New Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain Impresses

By John McCredie After taking the D-Max LSU for a drive last week, this week we are having a drive of the top of the range D-Max X-Terrain. The X-Terrain features coloured guard flares and matching coloured grille. It also has a nicely matched and sleek Aero bar on the back with a roller tooneau cover.  The tub also comes lined, but as we’d find out after our off road trip, the roller cover and [...]

Middle of the Road – Hyundai Tucson Active 2.0 litre Auto

By Jon Thomson At some point in our evolutionary history our DNA was corrupted and as a race we decided that SUVs were a better proposition for personal transport than small hatches or wagons. It must have been a quirk of evolution, because, if you apply logic, there could be no reason why we would swap smaller more efficient cars with ones that are heavier, offer no more space internally and have a higher centre of [...]

Silverado Strikes Gold – Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71

By Jon Thomson There is probably a reason why our cousins in the US call vehicles with a tray behind the cabin, trucks and not utes as we do. That is probably because, unlike our utes, their pickups are mighty big and are trucks in reality.

If you are reading this and you know the D-Max well, you will need to re-acquaint yourself, because the MY21 model is a [...]

Navara – Fierce Warrior

By Jon Thomson Australia is in love with dual cab utes, it can’t be stated more clearly than that. Once the province of tradies and council inspectors, one tonne dual cab utes are now morphing to fill so many different niches in the market these days, making them attractive for everyone from families with a couple of kids  to young blokes and gals looking for an alternative sports car, to grey nomads towing caravans, off road [...]

Putting the new Kumho MT-71 to the test

For those who follow our YouTube channel or regularly read our articles, we recently reviewed the Kumho AT51 all terrain tyre that we’ve been running on the OTD Pajero for some time. We really like the AT51, so when Kumho released a new Mud Tyre, we asked them if we could have a set to test them out and they were generous enough to provide a brand new set of their MT-71’s for us to [...]
