2018 Isuzu D-Max LS

updated: August 31, 2018 02:05 | launched: July 19, 2018

Having already received a new engine just last year, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) decided to give the their midsize pickup a cleaner burning turbo-diesel with the all-new 3.0-liter BluPower engine. With it, the D-Max now meets Euro4 emission standards while power delivery has been improved despite retaining the same output figures from the previous engine. It's available in both manual and automatic models and can be had in either 4x2 or 4x4 variants. Should one opt for a smaller engine, the D-Max is now also available with the new 1.9-liter RZ4E turbo-diesel.


The latest to do so is Isuzu as they've stuck in one of the smallest turbodiesels in the country today in their pickup, the D-Max, as well as the mu-X. It's the new 1.9-liter diesel which they call the RZ4E and, on paper, the specs are impressive. But do these figures translate just as well on the road? Will an engine smaller than 2.0 liters actually haul? It's time to put Isuzu's new engine to the test in the D-Max.
