The new Isuzu D-Max V-Cross Z-Prestige limited edition model comes with added features and safety and also new diesel model and a new automatic transmission. It packs in a newly developed 1.9 litre diesel engine that is paired with a segment first 6 speed automatic transmission. Prior to the launch of the Z-prestige variant, the V-Cross pick-up was only available with manual transmission.
The new 1.9 litre diesel motor is capable of delivering 150 PS of peak power and 350 Nm of top torque, which makes it more powerful than the existing 2.5 litre engine in the lower variants of the pick-up paired to a standard 5 speed manual transmission. The 1.9 litre oil burner also comes with all-4 wheel drive system like the 2.5 litre unit. The new engine is also BS4 compliant like the bigger motor. However, while the new motor is going to get BS6 complaint with an upgrade, the 2.5 litre engine is likely to be discontinued.
