Isuzu have added a Space Cab variant to its increasingly popular D-MAX diesel one-tonne ute and cab-chassis range.

The new Space Cab D-MAX SX 4×4 cab-chassis offers generous in-cabin room behind its two bucket seats, ideal for locking valuable gear inside or a spot of power-napping via fully reclined bucket seat backrests.

The Space Cab also features low-sill, round-cornered rear quarter windows which are also are openable at their trailing edges for added cabin ventilation with minimal wind noise.

With a standard feature list comprising air-conditioning, ABS with EBD and LSD, dual front airbags, remote central locking, MP3 compatible single CD tuner and electric windows D-MAX Space Cab also offers the longest endorsed tray load floor length (from cab to axle) among the Japanese space cab one-tonners (total endorsed tray load floor length of 2100mm).

D-MAX 4×4’s tray rear loading height is also lower than others thanks to its underslung rear leaf springs which are unusual in 4x4s but don’t cost ground clearance.

Space Cab D-MAX 4×4 also includes as standard:

  • Three-tonne maximum tow capacity
  • 225mm ground clearance
  • Ultra-low low-range first gear with anti-stall
  • Sump, fuel tank and transfer case bash plates
  • Wider track 16 x 7-inch wheels (with 245/70 tyres)
  • Wheel arch flares
  • Push-button, on-the-fly 4×4 selector

Powered by an economical and torquey 3.0-litre common-rail, variable-vane turbo-diesel engine the D-MAX develops 360Nm of torque at 1800-2800 rpm and 120kW of power at 3200rpm. Combined fuel economy returns are claimed at 8.1 litres per 100km (average).

The Isuzu D-MAX is available now from $35,800*
