With an extensive range of safety features, the D-MAX lives up to our commitment of getting you and your passengers home safely every day. The 4x4 Crew Cab and 4x2 Crew Cab High-Ride models achieve a maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating, so you can begin and end your driving journey with complete peace of mind.
The D-MAX is packed with built-in active safety features that keep you and your passengers safe by helping avoiding accidents.
The D-MAX gives you eyes in the back of your head with a reversing camera. Perfect for tricky parking situations, hitching a trailer or reversing out of a driveway. (Standard on LS and SX ute models - accessory available for cab chassis models.)
The ultimate in active safety. ESC is created by a network of sensors throughout the D-MAX that can detect if you're over or understeering. If so, ESC commands the ABS, TCS and the engine management computer to make sure you stay in control. Intelligent protection, like a third hand on the steering wheel, keeping you safe.
In emergency situations, even the most experienced drivers can panic when hitting the brakes. EBA detects emergency braking and takes over, applying maximum pressure to dramatically reduce stopping distance.
Simple and always effective, ABS ensures your wheels don't lock up when braking in an emergency or on slippery surfaces.
This feature electronically applies the brakes to ensure a smooth, controlled descent, giving you the confidence to tackle the trickiest downhill terrain.
Designed to recognise early signs of dangerous trailer sway, TSC automatically applies the brake on individual wheels, as well as reducing engine torque, to bring the trailer safely back under control.
Daytime running lights help improve the visibility of your D-MAX to others on the road even when your headlights are not turned on. (Available on LS models)
EBD spreads braking power to the wheels that need it most, front or rear, based on the load you're carrying. If the D-MAX is fully loaded, EBD dramatically reduces your stopping distance.
If the D-MAX detects any wheel spin, the TCS applies brake pressure to the over spinning wheels to help restore traction and improve control.
For added driver control and safety, the D-MAX electronic brake control will automatically engage Hill Start Assist to prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients above 5.7 degrees.
While the D-MAX does everything it can to avoid driving incidents, there's a range of built-in passive safety features just in case.
With front, side and curtain airbags, plus pre-tensioner seatbelts that pull you back when airbags are activated, the D-MAX protects you and your passengers from all sides.
Constructed from high-tensile steel, the cabin offers outstanding strength and rigidity, aided by anti-intrusion bars that provide increased protection in the event of side impact.
The smooth lines of the impact absorbing bonnet reduce the chance of injury to pedestrians in a collision.
A large chassis rail cross-section provides exceptional impact energy absorption in the event of a frontal impact.
