In this car review video, Jenna reviews the Isuzu D-Max 4×4 Crew Cab LS-M. Freshly introduced for 2017 it’s the latest edition of this D-MAX generation and probably the last one since it’s been around since 2012. In Australia, utes are a very popular vehicle choice and some of the favourites we all know include the Nissan Navara, Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger.

To deal with the competition and better tailor the D-MAX to the Australian market Isuzu added a major feature in this latest Isuzu D-MAX Ute and that is the all new diesel engine.
