If you think that truck market today is going to be only dominated by the launching of European and US Company as Ford, Holden, Mazda and Volkswagen, then you are totally wrong, because 2013 Isuzu D-Max from Japan Automaker, Isuzu, is ready to join the competition. Said to be the most effective in its class, 2013 Isuzu D-Max will suit you to trade and agricultural use with a great off-road capability as well.
2013 Isuzu D-Max will come with string and hard body line, as we often find in most of truck design. Coarse wishbone and rear arrangement will suspend its front part, and it could load about 1050kg with braked towing capacity about 3000kg. Compare to Ford Ranger and Mazda BT-50’stotal of 3350kg braking, this car is considered still far behind its competitor for this matter. 2013 Isuzu D-Max offers you a 235mm of ground clearance with four-wheel-drive model, and respectively a 30.0, 22.4 and 22.7 degrees each for its approach, break-over and departure angles. It will come with 17×7.0-inch alloy wheels shod with 255/65 series rubber for its higher model. The front part of 2013 Isuzu D-Max will be equipped with 300mm disc-braking’s diameter, and 295mm measured drums. 2013 Isuzu D-Max speed-sensitive steering wheel is still considered disappointing, because its 12.6 turning circles could be adjusted for tilt only.
Its cabin is fairly good. There are plenty of leg rooms in its front seat, but fewer headrests in the rear side, which will bothers you during a long trip, though three points seat belts are available for both position. Different from the seat’s structure, 2013 Isuzu D-Max offers you with nicer dashboard, handy switch gears, and good ventilation from its pop-out rear windows on the Space Cab. It also gives you cup holders which placed in front of vents and in the center console and doors that is considered more accessible. Unfortunately, 2013 Isuzu D-Max interior and modern features is still far behind its competitor. Even with all 2013 Isuzu D-Max has now as safety features, they could only bring a four-star rating to this truck.
A plus score is given to 2013 Isuzu D-Max for its lower fuel consumption and emission than 2013 Mazda Atenza GT Sound Special. Its powertrain comes from 4JJ1-TC 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with truck 130kw at 3.600rpm and 380nm of torque and channeled through both manual and automatic five-speed transmission.
2013 Isuzu D-Max’s single cab models will be on sale at about $$27.200 and the LS Terrain one will be about $51.700.
