On display at Isuzu is a street rugged D-Max, off road version of MU-X and the new 1.9L Ddi BluePower engine. There is a highly eccentric urban rugged design of the D-Max at KLIMS’18. The exterior comes with army electric blue geometrics with red highlights as the main body colour. The body is upgraded with steel bumpers, street styled alloy wheels and a roll bar with a tougher look. The interior comes with a ‘blue metal armour’ design which reassembles a suit of a soldier.
The MU-X was improved upon its participation in the renowned Borneo Safari. It is fully off road capable, equipped with various add-ons such as the winch, roof tray, mud tyres and steel bumpers. It is also lifted 3 inches for improvement in ground clearance in both inclines and declines. The interior received an upgrade in leather seats. The monotone black and yellow accent decal complements the entire rugged and tough look. One of the highlights on display is the newly invented RZ4E-TC 1.9L Ddi BluePower diesel turbo engine. The RZ4E is a new generation diesel engine which is the result of four years of extensive research in diesel engine technology.
