ISUZU D-MAX PERFORMANCE
D-MAX’S TRUCK DNA GIVES YOU RAW POWER AND PERFORMANCE
Whether in the city or off-road, carrying gear or towing a load, heading up a hill or overtaking on the freeway, D-MAX is designed to give you performance when you need it.
EXCLUSIVE ISUZU ENGINE
The heart of D-MAX is the famous Isuzu engine exclusive to the Isuzu range. The world’s most popular truck engine, in the skin of a ute.
Isuzu are diesel specialists. The D-MAX is powered by the famous Isuzu 4JJ1 diesel engine– the only ute on the Australian market with this under the bonnet. It's the same engine platform that's used in many of Isuzu's light truck range, so when placed in the D-MAX, it's got the power and durability to get even the biggest jobs done.
The secret to producing efficient power is to have a large capacity, under-stressed engine. That's how we give you more power with less fuel.
When you put your foot down you need your ute to respond. The Isuzu engine produces 430Nm of torque giving you fast, smooth acceleration no matter what load you’re carrying.
CHOOSE YOUR DRIVETRAIN
To back up the famous Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel, the D-MAX ute has a range of drivetrain options.
Different people have different needs, so we have a range of D-MAX 4x4 and 4x2 options.
From crawling across a rocky embankment to cruising down the highway, the 6-speed manual gives you total flexibility in all situations.
Want the ute to do the work for you? We've got you covered with a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission (which includes Rev-tronic sequential shifting if you want to take control). Grade logic keeps you in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain.
Driving on road? Choose 2WD. On dirt, beach or gravel? Turn the dial to 4H for more traction. At speeds up to 100km/h, you don't even need to slow down. And if you're going off-road into sand or mud, turn the dial to 4L for extreme traction and ultimate control.
TOWING AND CARRYING CAPACITY
D-MAX is built to work. Load up the back with all your gear, and tow a boat, caravan or trailer. Take whatever, wherever.
Tools? Materials? Equipment? Chuck it all in the back. The D-MAX's truck-based chassis will carry a tonne of gear.
Powerful ute? Put it to work. D-MAX gives you serious towing ability up to 3.5 tonnes+ on 4x4 and 4x2 High Ride models. Boat, caravan or trailer: D-MAX will tow it without breaking a sweat.
