2020 Isuzu D-Max LS-T review

We take a final look at one of Australia's mainstay utes before the door hits it on the way out.

Isuzu D-Max 4x2 SX single cab review

This ute is the opposite of Jason Gillespie: it's all business at the back.

Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 2

During part one of our trip to Tasmania's wild west with Isuzu and its I-Venture Club, we discovered some of the more picturesque parts of the Apple Isle and learned a little about local history. The next two days would take no prisoners, however. We were to air down and explore the Henty Dunes, and get a little crossed up on the loose sand...

Take a walk on Tasmania's wild side: Part 1

I’m sure of it. Tasmania is the most pretty, untouched, unfettered and most natural part of Australia. In my time, I’ve had the privilege of exploring the more southern areas of the Apple Isle. Now, courtesy of Isuzu and its increasingly popular I-Venture Club, I’ve seen what may be, the most picturesque part of the gem that lies just south of the mainland...

5 Things: 2020 Isuzu D-Max LS-T

It’s not a market leader in terms of ride and refinement, nor is it endowed with the latest and greatest in technology. But in terms of sales in the competitive 4x4 ute segment, the Isuzu D-Max has always managed to punch well above its weight with Australian buyers.

11 Utes, 1 winner: 2019 Dual-cab ute comparison: Best ute of 2019

Journey to the Deep South of the Eyre Peninsula with Isuzu I-Venture

The Eyre Peninsula in South Australia is one of the most iconic 4WD destinations on this vast continent of ours. This Australian gem should be on the list of any avid adventurer. Sure, it’s difficult to get to, but once you do, oh boy. It is something else. It boggles the mind that anyone ever leaves. It is that stunning.

2018 Isuzu D-Max LS-T review: Off-road prowess tested

The platform the Isuzu D-Max sits on was first launched over six years ago, so does this hard-working ute still have the core elements of a work-truck-cum-weekend-lifestyle-ute?

Best ute 2019 comparison: Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Isuzu D-Max v Holden Colorado v Volkswagen Amarok v Mazda BT-50 v Mercedes X-Class v Ssangyong Musso XLV v LDV T60

We test 11 of the best double-cab utes on sale in Australia today, including towing, loading, in the city and suburbs, and off-road.

2018 Ford Ranger v Toyota HiLux v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-MAX v Mazda BT-50 v Volkswagen Amarok

Dual-cab utes are expected to be more versatile today than ever before. Rough and tough is not enough. The flagship versions must be comfortable inside, safe, and look the part because people want show ponies as well as workhorses. Consider, for a moment, that the eight most popular dual-cab models managed 193,000 sales in Australia last year, which equals 16 per cent of the entire new vehicle market...

Ute comparison: Which ute has the best tub?

They’re more likely to carry dirty nappies and road bikes than a bale of hay, but all eight of the cars on our 2018 dual-cab mega test are, you know, dual-cab utes. That means they still need to be fit for hard work. Has the transition to a life of luxury undermined the inherent practicality of these one-time work vehicles? Here’s a look at how the tray on each stacks up...

How Australia shaped the 2021 Mazda BT-50

Mazda Australia played a pivotal role in the new generation BT-50 ute, after a partnership that spanned almost half a century ended with Ford. Development of the 2021 Mazda BT-50 started five years ago, and Australia was the driving force. The Mazda BT-50 is not a global model for the Japanese brand, however it is critical for Australia...

Isuzu D-MAX Owner Reviews

2014 Isuzu D-Max LS-M Hi-Ride (4x4) review

It was purchased in February 2015. The only warranty problem was a leaking rear brake light seal into the cabin behind the rear seat. Excellent sales but mediocre service department at the place it was purchased from. I changed dealerships after 70,000km and the warranty was accepted and repaired with no fuss...

2015 Isuzu D-MAX LS-U Hi-Ride (4x4) review

I've owned my D-Max for just over a year. Since buying it I've added a snorkel, bullbar, winch, rear recovery bar, oil catch can, and LED driving lights. I find it comfortable, quiet in the cabin, and economical. The transmission and clutch feel light and solid at the same time.  The two glove boxes are handy with an extra 12volt outlet...

2014 Isuzu D-MAX LS-Terrain High-Ride (4x4) Review

The ride is very comfy and stable, plus with the rack-and-pinion steering, the turning circle is just like driving a car. With the standard tyres from the factory, I have only needed to replace them recently, after having traveled over 65,000km. The 5-speed automatic is excellent in towing...

2015 Isuzu D-MAX SX (4x4) Review

This is the 8th Isuzu built vehicle I have owned (including light trucks), so to say Im a bit of a fan is an understatement, but for good reason. Ive spent a total of only $900 on repairs with well over 1...
