Isuzu's workhorse pickup truck gets a menacing makeover
A new special edition model of the Isuzu D-Max has just been unleashed and it looks menacing. To be built only in limited numbers, the pickup truck combines workhorse pedigree with some added flair and practicality. Say hello to the 2019 Isuzu D-Max Fury.
Painted in a distinct Magma Red, the D-Max Fury retains the go-anywhere capability of a pickup truck while also sporting a wide array of upgrades and features that allow it to be comfortable, practical and powerful no matter the situation.
Starting with the exterior makeover, the special edition D-Max receives a dark gray front grill along with a red Isuzu badge. Further adding to the pickup's menacing look are the blacked-out side mirror caps, blacked-out door handles and tailgate handle, and the dark gray 18-inch alloy wheels. Meanwhile, aiding drivers and passengers in climbing aboard the D-Max comes courtesy of gun metal side steps.
Open the doors and the D-Max Fury comes with the same color scheme as the exterior. It comes with a dark gray interior that is spruced up by two-tone cloth seats. However, those that prefer leather can have it as an option in the D-Max Fury. There's also red-contrast stitching present throughout the cabin which can be seen on the seat covers, center glovebox/armrest, dashboard panel, and leather steering wheel. Completing the interior changes on the D-Max are the Fury-branded floor mats and red Isuzu badge on the steering wheel.
A wide array of cabin amenties are present on the special edition Fury. These include manual air-conditioning, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment with reverse camera display, 12V power sockets, and front and rear USB ports.
Under the hood, the UK special D-Max Fury still comes with a stock turbo-diesel engine that produces 164 PS and 380 Nm of torque. It can be mated to either a manual transmission or automatic gearbox. Towing capacity for the D-Max Fury is rated to 3.5 tonnes.
Deliveries of the D-Max Fury in the UK will begin in January 2019. There is no word, however, if Isuzu will offer the Fury special outside of the UK. Locally, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has the X-Series D-Max. Like the Fury, it's a kitted-out version of the standard D-Max LS and gets a unique exterior finish, styling upgrades, blacked-out alloy wheels and a refined interior.
