Isuzu is gearing up to launch the 2018 D-Max V-Cross facelift next month. The updated D-Max pickup will be available in two variants - V-Cross and V-Cross High priced at Rs. 14,27,344 and Rs. 15,77,344 (ex-showroom, Andhra Pradesh) respectively. We have also learned that Isuzu dealerships have started accepting bookings for the vehicles.

The refreshed D-Max gets a slightly revised exterior as well as new standard features. Isuzu has carried over the same front fascia with its large chrome grille and sweptback projector headlamps. Side steps and a rear view camera are offered as standard, while the V-Cross High variant gets LED DRLs, LED tail lamps and a chrome rear bumper. The rear tailgate has also been redesigned and gets a chrome handle.

Inside, the V-Cross High comes with 6-way power adjustable driver seat, black leather upholstery, multi-functional steering wheel with cruise control, electronic stability control and traction control. An audio head unit, which appears to have a touchscreen, is available on both variants.

Mechanically, the D-Max facelift is expected to be identical to the outgoing model. The 2.5-litre, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine delivers 134 BHP @ 3,600 rpm and 320 Nm of torque @ 1,800-2,800 rpm and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It is also equipped with four-wheel drive.

Isuzu is expected to officially announce the D-Max facelift in the coming weeks.
