The Warlock's 5.7-litre V8 Hemi engine is a peach, pumping out 291kW and 556Nm of torque - mated to an 8-speed auto.

Having previously reviewed the RAM 1500 in 2020, we recently took the chance to get behind the wheel of the latest addition to the series - the RAM 1500 Warlock.

The D-Max has been updated including getting a 9-inch touchscreen.

While the New Year break is touted as a time to “recharge the batteries” the reality at a rural property is it’s a time to catch up on the to-do list, but with the grey Fergie having a flat tyre, it was also time for a re-think.

 
Land Rover plans to release six pure electric variants through its Range Rover, Discovery and Defender families.

Jaguar Land Rover has announced a new global strategy that will see the Land Rover brand release six pure electric variants through its Range Rover, Discovery and Defender families, with the first all-electric variant arriving in 2024.

 
The new Land Rover Defender is one of the stand-out vehicles to arrive in NZ in the last decade.

Subaru's Limited Edition Outback X.

While many car manufacturers set out to cater for all sectors of the market, it’s fair to say that Subaru has “stuck to its knitting”.

Strong demand for the instantly recognised Suzuki Jimny in New Zealand has continued to accelerate with the 1000th retail order recently confirmed and available shipments pre-sold for nine months.

Having arrived in New Zealand in 2019, the journey for the RAM 1500 continues in 2020 with the introduction of the all-new Express Crew V8 Hemi. 

The launch of the Series 2 HSV SportsCat was an endorsement of the risky decision to take the performance brand into the crowded high-end ute market.

Like many of Toyota’s product ranges, the Hiace series has a history that dates back five decades.

In a move to demonstrate the capability of its vehicles, Holden recently put the talk to one side and ‘walked the walk’.
