Only the Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain and high-spec variants came with reverse camera until now
Isuzu Malaysia today announced that the entire Isuzu D-Max double cab range will now feature reverse cameras as standard. With the inclusion of this feature, parking will no longer pose a challenge, particularly when carrying bulky loads that the D-Max is well capable of.
Before this, only the range-topping X-Terrain and high-specification Premium variants have enjoyed this feature since their introduction, as the base Standard 1.9-litre versions didn’t come with reverse cameras.
However, the high demand from customers has resulted in Isuzu Malaysia deciding to meet the requests from traders who want better safety and convenience in their D-Max trucks.
“With the immense capability of our pick-up trucks, the Isuzu D-Max continues to appeal to those who depend on them heavily on a daily basis. By providing these users with a factory-fitted solution for their parking needs, not only do we help protect their investments, it also ensures that their vehicles continue to remain mobile reliably and safely,” said Isuzu Malaysia’s Chief Operating Officer Kenkichi Sogo.
Isuzu is now the first manufacturer in Malaysia to provide reverse cameras as standard across its entire double cab pick-up truck range. The reverse camera sits neatly in a receptacle next to the tailgate handle and sends crystal-clear images to a new 7-inch touch screen infotainment head unit fitted in the 1.9-litre Standard model.
The unit also enjoys Bluetooth connectivity, offering music playback when paired with modern smartphones.
Catering to the needs of personal communication devices, the 1.9-litre Standard models will now come with two built-in USB ports up front – a Type A and one Type C – offering more charging options to occupants.
The exterior differentiation for the new 1.9-litre Standard models will be from the body-coloured door and tailgate handles that were previously silver in colour. The enhanced Isuzu D-Max 1.9-litre Standard model is available with either a 6-speed manual or automatic gearbox and comes with a marginal price increase of RM1,500.00 over the outgoing variant. Prices start from RM 105,599.20 on the road without insurance in Peninsular Malaysia/Sabah/Sarawak .
