The D-Max X-Terrain
The main highlight of the new D-Max is the range-topping X-Terrain variant, which arrives with a revised 3-litre engine that has been re-engineered and refined with numerous advancements to improve performance and engine response while reducing noise and vibration.
The new engine that produces 190PS ensures that X-Terrain drivers enjoy more relaxed performance from its revised torque curve that peaks at 450Nm from as low as 1,600rpm, stretching all the way till 2,600rpm while the new 6-speed automatic gearbox matches the gearshifts to the new engine’s performance characteristics.
Built on a new Isuzu Dynamic Drive Platform, the all-new Isuzu D-Max employs a new ladder frame that offers improved stiffness and strength to ensure better handling and durability. Coupled to a new suspension configuration and a longer wheelbase that allows the engine bulk to be located further behind the front wheels, the result is a more dynamic handling and comfortable ride.
Finished immaculately in Valencia Orange or Sapphire Blue, the X-Terrain comes with exclusive features including remote engine start, rear differential lock, wet wiper system, brown leather seats with 8-way electronic adjustment including lumbar support, a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen panel that incorporates Android Auto and wireless Apple Carplay.
New driver assistance features
There is also an arsenal of Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) including Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Turn Assist, Pedal Misapplication Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with stop & go function, Automatic High Beams (AHB), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Manual Speed Limiter (MSL) and Multi-Collision Brake that applies the brakes should any of the seven airbags be deployed.
Joining the line-up of the all-new Isuzu D-Max are two Premium variants – a 1.9-litre 4×4 Auto and 3.0-litre 4×4 Auto.
Aimed at the discerning motorists whose applications lean towards daily duties, the Premium variants are an ideal model for drivers who spend significant hours in the saddle as the new comfort features and safety equipment in the cabin make it ideal for hours of fatigue-free motoring.
1.9-litre engine is still there
For the price conscious, there are two offerings of the Standard models available. Powered by the immensely-capable 1.9-litre engine that produces a hefty 150PS of power and 350Nm of torque is paired either with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox, the Standard models are a boon for the business community who aim to lower running costs and maintain good efficiency.
Also available will be two Single Cab models offered with either the 1.9-litre or 3.0-litre engines. These go-anywhere, do-anything trucks offer significant carrying capabilities and come with an array of safety features that has earned this vehicle and the entire range of Isuzu D-Max a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating.
The X-Terrain comes exclusively in Valencia Orange or Sapphire Blue while other models share a choice of the colours including Silky White Pearl, Mercury Silver, Onyx Black and Splash White.
