our boldest bakkie yet.
The all-new ISUZU D-MAX range offers 24 new models built to conquer whatever the wilderness or urban jungle throws your way. Each ISUZU D-MAX bakkie is forged from decades’ experience manufacturing locally-engineered bakkies that deliver durability, reliability, and capability. Now with a BOLD new approach, ISUZU D-MAX bakkies feature the latest in automotive design, technology, comfort, and safety. You’ll travel a long way to find a better bakkie.
bold is UNCOMPROMISING
With a choice of a 1.9- or 3.0-litre turbo-charged diesel engine under the hood, ISUZU D-MAX bakkies boast more than enough power to conquer mountain passes and urban jungles. Whether your next BOLD adventure is a weekend offroading, a road-tripping family holiday or navigating school drop-off and pick-up, an ISUZU D-MAX will take you there.
The upgraded 3.0-litre Ddi engine has been optimised for more torque at lower engine speeds, superior pull-off and acceleration, significantly reduced noise levels, and optimised fuel consumption. It delivers 140 kW of peak power at 3,600 r/min, with maximum torque of 450 Nm from 1,600 to 2,600 r/min. Our 1.9-litre Ddi engine is a new powertrain added to the ISUZU D-MAX range. Replacing the 2.5-litre engines found in earlier Single Cab models, it uses common rail direct injection to produce a maximum power output of 110 kW at 3,600 r/min, with peak torque of 350 Nm available between 1,800 and 2,600 r/min. The result - superb fuel economy and low running costs.
Boosted Off-Road Performance
In addition to boosted power across the all-new ISUZU D-MAX range, you can look forward to a revised body and frame with increased strength, new front and rear suspension with a longer wheelbase, and a new wider and tougher chassis. Now with a wading depth of 800mm, water crossings are a breeze. On- and off-road performance is further enhanced by electronic rear differential lock and overall improved ride and handling.
Smart, ‘gradelogic’ transmission prevents over-revving and unnecessary fuel burn by ensuring that the new ISUZU D-MAX bakkies stay in the best gear for the terrain.Overall weight reduction also contributes to excellent fuel consumption at just 7.9 litres per 100km depending on prevailing conditions and driving habits(please see range brochure for more information).
On gravel track or smooth tar, expect a smooth, comfortable driving experience in one of the all-new ISUZU D-MAX bakkies.Noise and vibration levels are reduced thanks to added insulation and improved door seals.
Allowing you to fully master your environment, the 4X4 models in the all-new ISUZU D-MAX range feature a Terrain Command Dial that allows for instant switching between 2WD-high and 4WD-high modes at speeds of up to 100 km/h.
bold is REFINED
The all-new ISUZU D-MAX features sleek and aggressive front and rear fascias for a strikingly distinctive silhouette. The bigger-than-ever grille and signature dragon eye motif of the front lights will keep you looking back after you’ve parked. Minimised panel gaps and an integrated two-step rear bumper that seamlessly flows into the body round off the upmarket, sporty look of the all-new ISUZU D-MAX. Exclusive features such as aero sports bars add a confident expression of style.

BOLD IS SELF-ASSURED
Driving comfort has been elevated across the new ISUZU D-MAX range. The bakkies are bigger and more spacious, with the wheelbase 30mm longer to optimise cabin structure. With smart, sophisticated cabins and luxury ambience, you’ll be forgiven for thinking that you’re driving a high-end passenger car, rather than a bakkie.
Throughout the all-new ISUZU D-MAX range, ergonomics have been enhanced for all frequently-used functions. For example, the centre console between the front seats is higher and wider, making gear shifting easier.
