Following up with the announcement last week on the arrival of the all-new third-generation D-Max this month, Isuzu Malaysia has now published a new page on its website, detailing some of the preliminary specifications that we’ll be getting on our local model here. Among which, Isuzu has now provided a full list of the advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) that will make its way onto our Malaysian-specification D-Max on “selected variants”.

Here’s the full list of advanced driver assistance features that will be available on the all-new Isuzu D-Max:

  • Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with Turn Assist
  • Pedal Misapplication Mitigation (AT variant only)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go (ACC)
  • Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Automatic High Beam (AHB)
  • Blind Spot Monitor (BSM)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

The ADAS suite on the upcoming all-new D-Max is pretty much as good as it comes for pick-up trucks in our region, surpassing that of the new Toyota Hilux Rogue, Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton, and even the all-new D-Max in Thailand – the latter only comes with the blind spot monitor and rear cross traffic alert systems.

Rounding off the list of safety features on the upcoming all-new Isuzu D-max include seven airbags, manual speed limiter, multi collision brake, ABS with EBD and brake assist, ESC, traction control, hill start assist, hill descent control, front and rear parking sensor, reverse camera, and emergency stop signal.

The all-new Isuzu D-Max will be offered here in Malaysia in a variety of configurations including single- and double-cab variants, powered either by a 1.9-litre turbodiesel mill (first introduced here in the facelifted second-generation model), or a revised 3.0-litre engine.

Pricing is estimated to be between RM89,000 and RM145,000 depending on variant, and subject to government approvals. Excited yet? Not too long to go until we get to see it in the metal – but for now, you can register your interest on the ROI page here.
