The new D-Max pickup gets a sole 1.9-litre diesel engine that produces 163PS (+13PS) and 360Nm (+10Nm). It is offered with 6-speed manual and automatic transmission options as well as 4X4 and 4X2 drivetrains, depending on the variant. The relatively economical 4x2 option is a first for the D-Max range. 

Isuzu D-Max Hi-Lander

The pickup truck will be available in two trims - V-Cross and Hi-Lander (new) - with the former available in Z Prestige and Z variants. The top-spec Z Prestige comes with a 6-speed AT/4X4 as standard, while the Z variant is available with manual (4X4) and automatic (4X2) options. The base-spec Hi-Lander is offered with a standard 6-speed manual and 4X2 configuration. 

The Hi-Lander gets all the basic features, including halogen headlamps, blacked-out outside rear view mirrors, 16-inch steel wheels with covers, manual AC, ISOFIX mounts, rear parking sensors, dual front airbags, and analogue instrument cluster. It, however, misses out on side steps, fog lamps, keyless entry, a touchscreen infotainment system, six airbags, push-button start-stop, and automatic AC which is offered with the V-Cross. 

As for the V-Cross, it retains Bi-LED projector headlamps, LED DRLs and tail lamps, shift-on-fly 4WD knob, push-button start-stop, keyless entry, 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat, cruise control, steering-mounted controls, automatic AC, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment, and an 8-speaker sound system with roof-mounted speakers. 

Safety is covered by ABS with EBD, traction control system, electronic stability control, brake override system hill start/descent assist, six airbags, and a rear parking camera. 

As the sole lifestyle pickup truck on sale, the D-Max faces no competition as of now.
