The Isuzu D-Max V-Cross despite being a pick-up truck has garnered commendable fan base in a short time in India. And it is now all set for a mid-life update for Indian Roads. The facelift has already been introduced in international markets but India Launch has been long due. However, spied test mule shots indicate that the wait will be over sooner than later. Apart from the cosmetic updates, speculations are high that the next-gen 2019 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross will carry a new engine too.
The 2019 V-Cross gets a refurbished front with all-new grille and bumper. The rear gets inspired by its range-topping sibling and will boast of a reworked tailgate and LED taillamps. Apart from those the new edition also rests on bigger 18-inch wheels.

While LED daytime running lights (DRLs), LED taillamps, Traction Control System (TCS), cruise control, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and a 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat are already part of the feature list in the retiring model. A welcome new addition is a keyless entry with push-button start/stop and updated infotainment system. The cabin gets new upholstery with instrument updates.
Under the hood, the 2019 D-max V-Cross will in all likelihood powered by a downsized BSVI compliant 1.9-litre diesel engine churning 150PS/350 Nm coupled to a 6-speed manual/automatic transmission. The engine that powers the current product line is 2.5-litre in capacity and non-compliant to BSVI emission norm. Also, transmission duties are limited by a 5-speed manual transmission. We expect a slight increase in the price tag of the new variants from the current range of Rs 14.82 lakh - 16.31 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
