In India the trend for lifestyle pickup trucks has not caught up. We had couple of the manufacturers coming up with cars like Mahindra Scorpio Getaway, Tata Xenon but they all failed to grab buyers attention. One of the vehicle that became popular in the segment was Isuzu V-Cross. It has become so popular among buyers that V-Cross is now one of the most common utility vehicle that you’ll find among people who love the outdoors. The Isuzu V-Cross recently received a minor facelift and looks much more better and butch than before. International markets like Thailand has already received a 2020 version of the pick up. Here we have number of pictures that show how capable this pick up actually is.
Isuzu is likely to launch the 2020 version of the V-Cross by the end of this year. The Isuzu V-Cross is a very capable pick up truck and that is very evident from the images. It shows the water wading ability, approach and departure angle of the pick up along with wheel articulation. The upcoming 2020 V-Cross is a bit different from the current version that is sold in India. The upcoming Isuzu V-Cross has a longer wheelbase and is lighter than the current version too.
On the outside, the headlights get a new design and look sleeker than before. The grille and the bumper has also been redesigned. It now looks more aggressive and sporty. The rear bumper and the tail lights also get minor updates. The V-Cross will continue to be offered as a four door version with a revised interior. The car will get an updated infotainment system, climate control, semi-digital instrument cluster and so on. It will also get Terrain Command as standard in the pick up.
Currently the Isuzu V-Cross is available with a 2.5 litre and 1.9 litre diesel engine. The 2.5 litre is available with a manual whereas the other engine gets an automatic gearbox. Internationally, V-Cross gets a new 3.0 litre diesel unit also, we are not sure whether that would make it to India or not. With the 2020 version Isuzu is likely to drop the automatic gearbox to keep the costs in check.
Isuzu is yet to launch a BS6 version of the V-Cross in the market. They will be doing the same once the conditions in the country improve. With BS6 updates the price of the current version V-Cross is likely to go up and the upcoming 2020 version with all these changes is likely to be even more expensive than the current version.
