Isuzu has updated its D-Max pickup, with improved suspension, increased carrying potential and an updated interior.
All 4×4 models will now come with Trailer Sway Control as standard, using sensors to detect trailer swing and reducing vehicle speed if necessary to bring the trailer under control.
Double-cab rear suspension changes from a five-piece leaf spring to a three-piece leaf, for reduced noise and improved ride comfort. There is no loss of load-carrying capability however; in fact the kerb weight of double cab models has been reduced by 10kg, boosting payload.
In the cab there are updates to trim materials, with gloss black surrounds to window switches, air vents and glove box, all aimed at adding a premium feel. Externally there are new colours on offer and Isuzu claims that rust prevention has been improved, with stronger steels and slower corrosion rates.
All of the updates are also included on the D-Max Arctic Trucks AT36 model.
The D-Max range is powered by a 1.9-litre turbo diesel engine, delivering 164bhp and 360Nm of torque. The engine boasts 40mpg economy and meets Euro 6 without AdBlue.
