Scoop! Isuzu D-Max BS6 teaser live on website

In August 2020, we had reported that Isuzu's BS6 stock could be arriving in the month of September. Now, the carmaker has released a teaser image on the official website.

The image appears to be of the D-Max pick-up truck with commercial registration. Apart from the V-Cross and the MU-X, the Isuzu brand is popular in the commercial segment as well, with offerings like the D-Max pickup up, D-Max twin cab and D-Max flat deck and cab-chassis variants. These commercial offerings were powered by a 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine which produced 78 BHP @ 3,800 rpm and 176 Nm @ 1,800-2,400 rpm. In BS6 guise, the engine should have a similar output.

Earlier this year, we had reported that Isuzu had postponed the launch of its BS6 vehicles to Q2 of 2020-21 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Dealers are currently only selling BS4 vehicles which they had registered in their names before the deadline. Discounts of Rs. 1 lakh - 1.5 lakh on BS4 prices are being offered on these vehicles along with a free 3 year / 1 lakh km maintenance package. The buyers will be second owners on paper in such cases.

Thanks to Ajay kumar Kommaraju for sending this image in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!
