Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain: A true game changer


When one thinks of pick-up trucks, rattly, smelly and utilitarian functionality usually come to mind.

These trucks are associated with being in the field, where they haul heavy materials all day long.

But when Isuzu, one of the largest and oldest truck makers in the world introduced its third-generation Isuzu D-Max pick-up truck, it was an industry-changing vehicle that showed just why Isuzu has been at the top of the game for nearly 85 years.

The D-Max exudes a sporty yet sophisticated frontal design matched by its rugged lines that flow all the way to its cargo area.

Also, unlike most truck designs, the range-topping Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain was crafted as a complete vehicle rather than merely featuring a collection from the manufacturer’s parts bin.

Details such as the integrated rear bumper depart from the regular chrome add-ons, giving it a stylish look.

The interior of the D-Max X-Terrain is where it truly breaks the mould.

From the luxuriously-finished combination leather seats to the large 9-inch touch screen infotainment screen where drivers can enjoy a selectable 360-degree around view of the vehicle when parking, music through the 8-speaker Live Surround sound system, wireless charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, the D-Max X-Terrain definitely punches way above its weight class.

All the main panels feature soft-touch surfaces while fine stitching on the edges provide the D-Max X-Terrain with its remarkable appeal.

Isuzu’s engineers have been able to endow the D-Max X-Terrain with some remarkable features to make the driving experience more pleasurable and safer than most saloon cars today.

Through its stereo cameras, the Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain can activate Adaptive Cruise Control technology.

This feature takes the fatigue out of driving long distances as it is able to track traffic ahead and automatically adjust the vehicle’s speed accordingly, even coming to a stop if necessary for up to two seconds before resuming its cruise control function.

With its suite of sensors, the D-Max X-Terrain has an amazing array of safety features including blind spot monitor, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning and autonomous emergency braking.

Also, the core safety functions and design of the D-Max was already safe enough to earn the maximum five-star safety ratings from the ASEAN New Car Assessment Programme or NCAP.

With all its amazing comfort and safety features, excellent driving comfort and performance bundled with a modern design and a class-leading 7-year warranty with unlimited millage package, the D-Max X-Terrain certainly is a game changer.
