2021 Isuzu D-Max SX 4x2 review

In base specification and with only two-wheel drive, does Isuzu's new ute still maintain its appeal?

2021 Isuzu D-Max LS-M review

Although the X-Terrain has the accolades, there is plenty going for this lower-middle specification D-Max. However, there is one big problem...

2021 Isuzu D-Max LS-U 4x4 crew cab review

It may not be the flagship model, but the Isuzu D-Max LS-U offers most of the must-have equipment with a more traditional styling package.

Loadspace is arguably the most crucial part of a ute’s definition. While their base function is still the same, there are a lot of different feature these days that can set them apart. From bare bones, all the way to electric roller covers, let's see what's available to you.

VFACTS: Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger, Mitsubishi Triton and Isuzu D-Max make the Top 10

The Toyota HiLux posted its strongest March result of all time last month, as it got a head-start on its run to becoming the nation’s favourite vehicle for a sixth year in a row.

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...
