<strong>Isuzu D-Max V-Cross</strong>

Isuzu Motors globally launched the second generation of Isuzu DMax in 2012. Isuzu Dmax is also known as Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Chevrolet DMax in other markets of the world. Isuzu D-Max has taken plaudits of rugged vehicle streak in Isuzu Family.

Isuzu’s pickups have always been well-penned and designed. This tradition continues onto the latest D-Max with its classic double-cab pickup shape that’s been given a more modern interpretation.

Isuzu D-Max V-Cross received a substantial update earlier this year receiving new LED daytime running lights instead of fog lamps, LED taillights and a redesigned tailgate. The lifestyle pick-up truck also comes with a new chrome bumper, and side steps as part of the upgrade. The cabin received major updates as well including black leather seats, six-way adjustable driver’s seat, rear view camera and a 2-DIN audio system. The 2018 edition also gets auto cruise control as part of the standard kit.

The High variant comes with cruise control, traction control, a rear-view camera, LED tail lamps and automatic climate control. It also works well as an adventure vehicle thanks to its on-the-fly 4 WD drivetrain powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine (134 PS/320 Nm). The unit is mated with a 5-speed manual transmission. The large rear deck could easily hold a week’s worth of luggage for four.

Flared fenders give the truck a wider and meaner attitude, while the new Bi-LED headlamp configuration coupled with the new grille and bumper give it a meaner looking scowl. This truck has an understated aggression in the looks department that sets it apart from its competitors.

Power on the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross comes from a 2.5-litre diesel engine that produces 132 bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 5-speed manual transmission on the V-Cross that sends power to all four-wheels.
