The venerable Isuzu D-MAX has long set the benchmark in reliability, durability and fuel efficiency. Its reputation for balanced performance and comfort have been examplary, making it one of the country’s favourite pick-up trucks. Today, the all-new second-generation Isuzu D-MAX sets about broaching new boundries in pick-up truck design with a bigger, stronger, more efficient, comfortable and safer vehicle.“What the original D-MAX did was to set exceedingly high standards in durability, reliability and fuel efficiency.
With the all-new Isuzu D-MAX, the engineers have not only enhanced these core features, the entire package including comfort, safety and performance have also been elevated to new heights,” said CEO of Isuzu Malaysia Kimitoshi Kurokawa.The all-new Isuzu D-MAX sports a larger body and bed, allowing the cabin and cargo area to be significantly more spacious. The sleek new wedge-shaped body profile was created with efficiency in mind. The new shape benefitted from time in the Japan Railway Technical Research Institute’s wind tunnel facilities, the same facilities that develop Japan’s famed bullet trains.
The ensuing result is the lowest coefficient of drag (Cd) in its class, making the all-new Isuzu D-MAX a quieter and more efficient vehicle especially at highway speeds.Apart from its sleek and stylish new exterior, an area that will impress is in the fresh new interior. This capacious and stylishly-finished cabin features key innovations, providing driver and passengers with an SUV-like feel. Every feature has been carefully designed to contribute towards driver and passenger comfort, ease of use and safe recognition. An example is in the position of the four-wheel drive mode selector that was previously mounted on the dashboard fascia. Now, a knurled knob sits closer to the driver just aft of the gear lever, allowing the driver to select the drive mode without needing to take his eyes off the road.
