It’s Amelia with a review of the latest 2018 Isuzu D-MAX in the top LS-T 4×4 Crew Cab trim.

It received improvements in suspension setup, torque figure, some safety perks, exterior colours and interior perks. The Isuzu D-MAX is the number one selling ute in Thailand and is quickly growing in popularity here in Australia as well.

The engine is a 3.0 litre turbo diesel with 4 cylinders that produces 130 kW of power and 430 Nm of torque. The D-MAX has the same engine that can be found in the MUX and it’s good.

n this review, Jenny checks out the latest 2018 Holden Colorado Z71 4×4 Ute. Probably a category Jenny had never considered before but the Holden Colorado impressed her enough to make her think that maybe she could own a ute.


Australia loves the Hilux! It’s highly capable, versatile and tough. And in this video, Simone tells you all about it.

Last year the Ranger was the second most sold vehicle in Australia. The Ford Ranger looks rugged, macho and reliable. But it’s looks are well complemented by its capability.
