WHAT’S COM­ING IN 2017

4 x 4 Australia - - 4cast -

CAR com­pa­nies are pretty good at keep­ing their fu­ture prod­ucts un­der wraps, so we don’t know what is com­ing for sure.

Toy­ota is the master of keep­ing se­crets, but the 200 Se­ries Land Cruiser is now 10 years old and the Prado 120150 se­ries has been around for 15 years, so both of those key ve­hi­cles are up for re­newal.

We can tell you Isuzu will be drop­ping re­freshed ver­sions of its D-max ute and MU-X wagon in the first quar­ter of the year, with up­dates to the en­gine to meet EU emis­sions stan­dards.

The fifth-gen­er­a­tion Land Rover Dis­cov­ery gets its global launch in Q1, so we could see that here be­fore the year is out. The only other new 4x4 of in­ter­est that we know of will be the Jeep JL Wran­gler, which is ex­pected in the USA to­ward the end of 2017 – but it’s not ar­riv­ing here un­til 2018. The dou­ble-cab pick-up and diesel vari­ants of the Wran­gler will not reach us un­til 2019.
