“We are pleased to be able to offer our updated 2022 D-MAX range to our Australian customers earlier than initially forecasted,” Isuzu UTE Australia managing director Hiroyasu Sato said.

“Fast-tracking its availability ensures we get the improved product and a wider variety of options into market sooner, which essentially helps to improve customer satisfaction—which has always been a priority to us.”

The 2022 D-MAX range features a lane support system switch too, allowing you to seamlessly toggle lane keep assist type functions on and off. Lane Support Systems on-or-off. That will be a welcome addition for many.

The updated D-MAX X-TERRAIN , which has been enhanced with factory-fitted tow bar receiver, red stitching and black interior appointments, auto-dimming mirror and heated front seats and door mirrors is set to be offered at $62,990 drive away.

The new entry level model, the D-MAX SX single cab, has been updated with new RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre turbo-diesel engine, returning class-leading fuel economy of 7.0-litres/100km, will have a drive away price of $29,990 when it arrives.

Inside the 2022 Isuzu D-MAX 4×4 X-Terrain

In updating the range, with six new variants in all, Isuzu has dropped two of its existing offerings, including the D-MAX SX Space Cab Ute 4×2 auto and D-MAX SX Crew Cab Ute 4×4 manual.

Other changes include the addition of a tow bar receiver on the LS-U and LS-U+ (as well as the X-TERRAIN), a new tub liner on the LS-U and LS-U+, and rear parking sensors on the LS-M Crew Cab Ute. Cab Chassis variants can now also be opted in alloy or steel trays.

There’s also an interior update for the LS-U Crew Cab Ute, a favourite amongst tourers, caravaners and families, with the additional convenience of smart keyless entry, with push button start, walk away door l and an auto-dimming rear view mirror.

It also scores a factory-fitted under rail tub liner, while the LS-U Crew Cab Chassis models are equipped with a 1,800mm-long alloy or steel tray. But it’s the range topping X-TERRAIN that gets the most love of all.

The 2022 iteration adds variable heated front seats, dual vanity mirror lights, auto-dimming rear view mirror and heated door mirrors. New signature X-TERRAIN ‘red’ stitching replaces the white of 2021 too.

Overall, the interior is bolder, darker and features more of that X-factor—with a new blacked-out instrument cluster with X-TERRAIN insignia, and tasteful black trim accents across the dash, doors, steering wheel and air vents.

The 2022 Isuzu D-MAX range comes with the brand’s Service Plus 6-7-7; encompassing a 6-year 150,000km warranty, up to 7-years roadside assist, and 7-years capped price servicing.
