Isuzu D-Max 2017 Review, Test, Release Date and Price
Isuzu D-Max 2017 Review, Test, Release Date and Price – The politics of downsizing makes his entrance into the world of pickup. It’s up to the Japanese Isuzu break the inertia with D-Max, retiring on generous 2.5 TDI, to make way for a 1,900 of equal power, but significantly smaller.
Isuzu D-Max 2017 Engine Improvement
New engine. With all the advantages of this choice: weight reduction (along with changing safe up 60 kg), containment of emissions and consumption, increase of the free space in the compartment, to be exploited in various ways, and different distribution of the masses, to the benefit of road behavior. The horses provided are essentially the same (164 at 3,600 rpm); Cala a bit, however, the maximum torque, which drops to 360 Nm (400) and there is a little higher, between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm. However, the different trends of the curve, with the complicity of the shorter axle ratio (changes from 3.01 to 4.3), allows the new 6-speed gearbox made in Isuzu (the 6-speed automatic, always, is manufactured by Aisin), not to regret the larger displacement. First gear manual version is very short: you can safely leave in second. Fifth and sixth, in contrast, are quite long (overdrive), to keep consumption: the Japanese State fuel savings up to 18%.
Also performance has improved, as well as noise, better filtered, and maintenance costs. For example, we introduced the automatic adjustment of valve clearance (about 2,500 was required after 40,000 km). Completely new emission treatment system, which renounces use AdBlue (water and urea), obtaining good results with the approach of the “trap” of gases (catalyst and particulate filter are in one block) to the exhaust manifolds, to make it work better at higher temperatures. The retreat and the lowering of the Centre of gravity, then, have certainly helped to drive, which is much more nimble and intuitive, no less agreeable than the 2,500, although the need to further exploit the change brings out a gear selection a little more contrasty. Significantly improved the speed of the grafts, also because of the shorter stroke of the lever. In that disappear behind the wheel of a, a much smoother. To underline the good absorption of the suspension, even the rear seats, despite the presence of the classic hard deck with leaf springs at the rear.
Isuzu D-Max 2017 SUV TRUCK Off-Road Test
In off-road. A pleasant surprise on-road behavior, thanks to its excellent traction provided by various driver assistance electronic controls, but also the good torsional stiffness. In particular, a note on should be paid to the device (Hsa) to break down safely on extreme gradients and, above all, hill descent control in very slippery conditions (between 5 and 30 km), that works pretty well even in reverse. The latter type of off-road driver assistance constitutes a fundamental factor, when you plant in the middle of a very slippery: you can in fact back at a controlled rate while retaining the ability to manage directionality with the Steering, enjoying an excellent rear visibility guaranteed by the camera fitted into the handle. The finish is not yet at the level of the best competitors, but with this new version have been made strides in the right direction, even as far as amenities. Among other things, without raising too much the selling price. the Isuzu D-Max 2017 Price is not yet final, but the list is expected to grow from 500 to 1,000 euros depending on version. Minor cosmetic changes to the front adopting Led daytime running lights, and at the back.
