Isuzu D-Max Beast
Isuzu Malaysia today unleashed the D-Max Beast Limited Edition, another rendition of its popular, best-selling pick up.

On the exterior, the Isuzu D-Max Beast is portrayed to be a distinctive and desirable pick up. The more subtle D-Max pick up is thus transformed to a bolder and more ‘untamed’ Beast. Available in two special colors, Magnum White Solid and Titan Silver Metallic, the D-Max Beast already carries a strong charisma. Up front, a dark grey grille and bonnet garnish replace the regular chrome-finished items to further give it an ‘animalistic’ instinct. Then, there’re the matte black bumper guard with silver accent plate and headlight garnishes to bring out the Beast mode. The headlights, which consist of a projector type, comprise of LED DRLs (daytime running lights).

At the profile, the Isuzu D-Max Beast features extreme wheel arches with matte black finish to go along with the special matte 17-inch wheels and 255/65R17 tyres. The door handles, roof rails, door mirrors and side steps, together with the decals, are further elements to provide contrast to the Beast-mode D-Max’s body color. The claw bar with lid, spoiler, black tailgate handle and bed liner add more imposing features to the D-Max Beast’s overall impression, especially when viewed from rear.
