After its successful launch in Manila, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) introduced the latest Isuzu D-Max pickup and Isuzu mu-X SUV with Blue Power engines at the Metro Cebu market.
As such, both models are now powered with 4JJ1-TCX Euro 4 engine that is capable of pumping out 177 PS and 380 Nm of torque. With the Blue Power technology, the engine is said to provide cleaner emission and greater fuel economy, as well as less noise and vibration.
“Cebu has always been a special market for our products particularly for the light commercial segment. With our new Blue Power engines, we are confident that we will maintain, if not surpass our current market share in this region.”
Aside from that, both models received design updates. The mu-X was granted a facelift with Bi-LED headlamp and daytime running lamps. It also gets a revamped chrome radiator grille with aerodynamically-designed front bumper, redesigned 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, and new horizontal type LED rear lamps.
In addition, the mu-X houses a new instrumental panel with multi-information display and an 8-inch entertainment system with USB link and text-to-speech navigation. Adding to its classy interior are premium leather quilt-stitch seats and door trims, as well as blue ambient light and black garnish on doors.
Meanwhile, the D-Max is designed with a piano black interior. This pickup offers multiple USB ports placed at the front dashboard and at the center console.
