On April 26, 2021, the 3rd-generation all-new Isuzu D-Max pickup truck was officially launched in Malaysia. There will be 7 available variants from Single Cab, Standard Premium, and the top X-Terrain models, priced from MYR 89,000 to MYR 142,000. All of them are fully imported from Thailand, but there are plans for local assembly down the line. The new D-Max which rides on Isuzu’s new Dynamic Drive Platform, arrived with a distinctively bold and sporty outlook.
In terms of powertrain, the existing RZ4E-TC 1.9 liter common-rail four-cylinder diesel engine (with variable geometry turbo) has been refined further and offers better throttle response. Outputs are unchanged, at 150 PS and 350 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the 3.0-liter engine received greater upgrades, including a new engine head and turbocharger. The 4JJ3 engine produces 190 PS and 450 Nm of torque, representing a 13 PS and 70 Nm increase over the older 4JJ1 3.0L unit. Both the 1.9L and 3.0L engines can take up to B20 biodiesel. Also new are the 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions (both tweaked to provide smoother gearshifts), as well as a shift-by-wire 4×4 selector dial.
Isuzu Malaysia unveiled that over 1,000 bookings were recorded even before its official launch. The firm targets sales of the all-new D-Max to reach 6,400 units in 2021.
