Isuzu D-MAX reliability

Built with all the values that have made Isuzu famous.

D-MAX is robust, reliable, dependable—but also refined. It has the spirit of a truck, wrapped in the skin of a ute.

SUPERIOR ENGINEERING

People rely on you, and you can rely on your D-MAX. The D-MAX is full of engineering details that only a truck manufacturer would think of, but each one makes this ute truck tough. Here are some that are easy to see when you pop the bonnet.

Fancy replacing your timing belt? Probably not – so the D-MAX doesn’t have one. Instead it uses a heavy duty steel timing chain to last the life of the engine.

The ladder chassis has been specifically designed for the D-MAX. Its heavy duty design ensures long term durability, and improves stability whether loaded or towing.

This unique detail eliminates backlash on engine deceleration, reducing engine wear.

Isuzu’s diesel engines are built to withstand higher temperatures and pressures than other engines, so the D-MAX 3.0L turbo diesel is tough by nature, hard-wearing and provides the legendary Isuzu reliability that you have come to expect.

 

SUPERIOR TESTING

We didn’t just build this ute; we’ve tested it over and over again. 4,000,000km of testing in the hardest conditions: searing heat, torrential rain—even snow. That’s the equivalent of 100 times around the earth to prove that the D-MAX is built to last.
