Along with the base model, the 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is also about to come completely new in the next year. The famous pickup truck has been around for about 16 years.
The original version came in 2002 when it succeeded the model called Isuzu Faster. The current second-generation model is present since 2012. Considering the fact the segment of mid-size trucks is becoming more and more popular, a soon redesign seems very likely.
This model has always been closely related to Chevy Colorado, so we expect the same thing in the future. The third generation of this capable truck will most likely come next year. We expect to see a lot of novelties, including a completely new styling that will make 2019 D-Max V-Cross far more attractive. Of course, numerous mechanical upgrades will make this truck even better.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Redesign
The core of the upcoming redesign will be a new platform. Once again, it will be a joint venture with GM, which should bring improvements in various aspects. First of all, we could see some brand-new design solutions borrowed from the new Silverado. This mostly refers to the use of lightweight materials.
The new 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross will be lighter while keeping the same rigidity. Overall performances should be on the even higher level. In terms of basic chassis characteristics, we have no doubt that the new model will continue with familiar body styles, which include both single and two-row versions.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Styling and Interior design
Of course, the upcoming redesign is about to bring a lot of visual upgrades. Compared to the current model, the new 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross should look far more attractive. The current model is super capable and that is the reason why we love this truck. However, the styling has never been its strong point. The company wants to make the new version more attractive to a wider range of customers, including those who see trucks not just as working machines, but as a matter of style as well.
Same goes for the interior design. The current model comes with a pretty simple and straightforward interior design, which is mostly about hard plastics. The new model will utilize much more soft-touch materials and a completely new dashboard design. The styling of the new dash should be far more attractive, with focus on horizontal lines and more upscale approach. Also, expect to see much gadgetry and other tech features, which will include a large touchscreen interface as well.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Engines and Drivetrain
If you ever wondered what the “V-Cross” badge actually means, it is nothing more than a 4×4 version. While base models come to an RWD drive, V-Cross models run on all wheels. So far, this truck was available with various engines in the offer, depending on the market.
For example, the Australian market version comes exclusively with a 3.0-liter diesel engine that is good for about 175 horsepower.
On the other side, European models rely on a smaller but more efficient 2.5-liter diesel unit, which offers the similar amount of power. These two engines should continue in the new-generation model, though some tweaks that would provide more power are possible.
In some markets, you can find a small but highly reliable 1.9-liter diesel unit, while a gasoline engine will be available only on specific markets.
2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Release Date and Price
The 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross should be unveiled next year. A more precise date should be known in the near future. When it comes to the price, we don’t expect bigger changes to the current model, which starts 21.000 dollars. Competition in the segment is pretty tough. Some of the biggest rivals are models like the Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi L200, Chevy Colorado, Nissan Navara.
