D-MAX PERFORMANCE THE MUSCLE UNDER THE HOOD
The Power & Efficiency You Need
The Isuzu 3.0L turbo-diesel engine delivers a massive 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, matched with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Using highly-advanced Isuzu common-rail diesel technology this balances the power with superior fuel efficiency. The end result is outstanding performance to tackle any hill, overtake on the freeway and tow what you like without constant visits to the fuel station.
Isuzu Turbo-Diesel Power
At the heart of D-MAX is the Isuzu turbo-diesel engine range. With over a century of specialist engineering experience, the D-MAX is more than ready to handle whatever you throw at it.
The highly refined Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo-diesel common rail engine which offers superior fuel efficiency thanks to low friction, fuel injection optimisation and a large front-mounted intercooler.
This advanced Euro 5-compliant unit generates 140kW of power and a peak torque output of 450Nm from a low 1,600 to 2,600rpm. The high levels of torque from a low rpm provide strong take-off and acceleration and aid drivability with consistent torque output through the majority of the rev-range.
Torque On Demand
3.0L Torque On Demand
The advanced 3.0 litre turbo-diesel engine produces 140kW and an avalanche of torque on demand, with 450Nm available from just 1,600 through to 2,600rpm. This provides exceptional take-off and acceleration with a broad, flat torque band aiding overall drive-ability - also perfect for when carrying a load, or towing up to 3.5T+.
Tow Your Own Way
3.5T Pulling Power
The 3.0L D-MAX is built to tow and can make light work of a boat, a caravan or a trailer. With 3.5 tonne towing+, the truck-based chassis of the D-MAX gives you the ability to tow pretty much anything you can throw at it.

Dirty, dusty off-road adventure is where the D-MAX really shines, with engineering and technology features that'll keep you going across all types of terrain.
Rear Differential Lock
To get you out of the toughest spots, our 4x4 models come standard with a rear differential lock. If you’re on a slippery, uneven surface with the rear wheels spinning, the rear differential lock assists the low-ratio 4WD-low mode to give you the extra traction and control needed to keep moving.
Proven Fuel Efficiency
Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol engines. The D-MAX is so fuel efficient because our engineers have decades of experience in commercial transport, where every litre counts.
Advance Fuel Injectors
High pressure Common Rail fuel injection gives the most power while minimising the fuel required in the combustion process, and boosting economy.
The D-MAX Variable Geometry System (VGS) constantly adjusts to achieve optimum air compression from low revs, which ensures minimal fuel consumption with maximum torque across the rev-range.
The D-MAX has undergone vigorous testing to ensure a low drag co-efficiency (Cd) figure and the most aerodynamic body design yet. Low drag not only improves fuel efficiency, it reduces cabin noise for a quieter, more comfortable ride.
