Isuzu KB goes under the knife
A regular top ten seller with well over 1 000 units being shifted each month, Isuzu has given its KB bakkie range a mid-life facelift with the additions of new tech and engine revisions.
Comprising of 18 models again offered in three cab configurations, changes on all, bar the base single cab, includes the standard fitment of stability control with a new Bluetooth compatible sound system replacing the previous dot matrix unit on LE models.
On LX and Extended Cab models, the overhaul is less dramatic and mainly includes upgraded interior fabrics.
Completing the revisions, double cab LE models now comes fitted as standard with cruise control, while the range topping LX features LED daytime running lights, keyless entry/go and a brand new 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, Wi-Fi, reverse camera and a DVD system.
Up front, the previous low pressure 58 kW 2.5-litre turbodiesel engine has been retained on base single models with all LE versions making use of a revised version of the previous 85 kW 2.5-litre D-TEQ unit. Now equipped with a variable geometry turbocharger, the engine produces 100 kW and 320 N.m of torque with drive going to the rear or all-four wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox.
Sitting at the top of the range, the stalwart 3.0-litre D-TEQ remains the sole offering on LX models with the biggest addition being an optional five-speed automatic transmission on the double cab four-wheel drive. Power is once again rated at 130 kW and 380 N.m of torque.
A five year / 120 000 km warranty and five year / 90 000 km service is standard on all models.
