Isuzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd has introduced the 3.0L D-Max single cab, the only single cab pick-up truck that comes with a 3.0 litre turbodiesel engine in Malaysia. The new addition expands the existing D-Max double-cab and 2.5L single-cab line-up in Malaysia. The 3.0L D-Max single cab is powered by a 3.0 litre turbodiesel engine that produces 177 PS and 380 Nm of torque. Power is sent to all four-wheels via a five-speed manual transmission.
Both 2.5L and 3.0L single cab now comes fully equipped with advanced driving safety features such as Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Traction Control System (TCS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Hill Start Assist (HSA).
Other prominent improvements found in the D-Max is the new heavy duty leaf spring. The suspension aimed to better endure the load even when the vehicle is used under the harsh road conditions.
All D-Max single cab comes with bold and rugged front fascia that suits its purpose as a heavy duty vehicle. The new front bonnet, front grille and front bumper designs embrace the toughness of the vehicle and complement its overall look. To further enhance its exterior and interior look, the new 4×4 decal is designed for this pick-up and it comes with a new meter cluster with Gear Shift Indicator (GSI).
Isuzu Malaysia Executive Director, Hajime Machimura said, “The D-Max single cab has always been the preferred choice for heavy duty purposes. We are committed in ensuring that our cars are the first choice for customers when it comes to the most powerful and safest single cab in the market. We are now the only brand that has a 3.0L single cab. Additionally, in this segment we foresee that there will be high demand especially for the agriculture, timber and plantation industries in Malaysia.”
The 3.0L D-Max Single Cab (for commercial use only) is available in Magnum White Solid colour and it retails from RM90,250 (on-the-road price inclusive of GST and insurance).
