An engine downsize for the 2017 Isuzu D-Max

Isuzu has confirmed that the D-Max pick-up is getting a smaller-capacity 1.9 litre turbo-diesel engine. It's Euro 6-compliant but, because nitrogen oxide emissions aren't controlled via selective catalytic reduction, an AdBlue exhaust fluid tank isn't required.

Although performance and efficiency figures have yet to be announced, peak output and torque are rated at 161 bhp (120 kW / 164 PS) and 360 Nm (265 lb/ft) respectively. By comparison, the outgoing 2.5 litre unit produces 160 bhp (120 kW / 163 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb/ft).

Despite the lost displacement, maximum braked towing weight will still be an impressive 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs).

Deliveries of the 2017 D-Max are due to start in the spring.
