4X4 Australia June 2016 edition

THIS month, Ford’s Everest Titanium fronts up to Toyota’s Prado Kakadu and Land Rover’s Discovery SDV6, in a top-end tussle. Three massive American pick-ups have also landed on local soil, so we saddle up a Ford F-250 Lariat, a GMC Sierra Denali 2500 and a RAM Laramie 2500 for an all-Yankee stoush.

Plus, we drive the Crew Chief Concept from the 50th Easter Jeep Safari, and we give a super-tough Toyota HiLux an AFN makeover.
