2021 Isuzu D-Max: A mechanical deep-dive into the new-gen ute

After six years of development, the all-new 2021 Isuzu D-Max has finally landed in Australia. Taking over from the long-serving and outgoing model (which arrived way back in 2012), this new model enters a segment that’s more competitive than ever. Aside from the big jumps in terms of safety, interior and technology, the 2021 Isuzu D-Max also brings a lot of changes and updates under the skin. In this instalment, we look into the new nuts and bolts of the new D-Max.

2021 Isuzu D-Max prices rise by up to $8100, targets Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger

The 2021 Isuzu D-Max is the most advanced ute in its class, but the leap in technology has brought significant price rises that put it in a head-on battle with the top-selling Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger. The Isuzu D-Max already outsells the Toyota HiLux and Ford Ranger in Thailand – where all three utes are made for the Asia-Pacific region – and now the company is taking aim at the big guns in Australia.

Skoda offers extended warranty and fixed-price servicing to Victorian buyers

Skoda is doing its best to entice Victorians stuck at home and day-dreaming about a new car. The Czech brand is offering a free seven-year, unlimited kilometre warranty for all new and demonstrator Skoda models sold in Victoria, which is two years more than the standard warranty. New and demo Skodas will also come with a three-year, 45,000km scheduled service pack for new cars delivered in the southern state, also at no extra cost.
