ACTION AUTO ZAMBIA, known as ISUZU Zambia; introduced the All-New Advanced Spec Model the ISUZU the ISUZU D-MAX 3.0 Ddi Double Cab V-CROSS to Zambia at R&G Events AUTOEXPO LUSAKA which took place at the R&G Arena, Ngwerere Area, a farming suburb in the Northern outskirts of the capital, LUSAKA; on the 5th and 6th May 2023.
Patrons to the expo were offered an opportunity to test drive the V-CROSS on a 2.7km Offroad Track -built specifically for AutoExpo Lusaka; to provide first-hand experience of the outstanding comfort, superior performance, sleek and modern styling, intuitive safety, and advanced automotive tech that the model has to offer.
When it comes to getting the job done, there’s no vehicle more suitable than the Isuzu D-Max, a rugged all-rounder that just works: a master of all trades and the perfect blend of rugged capability whether off-road or load-lugging paired with both performance and comfort.
The Isuzu D-Max is becoming a household name in Zambia, and the much-anticipated wait for the V-CROSS is now over, almost a year after the 7th Generation ISUZU D-MAX model lineup was introduced to the country which included the All-New RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre four-cylinder intercooled turbodiesel engine and a refreshed proven and trusted 3.0l turbodiesel with outputs of 140kW/450Nm; raising the bar significantly in all areas, including technology, safety, comfort, refinement and fuel economy.
The introduction of the 3.0 Ddi V-CROSS raises the bar even higher, with the option of 4×2 or 4×4 models loaded to the hilt with standard kit. Befitting the top specification level in the new ISUZU D-MAX range, this includes 18-inch alloy wheels in dark grey matte, gun metallic treatment for the door handles, front bumper cladding, fender flares, radiator grille, and hooped sports bar, along with medium grey side steps.
The cabin of the V-CROSS derivatives smacks of luxury and comfort and is finished in piano black. Leather seats with eight-way electric adjustment and lumbar support, and a multi-display digital instrument cluster contribute to an altogether pleasing driving experience.
The V-CROSS also comes standard with Auto High Beam lighting and the array of safety features is truly impressive. The Intelligent Driver Assist System (IDAS) on the new ISUZU D-MAX V-CROSS model operates with cutting-edge stereo camera, sonar, and radar technologies. This enables an extensive range of active driving aids including ISUZU’s Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Turn Assist Auto Transmission Pedal Misapplication Function, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Attention Assist, Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), Lane Departure Prevention (LDP), Lane Keep Assist System (LKAS), Emergency Lane Keeping (ELK), Rear Cross Traffic Alert, front and rear radar and Blind Spot Monitor. The Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) comes with Inter-urban cyclist and pedestrian detection making it a perfect fit for inner-city drives. Additional innovative safety features include the Multi Collision Brake (MCB) that will automatically apply the brakes when the airbags are deployed; and a far side airbag that prevents the front seat occupants’ heads from contacting each other.
