Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Max – Car Advice from Car Business

Hi, Bob Aldons from Car Business on the job with news on a new model from Isuzu Ute. The New Isuzu D-Max V-Cross as featured at the Thai Motor Show is now on sale in Thailand, and it can only be a short time before it arrives for sale in Australia. While Isuzu pitched it as a competitor to the Chevrolet Colorado (Holden Colorado here) and the Ford Ranger WildTrak the now ancient 3.0-litre diesel engine will no doubt hang a question mark over the success of this good looking model.

My strongest advice to anyone considering a ‘top of the line’ dual cab purchase is to carefully evaluate each one – Isuzu D-Max, Ford Ranger Wildtrak, Toyota Hilux SR5, and the recently released Volkswagen Amarok V6. Each vehicle has its own idiosyncrasies and just because a buddy has a good run from one, doesn’t mean that you’re able to live with the nuances of that particular brand. And when you’ve picked your favorite, get in touch with me at Car Business. I know which rocks to turn over and which bushes to shake to get you the absolutely best deal. 

Thanks to our colleagues at Indian Auto Blog for this article.

Isuzu showcased the new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Max 4×4 at the 2016 Thai Motor Expo held from 1-12 December. It rivals the Chevrolet Colorado High Country and Ford Ranger WildTrak

The new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 4×4 features redesigned projector LED headlamps with LED daytime running lights, garnish elements for the headlights, bonnet and wheel arches, front bumper guard, cargo bed-liner and 6-spoke 18-inch wheels.

The interior of the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 4×4 has also been given a mild update. The new D-Max V-Cross 4×4’s features two-tone leather upholstery, multifunction steering wheel and new plastic trim on the inside. The updated model is also equipped with cruise control and Kenwood infotainment system with integrated navigation.

The new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 4×4 is powered by the 4JJ1-TCX 3.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 177 PS at 3,600 rpm and 380 Nm of torque at 1,800-2,800 rpm. Unlike the facelifted Isuzu D-Max 1.9 Ddi, the new D-Max V-Cross does not get a 6-speed manual transmission.

Along with a 5-speed manual transmission, the new D-Max V-Cross is available with a new 6-speed automatic transmission. The updated model, which features engine stop-start system for improved efficiency, is now on sale in Thailand.


What’s Car Business all about?

Car Business is a multi-dimensional automotive company that aims to help you to buy your new car for a better price than you can do on your own. Based on the Redcliffe Peninsula about 15 minutes from Brisbane Airport and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Car Business is located in an area that allows us to pick and choose from Brisbane’s finest new cars for sale.

The ‘go to’ Brisbane car buying agents, Car Business, is so much better than a car broker – first and foremost, Car Business is an experienced Car Buyer’s Advocacy service. Our experienced staff will stand alongside you and act on your behalf to help you buy your new car at a better price than you can directly through new car dealers.

My goal with Car Business is to provide timely and informative articles on everything to do with cars – used car purchase, new car sales, car service, car finance, car insurance, aftermarket car protection products – everything.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides current automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to knowledgeable car industry friends. To those of you without someone to talk to, I’m your expert – the car guy.

I’ve been in the car industry since 1978 – covering all aspects that consumers need advice on. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – The Car Professor, The Car Doctor, and recently the Car Guy, but the bottom line is that I know a lot about this industry. Whenever someone needs some advice – they call me.

In general terms my car advice is free – it’s just something I like to do and my goal is to give back to the community that has treated me so well.

Good quality, Guaranteed Used Cars

I have access to good quality cars – you can see my current stock by clicking through to I’m also able to search out that particular car that you’re finding difficult to find. I’ve got a great dealer community that I’ve dealt with for many years, and these cars don’t even hit the websites. I specialize in South East Queensland but in some cases, can look after interstate customers

Other areas that I specialize in are fairly widespread.

Genuine Spare Parts, Merchandise and Other Cool Stuff is an online spare parts business specializing in Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Isuzu Ute and Volkswagen. SO if you’re looking for anything from crash parts, electrical components, wheels, t-shirts or anything else, let me assist you with that search.  You can rely on genuine spares to procure parts at better than trade price and certainly better than you can buy in Australia. My prices are reduced by about 30% on what you’d expect to pay here in Australia

Car Business Protects Your Car

Car Business is a local agent for Williams Paint and Interior ProtectionAutoGard and CleanGard, SunX window tinting.

Don’t get ripped off by car dealers wanting to make a huge profit – our window tinting prices start from $175 up to $450 for cars that dealers want to charge $750 for.

Car Finance and Car Insurance

My finance and insurance franchise, 1800Approved Finance, will help you get finance for your car at rates much lower than a dealer will offer. For a homeowner, we’re talking from 4.99%. Your bank won’t even offer you that.
