2016 Isuzu D-Max (facelift) – In Images
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Launched in Thailand on November 4.
Isuzu rolled out the 2016 Isuzu D-Max pickup this month, featuring updated styling, better equipment and an all new 1.9-liter diesel engine. The facelifted pick-up is priced in Thailand between 490k – 1,004k baht.
Courtesy of HeadlightMag, here are some more images of the 2016 Isuzu D-Max.
The Chevrolet Colorado-based pickup gets an updated front-end that features a more aggressive dual-slat grille, redesigned headlight clusters with integrated LED daytime running lights and new 18-inch wheels for the top-spec variant.
The dashboard houses an optional eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Isuzu Connect, while the instrument cluster has a new TFT multi-information display. It also has roof-mounted loudspeakers (world’s first for pickups), and an Isuzu Insight economy driving app that can be downloaded into smartphones.
The biggest change is the inclusion of a new 1.9-liter Ddi diesel engine, which is capable of 150 hp and 350 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 6-speed Sport Shift gearbox. Isuzu is proud of the new engine’s carbon emissions figure that is rated at 161g/km for the commercial-oriented Spark body type.
The new motor replaces the 2.5-liter turbodiesel engine, and is claimed to be 10 per cent more powerful, has 9.4 per cent more torque, is 8.2 per cent faster in 0-100 km/h acceleration and registers a significant 19 per cent improvement in fuel economy.
For more power, Isuzu has retained the bigger 3.0 turbodiesel option in the facelifted D-Max, which produces 177 hp and 380 Nm of torque.
