Isuzu D-MAX – I’ve just spent a couple of weeks in the latest Isuzu D-MAX LS-U+ 4WD Crew Cab Ute.
Positioned to slot in between the flagship X-TERRAIN and the mid-spec LS-U, the new LS-U+ Crew Cab Ute, features similar equipment as the LS-U, but with the addition of premium black leather-accented upholstery and interior trims.
Adding a touch more comfort to the package, the front seats are heated, with the driver’s featuring 8-way electric adjustment with electric lumbar support.
Additional equipment adds dual vanity mirror lights, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated door mirrors, the Lane Support System Switch, a GCM of 6,000kg and a factory-fitted tow bar receiver and tub liner.

With class leading safety features across the range and the new Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS),the D-MAX has a five star ANCAP safety rating.
Improvements to the reliable 3.0l turbo diesel engine mean smoother driving and better economy. D-MAX has always been a strong off road performer as well as an excellent tow vehicle for caravans, boats or horse floats etc.
Isuzu D-MAX LS-U+ is priced from only $61,900 plus the usual costs it should be on everyone list for a premium Dual Cab Ute.
