Isuzu launches 5 new D-Max models in South Africa – Pricing and specifications

Isuzu has expanded its sixth-generation D-Max Single Cab (SC) family with five new models in South Africa, bringing the range up to a total of 10 derivatives.

As a result, the two-door bakkie is now available in the more premium “LS” trim level as well as with the higher-output 3.0-litre engine.

Up to this point, both these options were exclusively reserved for the extended and double-cab D-Max body styles, confirmed our sources at Duoporta vehicle information specialists.

What’s new

The new D-Max SC LS grade offers more amenities than what was previously included on the workhorse, assuming the form of a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four extra speakers for a total of six, cruise control, a multi-information driver’s display, daytime running lights, and side steps.

This is on top of equipment already found on the lower-end L variants, such as a multifunction steering wheel, manual aircon, hill-hold assist, hill-descent control, ABS, two airbags, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

In addition to the new LS specification, buyers of the D-Max SC can now get the bakkie with a 3.0-litre, turbocharged diesel engine whereas it was previously only sold in 1.9-litre guise.

The larger mill puts out 140kW and 450Nm and is exclusively paired with a six-speed automatic gearbox which returns a combined fuel consumption of 7.6-7.8l/100km.

Rear-wheel drive and 4×4 versions of this powertrain are available, with the 4×4 models getting a rear diff lock as standard.

Payload capacity for the 3.0-litre variants is pegged at 1,160kg and they are capable of towing a maximum of 3,500kg – which is a considerable 1,400kg more than 1.9-litre single cabs.
