It’s a very exciting time for Isuzu with the introduction of the all-new
D-Max, a model that has been worth the wait. There’s a whole lot more to this Ute, whilst retaining its toughness and durability.
Kiwis not only have the choice of the LX, LS-M and LS, a totally new variant also joins the new-generation of D-Max, the X-Terrain – a higher spec variant.
All models get Isuzu’s reworked 3.0-litre turbodiesel four-cylinder, now producing 140kW and 450Nm. Manual and automatic transmissions will be offered as well as two- and four-wheel drive.
A new rear differential lock comes as standard on 4×4 models and wade depth has been bumped to 800mm from 600mm. Hill-start assist and improved ground clearance round off the major off-road tweaks.
Meanwhile, on-road additions include autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane support (for automatic models only, presumably Isuzu’s name for lane keep assist), lane departure warning, a blind spot monitor and rear cross-traffic alert. Adaptive cruise control will be offered on all variants but only with the automatic transmission.
There’s also a new front centre airbag to help better protect occupants in a side-on collision.
The LX model will come in single cab, space cab and double cab configurations, 2×4 or 4×4 with manual or automatic gearbox options. It gets all of the above active safety gubbins as well as a seven-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The LS-M model is only available as a double cab with four-wheel drive and both transmission options. It adds LED headlights and DRLs to the LX specsheet, as well as 17-inch wheels and a “more luxurious interior trim.
One more step to the LS factors on a nine-inch touchscreen with sat-nav, smartphone mirroring of both Apple and Android flavours, dual-zone air conditioning, rear parking sensors and 18-inch shoes.
Finally, the D-Max X-Terrain is the new range-topper, only available as a four-by-four with an automatic transmission.
Specifications for the X-Terrain include the active safety technology of the other variants plus an eight-way powered driver seat, leather interior trim, smart proximity key with remote engine start, front and rear parking sensors, wheel arch extensions and gun-metal exterior highlights as well as a matte black roller tonneau cover and under-rail tray liner.
