2013 Isuzu D-Max | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the 2013 Isuzu D-Max. 2013 Isuzu D-Max is one brand new car from Isuzu that was released in 2013. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2013 Isuzu D-Max.
Isuzu D-Max is a pickup truck made by Isuzu. It shares the same platform with several General Motors (GM) mid size trucks in the United States. These being the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Isuzu i Series. The Chevrolet Colorado name is also applied to a rebadged version of the D-Max in the Middle East and Thailand, although not identical to the American version. The original D-Max is sold alongside the Chevrolet Colorado in the Thai market where they are both built. In Australasia between 2003 and 2008, the D-Max was marketed as the Holden Rodeo, but has since been relaunched as the Holden Colorado. The Isuzu D-Max itself was also introduced in Australia during 2008, selling alongside the Holden offering. in the United Kingdom, the D-Max is offered there as the Isuzu Rodeo.
In Australia and New Zealand, the D-Max was sold as the third generation Holden Rodeo (RA) between 2003 and 2008, before being facelifted into the form of the Holden Colorado. This was a result of the GM-Isuzu split resulting in GM losing the right to use the “Rodeo” name. As with Rodeo, Colorado is available as either two- or four wheel drive and in a range of body styles including single cab, space cab and crew cab. Power is provided by a range of petrol and diesel engines. Of the petrol engines, Holden offers a 2.4 litre four cylinder as well as the Australian made 3.6 litre Alloytec engine. The diesel powerplant is a four cylinder Isuzu 4JJ1 unit displacing 3.0 litres. The main difference between the Colorado and the Rodeo is the revised body work from the A pillar forward.
