The Isuzu D-MAX nameplate has been in the country since 2003 and over the years has proven to be a favorite among Filipino families due to its durability, reliability and fuel efficiency. 

Now on its 3rd generation, the D-MAX model has seen significant changes in its design, performance and safety features. But even with all these modern alterations, it does not stop Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) from leveling up their line-up with the introduction of its New D-MAX Limited variant, that is set to entice the market of what is yet to come to the D-MAX model in the country.

A perfect combination of style and performance, the new D-MAX Limited breaks the barrier between work and play, as it can easily be driven from the city to any weekend off-road adventure – giving its customer the pleasure to unleash their inner drive.

“The new Isuzu D-MAX Limited makes the already appealing D-MAX pick-up even more attractive to those looking for added character on their vehicle. Designed with uniqueness and individuality in mind, this vehicle is fit for those with a deeper passion in life, especially the adventurous type,” said IPC President Tetsuya Fujita.

The D-MAX is confidently driven by the well-informed and those that are established in their career. And just like its owners, this model is a champion in different fields – on the terrain, dirt and pave road – as it is always ready to serve the demanding lifestyle of its customers.

New Sleek and Sporty Design

Very noticeable to the new D-MAX Limited is its newly designed Blackout Grille with an eye-catching red Isuzu logo accentuating its front, with the same red accent carried over to its new front bumper guard giving the DMAX a more distinctive and macho appeal. On its side, the D-MAX Limited supports a gray streak body graphics with red limited logo that extends all the way to its tailgate, giving it additional character while driving on the road.

Completing its aggressive exterior is this newly designed Sidestep Board, for non-slip easy ingress and egress of its driver and passengers. Anticipating the active lifestyle of the owners of these variants, we also gave this variant a newly designed premium DMAX Limited Carpet, made with high quality material, providing a premium look and protection inside the cabin. 

IPC also announced that all of these exterior and interior accessories are designed by Isuzu Accessories and Service Parts, Thailand (IAST), so their customers can be assured of the quality and durability of these accessory package.

Improved Driving Performance

Running on the reliable 3.0L 4JJ3-TCX Blue Power engine, the new D-MAX Limited is capable to produce 190PS maximum power and 450 N-m maximum torque enough for any adventure. Add to that, the new variant now has 17” Satin Black Finish Alloy Wheels fitted with a 265/70 R17 All-Terrain tires that is coupled with a Monotube Nitrogen Charged Performance Shock Absorber with rigid rear shackles - increasing its ground clearance to 260mm, while still providing the vehicle stability, and control even when traversing challenging roads.
