Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 'XS-09' by XS Overland
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.
Looks ready to traverse India's toughest terrain.
Off-road tuning specialists, XS Overland, had got their hands on the already off-road capable Isuzu D-Max V-Cross and turned it into a beast ready to traverse India's toughest terrain. It has been christened the V-Cross XS-09.
The V-Cross' front fascia has a bold Ironman 4x4 front bumper with a metal skid plate and bullbar that houses a 12,000 pound towing capable Warn winch kit as well as KC Hilites fog lamps. It also has a fully functional snorkel for increased water wading depths and rides on massive 33-inch Cooper ST all terrain tires, for which the fenders had to be slightly modified. For more ground clearance, the V-Cross has been equipped with an Ironman 4x4 1.5-inch lift kit.
It also comes equipped with ARB air differential lockers, rock sliders, more under-body protection, off-road ready rear bumper, spare Cooper ST tire and traction boards mounted on the roof, and Jerry cans fitted to the truck bed to store additional diesel.
Under the hood is a stock 2,499 cc four-cylinder VGS turbodiesel engine that makes 134 hp at 3,600 rpm and peak torque of 320 Nm between 1,800 and 2,800 rpm. The diesel engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and is available with a shift-on-the-fly 4WD system with low range mode.
