According to the information our team has got, it seems that the second generation of the Isuzu D-Max has been on its way to hit the market as a 2019 Isuzu D-Max model. This pickup will undergo some minor refreshments and updates in terms of design, but also improve its performance and offer some new engine options.
The 2019 Isuzu D-Max is going to make its appearance as a robust and powerful pickup truck with excellent off-road features. It will be available as a two-door and a four-door configuration, offered in three trims. The new D-Max will certainly get more modern and rounded exterior design than its predecessor and undergo some innovative changes, especially in the front fascia. After all, this truck should become a serious rival to models such as the Ford Ranger and the Nissan Navara. The D-Max will also improve its handling, comfort and maneuvering thanks to its double-wish front suspension. The towing capacity of this truck will also be enhanced. As we have already mentioned, most of the updates will happen around the front fascia. You will notice a large chrome grille and newly-designed and sleek headlights with LED daytime running lights. On the other hand, the fog lights and the front bumper with the air intake will remain mostly similar to the current model. Speaking of innovations, the 2019 D-Max will be standing on standard 21-inch aluminum wheels. In the back part of the vehicle, you will find redesigned LED taillights and a restyled rear bumper.
The interior of the 2019 Isuzu D-Max should reveal a refreshed and more comfortable cabin, especially when it comes to front seats. The seats should be supportive and covered in fine leather, at least in higher trims. The driver will get a heated telescopic steering wheel wrapped in leather, a TFT display and an 8.0-inch touch-screen display with the Isuzu Connect World infotainment system. The dual-zone automatic climate control is just one of the numerous next-generation features found in the new D-Max.
Three diesel options will be offered under the hood of the 2019 Isuzu D-Max. The first one comes with a 1.9-liter four-cylinder turbo, able to deliver 130 horsepower and 160 pound-feet of torque. The other one includes a 2.5-liter four-cylinder twin-turbo and its 145 horsepower and 144 pound-feet of torque. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, but also offer a manual shift. The final version, found in top trims, will probably get a 3.0-liter four-cylinder turbo which hits 310 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Isuzu D-Max Release Date and Price
The 2019 Isuzu D-Max is probably going to make its debut at the North American International Auto Show in January, 2018. The estimated price range of this pickup truck is $35,000 – $45,000, depending on the equipment package you choose.
