Sprint Review: Isuzu D-Max 3.0TD Double Cab 4×4 LX

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.
