2015 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 3.0L 1

At the launch of the Isuzu MU-X, an updated version of the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 3.0L was also at hand, previewing the new styling tweaks the range-topping pick-up truck will receive after a year on the market. A source at Isuzu Malaysia told paultan.org that the launch is pegged for sometime next month.

Changes are fairly minor, limited to a new front bumper bar, 17-inch six-spoke dual-tone alloy wheels, side steps and composite roll bar. The truck on display also sports a new blue hue (likely Nautilus Blue, a colour found in other markets), which has hitherto not been offered here.

The engine should be unchanged from the mill in the current V-Cross – a 3.0 litre 4JJ1-TCX VGS four-cylinder turbodiesel that produces 177 PS at 3,600 rpm and 380 Nm of torque between 1,800 and 2,800 rpm. Transmission choices should remain the same as well, with either a five-speed automatic transmission with manual mode or a five-speed stick shift on offer. Four-wheel drive is standard with all V-Cross models.
