Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has unveiled the new Isuzu D-Max Boondock 4×4 through a private launch for the media. Another live Facebook public launch later at 5 pm will give the public a closer look at IPC’s latest pick-up offering.
IPC President Hajime Koso proudly introduced the 2020 D-MAX Boondock 4×4 as “purposely named after the mountains. The Boondock boasts rough and rugged styling, coupled with the exceptional engine performance of Isuzu – perfect for off-road driving.”
Built upon the popular 3.0L D-Max 4×4 LS-A model, the Boondock trademark adds an even tougher, more rugged image with the tried-and-tested performance that the Isuzu D-Max is known for.
The 2020 Isuzu D-Max Boondock 4×4 is powered by the familiar 4JJ1-TCX inline-4 Blue Power 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine that produces 117 hp and 380 Nm of torque. Power is sent through all four wheels via a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.
This level of power and efficiency is also expressed in the D-MAX Boondock’s design and accessories. The monotube nitrogen-charged front and rear shock absorber ensure an instantaneous response to changing road conditions, offering faster damping reaction. The result is an improved steering control in whatever terrain and driving condition.
Steel side steps not only offer easy access but valuable protection to the pickup body. Its honeycomb design with the “Boondock” logo is also easy to clean and provides better traction during ingress and egress.
The 2020 D-MAX Boondock 4×4 is fitted with 265/70 R17 all-terrain tires wrapped around matte black off-road rally type design R17 rims. The Boondock decal on the tailgate is now paired with a new hood and body customized graphics that pay tribute to the country’s highest “boondock”, which is Mt. Apo.
The 2020 D-MAX Boondock 4×4 is now available for P1,725,000 for the manual variant and P1,795,000 for the automatic. As a part of Isuzu’s Monsoon Promo, a P95,000 discount is available until the end of June.
