Isuzu is all set to launch a top-spec variant of the popular D-Max V-Cross pickup truck. Also, the SUV will get subtle updates and new features which should make it even more desirable with the SUV buying crowd in India.
For 2018, Isuzu will be giving subtle updates to the D-Max V-Cross. We managed to get our hands on a few spyshots before the popular pickup will be unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo to be held in February this year. Isuzu will introduce a new top-spec variant of the D-Max V-Cross as well. Till now, the SUV was available in just a single variant. The looks will remain the same more or less. The rear will get a re-designed tailgate, along with chrome bits on the bumper. There will be some LED graphics on the tail lamps as well.
The top-spec variant will have LED DRLs instead of fog lamps and will get added features such as anti-lock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), brake assist, traction control and electronic stability control along with dual airbags as well. Isuzu will also update the interior with all-black leather upholstery and a six-way electrically powered driver seat. Also, Isuzu will now offer the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard on both models, which was an optional feature earlier. Those are the updates that we know of at the moment.
The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross pickup will continue to get the 2.5-litre diesel engine that makes 132 bhp of max power and 320 Nm of peak torque. We wish that the manual gearbox could be updated to a six-speed unit as opposed to the 5-speed unit that the SUV currently has. We will get more details about the 2018 D-Max V-Cross as the launch date comes closer.
