The Isuzu D-Max range has expanded and offers a more convienant driving experience

Isuzu has expanded the D-Max range in South Africa with five new automatic models added to the line-up, offering a more convenient driving experience.

For the first time, the Isuzu D-Max 250 X-Rider will be available in a 5-speed automatic gearbox. It became crucial for Isuzu to introduce an automatic gearbox to the popular D-Max 250 LE and the D-Max 250 Hi-Ride double cabs, data shows that we’re in a buying trend of preferring two pedals over three. New to the double cab Hi-Ride is the 3.0-litre automatic paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.


The X-Rider now has a total of three 4×2 double-cab models on offer, either with the new 5-speed automatic gearbox or the existing 5-speed manual.

The D-Max X-Rider LE and Hi-Ride models feature the existing 100 kW 2.5-litre turbo-diesel engine. The Hi-Ride line-up is paired to a 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine returning 130 kW and 380 Nm of torque.


The entry-level D-Max 250 Hi-Ride Auto is now offered in an extended cab form at an affordable price. This gives customers an extended cabin and doors that offers improved access to the area behind the driver. This would be the perfect choice for farmers and contractors, making driving a pleasure with the new 5-speed automatic gearbox.

In the double cab line-up, buyers have the option of the D-Max 250 Hi-Ride or LE series as well as the D-Max 3.0-litre Hi-Ride 4×2. All are able to seat five occupants and can carry a weight load of over a ton. The Hi-Ride has safety and security features but is a more basic model with 16-inch steel rims.
