The Isuzu D-Max XTR prototype was revealed at the CV Show 2019 and, since its launch last year, the distinctive XTR has become a successful model for Isuzu, forming part of its ‘Adventure’ range. Now, Isuzu has enhanced it even further with the striking XTR Colour Edition.
It features a custom-designed colour coded body kit and green Isuzu badge to refresh the look.
Unique and quality finishes
The paint finish has been upgraded so that the front bumper guard, bonnet protector and headlight frames are colour-coded with the body.
The fog light surrounds and grille have remained black to contrast the body colour sections and to maintain some of that traditional XTR aggressive styling. The green badge is a popular accessory on the original XTR but comes as standard on the Colour Edition.
Green is the theme
As with the standard XTR, this edition is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels. These 6-spoke alloys covered in satin black features a deep dish design and is wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain Plus tyres.
The tailgate spoiler has also been colour-coded while the rear light surrounds are painted and the rear bumper also incorporates some body colour elements.
The step remains as the black material finish and the exhaust finisher inserts are also black for contrast. Flashes of vibrant green, can be seen from behind from the rear anti-roll bar and rear dampers.
The heated front sports seats are upholstered in leather, suede and carbon fibre leather with contrast green overstitching.
An XTR logo is embroidered on the back rest of each front seat and is repeated on the rear centre headrest.
The steering wheel is trimmed in leather and suede with green overstitching. Each is individually finished with green overstitching that is sewn on by hand.
The D-Max is equipped with a specially designed Pedders suspension with a 250mm ground clearance that gives it superb on and off-road performance.
Stopping is done courtesy of fully vented and slotted front brake discs that work in conjunction with Kevlar ceramic front brake pads.
It is available in Splash White, Titanium Silver Met, Obsidian Grey Mica and Cosmic Black Mica. The special edition bakkie will be available in all four colours but only a limited amount of each will be produced.
