The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is one of the most sought-after 4x4 pickup truck in the country. The BS6 update to the vehicle is delayed due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country. However, as normal operations resume in a phased manner, the BS6 compliant version is likely to be launched soon in India.
Visually, the BS6 model will retain the design highlight from the updated version of the D-Max V-Cross that was launched in June 2019. The current design is inspired by the ‘Cyborg Orca’ as it comes with a new grille and Bi-LED headlamps. The sides feature black B-pillar, side-step with chrome and 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. The rear section gets LED taillamps and updated bumper with chrome inserts.
The black interior theme is likely to be continued from its predecessor along with the contoured seats that were introduced in the facelift model. As for convenience, the new V-Cross will get the PESS (passive entry and start/stop system) feature and a USB charging port in the second row. The five-seat vehicle gets a seven-inch touch screen audio system with USB input, DVD, AUX, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity.
Under the hood, the BS6 compliant Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is expected to be powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine. In the BS4 form, this engine produced 134bhp and 320Nm of torque at 1800-2800rpm. The BS6 version is likely to produce similar performance figures.
