The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross has captured a lot of attention in the market. The lifestyle pick-up truck is the best selling private pick-up, in India, and people have found crazy ways to modify it. Here is one modified V-Cross that gets four extra seats!
Isuzu D-Max V-Cross 9-seater
The pick-up truck has been modified for jungle safaris by XS Overland, a customisation house based in Gujarat. The V-Cross gets a new olive paint scheme in matte finish that gives it an attractive look and camouflages the vehicle in the trees while spotting animals. It also gets other changes like an off-road spec steel bumper painted in black and a built-in winch that will help the vehicle to recover if it gets stuck and help fellow vehicles too.
The modification job also adds a snorkel on the D-Max V-Cross that increases its water-wading capability. Above the bumper, a set of auxiliary lamps have been placed that will throw extra light on the trails. Even the roof gets a set of four auxiliary lamps that further light up the dark trails at night. There are fog lamps integrated to the bumper too. An iron cage has been installed over the fender of the vehicle to save it from hits from the trees or rocks. It also gets aftermarket off-road spec tyres that further increase its capabilities and makes it a better off-roader.
As it is a vehicle that will be used for jungle safari, the flatbed of the vehicle gets four extra seats that can be used by tourists to spot animals with ease. The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross can seat five passengers. The extra four seats take the total capacity to nine. At the rear, the vehicle gets off-road spec steel bumper and the spare wheel has been mounted on the flatbed gate.
The D-Max V-Cross is powered by a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates a maximum power of 134 Bhp and 320 Nm of peak torque. The engine gets a 5-speed transmission and a 4-wheel drive system with a low-ratio transfer case. It is not known if the engine has been re-tuned for extra power.
