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.
The D-MAX’s superior ladder chassis is 20% stronger and wider than its predecessor thanks to larger chassis side rails and an added cross member.
The D-MAX body is reinforced with ultra high tensile steel for added safety and peace of mind.
Higher mounted control arms minimise body roll when cornering and improve tyre grounding.
A lighter, but stronger leaf designed for Australian conditions creates a smoother ride.
We didn’t just build this ute; we’ve tested it over and over again. 4,000,000km of simulated testing in the hardest conditions: searing heat, torrential rain - even snow. That’s the equivalent of 100 times around the earth to prove that the D-MAX is built to last.
WATCH THE 5-STAR TESTING ACTION
A 5-star ANCAP rating is the pinnacle of safety a vehicle can achieve in Australia. With new and more rigorous testing introduced for 2020, it is now even harder for a vehicle to achieve this maximum rating. Both the Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X have achieved a 5-star rating, placing them amongst the safest vehicles on Australian roads.
