The new facelifted 2017 Isuzu D-Max is the Japanese brand's tough workhorse that's designed to take on any road. It inherited the reliability of the Fuego and its predecessors but with more modern features that are fit to the lifestyle of anyone in the Philippines.
The new D-Max has a notable rear bed size at 1,485 mm x 1,530 mm x 465 mm, which can carry a multitude of large and heavy items. It can also be optioned with an array of accessories like bed covers, camper shells, and more.
Aside from the soft leather seats for 5 passengers, it has automatic climate control and a 7-inch LCD multimedia head unit with DVD/WMA/MP3 compatibility and Bluetooth/iPod connectivity for the comfort and entertainment of everyone inside.
Inside its bonnet is a reliable 3.0L 4JJI-TC (HI) diesel power plant with VGS turbocharger and intercooler, coupled to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-Speed automatic transmission with sequential shift. Performance output reaches 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque – both available in 4x2 and 4x4 variants.
