under the hood



The Isuzu 3.0L turbo-diesel engine delivers a massive 140kW of power and 450Nm of torque, matched with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Using highly-advanced Isuzu common-rail diesel technology this balances the power with superior fuel efficiency. The end result is outstanding performance to tackle any hill, overtake on the freeway and tow what you like without constant visits to the fuel station.


At the heart of D-MAX is the Isuzu turbo-diesel engine range. With over a century of specialist engineering experience, the D-MAX is more than ready to handle whatever you throw at it.

3.0L Turbo-Diesel Image

3.0L Turbo-Diesel

The highly refined Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo-diesel common rail engine which offers superior fuel efficiency thanks to low friction, fuel injection optimisation and a large front-mounted intercooler.

This advanced Euro 5-compliant unit generates 140kW of power and a peak torque output of 450Nm from a low 1,600 to 2,600rpm. The high levels of torque from a low rpm provide strong take-off and acceleration and aid drivability with consistent torque output through the majority of the rev-range.

1.9L Turbo-Diesel Image

1.9L Turbo-Diesel

The new Isuzu RZ4E-TC 1.9L turbo-diesel engine option introduced to the 4x2 Single Cab Chassis range provides supreme fuel efficiency and refined operation. Generating 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque, this new engine is the ideal match to the entry level D-MAX 4x2 Single Cab Chassis models. With 2.8T+ (manual) and 3.0T+ (auto) braked towing capacity, it offers a flexible and economical option that’s ideal for fleet, tradies and small business operators.

6-Speed Transmission Image

6-Speed Transmission

The ‘Rev-Tronic’ 6-speed automatic gearbox with sequential sports mode automatically selects the most appropriate shift and lock-up points according to the driver’s behaviour, vehicle load and road speed.

The 6-speed manual transmissions benefit from a new dual mass flywheel, which absorbs vibrations and torque pulses from the engine for smoother and more efficient driveability and transmission longevity.

3.5T Pulling Power Image

3.5T Pulling Power

The 3.0L D-MAX is built to tow and can make light work of a boat, a caravan or a trailer. With 3.5 tonne towing+, the truck-based chassis of the D-MAX gives you the ability to tow pretty much anything you can throw at it.


Dirty, dusty off-road adventure is where the D-MAX really shines, with engineering and technology features that'll keep you going across all types of terrain.

Rear Differential Lock Image

Rear Differential Lock

To get you out of the toughest spots, our 4x4 models come standard with a rear differential lock. If you're on a slippery, uneven surface with the rear wheels spinning, the rear differential lock assists the low-ratio 4WD-low mode to give you the extra traction and control needed to keep moving.

800mm Wading Depth Image

800mm Wading Depth

Wherever you're planning to go, your 4x4 D-MAX is up for the task. With generous steel underbody protection, and a wading depth of up to 800mm, the D-MAX is your most reliable way to escape the everyday.

4x4 Terrain Command Image

4x4 Terrain Command

Engineered for Australian conditions, every 4x4 D-MAX features 'Terrain Command' as standard, allowing you to switch between 2WD-high and 4WD-high modes at speeds of up to 100km/h. When the going gets tough, selecting 4WD-low will provide increased traction and complete control.

Hill Start Assist and Descent Control Image

Hill Start Assist and Descent Control

Take on any challenge with Hill Start Assist which prevents vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees). Hill Descent Control gives you the confidence to tackle any downhill terrain by ensuring maximum traction.

Underbody Protection Image

Underbody Protection

The D-MAX 4x4 models have sturdy steel underbody protection, including a steel sump and transfer case guard, for extra protection in punishing off-road conditions.

Proven Fuel Efficiency

Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol engines. The D-MAX is so fuel efficient because our engineers have decades of experience in commercial transport, where every litre counts.

Advanced Fuel Injectors Image

Advanced Fuel Injectors

High pressure Common Rail fuel injection gives the most power while minimising the fuel required in the combustion process, and boosting economy.

Turbocharged Image


The D-MAX Variable Geometry System (VGS) constantly adjusts to achieve optimum air compression from low revs, which ensures minimal fuel consumption with maximum torque across the rev-range.

Aerodynamic Design Image

Aerodynamic Design

The D-MAX has undergone vigorous testing to ensure a low drag co-efficiency (Cd) figure and the most aerodynamic body design yet. Low drag not only improves fuel efficiency, it reduces cabin noise for a quieter, more comfortable ride.
