The Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel engine delivers a massive 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, matched with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Using highly-advanced Isuzu common-rail diesel technology this balances the power with superior fuel efficiency. The end result is outstanding performance to tackle any hill, overtake on the freeway and tow what you like without constant visits to the fuel station.
The heart of D-MAX is the Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo diesel engine. With over a century of specialist engineering experience, the D-MAX is more than ready to handle whatever you throw at it.
The D-MAX is built to tow without breaking a sweat. Load up the back with all your gear, hitch up a boat, caravan or trailer - take whatever, wherever. With 3.5 tonne towing+, the truck-based chassis of the D-MAX gives you the ability to tow pretty much anything you can throw at it.
Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol engines. The D-MAX is so fuel efficient because our engineers have decades of experience in commercial transport, where every litre counts.
High pressure Common Rail fuel injection gives the most power while minimising the fuel required in the combustion process, and boosting economy.
The D-MAX Variable Geometry System (VGS) constantly adjusts to achieve optimum air compression from low revs, which ensures minimal fuel consumption with maximum torque across the rev-range.
The D-MAX has undergone vigorous testing to ensure a low drag co-efficiency (Cd) figure and the most aerodynamic body design yet. Low drag not only improves fuel efficiency, it reduces cabin noise for a quieter, more comfortable ride.
