February 2019 issue of 4X4 Australia: what’s inside?

By Tristan Tancredi, 30 Jan 2019 News

4x4 of the Year, X350d versus Amarok 580, customised F250, and heaps more.

4X4 Australia February 2019 issue preview feature

THE 4X4 of the Year will be revealed tonight at the Australian Motoring Awards, but to read about the event in comprehensive detail you’ll need to pick up a copy of our February 2019 issue, in stores January 31.

Our 4x4OTY coverage contains in-depth analysis of all eight contenders, as well as the testing process, where we took them and how we found a winner. Tough Dog came along for the ride with its Toyota Hilux  fitted with the brand’s new airbag-based kit and suspension set-up.

We also managed to squeeze in a V6 tussle between Mercedes-Benz’s X350d and Volkswagen’s Amarok Ultimate 580. Two $70K+ top-end dual-cabs in the Aussie bush … what could possibly go wrong?

The Feb issue also has its fair share of customised metal: a 1988 Hilux turned into a bruising pre-runner; an absurdly kitted-out F250; and a couple of AEV-tweaked JL Wranglers.

-          Rolling over the NT’s Plenty Highway.
-          Going loopy on the Tibooburra Gorge Loop Drive in NSW.
-          We take a microscope to synthetic ropes.
-          A Defender and a Discovery in the 4x4 shed.
-          Readers rigs, products reviews, columns and heaps more. 

The February 2019 issue will be in stores on January 31.
