Isuzu has unveiled a new Isuzu D-Max pick-up truck with revamped front grille, new wheel designs, fresh colour options and new interior design.
The 2023 model keeps the mechanical components of the previous model, but gets several cosmetic changes with each of the trim levels receiving the changes.
The most obvious change is the new front grille which will be applied to all new models. The new wheel design, however, will only be added to the All-Purpose and Adventure mdoels in the range – namely the DL20, DL40 and V-Cross trims. The Utility portion of the D-Max line-up will retain their steel wheels.
Joining the D-Max’s colour options are Dolomite White which replaces Pearl White, and Biarritz Blue replacing Sapphire Blue.
The Biarritz Blue metallic paint finish will be available for both Isuzu D-Max DL40 and V-Cross models, while the pearlescent Dolomite White will be reserved exclusive for the top of the range V-Cross pick-up truck model.
On the inside of the D-Max the DL20 gets a more upmarket woven fabric with a new design. The DL40 and V-Cross have also been upgraded with a new leather upholstery.
A locking rear-differential has also been added to the manual 4x4 Utility models.
Speaking about the updates to the D-Max range, Alan Able, Isuzu UK’s MD said: “As a brand, we are always striving for improvement and the New-Look Isuzu D-Max is a testament to that. We have added some significant visual enhancements and new features to elevate the driving experience for our customers. We are taking a step further into the lifestyle sector thanks to this new look, without suffering any compromise to the D-Max’s workhorse heritage and capability. It’s the same substance, with a different style.”
The Isuzu D-Max has been growing in popularity since the number of brands active in the pick-up segment decreased. The expanded D-Max range, which included the Utility models as well as the DL20, DL40, V-Cross and Arctic Trucks model have proven popular alternatives to the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux.
