    if the model coming to SA is the same shape as the Youtube vids, the front end is fugly to say the least. Rear space in the double cab appears a little small too.

    Interesting, no tie downs visible around the bak.
    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    normally the tie down around the bak comes on the work horse derivatives, the upper specced models will prolly only have on the inside. I picked this up on the current D-Teqs as the LX models doesnt have and the work horse ones did

    Read the report in the CAR Mag today, looks like the local boys are doing a lot to make sure the new one is up to standard for local conditions. One thing disapoint though, they say NO STABILITY CONTROLL ? In al the other markets it does have, so why not in SA or it was just a typo ?
    Anyone out there that knows maybe ?

    Where can one read the article?

    Is that trailer stability control, traction control or ESP? Is that for all models?

    Why?

    Isuzu & GM are two separate companies.

    In Australia, for example, you get the New Isuzu KB300 AND you get the Holden (Chev) Colorado 2.8.

    Besides, while the GM 2.8 by Motori Venturi has higher outputs than the Isuzu's 300 D-Teq - guess which will last longer...

    This is true...
    Look at the new Isuzu SUV (I posted the AU report on here MU7) it will have the exact same platform and might look like a trail blazer or not? Also going to run the RT50 motor...
    As the rumours gets more and more, Isuzu is delaying the "new" motor for when the New Hilux (codename IMV2) will be launch in 2014 (2015 SA)... And apparently the Isuzus will run a totally different motor then the 2.8 in a few years... They did this with the D Max to Dteq as well...
