Isuzu has revealed the second facelift for the Isuzu D-Max pickup in Thailand. This is the second-generation of D-Max pickup that arrived back in 2011 and had received its first facelift in 2015.
Isuzu has inverted the radiator grille for a fresh look. Like the old Isuzu D-Max, its headlamps have L-shaped daytime running lights. The new grille flows into the headlamps for a more aggressive styling. The fog lamps have new vertical garnish on the outer side of the bumper while the front skid plate is carried over from the old D-Max. However these differences may vary based on the configuration & trim levels.
The interior design of the 2018 Isuzu D-Max is carried over from the pre-facelift models. The brown upholstery is new to the D-Max though. Isuzu has not revealed specifications of the new D-Max yet however it is believed that some revisions to the equipment in the different configurations have been made.
The D-Max is available with RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre (150 PS/350 Nm) and 4JJ1-TCX 3.0-litre (177 PS/380 Nm) diesel engines. More details about the 2018 Isuzu D-Max will emerge on 11th November.
Ghandhara Industries Limited (GIL) has made a Technical Assistance Agreement with Isuzu Motors Limited (Thailand) to assemble and sell the Isuzu D-MAX pick up in Pakistan. GIL is expected to launch the Isuzu D-MAX in Pakistan by the mid of 2018 with an approximate price tag of Rs. 2.5 million to Rs. 3 million.
