Prior to going on sale in the Spring (in the UK), the new generation, 2017 Isuzu D-Max will have its Public Reveal at the CV Show held at the NEC, Birmingham, from 25-27 April. Apart from featuring subtle aesthetic updates, the new D-Max will come with a brand new 1.9 litre turbo diesel engine, which produces 164 PS and 360Nm of torque.
The engine retains the pick-up’s 3.5 tonne towing capacity and 1 tonne payload whilst claiming to provide a quieter, more refined and economical driving experience. Inside, a range of new touchscreen entertainment systems are available, equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as updated ergonomics and trim quality.
As per previous D-Max models, Shift-On-The-Fly 4×4 is a key feature of the 17MY truck. The rotary dial allows the driver to select four-wheel drive on the move as well as low range gears. New Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist are fitted across the range.

Running costs are kept down by 12,000-mile or 24-month service intervals, five years’ recovery and European cover, a three-year paint warranty, and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty.
