newer isn’t always better

WE JUST got back from exploring the South Coast of NSW and I’d forgotten how remarkable this part of the world is. Beautiful beaches, rolling green hills, rugged coastlines and forests to explore are just some of the things about this place that will get me back there next summer.You’ll see more of it in our next 4x4 Adventures’ DVD series.Something else that hits you on the South Coast is the fresh air as it blows in from the Tasman Sea. Whether you’re on the coast or in the hinterland the air is invigorating, encouraging you to tour with the windows down. Something you never get living in the cities.In our convoy we had Ron Moon’s old TD42-powered GU Patrol, a 2017 Toyota Hilux and the Ford Ranger Raptor.…

2019 jl wrangler specs and pricing

FCA AUSTRALIA has revealed the specs and prices of the JL Wrangler, which is appearing in some Oz Jeep dealers already but won’t officially go on sale until April or May. The JL will be available in both short-wheelbase two-door and long-wheelbase four-door variants, with a choice of the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 petrol engine or the 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel. Both engines are offered with the eight-speed automatic transmission only.Sure to disappoint many Wrangler buyers is the fact there will be no manual gearbox offered in Australian Wranglers, nor will we get the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol or the 3.0-litre diesel V6 engine offered elsewhere. There’s also no SWB Rubicon model.The cheapest JL Wrangler is the SWB Wrangler Sport S at $48,950, which is a considerable step up in entry…

disco svx canned … for now

THE ARRIVAL of the uber off-road version of the new Discovery – the Discovery SVX – that was first announced in 2017 is not happening, with Land Rover terminating the model before a chunky wheel has been turned off-road in anger.This announcement follows other sad news for cashed-up Landy-philes: the recent deletion of what was to be a limited-run Range Rover SC Coupe two-door. Neither announcement is unexpected in light of recent record losses – $550 million – in quarter four of 2018 for JLR. These losses have been attributed to the growing anti-diesel sentiment, a significant drop in sales in China, the political mess of Brexit in the UK, and having to make 10 per cent of its workforce redundant as a result of aforementioned factors. Yep, it’s…

motoring’s night of nights

THE Ford Ranger Raptor was revealed as the 4x4 of the Year at the 2019 Australian Motoring Awards. The event, held at the Peninsula in the Docklands, Melbourne, is the motoring industry’s night of nights.Not only was the best four-wheel drive crowned, but the Wheels Car of the Year (Volvo XC40), MOTOR Performance Car of the Year (Porsche 911 GT2 RS) and WhichCar Style (Audi A7) awards were also presented on the night.The Ford Ranger Raptor received the majority of the judges’ votes – only fractionally ahead of the Ranger XLT, mind you – due to its effortless off-road ability and sophisticated suspension set-up.Tony Jordan, Ford Australia’s marketing communications and brand strategy manager, accepted the award on behalf of Ford.“The team at Broadmeadows and Lara Proving Ground put this…
