kW, but using the air intake and 6-speed transmission from the Shelby GT350, and the gear knob from the Bullitt. Many components have also come from the Shelby GT500.
