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.
Available for select models in both 4x4 and 4x2 drivetrain options, the Isuzu RZ4E-TC 1.9L turbo-diesel engine generates 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque whilst achieving supreme fuel efficiency and refined operation.
With 2.8T+ (manual) and 3.0T+ (auto) braked towing capacity, it offers a flexible and economical option that’s ideal for fleet, tradies and small business operators.
The ‘Rev-Tronic’ 6-speed automatic gearbox with sequential sports mode automatically selects the most appropriate shift and lock-up points according to the driver’s behaviour, vehicle load and road speed.
The 6-speed manual transmissions benefit from a new dual mass flywheel, which absorbs vibrations and torque pulses from the engine for smoother and more efficient driveability and transmission longevity.
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+.
1.9L Power & Efficiency
The Isuzu RZ4E-TC 1.9 litre turbo-diesel, available for select models, delivers the perfect balance between power and fuel efficiency. Generating 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque, available from just 1,600 through to 2,600rpm.
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.

STEEL TIMING CHAIN
Fancy replacing your timing belt? Probably not – so the D-MAX doesn’t have one. Instead it uses a heavy duty steel timing chain to last the life of the engine. The double scissors design in the 3.0L engine also offers increased durability and reduced noise.
This unique Isuzu engine design detail eliminates backlash on deceleration, reducing engine wear.
Double Scissor Gears
A double scissor idler gear design in the 3.0L engine results in reduced engine and gear noise for quieter and smoother operation.
Heavy-Duty Isuzu Engine
Isuzu turbo-diesel engines are built to withstand higher temperatures and pressures than other engines. The powerful and efficient 3.0L 4JJ3-TCX engine in the D-MAX is tough by nature, hard wearing and delivers legendary Isuzu reliability.
