The spy pictures on CarDekho show the upcoming vehicle inside out but they have not mentioned the location of the vehicle. The upcoming Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is expected to get a range of updates visually and will even offer a brand-new engine that will meet the upcoming emission norms.

The camouflaged Isuzu D-Max V-Cross can be seen under heavy camouflage but the updates on the vehicle are quite similar to the new MU-X facelift that was launched in the Indian market last year.  The upcoming car will get projector headlamps, revised front bumper, a new grille, revised rear bumper and updated tail lamps.

On the inside, the new 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross will remain similar to the current version on sale. Isuzu will throw in a few updates to make the cabin look fresh. It will get a brown-black cabin finish replacing the beige-brown set-up in the current model.

Other changes on the dashboard of the upcoming Isuzu D-Max V-Cross are new piano black inserts that can be seen on the dashboard, central console and doors. The chrome inserts that can be seen on the current version of the pick-up truck have been replaced to add a sportier touch.

The biggest change will come in the form of engine. Isuzu will offer the new 1.9-litre diesel engine with the upcoming V-Cross. The engine is Euro VI compliant and the upcoming BS VI standards. The engine produces a maximum power of 164 PS and peak torque of 360 Nm.

For the first time, Isuzu will also offer a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Currently, the vehicle gets powered by a 2.5-litre diesel engine that churns out a maximum power of 134 PS and peak torque of 320 Nm. It is available with a 5-speed manual transmission only.

The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross gets a 4X4 system with a low-ratio transfer case. The low-ratio transfer case multiplies the torque output that allows the vehicle to reach challenging places easily. The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross is a global vehicle and is very popular in the Indian market too.

The version seen in the pictures will be known as the ‘Prestige’ and is likely to be the top-trim of the model in the Indian market. As for the standard features, Isuzu will offer dual airbags, ABS+EBD, ISOFIX child seat hooks, rear parking sensors, speed alerts. The higher level trims will also get extra airbags, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and more.
