THE POWER & EFFICIENCY YOU NEED

The Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel engine delivers a massive 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, matched with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.  Using highly-advanced Isuzu common-rail diesel technology this balances the power with superior fuel efficiency. The end result is outstanding performance to tackle any hill, overtake on the freeway and tow what you like without constant visits to the fuel station.

3.0L ISUZU ENGINE

The heart of D-MAX is the Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo diesel engine. With over a century of specialist engineering experience, the D-MAX is more than ready to handle whatever you throw at it.

3.0L Turbo Diesel

The Isuzu D-MAX range is powered by the highly refined Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo diesel common rail engine which offers superior fuel efficiency thanks to low friction, fuel injection optimisation and a large front-mounted intercooler.

This advanced Euro5-compliant unit generates 140kW of power and a peak torque output of 450Nm from a low 1,600 to 2,600rpm. The high levels of torque from a low rpm provide strong take-off and acceleration and aid drivability with consistent torque output through the majority of the rev-range.

6-Speed Transmission

The ‘Rev-Tronic’ 6-speed automatic gearbox with sequential sports mode automatically selects the most appropriate shift and lock-up points according to the driver’s behaviour, vehicle load and road speed.

The 6-speed manual transmissions benefit from a new dual mass flywheel, which absorbs vibrations and torque pulses from the engine for smoother and more efficient driveability and transmission longevity.

TORQUE ON DEMAND

The advanced 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine produces 140kW and an avalanche of torque on demand, with 450Nm available from just 1,600 through to 2,200rpm. This provides exceptional take-off and acceleration with a broad, flat torque band aiding overall drive-ability - also perfect for when carrying a load, or towing up to 3.5T+.

3.5T PULLING POWER

The D-MAX is built to tow without breaking a sweat. Load up the back with all your gear, hitch up a boat, caravan or trailer - take whatever, wherever. With 3.5 tonne towing+, the truck-based chassis of the D-MAX gives you the ability to tow pretty much anything you can throw at it.

OFF-ROAD READY

Dirty, dusty off-road adventure is where the D-MAX really shines, with engineering and technology features that'll keep you going across all types of terrain.

PROVEN FUEL EFFICIENCY

Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol engines. The D-MAX is so fuel efficient because our engineers have decades of experience in commercial transport, where every litre counts.
  • +Braked towing capacity on all D-MAX models when fitted with an optional Genuine Isuzu UTE tow bar kit. ∞Up to 800mm of wading depth on all D-MAX models when travelling at a consistent speed of 7km/h. Water ingress may occur if speed is not maintained or if the vehicle is static in water above 350mm.
