The all-new Gen 7 Isuzu D-MAX incorporates the ultimate in modern vehicle safety systems. Installed, standard, micro-chip technology reduces reaction time on the road and automatically upgrades driving skill. At 120kph a vehicle is covering 33m every second where Isuzu D-MAX technology allows for rapid decisions and the appropriate driving ability.

Here are the extraordinary safety credentials that come standard with every Isuzu D-MAX:

  • ABS – Anti-lock Braking System – wheels will not lockup under emergency braking, but most importantly, D-Max retains its steer-ability to avoid a crash. 
  • TC & HSA – Incorporated with ABS are Traction Control (avoiding acceleration skidding) and Hill Start Assist that prevents rolling back when starting off on a steep incline
  • EBD – Electronic Brakeforce Distribution – is a technology always coupled with ABS that automatically varies the amount of force applied to each of a vehicle's brakes, based on road conditions, speed, loading, and traction
  • BAS – Brake Assist – a term for an automobile braking technology that increases braking pressure in an emergency.
  • ESC – Electronic Stability Control - this improves D-MAX stability by detecting and reducing loss of traction. It does not improve a vehicle's cornering performance; instead, it assists reduce the chance of a driver losing vehicle control.
  • HDC – Hill Descent Control is active for extreme descent gradients to enable a driver to maintain the downhill run without running away or sideslipping.
  • TSC – Trailer Sway Control is a stability technology when towing

The V-CROSS, Isuzu’s range-topping D-MAX raises the benchmark even further.

  • IDAS – An Intelligent Driver Assist system that incorporates a suite of active and passive safety features – 
  • FCW – Forward Collision Warning
  • AEB – Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • ACC – Adaptive Cruise Control
  • LDWS – Lane Departure System
  • LDP – Lane Departure Prevention
  • LKAS – Lane Keep Assist System
  • BSM – Blind Spot Monitor
  • MCB – Multi Collision Brake
  • Other useful systems – Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Parking Aid (front & rear)
