The Isuzu D-Max Artic takes up several ‘premium’ features to represent a more distinguished pick-up. At the front, the newly-added DRLs (Daytime running lights) give the pick-up a bold fascia, along with the Pearlscent White paint which extends to mouldings on the lower flanks of the doors. The cargo spoiler blends well with the chrome trimmings to add more character to the pick-up when viewed from the rear. Meantime, the side steps of the truck feature silver anodized aluminium material, which pairs eloquently with the hyper-silver 17-inch wheels. Additionally, there are added items such as, a V-Lid in Silver (Roll-bar also valid for base Artic versions) and a matching cover (with lock) in body paint color.
A maxed-out Plush interior for the Isuzu D-Max Artic
Interior-wise, the Isuzu D-Max Artic presents a cabin that’s welcoming yet subtle with the necessary factory fitted items and accessories. On entrance, you’d notice the dashboard’s brown wood-like accents on the door trim and center console. There’s a push button climate control knob for easy access to temperature control. The onboard Multimedia system is loaded with a reverse camera and premium audio system, with live surround sound that emanates from the roof-mounted ‘Exciter’ speakers. The driver and occupants get Italian leather seats for an overall plush interior experience in a pick up.
The D-Max Artic runs on two engine platforms; 2.5-liter 4X4 and 3.0-liter, both paired to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Double wishbones front suspension and Leaf springs rear, along with hydraulic shock absorbers hold the truck together during 4X4 escapades. The Artic’s stopping power relies on ventilated with two-pot calipers at the front and drums at the rear.
