Cosmetic update for Isuzus

Citizen Reporter

The South African-engineered and built Isuzu bakkie has received subtle cosmetic updates.

According to Brian Olson, vice-president vehicle sales services and marketing (VSSM) at General Motors SA (GMSA), product enhancements have been made in response to meet the needs of their customers in sub-Saharan Africa.

“We constantly strive to improve our products and, with the added advantage of the sixth-generation Isuzu pick-up being developed, engineered and built in South Africa for the sub-Saharan Africa market, we are able to introduce updates with quick turnaround times for maximum effect.

“The subtle new tweaks to the Isuzu pick-up are all geared at enhancing visual appeal and creating a better driving experience.”

Available over the coming months, the updates include a new overhead storage compartment, including a sunglasses holder on LX extended cab and double cab models, and on LE and LX models new anthracite grey upholstery moves the interior ambience towards being more upmarket.

LE models now feature a more striking anthracite grey radiator grille and a black rear bumper as well. The LX double cab now features a chrome lockable tailgate handle and all models now feature a centre-high-mounted stop lamp.

“The changes are now reflected on a streamlined range of 18 Isuzu pick-up derivatives, all powered by our renowned diesel engines,” concludes Olson.

All Isuzu bakkies are sold with a fully comprehensive three-year/100000km warranty and a three-year/unlimited mileage anticorrosion warranty.
