Stalwart Isuzu KB receives a new face

04.10.2016

Very much the elder statement in the lucrative bakkie segment, Isuzu has given its venerable KB another round of refreshment with a new front clip and tweaked rear suspension amongst others.

Facelifted just over a year ago with mainly spec level adjustment, aesthetic changes to the KB include a new bonnet, grille and foglights, new tailgate on double cab and extended cab derivatives with a handle integrated reverse camera on the former, projector-type headlights with integrated daytime-running LED's on LX models, 4x4 decals on the loadbox, new 16-inch steel wheels and 18-inch alloys again on the LX.

The flagship 4x4 double cab further benefits with the addition of a towbar, rollbar, roof rails and electric leather front seats as standard. Less prominent, the interior gains a new clearer instrument and gear shift indicator for manual models, while the aforementioned LX again features a push-button start / stop and a 6.5-inch touchscreen display with satellite navigation, Wi-Fi and a DVD player.

Aimed to further refine its ride quality according to Isuzu, two-wheel drive models receive new front and rear dampers with the latter only being made available on four-wheel drive models.

Left unchanged, the KB once again employs a choice of three turbodiesel engines with a five-speed manual standard across the range, and a similar ratio automatic optional on LX models. Base KB's make use of a 2.5-litre mill producing 58 kW and 170 N.m of torque, while those sporting the D-TEQ designation have 100 kW and 320 N.m. Capping the range off, the tried-and-tested 3.0-litre D-TEQ continues to make 130 kW and 380 N.m of torque.

A five year / 120 000 km warranty and five year / 90 000 km service plan is standard across the range.
