Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain Updated With More Features

The Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain has been given some convenience updates with the new features aimed to further enhance user comfort. This flagship pick-up truck had bagged 5 ‘Pick-up Truck of the Year’ titles since its debut a year ago, and continues to prove to be as one of the most capable, versatile and sophisticated trucks in the market today.Isuzu D-Max_X-Terrain_Front_Rear

The new enhancements are chiefly felt or seen in the interior. The D-Max X-Terrain now includes an Around-View Monitor to provide the driver with a 360˚ view of the truck’s surroundings. This feature not only offers a bird’s eye view when the reverse gear is selected, but also features a selectable 3D guide within the 9” central infotainment display to aid in precise parking.

Another new feature close to this is the Qi wireless charging base that sits in the receptacle in the centre console, ahead of the gear selector. This base offers convenient wireless charging for compatible phones while allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted Bluetooth connectivity for music or navigation without draining your phone’s battery.

According to Isuzu, the welcome light is another popular customer request. As such, a set of LED lamps have been included under the vehicle to help illuminate the surrounding foot areas when the doors are unlocked. When used in tandem with the follow-me home lights, the D-Max X-Terrain provides convenient and safe illumination in dark areas.

Furthermore, this is complemented by a set of illuminated scuff plates. These not only help to protect the sills from minor scratches, it also adds touch of style to the D-Max.

For the exterior, it stays largely the same save for the added cameras for the Around-View feature. The biggest change is the inclusion of the Silky Pearl White and Onyx Black exterior colours to the X-Terrain’s option. With this change, the Sapphire Blue colour option has been omitted. However, the popular Valencia Orange is still available.

“The new-generation Isuzu D-Max remains our source of pride as it bridges the gap between how pick-up trucks should perform and what customers desire. The flagship D-Max X-Terrain in particular sought to ensure customers enjoyed some truly stand-out features that make their motoring safer and more pleasurable,” said Isuzu Malaysia’s Chief Executive Officer Shunsuke Okazoe.

Isuzu_D-Max_Interior_Seats“The popularity of the Isuzu D-Max range, particularly the X-Terrain variant remains healthy with many first-time owners reveling in life with a modern pick-up truck. Its inspiring safety, comfort and go-anywhere, do-anything versatility has led to a gradual migration of saloon car owners. I believe that with these new added features and colour choices, the D-Max X-Terrain will continue to appeal to many more who will be tempted to convert,” added Chief Operating Officer Kenkichi Sogo.

To recap, the D-Max X-Terrain is built on the new Isuzu Dynamic Drive Platform and powered by a 3.0L Blue Power turbo diesel engine with 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque @ 1,600 – 2,600 rpm. This is paired with a new 6-speed automatic transmission which matches the shifts to the engine’s performance characteristics to give it a more relaxed performance.

Other notable features exclusive to the X-Terrain include remote engine start, rear differential lock, wet wiper system, brown leather seats with 8-way electronic adjustment including lumbar support, infotainment system with Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, as well as Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS). The ADAS features include Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Turn Assist, Pedal Misapplication Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with stop & go function, Automatic High Beam (AHB), Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Manual Speed Limiter (MSL) and Multi-Collision Brake which applies the brakes should any of the 7 airbags deploy.

The updated Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain is available for booking immediately at all authorised Isuzu showrooms. Deliveries are expected to start in mid-July. The updated Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain sees a slight increase in its retail price. On-the-road price without insurance is now RM146,938.40 (Peninsular Malaysia), RM148,561.10 (Sabah) and RM148,330.70 (Sarawak).
