Interested in an Isuzu D-Max?

    Isuzu Ute Australia has detailed the price and specifications of its updated D-Max ute for 2024.

    Pricing is up by $500 and $3000, depending on the variant. The range now opens at $32,700 before on-roads or $32,490 drive-away for the SX Single Cab Chassis 4×2 1.9-litre manual, and extends to $70,500 before on-roads or $67,990 drive-away for the X-Terrain.

    For 2024 a total of 25 D-Max variants are now offered. Two manual-equipped variants have been axed, including the SX Space Cab Chassis 4×4 3.0L and the LS-U Crew Cab Ute 4×4 3.0L.

    The X-Rider, which was added as a limited-edition variant last year, has now been made a permanent member of the range. It’s available exclusively with the 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel, six-speed automatic and four-wheel drive, and is priced from $59,500 before on-roads.

    Outside, the entire D-Max range has received a tweaked front fascia including new grille designs and air curtains nestled within the fog light area. The indicators have also been integrated into the headlight assembly.

    Other exterior tweaks include different bonnet creases, revised tailgate bodywork, as well as combination LED tail lights on certain Ute variants.

    The mid-spec LS-M Crew Cab Ute, as well as the X-Rider, have also received a softer and more compliant three-leaf standard-duty rear suspension setup. The LS-M Crew Cab Chassis still sticks with the three-leaf heavy-duty rear suspension setup however.

    Inside the D-Max has received a revised instrument cluster setup. Entry-level models stick with a 4.2-inch multi-information display and dials that are claimed to have easier to read fonts and graphic.

    LS-U, LS-U+ and X-Terrain variants get a larger 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster with smaller dials flanking it.

    All D-Max variants also receive a new touchscreen infotainment system that has new software with integrated off-road and ADAS (for certain variants) functions, as well as a pair of tuning and volume dials in place of the push buttons on the pre-facelift model.

    SX, LS-M and X-Rider variants receive an 8.0-inch touchscreen, whereas LS-U, LS-U+ and X-Terrain variants receive a larger 9.0-inch touchscreen.

    All systems sport USB-C connectivity, DAB+ digital radio, and wired and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    D-Max buyers previously required a cable to use Android Auto.

    Another major feature D-Max 4×4 models pick up for 2024 is Rough Terrain Mode, which is an electronic off-road traction control aid that first debuted in the current-gen MU-X in 2021.

    Unlike the system in the MU-X, however, the D-Max’s Rough Terrain Mode is able to work with the rear differential locked, maximising traction.

    Other tweaks the 2024 Isuzu D-Max range has received includes revised tyre pressure monitoring (LS-U and up), new ‘Gen4’ stereo camera, adaptive cruise control with stop and go across the entire range, updated lane-keep assist, welcome headlight and welcome light functions, as well as a revised reversing camera that’s now fitted to cab-chassis models and has a wider field of view.

    The rear cross-traffic alert system has been replaced by a more sophisticated rear cross-traffic assist feature, which will apply the brakes if it detects you’re about to have a collision while reversing.


    A total of 25 variants are offered.

    The 2024 Isuzu D-Max continues to be offered with a choice of two four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines: a 1.9-litre with 110kW of power and 350Nm of torque, and a 3.0-litre with 140kW and 450Nm.

    Both are mated with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with drive sent either to the rear wheels only or through a part-time four-wheel drive system with a two-speed transfer case.

    The latter offers switchable 2H, 4H and 4L options plus a standard locking rear differential.

    For 2024, 4×4 models also gain Rough Terrain Mode which first debuted in the current-gen MU-X but in the D-Max can be operated in tandem with the rear diff lock.


    Claimed combined fuel economy for the 2024 Isuzu D-Max with the 1.9-litre ranges between 6.7L and 7.0L/100km, depending on the variant.

    D-Max variants with the 3.0-litre on the other hand are claimed to use between 7.7 and 8.0L/100km.

    All 2024 Isuzu D-Max variants have a 76-litre fuel tank which require diesel.


    The dual-cab 2024 Isuzu D-Max with the pickup tub measures 5280mm long and 1870mm wide, or 1880mm wide in the range-topping X-Terrain.

    The entire range has a 3125mm wheelbase, and the tallest D-Max Terrain measures 1810mm tall.

    The 3.0-litre D-Max has a braked towing capacity of 3500kg and has a 350kg maximum down ball load. The 1.9-litre D-Max on the other hand has a braked towing capacity of 2800kg with the manual and 3000kg with the automatic, as well as maximum down ball loads of 280kg and 300kg, respectively.

    Unbraked towing capacity across the entire range is 750kg.

    Maximum payload depends on the variant from 930kg in the X-Terrain to 1400kg in the SX Single Cab Chassis 4×2 1.9L manual.

    The Isuzu D-Max was tested by ANCAP in 2020 and earned a five-star rating. It received a design change to the driver’s knee airbag and instrument panel in July 2022 and was re-tested, maintaining its five-star rating.
