Jeep Renegade Review

THE all-new Jeep Renegade certainly provides a shock to the SUV marketplace, particularly in the Solar Yellow duco of the test car I recently picked up from Cricks Mt Gravatt. Through all this the very adjustable and comfortable leather seats were quite supportive and after an hour of driving I stepped out feeling fresh. There is very little not to like …

Jeep Cherokee Limited review

If they show up something that close to the car, I’m sorry to say but it’s probably too late for whatever it may be. I guess at very low speed they would be handy for picking out kerbs and other obstacles when parking, but I didn’t notice any difference. The Technology Group package meant my Jeep had park assist, which …

New HiLux – First Tow Test

First impressions of the exterior begin with the bold new look that has more on (and off) road presence due to the larger body, being 70mm longer and 20mm wider, which in turn gives you a great feeling of extra cabin space when jumping inside too. The interior is notably different to the outgoing model. In the models we had the …

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service principal ranger Fraser Coast Ross Belcher said tailor season and September holidays both coincided with dingo whelping season; a time of …

Jeep Grand Cherokee most impressive

Chrome accents abound on the exterior and also within the cabin. This ‘chrome all over’ approach can come off as tacky and try-hard on some cars, but it really gelled with the Grand Cherokee (especially with the black paintwork) and I felt it helped elevate the car to a higher rung on the luxury 4WD ladder. The comfortable leather seats …

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport Review

On the dash you can easily flick (via controls on the steering wheel) between average fuel consumption, a digital speedo, compass and tyre pressure, just to name a few options. The tyre pressure indicator is a very handy feature for those planning on using the vehicle off-road. I actually got to test this feature and had to let the tyres …
