Back in early-2020, we reported that the all-new RG-generation Isuzu D-Max won’t be arriving in Malaysia until 2022, but that could soon change.
Recent checks with various Isuzu dealers have indicated that stock is depleting quick, hinting that the next-gen model could arrive sooner than expected.
As such, it is very likely for Isuzu Malaysia to introduce the all-new Isuzu D-Max in Malaysian as soon as the first half of 2021. After all, several units of the all-new Isuzu D-Max were seen in Pekan, Pahang late last year.
To recap, the all-new Isuzu D-Max made its global debut in Thailand back in October 2019. It gets a completely redesigned exterior and an equally new platform. That said, the all-new D-Max features two powertrains: a 1.9-litre DDi BluePower turbodiesel that does 150 PS and 350 Nm, and an updated 3.0-litre DDi BluePower turbodiesel.
According to Isuzu, the new 3.0-litre unit is capable of churning out 190 PS and 450 Nm, up 13 PS and 70 Nm from before.

It also gets a revamped interior that looks far more upmarket than before, including features such as 9-inch touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, up to eight speakers, automatic dual-zone air-conditioning system, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver seat.
