Downsized UK-spec Isuzu D-Max (KB) priced

07.04.2017

Having debuted in the United Kingdom in February following upgrades in Australia and South Africa, Isuzu has divulged complete pricing details of its revised D-Max pick-up.

Although featuring the same exterior changes as its Aussie sibling and the locally built KB, the D-Max does away with the European specific 120 kW / 400 Nm 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel for the same BluePower 1.9-litre oil burner used in the MU-X, albeit with a 40 Nm decrease in torque and unchanged power output.

Mated to a six-speed manual or similar ratio automatic gearbox, Isuzu claims the D-Max still retains its 3.5-ton towing capacity and ability to transport up to one-ton despite the smaller engine.

Available in single, extended or double cab configurations, the interior also differs slightly from the KB with the integrated touchscreen infotainment display making way for a seven-or nine-inch freestanding setup, equipped with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and DAB+.

In a further departure from the KB, the D-Max range, bar the very basic single cab utility, comes standard with four-wheel drive, which allows the shift from two-wheel drive to be conducted at speeds below 100 km/h.

As mentioned previously, Isuzu is unlikely to bring the BluePower to South Africa as a replacement for the popular but dated 2.5-litre D-TEQ engine soon, while it still remains to be seen whether the flagship 3.0-litre D-TEQ mill would benefit from the same torque upgrades as the Australian D-Max.
