Isuzu Teases 2024 V-Cross Pick Up Truck Ahead Of Launch

Isuzu V-Cross facelift

Isuzu is one of the manufacturers that popularized the lifestyle pickup segment in India. Before Isuzu, many manufacturers tried their luck; however, they never succeeded. The Isuzu V-Cross is probably the first pickup truck that grabbed buyers’ attention in our market. For years, the V-Cross was the only lifestyle pickup on sale. However, things have changed now, and the truck has a rival. With the rise in competition, Isuzu has decided to introduce a facelift for this popular pickup. The manufacturer has now released a teaser image of the pickup.

The images that have surfaced online give us a glimpse of the front and the cabin of the pickup truck. While Isuzu has been offering the V-Cross in India for quite some time, it is not the same version as the international variant. It is, in fact, one generation behind the international version. Coming to the teaser images, the Isuzu V-Cross facelift’s front grille is what can be seen here.

It looks like the manufacturer will be making minor changes to the grille, headlamps, and bumper of the pickup to give it a fresh look. Just like the front, we can expect a revised bumper at the rear as well. The design of the alloy wheels also looks slightly different, and they are expected to be finished in dual-tone.

From the images available online, we feel that the pickup would also receive some updates in the cabin too. The 2024 version of the Isuzu V-Cross is going to be offered with a brown and black dual-tone theme for the cabin. The seats are going to be finished in this theme, and the dashboard and other plastic panels are likely to get a black shade.

The manufacturer will be updating the touchscreen infotainment system. The SUV will come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will support Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The SUV will also get electrically adjustable seats, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control, and so on.

The SUV will continue to be offered with safety features like six airbags, electronic stability control, a traction control system, hill descent control, and a rear camera with sensors. Isuzu V-Cross will be powered by the same engine options as the current version. The 1.9-liter turbocharged diesel engine will generate 161 Bhp and 360 Nm of peak torque. The SUV will be offered with both manual and automatic transmission options.

The Isuzu V-Cross pickup’s lower version will be offered in a 2WD configuration, while the 4×4 feature is likely to be offered with the higher version only. Isuzu also offers a dual-cab base version of the pickup in 2021.

The same is expected to be seen with this upcoming version too. Currently, the V-Cross rivals the Hilux only; however, with rumors of Ford returning to India, there are suggestions that Ford might introduce the Ranger pickup in India.

The chances of Ford launching the Ranger are highly unlikely as it is going to be an expensive truck. A Ford Ranger was recently spotted along with the upcoming Everest or Endeavour, as we know it, on a flatbed in Chennai. The updated version of Isuzu V-Cross is expected to be launched in the market soon.
