Isuzu UTE D-MAX Performance

D-MAX'S TRUCK DNA GIVES YOU RAW POWER AND PERFORMANCE

Whether in the city or off-road, carrying gear or towing a load, heading up a hill or overtaking on the freeway, D-MAX is designed to give you performance when you need it.

EXCLUSIVE ISUZU ENGINE

The heart of D-MAX is the famous Isuzu engine exclusive to the Isuzu range. The world’s most popular truck engine, in the skin of a ute.

Isuzu are diesel specialists. The D-MAX is powered by the famous Isuzu 4JJ1 diesel engine- the only ute on the Australian market with this under the bonnet. It's the same engine platform that's used in many of Isuzu's light truck range, so when placed in the D-MAX, it's got the power and durability to get even the biggest jobs done.

D-MAX Turbo-Diesel

The secret to producing efficient power is to have a large capacity, under-stressed engine. That’s how we give you more power with less fuel.

D-MAX 3.0 Litre Capacity

When you put your foot down you need your ute to respond. The Isuzu engine produces 430Nm of torque giving you fast, smooth acceleration no matter what load you're carrying.

D-MAX Torque on Demand

For precise control over fuel injection timing and the quantity of fuel delivered, common rail technology is unsurpassed. The Isuzu super-high pressure common rail technology ensures you burn minimal fuel while still getting maximum performance, making the D-MAX a highly fuel efficient ute.

CHOOSE YOUR DRIVETRAIN

To back up the famous Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel, the D-MAX ute has a range of drivetrain options.

D-MAX 4x4 and 4x2

Different people have different needs, so we have a range of D-MAX 4x4 and 4x2 options.

D-MAX Manual

From crawling across a rocky embankment to cruising down the highway, the 6-speed manual gives you total flexibility in all situations.

D-MAX Automatic

Want the ute to do the work for you? We've got you covered with a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission (which includes Rev-tronic sequential shifting if you want to take control). Grade logic keeps you in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain.

D-MAX Terrain Command

Driving on road? Choose 2WD. On dirt, beach or gravel? Turn the dial to 4H for more traction. At speeds up to 100km/h, you don't even need to slow down. And if you're going off-road into sand or mud, turn the dial to 4L for extreme traction and ultimate control.

TOWING AND CARRYING CAPACITY

D-MAX is built to work. Load up the back with all your gear, and tow a boat, caravan or trailer. Take whatever, wherever.

Tools? Materials? Equipment? Chuck it all in the back. The D-MAX's truck-based chassis will carry a tonne of gear.

Powerful ute? Put it to work. D-MAX gives you serious towing ability up to 3.5 tonnes+ on 4x4 and 4x2 High Ride models. Boat, caravan or trailer: D-MAX will tow it without breaking a sweat.

D-MAX TOWING AND CARRYING CAPACITY

OFF-ROAD

The D-MAX is built to do work. Load up the cab with all your gear, and tow a boat, caravan or trailer. Take whatever, wherever.

Comfortably tackle any environment with an electronic brake control that automatically engages the Hill Start Assist to prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees). Hill Descent Control will give you the confidence to tackle any downhill terrain, giving you maximum traction.

Our 4x4 models feature steel underbody protection including a steel sump and transfer case guard for extra protection when the going gets rough off-road.

Short front and rear overhangs allow steep approach and descent angles.

The specifically developed Flex-Ride suspension balances firmness (for load carrying) with suppleness, offering a comfortable ride without compromising handling.

Isuzu UTE D-MAX Reliability

BUILT WITH ALL THE VALUES THAT HAVE MADE ISUZU FAMOUS.

D-MAX is robust, reliable, dependable-but also refined. It has the spirit of a truck, wrapped in the skin of a ute.

SUPERIOR ENGINEERING

People rely on you, and you can rely on your D-MAX. The D-MAX is full of engineering details that only a truck manufacturer would think of, but each one makes this ute truck tough. Here are some that are easy to see when you pop the bonnet.

Fancy replacing your timing belt? Probably not - so the D-MAX doesn't have one. Instead it uses a heavy duty steel timing chain to last the life of the engine.

D-MAX Steel Timing Chain

The ladder chassis has been specifically designed for the D-MAX. Its heavy duty design ensures long term durability, and improves stability whether loaded or towing.

D-MAX Ladder Chassis

This unique detail eliminates backlash on engine deceleration, reducing engine wear.

D-MAX Split Camshafts

Isuzu's diesel engines are built to withstand higher temperatures and pressures than other engines, so the D-MAX 3.0L turbo diesel is tough by nature, hard-wearing and provides the legendary Isuzu reliability that you have come to expect.

Isuzu UTE D-MAX Design

A PERFECT COMBINATION OF PRECISION ENGINEERING AND CONTEMPORARY DESIGN

Taking inspiration from samurai culture, the D-MAX presents a tough, muscular stance with supple, flowing lines. It’s one good-looking ute.

EXTERIOR

With a commanding stance, the Isuzu UTE D-MAX combines a metropolitan style with tough off-road ruggedness.

The Isuzu designers have taken inspiration from Japanese culture and integrated the elegant curve of a Katana (a traditional Japanese sword) into the doors of each and every D-MAX ute.

D-MAX Katana Line

'Rear Wing' Doors swing out a full 90 degrees to make rear access and loading up equipment in the back of the D-MAX Space Cab easier than ever before. Available on LS-U & SX Space Cab.

D-MAX Rear Opening Doors

We've designed the D-MAX interior for comfort and ease of use. Quiet cabin, comfortable seats, plenty of legroom in the rear - everything right where you expect it to be and surprisingly spacious.

D-MAX Interior

D-MAX has a lot of hidden engineering features - suspension, sound proofing, body mountings that work together to make D-MAX one of the quietest in its class.

D-MAX Reversing Camera

The ultimate in active safety. Through a network of sensors throughout the ute, ESC can detect if you are over or understeering. It then commands ABS, TCS and the engine management computer to make sure you stay in control. It's like a third hand on the steering wheel, keeping you safe.

D-MAX Electronic Stability Control

Hill Descent Control electronically applies the brakes to ensure a smooth, controlled decent and will give you the confidence to tackle tricky downhill terrain.

A longer wheelbase, wider wheel track and a low centre of gravity make the D-MAX more stable when turning corners or changing lanes at freeway speeds-even when fully loaded.
