CarAdvice decides: New D-Max, or new BT-50?

Never ask a parent who their favourite child is – doubly so when it's twins. Of course, the crowd in the CarAdvice content team could never cower before such tough questions, so here it is: of the new-generation 2021 Isuzu D-Max and 2021 Mazda BT-50 twins, which would our team James Ward – Director of Content D-Max – the black contrast elements on the X-Terrain look much tougher than the chrome on the Mazda, and for mine, that's a big part of a ute's appeal...

2021 Mazda BT-50 v Isuzu D-Max: Price and equipment differences

The 2021 Mazda BT-50 and Isuzu D-Max are twins under the skin, made on the same production line and – presumably – cost the same to build. But as we discovered, manufacturing cost has little to do with how car companies set prices – and there are numerous examples that defy logic...

2021 Isuzu D-Max: First ute to earn five-star safety against tougher criteria 

The all-new Isuzu D-Max ute is the first ute on sale in Australia to earn a five-star safety rating under new, more stringent criteria.

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...
