PETALING JAYA: Isuzu's highly-anticipated third-generation D-Max pick-up truck is arriving in Malaysia later this month, much earlier than its speculated launch next year.
This latest model made its global debut 18 months ago in Thailand and is estimated to be priced from RM89,000 to RM145,000 depending on the variant subject to government approvals.
Isuzu Malaysia's dealership throughout the country are accepting pre-bookings now.
Isuzu Malaysia’s Light Commercial Division chief operating officer Masayuki Suzuki said the fast-tracked launch of the all-new D-Max was made possible through the support of Isuzu Motors Ltd that views Malaysia as a strategic market.
“We are extremely thrilled that this impressive all-new Isuzu D-Max has been made available in Malaysia much earlier than expected.
"As the fifth country in the world to launch this model after its global introduction in Thailand, it stands as testament to the strong commitment from Isuzu Motors towards ensuring that the Malaysian market enjoys the latest selection of choice Isuzu vehicles,” he said.
The new D-Max has been extensively developed to exceed the normal perimeters of a pick-up truck while adding an emotive dimension to its highly dependable and impressively-capable character.
Developed on a design theme of bold and sporty, the all-new Isuzu D-Max presents a strong road presence from its masculine frontal design and purposeful outline that exudes a more athletic and dynamic stance.
With its larger overall dimensions that include a longer wheelbase, more spacious cabin and larger load bed, the D-Max affords owners with all-round improvements to its comfort, space and versatility making this a more desirable truck for every purpose.
Available in a variety of configurations including single or double cab guise and powered by a choice of the award-winning RZ-4E 1.9-litre powerplant or a revised 4JJ-3TCX 3.0-litre engine, the new D-Max range is set to be a game changer for the brand.
Scoring the maximum five-star safety rating in the 2020 Asean NCAP tests, the new D-Max offers a new level of safety to offer improved protection for occupants as well as other road users.
Aiding drivers will be a host of Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) available in selected variants.
