Isuzu D-Max

The Isuzu D-Max is a dual-cab ute designed in Japan and built in Thailand.

It was first revealed in 2002 and has now entered its third-generation, which recently went on sale in Australia.

It starts at just under $29,000 for the two-wheel drive cab-chassis version, while the brand's only other offering, the D-Max based MU-X, starts well above it at just under $43,000. 

Isuzu offers the D-Max with a single four-cylinder diesel engine that's been revamped. It's paired with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission and a drivetrain that offers either four- and two-wheel drive.

Four-wheel drive variants include dual-range gearing as well as rear differential lock in line with rivals like the Volkswagen Amarok. The D-Max compares with dual-cab utes like the Mitsubishi Triton, Mazda BT-50, Ford Ranger and Nissan Navara in market. 

Base SX variants score 17 inch wheels, manually adjusted air conditioning and a reversing camera, but stepping up to the range topping X-Terrain adds front parking sensors, 18-inch wheels and dark grey body pieces. The LS-U and LS-M mid-variants provide a mix of specification to suit tastes and budgets.

Five-seat Crew Cab variants also score two ISOFIX seat anchorage points.

When is the new Isuzu D-Max coming out?

The 2021 model year Isuzu D-Max arrived at dealers in August in preparation for sale in September, debuting upgrades to safety, a new diesel four cylinder engine and higher levels of infotainment technology.

How long is an Isuzu D-Max?

The D-Max comes in a variety of lengths that differ by a small margin based on specification. The cab chassis D-Max stretches 5285mm long whereas the Cab Ute bodystyle measures slightly shorter at 5265mm.

Does the Isuzu D-Max have differential lock?

All four-wheel drive variants of the Isuzu D-Max are equipped with rear differential lock to boost its off-road credentials, this can be switched on via a button inside the cabin. It pairs with a dual-range feature on the four-wheel drive system that allows either low- or high-range gearing. 

Is the Isuzu D-Max the same as the Holden Colorado?

The Isuzu D-Max and Holden Colorado once shared a same platform but the new D-Max shares its underpinnings, engine and body structure with the new 2021 Mazda BT-50 instead. The D-Max and BT-50 instead differentiate on their interiors and variant specification.
