    Default KB facelift next month??

    Been looking around for a good second hand KB300 extended cab and decided to get pricing on a new one.

    Was quoted a fairly good price, but now the one salesperson says it's because of a facelift coming next month.

    Anybody in the know that can confirm this?

    Doesn't seem like any major changes. I can live without the new infotainment centre, so lets see what the dealers can come up with.

    Yes, end of 3rd quarter/early 4th quarter of this year.
    Not much changed, most changes is at the front, new grill, headlights with DTRL.
    Inside same dash with new infotainment system and some extra LCD display between the Speedo and revcounter.
    No new engines for S.A. at this stage...

    The Duramax has been in the KB since 2012, in Australia, in 2015 the uprated (500Nm) one was released... And is quit a bakkie.. But they call their Isuzu's "Holden" (Chev in the Aussie language)

    Not true. In Aus Isuzu is Isuzu like we have it. Holden is a variation like chev is here, hence chev and Holden both using non Isuzu engines. Isuzu aus uses genuine Isuzu engines

    It's rather quiet here regarding the face-lift Isuzu ... I like it - looks great and seems to be improved under the skin too!! Hope it can take in its rightful place on the sales-charts again!!
