This lorry driver was caught driving in the wrong direction and his excuse was…

We’ve seen several cars driving in the wrong direction by now, but we have yet to hear about a heavy-duty lorry doing so. But a few days ago, a video of a lorry driving in the wrong direction in Port Klang went viral and the logistics company that owns the lorry has now issued an apology and explanation. In the video, the dashcam footage caught the lorry speeding in the wrong direction on one of Port Klang’s narrow two-lane highways. Thankfully, the lorry was unloaded and the driver can be seen

In Brief: New Isuzu D-Max 2019, now with 1.9L BluePower Ddi engine

First launched in 2011, the current generation Isuzu D-Max is the oldest pick-up truck in the segment. To keep it current, Isuzu Malaysia has given the D-Max yet another mid-life update.

Review: 2019 Isuzu D-Max 1.9 – Can the (not so) new Ddi engine help this ageing truck?

(2019 Isuzu D-Max 1.9 Prices & Specs | Gallery) When it comes to shopping for a pick-up truck, unless you're a contractor that hauls machinery every now and then, it is unlikely you'll be considering the Isuzu D-Max. The reason is simple – those who desires a lifestyle pick-up truck would have selected the Ford Ranger or Mitsubishi Triton, not the Isuzu D-Max. But we firmly believe that the D-Max does have some redeeming features that could position itself as a worthy lifestyle truck alternative

Choosing the right engine for your needs - Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton, Isuzu D-Max, Toyota Hilux

Performance figures published by car manufacturers are a two-sided coin, as figures alone don't dictacte the vehicle's overall driving experience. Instead, factors such as the vehicle’s weight should be factored in as well, as having a high output vehicle with a heavy weight would penalize its performance. Do keep in mind that having the most powerful engine does not necessarily equate to being the most durable or reliable. Ford Ranger - The most powerful pick-up truck money can buy In the case
