The newest iteration of the Isuzu D-MAX goes the extra mile with its fuel efficiency and quality performance.

Isuzu Philippines Corporation’s (IPC) latest product—the All new Isuzu D-MAX, has passed its first fuel consumption test.  Posting an impressive result that sets the benchmark for its segment, it is on its way to cementing itself as a top pickup model in the Philippines.

On November 13, Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) tested the All-New D-MAX LS 4×2 with a manual transmission. It covered a whopping 1,985 kilometers on a single full tank. Meaning on 76 liters of fuel, the all-New D-MAX has logged an astounding 26.12 kilometers per liter of diesel fuel.

What contributed to the All-New D-MAX’s fuel efficiency are its top components and ultimately, Isuzu’s 4JJ1-TC iTEQ 3.0-liter Common Rail Direct Injection with Turbocharger and Intercooler diesel engine. The engine makes 146Ps @ 3,800rpm and 294Nm @ 1,400rpm to 3,400rpm, which is reputed for its reliability, durability and fuel efficiency. Isuzu’s new 4JK1-TC iTEQ 2.5-liter Common Rail Direct Injection with Turbocharger and Intercooler diesel engine, which produces 109Ps @ 3,400rpm and 280Nm from 1,800 to 2,200rpm, is also capable of providing optimum power at reduced fuel consumption.

“The All-New Isuzu D-MAX clearly benefits from Isuzu’s 70-year experience with diesel engines, having produced over 23 million diesel engines to date,” said IPC Executive Vice President Takashi Tomita. “This expertise means that reliability, durability and fuel efficiency hallmark any Isuzu product, and are traits that the All-New D-MAX is already showcasing.”

“That the All-New D-MAX surpassed the already impressive record set by the previous D-MAX makes the feat even more notable. This pickup is truly a workhorse that’s ideal for people who need a vehicle for both business and leisure,” Tomita said.

The All-New D-MAX comes in seven exciting variants; LS 4×4 A/T, LS 4×4 M/T, LS 4×2 A/T, LS 4×2 M/T, LT 4×4 M/T, LT 4×2 M/T and single cab 4×2 M/T. To know more about the All New Isuzu D-MAX read this article.
