Among the lineup of Isuzu products displayed at the 2014 Thailand International Motor Expo is the X-series lifestyle pick-up. Showcased in the extended cab 'Speed' variant, the X-series pick up was joined by a pair of special edition D-Max vehicles and Isuzu's SUV, the MU-X.

The Isuzu X-series is powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine, and is positioned in the lifestyle category.

The Isuzu X-series range is broadly divided into two models, namely the Speed and the Highlander. Based on the D-Max, the X-series range targets the buyer who's looking for a lifestyle pick-up positioned alongside the workaholic and off-road friendly D-Max.

On the outside, the vehicle gets a bodykit, 16-inch alloys wheels, and X-series specific stickers. And as expected, the cabin is a bit different from the regular version of the pick-up. In the Speed guise, it gets a red accent for the centre console and the door trims and the seats get a patch of red fabric on them. And unlike the better specced Highlander version, Speed doesn't come with steering mounted controls or the touchscreen infotainment system.

Powering the vehicle is a 2.5-litre diesel engine that makes 100 PS (98.63 bhp) of max power at 3,600 rpm and 320 Nm of max torque between 1,800 and 2,800 rpm. It's mated to a 5-speed gearbox as standard, but a 5-speed automatic version is available in the 4-door Highlander configuration, too. In terms of safety, dual airbags, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), and ABS come standard.

The Speed variant on display is 5,190 mm long, 1,775 mm wide, and 1,695 mm tall. It boasts a ground clearance of 200 mm which might not be adequate for proper off-roading, but the X-series isn't made for that, either.
