Isuzu Unveils New D-MAX Pickup Based on 2012 Colorado

Hang up that call to the patent offices, this isn’t a Chinese clone of an American pickup. It’s Isuzu’s all-new D-MAX pickup truck, which was designed in cooperation with GM and is the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado’s twin in most ways. And it’s a good looking son of a brute, even if we do have to say so ourselves.

The new pickup was unveiled in Thailand at a large party, where the merits of the both double-cam and crew-cab versions were seen.

The engine range for the new pickup starts with a couple of 2.5-liter turbodiesels, producing 115 and 136 horsepower respectively. The top of the range model gets a 3.0-liter that’s capable of producing 177 hp.

We can expect to see the new pickup appearing on the European market soon as well, even in RHD form.
