Isuzu PH Finally Gives Us a 4x4 Version of the D-Max Boondock (w/ Specs)

When Isuzu Philippines released the Boondock variant for its D-Max pickup last year, there were some head scratching: why add a 4x4-centric package to a 4x2? Well, it seems Isuzu’s addressed those complaints, and has now come up with the D-Max Boondock 4x4.

Based on the 4x4 variant of the D-Max 3.0 LS, the D-Max Boondock is fitted with 265/70 R 17 All-Terrain Tires with black alloy rims. Isuzu says this tire-and-wheel package gives added traction across various conditions be it on or off the road.

The ride height is up now to 247 mm, while overall height stands at 1,900 mm. The increase is thanks to a new monotube nitrogen-charged performance shock absorbers. Moreover, it offers faster damping reaction improving the D-Max Boondock’s steering control.

Like the 4x2 variant, the D-Max Boondock 4x4 has steel side steps with a honeycomb design with the Boondock logo. It also comes equipped with a roof rail, cargo extender, rocker panel, over fender, and a massive “Boondock” decal on the tailgate. It also shares the previous 4x2’s all-terrain Yokohama Geolandar G015 tires measuring 265/70 mated to 17-inch black alloy wheels.

Oh, and unlike the 4x2, the 4x4 version gets hood and side body graphics as well. Colors available are: Silky White Pearl, Red Spinel, Titanium Silver, and Cosmic Black.

Under the hood, the D-MAX Boondock 4x4 is unchanged. It packs a Euro-4 emission rated 4JJ1-TCX 4-Cylinder with 177 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque. Great news is that unlike the previous 4x2 version, this particular D-Max Boondock is available in both manual or automatic versions.

The best part is that for its introductory price, the D-Max Boondock 4x4 keeps the price of the “regular” 3.0L 4x4—P 1,725,000 for the M/T and P 1,795,000 for the A/T. So you basically end up getting all the Boondock goodies without paying an extra cent.
