Isuzu just unveiled the D-Max XTR prototype at the Commercial Vehicle Show, set to morph into a production-ready version later this year with pricing starting from £33,999 (roughly $44,268).
The D-Max XTR boasts extreme off-road capabilities thanks to its bespoke Pedders suspension, sophisicated body kit, increased ride height (250 mm / 9.84 inch ground clearance), performance front brake discs and 17-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus tires.
Isuzu added a custom body kit in order to enhance the visual appeal of the D-Max XTR. The kit is comprised of a front bumper guard, hood protector, headline frames, wheel arch extensions, rear bumper and tailgate spoiler. Other exterior mods include the black door mirror covers and black door handles, while the tinted rear windows will provide a dark aesthetic.
As for the color palette, the truck will be available in Splash White, Titanium Silver Met, Obsidian Grey Mica and Cosmic Black Mica – all of which were chosen to work alongside the vibrant green color incorporated into select components of the suspension and brake system.
Sporty steering wheel included
Inside, the D-Max XTR boasts heated front sports seats, upholstered in leather, suede and carbon fiber, with green contrast stitching on the side bolsters. Meanwhile, the XTR logo is embroidered on the back rest of each front seat, as well as on the rear center headrest.
Then there’s the D-shaped steering wheel, which looks surprisingly sporty, especially for a pickup truck that doesn’t necessarily project straight line prowess. It is trimmed in leather and suede and features green stitching like the seats – sewn by hand.
“The new Isuzu D-Max XTR is a unique and sophisticated pick-up with authentic off-road 4×4 capability. It fills a gap in the Isuzu D-Max range, allowing us to broaden our brand appeal and complete the new Adventure range.”
