Isuzu Shows A 1.9-litre Ddi BluePower Diesel D-Max


Isuzu Thailand recently revealed the 2016 updated D-Max pickup truck with a game changer engine, a new 1.9-liter Ddi Blue Power turbodiesel that replaces the previous popular 2.5-liter motor. The pickup also had a slightly revised exterior design and an improved cabin features.


The exterior design started with reshaped headlights that now comes with LED daytime running lights, new fog light trim accents and a tweaked grill design. There will also be new bumper designs, depending on the variant chosen. The side and rear carries over from the pre-updated version apart from the new 18-inch alloy wheels, shark-fin antenna and a slightly altered tailgate.

Inside the cabin there is a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with a TFT multi-information display placed between the dual gauge cluster. Layout-wise, it pretty much remains the same, though there are new interior trim options available.

The most apparent change on the 2016 D-Max is its engine. In Thailand, the 2.5-liter 4JK1-TCX will be replaced by the new 1.9-liter RZ4E-TC Ddi Blue Power turbo-diesel. It delivers 150 PS at 3,600 rpm and has a torque rating of 350 Nm that is available between 1,800 and 2,600 rpm. Isuzu also claimed that it will be 19% more fuel efficient and will only emit 161g of C02 per km.
