2024 24MY D-MAX Multi-Vehicle Shots-1008

  • Available from 1st May 2024, the facelifted 2024 Isuzu D-MAX range blends form and function with new technology and safety features and a bold interior and exterior redesign

2024 D-Max quick overview

Significant updates to the exterior design underscore the bold and masculine aesthetic, combining signature Isuzu design language with contemporary bodywork and utilitarian hardiness. Inside, it’s a similar feedback-driven-affair, with new 8.0-inch and 9.0-inch infotainment systems, an updated 4.2-inch or new 7.0-inch digital Multi-Information Displays, and new upholstery trim and interior design elements influenced by the Japanese paperfolding art of Muira Origami.

“This update marks the most comprehensive update to the D-MAX since local debut,” said Isuzu UTE Australia Managing Director, Junta Matsui.

“As one of Australia’s top-selling vehicles, the D-MAX represents exceptional value for money and with the addition of some new safety features, it is once again one of Australia’s safest vehicles on sale with segment leading standardised safety features on every single model—from the entry-level SX to the flagship X-TERRAIN.

“Not only does the 2024 D-MAX feature specifications bespoke to the Australian market, but the design changes have also been influenced by the very feedback we’ve received from the media and customers over the past three years—improving one of Australia’s favourite vehicles to make it even more appealing and competitive.”

2024 D-Max Driving Impressions from Launch

Steve Tierney went along to the launch of the upgraded 24MY Isuzu D-Max.

Lets see what he had to say.

Its been a while since I’ve been on a launch for Isuzu and when I was invited to test drive I jumped at the chance. The new improved D-Max first drive was at RACQ  Mobility Centre Queensland and also a Four Wheel drive track set up for the launch at Sirromet Winery.  Yep you heard right !

There was a line up of the different variants of the D-Max across the range of vehicles. Can I say there are 25 variants with different options eg 4wd and 4X2 dual cab, Auto and Manual and 9 colours!

There is something available for the Family, Tradies and Traveler. There is the basic Ute the SX,  then the dual cabs  LS-M, LS-U, LS-U+  and the very nice  X-Terrain. The X-Rider has been added to the fleet for 2024.

These vehicles were all available with the new improved 1.9 litre motor with internal and external updates  and to say I was surprised  was an understatement

First Impressions

First impressions when you walk up to the vehicle are  definitely that the upgrades are noticeable. The new grill is sensational and the headlights are a stand out as well with the indicators now part of the LED headlights.

There are slight improvements to the overall body shape with  the squared off bonnet and lines continuing along the vehicle. It gives the vehicle a nice stance. The tail lights are a standout as well being thay are now a three piece design

There’s a quirky, but functional air vent in the front grill to direct air to the front brakes, called the Air Curtain – clever concept. I was also impressed with the canopy slide on the Ute. However, it folds back into an area that does use a bit of cargo space, but you can work around that.

The D-Max sits nicely on the new 18 inch Alloys. Being a traveler myself, I couldn’t  help but notice the factory options of bullbar, towbar and 12 pin plugs for your towing needs.

Inside

Inside of the vehicle is also a change up from the previous model.

First thing I noticed was the new touch screen entertainment system. NO MORE slide buttons for volume etc. dials take their place for ease of use and your mobile phone can connect wireless. There are buttons of course under the touch screen for your climate control and other functions. Everything is within reach and simple.

The 9.0 inch instrument cluster is a stand out feature, being easy to read and see. I noticed the steering wheel has a mass of buttons for different features e.g. lane keep assist, brake detect, adaptive cruise control and other features that were a lot to take in.

For myself this was a bit daunting as im used to an older 4WD, but I’m sure over a period of time this would become second nature and easy to use and understand.

Now being a tall guy I’m always going to jump into the back seat to checkout leg room. If the driver is a more normal height, there’s plenty of room, but if you had four tall dudes travelling in the vehicle the leg room in the back is tight ….very tight. However that’s the case for all Utes other than the larger RAM, OR Silverado etc.

The interior overall is very smart and the seating is super comfortable. I remember the crew saying something about Miura Ori design?

Engine and Drivetrain

There is now a 1.9 litre motor available. It’s Incredible how much power they can squeeze out of these engines

Of course, there is also a 3 litre available across the range. You can almost configure the body style and engine you want.

Unfortunately all car manufacturers are hit with the daunting task of zero driving emissions in the near future by the powers that be.  I think this must be very frustrating for them.

We put the vehicles through the  towing test  a 2500 kg caravan and an almost 3,000 kg boat. I was surprised at the power it had and also its stopping ability. A side note, the clearview mirrors were a fantastic addition

On road and off road the D-Max is very capable, I can confidently say it ticks all the boxes for your drive to work or being a weekend warrior. We tested both engines on moguls and steep inclines and when you hit the traction control button you can definitely feel the D-Max working its way out of any trouble. If needed there is always the advantage of the factory fitted Diff Lock –  Wow Super impressed that this is standard in this vehicle.

We were also taken on to a water crossing. Now I’ve done heaps of these in my time but with 16 x D-max’s going through the same spot one after the other things started getting very boggy and tricky.

With the expert guidance of our instructors, every D-Max got through with out incident. The first four vehicles had it easy, the rest were put to the test. I have to say the D-max made the amateurs look good.  The engine, steering and suspension responsiveness are fantastic.  I would be confident to take this vehicle anywhere now

Safety

Safety is a major feature with these vehicles and D-Max has ruled the roost with their standout features. There is a complete list of safety features later in this article, but lets just say, they have nailed it again.

Let’s not forget the ADAS Stereo Camera. This is another incredible upgrade as it can detect oncoming vehicle 700 metres away and also detect vehicles in front with Taillights on 500 metres away.  Amazing!

The feature I was super impressed with was the Rear Cross Traffic Brake.  How many near misses do you see when vehicles are reversing out of a spot. This eliminates that problem entirely – every car should have one!

Other manufacturers have tried to catch but I can say confidently that the D-Max is still leading in this field

Last thoughts

Overall, I was impressed with the vehicle. Stylish. comfortable and practical with all its features.

ISUZU have gone to a lot of trouble to bring a very reliable Dual Cab to the market and also at an affordable price compared to others.

Id say it wont be long before the D-Max would be the first choice for many buyers  Take one for a spin. You’ll be impressed

2024 D-MAX RANGE

With Utes accounting for over 20 per cent of the 1.1-million new vehicles sold in 2023, the 2024 D-MAX range doubles down on catering for Australian families, tradesmen, and travellers—sporting a wide bandwidth of versatility and capability that suits the school runs, worksite and towing the boat or caravan around Australia—ensuring it remains one of Australia’s favourite vehicle choices.

Offering an extensive choice of body styles, tray configurations, and powertrain options, the 2024 D-MAX range sports a total of 25 models with the X-RIDER joining the line up as a regular offering, after a successful introduction as a limited-edition model in 2023.

2024 ISUZU D-MAX LS-M CREW CAB CHASSIS F45 Mineral White Econ tray

Updated – LS-M Crew Cab Ute Suspension

Recognising that the LS-M has been a popular choice for families, the 2024 D-MAX LS-M Ute features a softer and more compliant rear standard-duty 3-leaf spring suspension tune.

This update comes off the back of feedback received from customers who wanted improved comfort and handling when unladen and improved rear suspension travel and articulation when off-roading. The D-MAX LS-M Crew Cab Chassis still features the heavy-duty 3-leaf spring suspension tune.

2024 24MY D-MAX X-RIDER Magnetic Red -1128

NEW – X-RIDER added to the range

Built upon the popular mid-spec D-MAX LS-M, the X-RIDER combines adventure-ready accessories by way of a loopless soft tonneau and sports bar, with an injection of bold Basalt Black and Gloss Black accents to give the variant a sporty aesthetic.

The interior is a familiar utilitarian affair, with premium hardwearing upholstery, vinyl flooring, the new 8.0-inch infotainment system, and a dark interior trimmed with a black headlining and material black accents throughout.

Powered by the venerable 140kW/450Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel engine, the X-RIDER benefits from the updated suspension tune introduced to the 24MY LS-M for better unladen and off-road performance.

With a sportier and bolder design aesthetic that is usually reserved for the flagship X-TERRAIN, the X-RIDER is set to be the choice of savvy Australians looking for affordable, out-of-the-box off-road capability, at a compelling price point.

2024 D-MAX X-TERRAIN Crop Sunstone Orange North Stradbroke (49)

Exterior Design 

Sporting a bold and chiselled front profile, the exterior design reflects a captivating and dynamic demeanour, with new bi-LED headlights (LS-M models and above) and sharp bodylines emanating from the latest evolution of Isuzu’s signature horizontal bar grille.

A higher, squarer bonnet with longitudinal creases run the length of the front, channelling both airflow and one’s vision around and over the ute and towards the rear.

A set of prominent redesigned taillights redefine the rear of the D-MAX, with familiar horizontal bodywork creases expanding the width of the tailgate, tying in the same bodylines that originate from the redesigned signature grille.

Darker and bolder, Isuzu’s design team focused on uplifting the overall exterior aesthetic with premium textures and finishes. Both the updated X-TERRAIN and new X-RIDER feature an even bolder exterior design, with both models sporting dark grey underbody spoilers, darkened accents and a menacing front bar design that ties in with Isuzu’s signature front grille.

Blending form and function, a pair of air curtains nestled within the fog lights, channels accelerated airflow around the front wheels, which when combined with airflow deflectors, sleek longitudinal body lines and the redesigned and deeper rear tailgate spoiler, improves the overall aerodynamic design.

2024 D-MAX X-TERRAIN Interior front

Interior Design 

Combining premium appointments with utilitarian hardiness, inside, the D-MAX is a familiar family-centric affair of creature comforts, the latest in wireless connectivity and occupant ergonomics. Across the doors, seats and dashboard sports bolder accents and trims influenced by the Japanese art of Muira Origami paperfolding.

Occupant comfort remains core to the Isuzu interior design philosophy, with supportive anti-vibration EVA foam-lined seats, trimmed in redesigned ‘layer-geometry’ embossed upholstery, providing refinement and support for all seated within.

LS-U+ and X-TERRAIN takes comfort to the next level, with ‘Miura-Origami’ inspired perforated leather-accented upholstery throughout.

As expected from the flagship, the X-TERRAIN sports the signature red stitching throughout the cabin, with dark grey and piano black appointments in lieu of the satin chrome, silver, black and grey accents of the rest of the range.

2024 D-MAX X-TERRAIN drivers instrument cluster

In line with feedback received, the instrument cluster has been redesigned with the 4.2-inch Multi-Information Display (MID) and dials revised with easier to read fonts and graphics.

LS-U, LS-U+, and X-TERRAIN models sport a high-definition 7.0-inch MID, with the additional digital real estate offering the driver more information at a glance, such as tyre pressures and temperatures and Sat-Nav directions.

Adopting the same ‘Hexa Pod’ design language seen across the interior, the spokes of the four-spoke wheel are trimmed in either matte silver, satin chrome or piano black, depending on model, while the centre of the wheel sports a redefined design, better matching the premium look and feel as per the rest of the cabin.

2024 D-MAX X-TERRAIN INFOTAINMENT

NEW – Infotainment 

New 8.0-inch on SX, LS-M, and X-RIDER and 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreens on LS-U, LS-U+, and X-TERRAIN command the heart of the interior—a completely new system that addresses the feedback received by both customers and media.

All systems sport USB-C connectivity, voice recognition, DAB+ digital radio, and wired and wireless Apple CarPlay®, and for the first time, wired and wireless Android Auto™, for true wireless connectivity, no matter the smartphone.

With off-road enthusiasts in mind, an inclinometer, and Terrain Command 4×4 drive modes have been integrated into the system—affording the driver the ability to view essential systems at a simple tap and swipe of the screen.

Keeping things simple and addressing commonly received feedback, a pair of tuning and volume dials have been added, improving tactility, functionality, and useability.

The 9.0-inch infotainment system is also equipped with Sat-Nav, ADAS setting controls, and an additional 3.0-Amp USB-C connection, as well as relaying vital tyre pressures and temperatures via the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

OFF-ROAD

Earning a place in thousands of driveways nationwide, the D-MAX isn’t just one of Australia’s favourite utes, it is also one of Australia’s favourite 4WDs. Engineered to take motorists off the beaten track and back home again, the 2024 Isuzu D-MAX is Isuzu’s most capable vehicle to date.

Impressive ground clearance of up to 240mm, a wading depth of 800mm, and extensive underbody protection make it the pragmatic choice of enthusiasts. Selectable dual-range 4WD, a rear differential lock, and the all-important angles for approach, departure and ramp-over of 30.5°, 19.0° and 23.8°, respectively (X-TERRAIN), makes the D-MAX one of the more capable 4WDs out of the box.

Unique for the Australian market is a prefabricated pathway in the inner fender for easy installation of an engine snorkel, and a suspension tune specific for Australian roads and conditions—the result of years of localised evaluation to improve ride and handling, comfort, and articulation.

2024 D-Max rough terrain mode

NEW – Rough Terrain Mode

Addressing media and customer feedback to improve the off-road traction control, 2024 D-MAX 4×4 models are equipped with Rough Terrain Mode (RTM), an electronic off-road traction control aid that maximises torque-transfer and driveability in technical, slippery, and rough conditions.

First debuting on the MU-X in 2021, RTM finely modulates brake force to individual wheels when slip is detected, proportioning torque to the wheels with the most grip, for optimal driveability, tractability, and torque-transfer to the terrain, with little to no loss to momentum.

Unlike RTM found on the MU-X, the 2024 D-MAX sports the latest generation of RTM, which works in conjunction with the Rear Differential Lock; maximising traction with a locked rear axle and traction control across the front axle—ideal when wheel articulation or front axle slippage is at a maximum and traction control is needed to transfer drive to the terrain.

2024 24MY D-MAX X-TERRAIN Tyre pressure monitor system

Updated – Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Another feature that has been updated in line with customer feedback, the updated Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) displays real-time individual tyre pressures and temperatures via the 7.0-inch MID and 9.0-inch infotainment screen.

When tyres are deflated for off-roading, the system will produce a warning for 5 seconds before minimising into the background of the MID, giving the driver full control of the MID and infotainment system.

When tyres are reinflated back to placard pressures, the D-MAX will flash indicators and beep, indicating that the optimal tyre pressures have been reached. All D-MAX models fitted with 18-inch wheels feature the updated Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

2024 24MY D-MAX X-TERRAIN Safety ADAS

2024 D-Max Safety

When the third-generation D-MAX debuted locally in late-2020, it reset expectations when it introduced a standardised suite of advanced driver assistance and safety systems across all models.

While the D-MAX has been awarded the maximum 5 star safety rating by ANCAP under the 2022 protocols, new safety system hardware expands the comprehensive list of advanced driver assistance and safety systems even further.

NEW – 3D Stereo Camera

The new ‘Gen4’ Stereo Camera hardware scans the road ahead and to the sides, identifying pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycles and other vehicles with greater speed and accuracy. With wider peripheral vision and depth perception, the field of view (FOV) increases by +200%, from 40-degrees to 120-degrees.

Vehicle detection range also increases by +25 per cent, from 120m to 150m, with the system able to identify the headlights of oncoming vehicles that are 700m away. An inbuilt USB-A charging port conveniently provides power to aftermarket dashcams, and an inbuilt demister system prevents condensation from obscuring the vision.

NEW – Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (IACC)

Calibrated specifically for the Australian market, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (IACC) is the next generation of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), using speed zone data identified by Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)—including digital and overhead gantry signs—to conveniently assist the driver in matching vehicle speed with the posted speed limit.

With IACC engaged, the driver will be alerted to any changes to the posted speed limit, with the changed speed limit displayed on the MID. The driver is then prompted to select the new speed zone with the ‘RES’ button on the steering wheel, which will set the vehicle speed to match the posted speed limit. IACC and ACC is standard on all 2024 D-MAX models, regardless of the transmission.

Updated – Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

The Lane Keep Assist (LKA) has also been revised, based on user feedback. The updated function now provides smoother steering intervention and better tracks the centre of the lane, rather than reacting to the outer lane markings. Previously, LKA was only available on D-MAX models with an automatic transmission but is now available on models fitted with a manual transmission.

NEW – Rear Cross Traffic Brake (RCTB)

Rear Cross Traffic Brake (RCTB) is an active safety feature that uses the same 24-GHz radar sensors found in the rear bumper for Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

Like a second set of watchful eyes scanning behind the vehicle, RCTB is designed to prevent accidents while reversing from a parking space or driveway by detecting approaching vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians and will apply the brakes to avoid a collision or minimise its impact.

NEW – Welcome Headlight and Welcome Light functions

Improving visibility and safety at night, all models gain the new Welcome Headlight function, which, when the vehicle is unlocked, illuminates the park lights and low-beam headlights on SX models, and the LED daytime running lights (DRLs) and bi-LED low-beam headlights on LS-M, X-RIDER, LS-U, LS-U+, and X-TERRAIN models.

The Welcome Light function on LS-U, LS-U+, and X-TERRAIN models further improves nighttime visibility by automatically illuminating the interior lights when the vehicle detects the proximity key is within two meters of the vehicle.

2024 Isuzu Media Drive Day reverse camera

NEW – Digital Reverse Camera

Addressing the feedback received from the media and customers, a new digital reversing camera has been fitted to all models, including cab chassis. Not only does it dramatically improve image quality and brightness over previous analogue reverse camera, but the new camera also features dynamic guidelines, a wider field of view, and a hydrophobic coating over the lens to prevent the water and dirt from accumulating and obscuring the vision—particularly handy when off-road.

The revised five-year/75,000km Flat Price Servicing program was introduced in response of feedback received from the media and customer; aligning the maintenance program with the average ownership length of Isuzu owners surveyed and represents a 12 per cent or $310 saving when compared with the five-year/75,000km maintenance schedule of a 23MY 3.0L D-MAX and MU-X.

Pricing details

For years, the Isuzu D-MAX has been recognised for providing exceptional value within the 1-tonne Ute segment, and as a vehicle of practicality, durability, and versatility amongst motorists. With the 2024 D-MAX range sporting a raft of extensive updates and new features, pricing remains competitive; with minor increases of $500 to $2,000, depending on model.

With customer feedback in mind, IUA’s long-standing drive away offer on the entry-level D-MAX SX Single Cab Chassis 4×2 with the 1.9-Litre turbo-diesel engine and a manual transmission remains, priced at just $32,490 drive away with a 2,550mm Eco Alloy Tray.
