2012 Isuzu Dmax on Sale at Thailand's top Isuzu Dealer Exporter of Isuzu Dmax pickup truck and Isuzu MU-7 SUV
Euro 5 Isuzu Dmax 2012 model is now on sale at discounted price at Thailand's top Pickup Truck, car and SUV dealer and top Isuzu Dmax dealer and exporter Jim Autos Thailand.
2012 Isuzu Dmax is a combination of American ingenuity and Japanese engineering genius. Like all previous models, 2012 Isuzu Dmax shares its ladder chassis platform, body construction, mechanical componentry and interior design (dash, centre stack, steering wheel and doors) with the upcoming 2013 North American Chevrolet Colorado. From A-pillar on back Isuzu Dmax appears to be a clone of Chevy Colorado but gets its own visual identity due to an aggressive angular front fascia with upswept headlights and a more conventional grille design.
Dmax uses Isuzu's own engine and drivetrain. Isuzu's iTEQ engine has been retained but has been tuned up. 2500 cc engine now comes in two configurations; normal turbo 87kW power with 280Nm of torque and 101kW of power and VGS Turbo with 320Nm of torque. If you want more power you can opt for four-cylinder 3000 cc 4JJ1-TC iTEQ common-rail diesel engine with VGS Turbo which now has the power of 132kW with 380Nm of torque. Engines performance have been upgraded with Variable geometry turbocharger (VGS Turbo) and Isuzu Dmax's engines pass Euro V emission standard. 2012 Dmax still comes with 5-speed manual but has unvelied new 5-speed "Rev-Tronic" automatic transmission with sport mode (2011 model had 4 speed automatic transmission). 4WD models have been renamed from "Rodeo" to "V-Cross", and transfer case has been renamed from "Touch-on-the-fly" button to new "Terrain command" system that uses spin system to allow for seamless changing of drive modes from 4-Whell to 3-Wheel Drive mode. Isuzu front suspension made up of independent double wishbone with coil-spring setup and a rear suspension made up of over slung leaf-springs installed above a special long span rear axle make for a comfortable driving experience.
Isuzu new rugged ladder-frame chassis platform dubbed "i-GRIP" (Isuzu Gravity Responsive Intelligent Platform) underpinning the new D-Max makes 42% stronger than its predecessors leading to improved ride and handling. The frame includes improved cross bracing at the rear, improving stability under loads and while towing, while also “ensuring long-term durability when used regularly in harsh environments”. Longer wheelbase of 3095mm – 45mm longer than before – is now standard on all three body styles. This is good news for double cab users as rear riders not only get more leg space but also more comfortable seats.
D-Max would continue to be offered in all three body styles: Single Cab, Space Cab and Crew Cab. Customers will also continue to have a choice of rear-wheel drive 4x2 and four-wheel drive 4x4 models. Space Extra Cab has laterally opening door to give easier access to the rear seat. Isuzu D-Max has an advanced safety package, with features including high-tensile stell, electronic stability control ESC, traction control (TCS), ABS, emergency brake assist, a number of airbags and electronic brake distribution EBD. EBD detects the payload weight and modulates the rear braking force to compensate. .In ESC fitted models ABS now goes to 4-channel 4-sensor type in stead of the current 3-channel 4-sensor.
The D-Max gets more storage spaces. Isuzu Entertainment System includes eight speaker comprising two large 6 x 9 inch front speakers and a roof-mounted Exciter speaker sound system replete with surround sound in the newly designed dash along with 'iGENIE' navigation system which include support for real-time traffic reports, and is equipped with standard Bluetooth and portable music player connectivity. It also comes with comfortable Flex-Ride suspension system; 2-DIN audio-video head unit with navigation-ready system; projector-type headlamps that provide 14% more illumination than their ordinary counterparts; side-impact steel beams; and rear camera and sensor.
Isuzu has combined ultra-aerodynamic technology normally utilized by Japanese bullet trains with state-of-the-art aerospace technology called Isuzu Insight.
