Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd has introduced a new variant into their lineup, the 3.0L D-Max single cab, which is the only 3.0L single cab pickup available in the country.
Its engine has a maximum output of 175hp and 380Nm peak torque.
Both the 2.5L and 3.0L D-Max single cab are equipped with anti-lock brake system (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), brake assist (BA), traction control system (TCS), electronic stability control (ESC) and hill start assist (HSA).
Another improvement in the variant is its new heavy duty leaf spring suspension, aimed at enabling the vehicle to better endure loads even when the vehicle is used under the harsh road conditions.
Its design features a new front bonnet, front grille and front bumper, as well as a new 4×4 decal and meter cluster with Gear Shift Indicator (GSI).
Isuzu Malaysia is confident this new variant will be welcomed by professional uses, as this type of vehicle is mainly used for heavy duty purposes.
Its executive director Hajime Machimura said this variant of the D-Max would enable the company to better serve the needs of Malaysian users.
“Last year we remained the number one Commercial Vehicle (CV) operator in Malaysia despite the challenging market outlook.
“In this segment we foresee that there will be high demand especially for the agriculture, timber and plantation industries in Malaysia,” he said.
The company expects to sell over 100,000 units by the end of this year, and aims to maintain its position as top brand in the segment.
The car is available in Magnum White Solid, priced at RM84,543.40 for the 2.5L variant and RM90,250.40 for 3.0L, OTR inclusive of GST and insurance.
