Isuzu launches the limited edition D-Max Beast

Isuzu is ready to unleash a new beast in town.


Limited to only 360 units, the Isuzu D-Max Beast is the best the D-Max has ever looked. If the Diablo looked devilish than the Beast looks just plain mean! Isuzu is calling the Beast the “toughest, meanest looking and most capable vehicle on the road today” and it sure does look the part.

On the inside, it’s all standard D-Max fair but with the addition of stainless steel kick panels that illuminates with LED Isuzu logos. The seats are wrapped in premium Italian leather and finished in a two-toned shade. The leather also has the exclusive BEAST logo stitched onto to remind you that this is a limited edition D-Max you are sitting in. The BEAST logo is also stitched across the carpet mats as well.

Upgrades inside here include a Kenwood multimedia player with a 6.2-inch touch screen that also broadcasts the footage from the reverse camera. The Beast is also equipped with a Bongiovi digital power amplifier to give that extra punch to all your favourite music that pound from the six-speaker surround sound system.

Outside, there is no mistaking the Beast from the other D-Max trucks. Engineers of the Beast have worked to create a bolder and more distinct look resulting with a strong and aggressive outlook, hence the nickname Beast.

Available in two base colours of Magnum White Solid or Titan Silver Metallic, the Beast’s fascia is decorated with a dark grey grille and bonnet garnish, the bumper guard is now matte black and has a silver accent plate running through it. The rugged character is rounded off with black headlight garnish.

On the sides, the wheel arches are framed with matte black surrounds to highlight the exclusively designed 17-inch matte black alloy rims shod with 255/65 R17 tyres. To give the truck more contrast, the door handles, roof rails, door mirrors and side steps are all finished in black, and all these are matched with the body decal that will help remind other road users that this D-Max is a Beast.

The Beast is customised for off-roading adventures. The truck comes with Claw Bar with a lockable lid, a stylish aero spoiler and a bed liner as standard, while they are not distinct for the Beast, Isuzu has done some improving to maximise their usefulness.

Two engines are available, a 2.5-litre or 3.0-litre engines that are mated with a 4x4 automatic transmission. The Isuzu D-Max Beast will set you back RM116,040.20 on the road without insurance for the 2.5-litre variant and RM123,835.40 on the road without insurance for the 3.0-litre variant.
