The facelifted 2022 Isuzu V-Cross pickup truck has finally made its international debut. The Isuzu V-Cross is one of the two vehicles that dominate the lifestyle pickup truck market in India. If its new uplifted version makes it to the Indian shores, it will be seen locking horns with its primary rival, the Toyota Hilux.
The design of the 2022 Isuzu V-Cross international model is slightly different from its current-gen Indian counterpart. It features sharper LED headlamps with integrated LED DRLs. On its nose lies a massive front grille with two chrome bars. The top chrome bar has the Isuzu brand engraving on it. The fog lamps rest in a uniquely styled housing while the silver skid plate extending from the bottom completes its bold front look, making the silhouette of the truck appear muscular overall.
From the rear, the 2022 V-Cross gets a deep cargo compartment to carry loads of luggage. The sides and rear of the vehicle have steps to ascend into it. The vehicle comes riding on black alloy wheels with prominent arches.
Speaking of the 2022 Isuzu V-Cross interiors, it is expected to feature an upgraded 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It will finally have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. Some more features that the pickup truck is expected to come with include keyless entry, automatic climate control, cruise control, push-button start/stop, and more. In terms of safety, the vehicle comes equipped with six airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, hill descent control, reverse parking sensors, an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, and more.
The 2022 Isuzu D-Max V-Cross gets power from a BS6 compliant 1.9L common rail diesel engine, with a variable Turbo Geometry Turbocharger. It delivers 161 hp of peak power along with 360 Nm of torque. This comes coupled with a 6-speed manual and automatic transmission option. It features a 4×4 system with a High Torque Mode and High Ride Suspension for enhanced off-road capabilities. The commercial cab version of the 2022 Isuzu V-Cross comes with a 2.5L diesel engine that delivers an output of 78hp and 178 Nm of torque.
The Isuzu V-Cross price in India starts from Rs 13 lakhs and goes up to Rs 27 lakhs (ex-showroom).
