Bookings for the Isuzu D-Max V-Cross twin cab pick up truck are now open. Isuzu will launch this vehicle in the next few weeks. That said, the time to buy the D-Max V-Cross is NOW, and here’s why.
The initial batch of 100 D-Max V-Cross pick up trucks will be sold at an introductory price of 12.49 lakh rupees. This is brilliant pricing for a CKD assembled lifestyle pick up truck that’s way better than the likes of the Mahindra Scorpio Getaway and the Tata Xenon XT, the only other options in this segment. The V-Cross brings a lot more to the table that its Indian competitors.
Yes, the V-Cross is built on the same platform as the Chevrolet Trailblazer luxury SUV. Why, it even shares its interiors with the Trailblazer, and this includes the dashboard design. So, what you get in the V-Cross is a plush lifestyle pick up truck that’s a no-compromise vehicle as far as luxury goes. The Scorpio Getaway and the Tata Xenon XT are left far behind when it comes to interior quality. The V-Cross also shares its ladder frame chassis with the Trailblazer. So, what you’re getting for 12.49 lakh rupees is a pick up truck version of the Trailblazer. Killer value, no?
The D-Max V-Cross uses a 2.5 liter turbo diesel engine with 134 Bhp-320 Nm on tap. While these figures are higher than that of the Scorpio Getaway and slight lower (torque) than that of the Xenon XT, the diesel motor on the D-Max is known for terrific performance. In fact, the space cab pick up version of the D-Max hits 100 Kph from standstill in under 12 seconds. Top speed is an impressive 175 Kph. The V-Cross is likely to have similar performance, making it the fastest lifestyle pick up truck in the country.
Automatic climate control? Check. Twin airbags and ABS+EBD? Check. Touchscreen infotainment system? Check, tilt steering? check, and the list goes on. To sum it up, the V-Cross is the most feature-loaded lifestyle pick up trucks available in the Indian market currently.
