2018 UTE MEGA TEST REVIEW: HiLux v Ranger v D-MAX v Amarok v Triton v Navara v Colorado v BT-50

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Our team have tested eight key contenders (LDV wouldn't give us a T60, and the X-Class hadn't launched in time for this test), to see how they all stack up.

LUXURY OFF ROAD - How much can this Mercedes handle?

The 2019 Mercedes G-Class is HERE. I think I might have said 2018 a few times in the video. But either way, the beautiful redesign of Mercedes' off road power house is here! And its time we find out how capable it is off road. Should the luxurous Mercedes G-Class stick to the pavement? or can it hold its own against the other off road vehicles... There is only one way to find out. I was super impressed with the G-Class.

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor - High-Performance Pick-Up

2019 Ford Ranger Raptor - Drive, Interior and Exterior. - Setting a new benchmark in off-road pickup capability, the Ranger Raptor has been designed to combine Ford Performance DNA with Ranger’s renowned toughness and engineering capability - Ranger Raptor includes standard front and rear Fox Racing Shox shock absorbers to help travel at high speeds off-road and includes increased ride height, wider track and improved approach and departure angles that ensure extreme off-road capability and stability - Innovative all-new Watt’s linkage rear suspension with coilover rear springs helps ensure rear axle lateral stability off-road while also improving ride and handling - New powertrain combination of a 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine and 10-speed transimission has proven durability through extensive testing, offering smooth torque and power through independent turbos and closer gear ratios over a wider overall span - Ranger Raptor has been tested in the world’s toughest conditions to ensure an unrivalled off-road package is offered to astonish and excite drivers The Ranger Raptor powertrain features cutting edge technology to offer more power and torque, better fuel economy, less weight and with off-road specific calibrations for engine, transmission, driveline, steering, brakes and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system. In a revolutionary move to deliver incredible performance and responsiveness, a 10-Speed transmission is combined with a new 2.0-liter Bi-Turbo diesel engine in the Ranger Raptor to deliver a maximum of 213PS (157kW) of power and 500Nm of torque. Ford engineers have tested the new powertrain extensively in order to prove out durability. The Ranger Raptor’s chassis frame is a new unique frame that is specifically designed for the vehicle to travel at high speeds off road and endure the punishment that off road racing provides. Ranger Raptor’s innovative new coilover rear suspension uses a Watt’s link setup with solid rear axle to provide superior lateral control off-road while also helping improve ride and handling. The frame design incorporates new geometry for the large suspension, providing the Raptor DNA increased track and wheel travel. Built to withstand high-impact off-road events, Ranger Raptor’s frame consists of various grades of high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel. The stiffened side-rails are made from increased HSLA grade steel to absorb off-road high speed impacts. The front accommodates strengthened protruding shock absorber towers, while a new bespoke coilover rear suspension with an integrated Watt’s linkage allows the axle to move up and down with very little lateral movement. Two recovery hooks rated at 4.5 tonnes can be found at the front, plus reinforced spare tyre mounting cross-members for the larger 17-inch Raptor rims. The braking system on the Ranger Raptor offers extreme stopping power through new and bespoke components. At the front, twin-piston calipers have been increased by 9.5mm in diameter, while the ventilated rotors are an impressive 332 x 32mm in size. At the rear, Ranger Raptor comes with disc brakes with a brake actuation master cylinder and booster to increase braking performance. The 332 x 24mm rear rotor is ventilated and coupled with a new 54mm caliper. “The standout experience of the Ranger Raptor, hands down, is how far you can push it off-road versus any other available production road vehicle in our markets, and still ride like a millionaire on-road,” said Damien Ross, Chief Program Engineer, Ranger Raptor, Ford Motor Company. “Everything about the Ranger Raptor builds on the already outstanding sophisticated feel and functional capability of the Ranger, and then goes further. From a driving dynamic fun standpoint, it is really an exceptionally special vehicle.” Raptor’s race-bred suspension has been specifically crafted to tackle undulating terrain at high-speed while remaining in complete control and comfort. The Position Sensitive Damping (PSD) shock absorbers (dampers) provide higher damping forces at full jounce and rebound to enable better off-road capabilities, and lower damping forces in the mid-travel zone for a class leading plush ride during on-road trips. These settings are truly calibrated for the best of both worlds. The dampers are exclusively manufactured by Fox Racing Shox with 46.6mm piston for front and rear. Designed for off-road endurance terrain, the dampers, coupled with the long travel suspension, allow for an unsurpassed damping performance off-road and a plushest of rides on-road thanks to Internal Bypass technology. Holding them in place are the forged aluminium upper arms and cast aluminium lower arms to facilitate greater suspension travel and optimized for performance and extreme off-road durability.

Good from a far, but FAR from good.. This $325k GTR is SEMA's most confused build.

From a distance, we were keen to get a closer look at what looked like an incredibly crafted R35 GTR, complete with a twin turbo V8 fed by 8x throttle bodies, massive carbon ceramic brakes, a wild wide body kit and a beautiful bright red paint job. As we got close enough to see the details, we were sorely disappointed, mostly because this car actually had a lot of potential to be very cool, but it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense as a finished package. It has: The aero of a show car (mostly non functional) The power of a drag car The engine of an Indy Lights car The driveline of a drift car (RWD) The brakes of a time-attack circuit car ...? This car can't decide what it wants to be, not to mention: An interior assembled by a school kid Radiator ducting that goes nowhere Mirrors made from left over security cameras And the head unit from a $10 eBay auction.. Yes there are some very quality parts in the build, but there are also some atrocious combinations that make absolutely no sense! We have never "picked" on a build before, and we DO respect people's choice in how they style their build, however there were so many things wrong with this vehicle that it almost was embarrassing to have on display. The interior parts looked like they had been formed in a paper moulding, the exterior looked ok from a distance, but up close had terrible flaws that would have had an extremely negative effect on any aero or downforce. We understand this may be an unfinished project build, however this was showcasing a company's best work, which we later found is actually trying to push sales for a whopping $325,000 USD!? Anyway, let us know what you think in the comments below! FINAL NOTE: The following video is not intended to reflect negatively on any of the companies who supplied parts for this build.
