One of the major releases of 2024 for the Australian market comes in the form of the all-new, sixth-generation Mitsubishi Triton.

The Triton goes into battle with fierce rivals like the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Isuzu D-Max with a larger platform, new suspension hardware and a choice of three new turbo-diesel engines.

Peak power and torque figures for the most powerful tune of the Triton’s engine stand at 150kW of power and 470Nm while you’ll still find a low-range transfer case, locking centre differential and Mitsubishi’s Super Select 4WD II system.

Jeep Avenger

With compact SUVs all the rage these days, Jeep is looking to get a greater slice of the pie with a small, battery-electric SUV of its own known as the Avenger.

Set to arrive in the second half of 2024, the Jeep Avenger comes packing a single electric motor pushing out 115kW/400Nm, with juice supplied by a 54kWh battery pack that offers up to 400km of claimed range on the WLTP test cycle.

The cabin has been overhauled in line with its new electric underpinnings, with more interior space and clever features that reflect its special position in the Jeep range as the company’s first pure electric vehicle.

Toyota LandCruiser Prado

One of the biggest new car releases in 2024 is without doubt the latest generation Toyota LandCruiser Prado.

Underneath its futuristic styling package, the next-gen Prado picks up the same TNGA-F platform borrowed from the almighty 300 Series which makes it significantly larger than its predecessor.

For off-road enthusiasts, the next-gen Prado is set to be Toyota’s best yet, with greater wheel articulation, a disconnect for the front stabiliser bar and added ground clearance that will surely make it a beast when it arrives in 2024.

Mazda CX-80

Mazda is set to beef-up its range of hybrid-powered family SUVs in 2024 with the addition of the CX-80 that slips in between the CX-60 and the flagship CX-90.

Like its siblings, the CX-80 will likely come powered by a range of mild-hybrid inline six-cylinder engines and potentially a plug-in hybrid range-topper that adds power while massively improving fuel economy figures for the large SUV package.

Hyundai Santa Fe

Hyundai’s large SUV package, the Santa Fe is set to gain a massive design overhaul in 2024, bringing its family-friendly SUV well into the modern age.

The styling package is matched by a longer wheelbase platform offering some substantial interior space and practicality improvements over the current-gen Santa Fe, while the high-tech cabin looks to be a major improvement over the current model.

Nissan Qashqai E-Power Hybrid

While the latest-gen Qashqai has been around since mid-2022, the early stages of 2024 will see the introduction of the Qashqai e-Power Hybrid, a variant set to offer some massive fuel efficiency gains.

The Qashqai E-Power hybrid comes powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine paired with an electric motor and a small 2.3kWh battery pack, dropping its combined cycle fuel economy figures down to 5.2L/100km.

Kia EV5

2024 marks an important milestone for Kia, who is once again expanding its lineup of battery-electric vehicles with a midsize SUV named the EV5 - a package likely to become one of the best sellers in Australia.

Kia says we can expect to see range figures of around 530km from its 64kWh battery pack, while a long-range EV5 variant may offer up to 720km of driving range per charge and a sporty version may come packing up to 230kW of power.

Inside, the EV5 picks up a sleek, modern cabin layout with a pair of 12.3-inch displays and is set to give buyers looking for a battery-electric midsize SUV some serious food for thought.

Toyota HiLux Hybrid

Toyota has confirmed that a number of mild hybrid versions of the almighty HiLux ute will be arriving on Australian shores in 2024, adding some fuel-efficiency to the ultra-versatile HiLux range.

The HiLux’s updated mild-hybrid powertrain will utilise the same 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, though this time it’s paired with a 48-volt hybrid system, maintaining its 150kW of power and 500Nm of torque while dropping fuel economy figures by around five per cent.

Suzuki Fronx

Suzuki says that we’ll have a brand new compact SUV arriving in Australia, showcasing some fresh design language and, more importantly, adding some hybrid powertrains to its lineup Down Under.

The Fronx is a small SUV that measures in at just 3995mm long and goes into battle with pint-sized rivals like the Kia Stonic, Mazda CX-3, Toyota Yaris Cross and the Mitsubishi ASX.

Volkswagen Tiguan

Volksagen is set to bring a brand new generation of Tiguan to Australian shores in 2024.
