Hot on the heels of our D-Max 1.9TD Extended Cab Manual review (click here to read it) we got its more powerful and fancy twin on test.
Bad news, everyone. After a global pandemic, slightly misfiring electricity supply, a possible recession and other turmoil, I’ve identified another evil in our midst: the gentrification of simple bakkies and rustic 4×4’s.
In an automotive realm obsessed with progress and innovation, it’s great to see that some manufacturers are still keeping to their original recipes.
Isuzu nou nader aan mededingers
Suider-Afrika se bakkie segment is vinnig besig om die mees kompiterende motor segment te word. By die dag raak hierdie voertuie meer betroubaar, meer luuks, meer modern, en beter werkesels. Meer en meer vervaardigers sluit ook aan by hierdie mark, wat dit moeiliker maak om ’n groot markaandeel te behou.
Are you thinking of buying a new double-cab bakkie? Well, you have my sincere and undivided sympathy.
Believe it or not, at some point this was the most popular vehicle on our parent company Galimoto Media’s Youtube channel. Not by sheer hits but simply in the number of requests…
PORT ELIZABETH – Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSAF) has expanded its bakkie offering with the addition of an exclusive new flagship model aimed at avid off-roaders, professionals who need to travel to inaccessible places, and city dwellers looking to make a bold statement.
The Isuzu KB bakkie range is dead, long live the new D-Max series! (it’s basically the same…)
What you need to know: Although yours truly isn’t the biggest bakkie fan, someone thought it funny to bring us a whole string of Isuzu pick-ups to test. Starting with KB250 double cabs over “X Rider” 4×2 and 4×4 models, this D-Max denotes the new-and-improved product onslaught from the Japanese commercial vehicle manufacturer.
