Finally, the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross now gets an automatic gearbox. A car unlike any other in the segment, the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is gaining cult status for what it is. The Japanese brand has now introduced a new ‘Z-Prestige’ variant which runs with a 1.9L diesel engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Isuzu offers the D-Max V-Cross to Indian customers as a lifestyle pick-up truck.

Powering the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross now is a 1.9L, 4-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine producing 150 PS of power and 350 Nm of peak torque matched to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross did not have an automatic gearbox till date. This very variant has been on sale in international markets, and has passed the test of time. The new engine might be smaller in capacity, but it is more efficient as well as powerful. This engine is BS4 compliant at the moment, and will be updated to BS6 before April 2020.
