The Isuzu D-Max has always had the “true workhorse” image associated with it – thanks to its robust chassis, unfussy appearance, and utilitarian cabin. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, but it means that the lifestyle pick-up truck buyers tend to look elsewhere for something a little flashier to suit their needs, something like the Mitsubishi Triton, or Ford Ranger.
With the new limited-edition D-Max Stealth though, Isuzu has now presented a true contender in this relatively new market segment that buyers should really take a serious look at – thanks to its striking appearance and some neat first-in-class features specifically added to cater for the urban crowd.
Limited to just 180 units, the D-Max Stealth is available in either Stallion Black Metallic (105 units) or Silky White Pearl (75 units). Exterior cosmetic upgrades include a blacked-out front grille, new front lower lip extension with black and chrome details, blacked out roof rails, and Stealth decals all round.
The Stealth Edition also gets a newly-designed 18-inch dual-tone dual-six-spokes alloys with Stealth emblems on all four corners. However, the upgrades aren’t just plainly aesthetic too; at the rear, the Tailgate Assist dampers are fitted as standard, along with a first-in-class powered side step that hides away when not in use, maintaining the clean lines of the pick-up truck while acting as an additional side skirt.
Not only that, the limited-edition pick-up truck also comes with two additional front parking sensors, along with four exterior cameras for the new 3D 360-degree around view monitor feature, which makes navigating a huge truck like this around tight urban areas a whole lot easier.
Inside, there’s the new red leather and black fabric combination seats, giving the interior a much needed dash of colour. The matte silver trims have been blacked out, along with a few other nip and tucks. There’s also the front-and-rear dashcams that come as standard, which again, is added specifically for the road-going pick-up truck users.
What else? Well, we’ll leave it to you to find out from the video.
