Built on a new Dynamic Drive Platform, all the trims of the new D-Max look distinctively bold and sporty with a more SUV-like stance. The new styling elements do not only enhance the pickup’s looks but also add to its aerodynamic efficiency, says Isuzu. With the 1.9L Standard 6AT trim, there are Bi-LED projector headlamps with DRLs, while in the upper trims, one can find automatic headlights, LED front fog lamps as well as rear combination LED tail lights. Auto-folding side-mirrors and tailgate assist are also available in Premium and X-Terrain trims. 

On top of these, the full-fledged X-Terrain looks different from others with its exclusive Valencia Orange or Sapphire Blue paintwork highlighted by some other exterior bits.

The engine now produces a maximum power of 190 PS (13 PS more) and a peak torque of 450 Nm (70 Nm more). On the transmission front, there is a new 6-speed automatic gearbox that matches the gear shifts with the new engine’s performance characteristics.
