New 2013 Isuzu D-Max, exactly like the Chevrolet Colorado but cheaper?

The all-new ISUZU D-MAX is developed alongside its brother the Chevrolet Colorado. As such, they share a related chassis and interior design, which is a great thing! The interior and ride comfort will make you feel like you are in a sedan car, instead of a pick-up truck. Ideal for carrying Ikea furniture or boosting your ego, the ISUZU D-MAX is great value for money! 

The all-new ISUZU D-MAX shares its body construction, chassis platform, mechanical component and interior design such as the dashboard, centre stack, steering wheel and doors with Chevrolet Colorado. Chevrolet Colorado owners should rejoice as spare parts will, without a doubt, be much cheaper due to the cross-model sharing and usage of parts. The main differentiation factor will be the ISUZU D-MAX's aggressive angular front fascia with upswept headlights and a more conventional grille design, compared to the Colorado's upmarket appeal.

ISUZU's iTEQ 2.5-Litre engine now produces 87kW with 280Nm of torque and 101kW with 320Nm of torque thanks to the usage of the VGS turbo.
