Last week, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC), made an announcement regarding its first ever digital launch, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic national quarantine. Adapting to this so-called “new normal” way of holding car launch events, IPC has successfully brought in via cyberspace the much-awaited 4x4 version of the D-Max Boondock.
Following its return to the IPC stable last year, the 4x2 variant of the D-Max Boondock was well-received by off-road enthusiasts and those looking to add a more utilitarian-type vehicle in the garage. But as expected, most of the consumers wanted the complete off-road 4-wheel-drive package. Fast forward to today, their wishes were granted in a time when such a vehicle with the power and capability to go the distance is needed.
On the outside, the D-Max Boondock 4x4 boasts an aggressive style package. It sports a sizable combo of blacked-out grille and bumper chin panel in front. This is accented by a hood decal that shows an outline of the iconic Mt. Apo.
On the side, the truck features a set of blacked-out rally style 17-inch wheels, wrapped in beefy 265/70 R17 all-terrain tires. It also has steel side steps for easy access and added protection to the pickup body. Its honeycomb design with the “Boondock” logo and Mt. Apo outline is also easy to clean and provides better traction during ingress and egress. And just like its 4x2 twin, the D-Max Boondock 4x4 leaves the trail in style with a flashy “Bookdock” decal on the tailgate to complete the look.
