“Born to Freestyle” is the way Isuzu UTE Australia describes its D-MAX X-RUNNER, available now in new limited-edition Pearl White and Magnetic Red Mica finishes.
For $54,990 AUD (drive away pricing), you can buy one of only 645 production units with exclusive red, black, and grey interior and exterior X-RUNNER styling.
“The D-MAX X-RUNNER was first introduced back in 2011 to great success, with the latest X-RUNNER made available in 2017 seeing even more success amongst drivers seeking a bold-looking 1-tonne ute,” said Isuzu UTE Australia’s Managing Director, Hiroyasu Sato.
“With a number of unique features and accessories inside and out, and bolstered by its exclusive styling and exclusive paintwork, we fully expect that the 2019 X-RUNNER will be even more successful than its predecessors.”
The X-RUNNER & LS-T
Besides styling differences from the D-MAX 4x4 LS-T on which it’s based, the X-RUNNER also sports an under-rail tub liner and a sports bar, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and rear parking assist sensors. It has push-button start, satellite navigation, and a rear-view camera.
Both the LS-T and X-RUNNER have a 3-litre Isuzu turbo diesel with 430 newton metres of torque and 3.5 tonnes of towing capacity. A six-speed automatic puts the power to the wheels. The utes both have leather accents on the interior, as well as a six-way adjustable electric driver’s seat and Isuzu’s PESS (Passive Entry and Start System).
Updates to the LS-T for 2019 include matte black, 18-inch aluminium-alloy wheels with machined faces; new sidesteps made of FRP (fibre-reinforced polymer); and matte black roof rail and body highlights.
Service Plus 6-6-7
Isuzu also has enhanced its owner service plan for model year 2019 D-MAX and MU-X models. The package now includes a six-year warranty, six years of roadside assistance, and seven years of capped servicing prices.
