Isuzu Philippines is Looking to Produce This Special D-MAX Variant
Isuzu Philippines Corporation is previewing a possible special variant of the D-MAX pickup truck at the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS).
Currently unnamed, this particular D-MAX looks to be based off the urban-centric X-Series model with its sporty blacked out grille, smoked headlights, and red highlights integrated in its front fascia. The tougher looks are then backed up by a lifted suspension and larger 18-inch all-terrain tires.
The beefed-up looks are backed up by is mechanicals.
Unlike the X-Series model, this D-MAX shares its mechanicals with the 4x4 LS model. As such, it has a 3.0-liter 4JJ1-TCX Blue Power diesel engine making 177 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque. Surefootedness on any terrain is guaranteed by its four-wheel drive system with Terrain command select dial.
Isuzu says that the D-MAX at PIMS is 100 percent showroom ready. Production is entirely dependent on customer feedback, they say. So, if you think the market deserves a sportier D-MAX, head over to PIMS and have your choice heard.
