Updated 2018 Isuzu D-Max Coming With Better Tech And Quality

An updated Isuzu D-Max will be available for UK customers starting October 1st, boasting enhanced specs and improved quality for the interior.

Safety systems such as the Trailer Sway Control are now standard on all 4×4 versions, while the automaker has changed the double cab suspension from a 5-piece to a 3-piece leaf spring setup, thus improving ride comfort and reducing noise levels.

Other changes include a 10 kg (22 lbs) reduction in weight on double cab models, resulting in a payload increase of 10 kg. Also available are three new exterior colors in Spinel Red, Sapphire Blue and Galena Grey. Meanwhile, the range-topping Blade version will now be available in four colors thanks to the addition of Obsidian Grey and Spinel Red.

The truck’s interior has also been refined, with updated soft pad designs to the arm rests, binnacle and utility box lid. There’s also gloss black trim on the window switches, air vents and glove box, the latter now also featuring a new Isuzu D-Max badge.

Powering the updated Isuzu D-Max range is a turbo-diesel engine delivering 164 PS (161 HP) and 360 Nm (265 lb-ft) of torque. It is said to meet Euro 6 emissions regulations without requiring AdBlue.

Customers looking to land a new D-Max will have to pay at least £16,799 (exc. VAT) for the entry-level 4×2 Single Cab version, whereas the flagship Blade will set you back as much as £29,799.
