The changes feature a revised fascia with a redesigned mesh grille, redesigned bumpers, and revised headlamps with new LED signatures. The side profile remains pretty much unchanged sparing the new 18-inch alloy wheels.
The rear end gets revised treatment with the most noticeable being the tail lights which Isuzu calls a “triple armor” design.
Inside, there aren’t many noticeable changes other than the new & improved materials, a revised gauge cluster, and an added display for climbing & turning angle information.
