    Default MediaRelease: Isuzu D-MAX 3.0 TD Double Cab X-Rider Auto Makes its Debut

    PORT ELIZABETH - The X-Rider nameplate has fast established itself as a popular model within the Isuzu D-MAX line-up, offered with the 2.5 HO diesel engine. This year Isuzu is taking things further with the introduction of a special edition D-MAX 3.0 TD Double Cab X-Rider Automatic.

    "The X-Rider nameplate, which was first introduced in South Africa as a limited edition model in 2016, has been a great success for us. Until now we have only offered the X-Rider as a midrange vehicle available with the 100 kW 2.5 litre engine," says Dominic Rimmer, Executive, Technical Services at Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSA).

    "Based on the popularity of the X-Rider, we felt it would make sense to match this nameplate with our most powerful engine, while retaining the attributes which make the X-Rider so popular. The 3 litre X-Rider has an imposing presence on the road with a rugged and sporty look which sets it apart from regular D-MAX models."

    The 3.0 X-Rider Automatic is powered by the familiar 4 cylinder 130 kW turbo diesel engine from Isuzu. Matched with a 6 speed automatic gearbox, max power output is reached at a low 3 600 rpm, with max torque of 380 Nm between 1800 and 2800 rpm.

    X-Rider comes standard with a black roof rails; black sports bar with Red X-Rider logo; black running boards; eight inch AX2 Radio with multifunction colour touchscreen; black tailgate handle with rearview camera, and a 3.5 ton towbar. The seats are covered in black partial leather with red stitching. The 3.0 TD X-Rider is available in just three colours; Summit White, Switchblade Silver, Pull Me Over Red.

    The vehicle rides on standard eighteen inch diamond cut alloy wheels on all terrain tyres. Eighteen inch all black alloy wheels are available as a no-cost option.

    The 3.0 TD Double Cab X-Rider Automatic slots in below the standard 3.0 Auto LX which retails for R 515 478.25 (excl. VAT), while the 3.0 X-Rider comes in just R 58 000 more than the 250 HO Double cab X-Rider Auto which retails for R421 043.48 (excl. VAT). This is great news for customers who like the X-Rider look but want the benefit of the added pulling power of the more powerful four cylinder three litre engine.

    Pricing for the special edition D-MAX 3.0 TD Double Cab X-Rider Auto starts at R479 217.39 (excluding VAT)

    The three mid range X-Rider derivatives continue as part of the Isuzu D-MAX model range with prices as follows:

    250 HO Double Cab X-Rider R405 652.17
    250 HO Double Cab X-Rider A/T R421 043.48
    250 HO Double Cab X-Rider 4x4 R451 478.26

    We will be lucky to have it then. That was the planned launch date prior to Covid and I have heard they are now an estimated 4 months behind on the project. My best guess is early 2022.
