2018 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross
While Isuzu may be a relatively new brand in India's passenger car market, the name dates back a long way, when Isuzu supplied engines to Hindustan motors for use in the Ambassadors and Contessas of the time.
While lifestyle pickup trucks were only relatively recently introduced to the Indian market, the Isuzu takes the credit for being the first truck that introduced creature comforts similar to what you'd find in a car. It was a welcome departure from the capable yet extemely old and utilitarian trucks from Tata and Mahindra.
While in India these things look MASSIVE next to the puny autorickshaws and hatchbacks, the truck is actually a rebadged version of the Chevy Colorado sold abroad, and in North America that's actually considered a small truck. Swipe to see the 'small' Colorado next to its huge full-size brother, the Chevy Silverado. Swipe again to see how unnecessarily large trucks have gotten over the last couple of decades 😱 especially when compared with a compact Toyota from the 80's.
The Isuzu comes with a 2.5-litre turbodiesel 4-cylinder engine that makes about 134HP, and that power can go either to the rear wheels or all 4 wheels.
Overall, this is a pretty great truck. I absolutely love the fact that this segment is finally taking off in India! It's quickly becoming the standard vehicle to buy here for anyone serious about doing hardcore adventurey things ⛺
