Overview

Isuzu D Max is company’s second offering in the market. The D max is available in two versions- Flat Deck and the Arched Deck. The Flat deck is the basic pick-up which has an absolutely flat back and has very basic styling. The Arched Deck is more stylish and feature loaded. It is two-seater and has good amount of space behind them for storage.

The Isuzu D-Max caters rather well to both commercial and private pick-up truck segments by being a premium life-style pick-up truck that can serve the needs of it’s customer base.

The exterior design of the Isuzu D-Max has subtle design cues, with straight lines and mild curves. Overall the truck is a good looking vehicle that has a form over function design language.

The interiors of the Isuzu D-Max, like the exteriors have an extremely functional and simple layout. The quality of plastics are good for it’s segment. They are finished in a shade of light grey while the centre console, door pad arm rests and the interior casings of the ORVMs are finished in black with a plain texture. The D-Max Space Cab arched deck comes with a single-din Kenwood stereo that has good sound quality and is hooked to four speakers and two tweeters. The HVAC controls are located at the lower section of the centre console but are easy to operate nonetheless.

Isuzu is known world over for its engines. And it’s D-Max pick-up truck comes with a rather potent oil burner. The engine in question is a 2.5 litre common-rail direct injection diesel engine, codenamed as 4JK1-TCX. The engine has done duty in a number of models world wide and is a tired and tested product.

The engine develops 136PS of power @ 3,600 rpm and 294Nm of torque between 1,800 rpm and 3,200 rpm. The motor is smooth for a unit that does duty in a pick-up truck and power delivery is linear. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox that is nice to operate and gearshifts are considerably light and accurate for a pick-up truck. The only speck on that is otherwise a commendable powertrain combination is a slightly heavy clutch, but it’s nothing you can’t live with and will get used to quite easily.

There is some turbo lag below 2,000 rpm and the first two gears have short ratios in the interest of better driveability under heavy load conditions. Once past the 2,000 rpm mark, the engine pulls cleanly and slotting through the gears is a joy as power keeps coming in strong to the 3,600 rpm mark post which it starts to tail off. Give the truck a long enough stretch and keeping the throttle pinned in the Isuzu D-Max saw the speedometer needle go past the 170 km/h

Ride comfort is good over most bumps, although raised surfaces such as speed breakers and such that get the better of the D-Max’s suspension as the ride turns quite bumpy when the truck is unloaded. Otherwise cushioning from the suspension is good and the D-Max is a comfortable vehicle to drive around in.

The D-Max is very confident in a straight line and while the power steering unit does not offer adequate feedback, it is accurate. The light steering makes the Isuzu D-max very easy to drive despite the large dimensions of the truck. There is a fair amount of body roll, but otherwise the Isuzu D-Max sticks to its line with tyres squealing for grip, never once phased by it’s pace and gives you plenty of leeway while carrying faster speeds around bends. 

 

Interior

 Cabin is roomy and plastic quality is average, Fit and finish of the dashboard is neat and the use of durable materials means everything should last for a long time in here.

Exterior

 D-Max Arched Deck is better looking than the Flat Deck. The designlanguage puts form over function.

Mileage Running Cost

 Maintenance cost of the D-Max is fairly good.

Comfort Suspension

 Ride quality is very basic. It is bouncy over country roads.

Engine Performance

The engine has enough power and is good to drive.  

Braking Safety

 Brakes are good. Truck with full capacity also takes corners well.
