The Isuzu D-Max in the popular X-Rider trim has gained the larger, more powerful engine and offers a greater sense of value, without compromising on the full-fat benefits of the workhorse motor. As we patiently await the new model, the X-Rider is a valuable reminder of the basics to the bakkie recipe.

Now fitted with the 3.0Litre turbo diesel mated to a six-speed automatic, producing 130kW and 380Nm from 1800Rpm, driving the rear wheels only. The X-Rider offers a serious value proposition to the popular mainstream bakkie choices. The X-Rider design package adds 18-Inch diamond cut alloys in either black or silver, blacked-out front bumper cladding, roof rails and running boards. The 3.0TD is capable of a 3.5Ton towing capacity and 1 Ton payload, which is enough to match the likes of the Ranger, Hilux and Amarok. Internally the partial leather seats gain red contrast stitching, and infotainment is handled by a 20.3cm touchscreen with reverse camera, Carplay and Andriod Auto.
