After a thorough review of the new D-Max LS-U Crew Cab Simone takes the top of the lineup X-Terrain for a road trip to some lovely Australian beaches.
Engine: 3L Turbo Diesel
Power: 140 kW@ 3,600 rpm
Torque: 450 Nm @ 1,600 rpm
Transmission: 6 Speed Auto 4WD
Fuel Consumption (combined): 8L/100km
Being the top trim, we will focus more on what it is like to drive and live with, in a way that most people will use the X-Terrain. While all UTEs are conceived as workhorses, the top trims for many of them are now far more luxurious and obviously aimed for more than just hauling working equipment. Many of these will be used by families with an adventurous spirit, those who spend their time between shuttling kids to school and having fun outdoors over the weekend.
That’s what Simone does, she takes the D-Max for a short drive through the city, then drives down to some of Australia’s southern beaches on a highway and before testing in some off-road conditions, including a run on the beach.
