2020 Isuzu D-Max debuts with new body and engine

After 8 years of flexing the same body, Isuzu’s workhorse D-Max pickup truck gets a complete makeover for 2020. The new truck has been revealed in Thailand with new design inside out as well as a new engine.

The Chevy Colorado-based truck gets a new exterior design which is inspired by the current model but with a way more aggressive demeanor. The headlights are now bi-LED projectors that sit on either side of the massive chrome grill. The tail lamps are also LEDs. There are three body styles available, Regular Cab, Space Cab, and Crew Cab. If you’re flattered by the design, please note. The bling on the model is mostly reserved for the off-road variant, the D-Max V-Cross which is exclusively offered in the Crew Cab 4X4 variant.

The interior is where the D-Max gets the most number of changes. The previous plasticky dashboard gives way to an entirely upscale interior which is crowned by a new 9-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. Safety systems like blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert also finds a seat in this cabin.

Powering this truck is a new 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine with 188 hp and 450 Nm of torque. A smaller 1.9-litre turbo-diesel is also on offer albeit with undisclosed output figures. The power is handled by a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, sending the power to the rear wheels or all four wheels.

At the moment it is unclear what engines will be offered in the GCC-spec version, as traditionally our market has received older less-powerful motors.

For updates on prices and specs, keep an eye on the Isuzu D-Max buyer guide.

  1. Anyone who buys a new petrol driven vehicle is lacking the appropriate education in climate change .
    If you can afford a new car – go green …..
    To buy a new gas guzzling v6 or v8 engine, is simply prioritizing your ego over the planet .
    If you’re young and considering buying a gas guzzler – seriously ……. what are you thinking.
