Fans of the Isuzu D-Max in India can purchase a special edition of the truck. Since 2016 the vehicle is available as the V-Cross model. It adds some features to make the pickup more exciting. Not only that styling is improved, but also the drive system. Now, everything goes even further with the announcement of 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross.
This truck will offer few drive modes. Depending on a surface and weather condition, the driver will select one of them. We expect the same drivetrain as before. However, the company could add the petrol variant for some trim level. Again, the 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is going to come in the base and high variant. With extras, we will find numerous cool features, such as leather seats inside and chrome bumper outside the truck.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Specs
A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is the power source for the 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross. This reliable diesel drivetrain is slightly improved. Fans will get a boost in power compared to the predecessor. Now, the four-pot unit can produce 140 horses and 320 lb-ft of torque. The intercooled engine sends power either to two or four wheels. A five-speed manual is the only option for the diesel unit.
The 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross will offer few drive modes. Well, that is what we can see elsewhere. But, there is something that makes it so special. A Shift-On-The-Fly system allows drivers to switch modes on the go, at speeds under 100 kmh.
Shift-On-The-Fly 2H system is the basic one you will need in the everyday ride. If the 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross truck is used for commuting, then this mode will be active most of the time. But, if things get nasty on the road, the Shift-On-The-Fly 4H is improving the safety. Better traction for wet and slippery road conditions are coming with this mode. But, what happens if you are off the road? Don’t worry, the Shift-On-The-Fly 4L system will help your truck get out of the mud, sand, and other bad off-road situations.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Changes
When the V-Cross appeared in 2016, it was obvious that the Isuzu is wiping off the competition. Indian carmakers Tata and Mahindra became the serious threat for an outdating D-Max. The response was quick and the truck got the new edition. Now, the 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is adding even more. Since Toyota is a minor shareholder in the company, we will see some similarities between Tacoma and D-Max V-Cross. However, these are just shades, since the Isuzu pickup remains the cheaper version. On the other hand, it will be possible to upgrade the truck with High Variant trim. There, we could find electronic stability and traction control systems, LED lamps, leather seats with power adjustment, and many more accessories.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Release Date
The 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross remains the truck for the Indian market. Although it drew the attention of some fans from other countries, the pickup is not going international. The production stays in India and V-Cross is not expecting export. However, the new model could change things up for the future editions. The 2019 D-Max V-Cross is definitely causing a lot of interest, but we will see what will happen when the truck hits dealerships early next season.
