With the restyling of 2016, the 2.5 biturbo engine is replaced by the new 1.9, which maintains the 163 horses of the previous version. The weight of the vehicle is reduced and a new headlight design is introduced, now with LED daytime running lights, as well as new front bumpers. Internally the renovation is total, with a new multimedia system with touchscreen, satellite navigator and a new dashboard for climate controls.
The engine has been completely redesigned to comply with current anti-pollution regulations, thanks to the LNT (Lean NOx Trap) system to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx), without the use of AdBlue.
The chain distribution, the induction heat treatment to reduce wear, the single service belt with self-tensioning and the hydraulic valve clearance adjustment are just some of the improvements introduced by Isuzu.
First to introduce a towing capacity up to 3500 kg, which, thanks to the new TSC function, which automatically reduces the oscillations of the trailer, is possible in complete safety, Isuzu D-Max helps the driver to start uphill thanks to the system HSA automatically maintains a constant descent speed thanks to the HDC system, thus improving vehicle control and the safety of those on board. In addition to this and the aforementioned airbags, the braking system with ABS and the EBD braking load control are standard on the entire range.
