Isuzu D-MAX has long been a favourite Ute because of its robustness and 4WD capability. I drove the top model the X-TERRAIN that has premium features, comfort and advanced technology,
The X-TERRAIN features a number of external cosmetic additions that enhance the appeal as well as a premium interior.
Standard features include a dramatically improved 9-inch infotainment system with DAB+, Android Auto™ and wireless Apple CarPlay®, electronic driver’s seat with additional lumbar support, walk away locking, 8 speaker surround sound system and a host more.
D-Max now comes woth a 5 star ANCAP safety rating across the entire range and the new Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS), means that the D-MAX is now class leading in safety features.
Improvements to the reliable 3.ol turbo diesel powertrain mean smoother driving and better economy. D-MAX has always been a strong off road performer as well as an excellent tow vehicle.
X-Terrain is priced from only $58,990 drive away and is backed by a 6 Year Warranty, up to 7 Years Roadside Assistance and 7 Year Capped Price Servicing program.
