Isuzu D-Max payload

In this Isuzu D-Max long-term update, we’re going to be looking at the weights and loads. The Isuzu D-Max payload is one of the best of all the double cabs, at up to 1,126kg, but this differs depending on the trim level and transmission.

Isuzu D-Max kerbweight

Downsizing from the veteran 2.5-litre engine to the newly-developed 1.9DDi in 2017, the Isuzu D-Max managed to shed around 40kg in weight. This reduces the kerbweight to 1,718kg for the single cab Utility to 1,944kg for the double cab Blade.

This compares to 2,189kg for the Ford Ranger Wildtrak, 2,150kg for the Toyota Hilux Invincible and 1,998kg for the Nissan Navara Tekna.

By keeping similar gross vehicle weights (GVWs), that 40kg weight saving is transferred directly to the payload – meaning that the Isuzu D-Max can now carry more than each of its competitors.

  3. Mitsubishi L200 4Life SC (1,135kg)

  2. Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian (1,120kg)
  3. Isuzu D-Max Blade manual (1,106kg)
