From the outside, the pick-up sports a number of changes. The front fascia is adorned by a sporty grille, flanked by bi-LED headlight clusters. The fog lamps get a dash of chrome treatment, a metal e Indians love. The side silhouette is enhanced by diamond cut, 18-inch alloy wheels, which come with flared wheel arches, giving an aggressive appearance. The roof rails are new too, so is the shark fin antenna. Isuzu has also integrated a side step to make ingress and egress much easier. The B-pillar gets a blacked-out treatment and the rear side comes with LED tail lamps.
