Isuzu Malaysia Supports Borneo Safari With 3 D-Max X-Terrain

From the vogue setting of the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week, to the muck of the Borneo Safari International Off Road Challenge, the Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain shows that it is able to tackle the urban and rural.

For this year’s Borneo Safari International Off Road Challenge, 3 units of the award-winning pick-up truck are set to perform duties as the official media vehicles. Sabah Four Wheel Drive Association (SFWDA) President Hj Faez Nordin, who received the trucks from Isuzu Malaysia’s Marketing Manager, Alan Lee, expressed thanks to Isuzu for its continued support of the week-long event that is scheduled to start in the final weekend of October.Isuzu D-Max_Borneo Safari_Faez Nordin_Alan Lee

This year’s event is expected to traverse some of the most difficult terrain in the lower plateaus of Mount Kinabalu, in the region of Kota Belud. While magnificent views of the mountain and crystal-clear river flowing waters are on offer, the rocky and rugged terrain poses a significant challenge to both man and machine.

“An event of this magnitude requires tremendous support both in monetary terms as well as with the use of highly-capable vehicles. We are very grateful to Isuzu Malaysia for providing us with both once again as the event’s Platinum Sponsor and supplier of the official media cars,” said Faez.

The Borneo Safari returns after a 2-year hiatus due to the pandemic, and will be the 30th running of the event. It will also witness the debut of the all-new 3rd-generation Isuzu D-Max with the flagship X-Terrain tasked to conquer the unforgiving jungles of Borneo.Isuzu Malaysia_Sabah Four Wheel Drive Association SFWDA_D-Max_Borneo Safari

“The X-Terrain was selected as the flag bearer as it is endowed with a significant array of electronic driving aids. Coupled with its highly-engineered mechanical components, we believe the D-Max X-Terrain combines the brains and brawn required to become one of the most capable modern off-road vehicles in the event,” said Chief Operating Officer of Isuzu Malaysia Kenkichi Sogo.

The Isuzu D-Max X-Terrain will now follow in the long tradition of service as the official media cars in the Borneo Safari. It succeeds the first and second generation versions of the D-Max which had successfully served in the challenging terrain of the event.

The Borneo Safari will run from 30 October to 6 November 2022.
