Isuzu KB (2016) Specs & Price

20 1800x1800

Isuzu has announced a facelifted version of its Isuzu KB bakkie and here are some details about this model.

The facelifted version of the Isuzu KB bakkie has gone on sale and while we attended its launch in Namibia (look out for a First Drive report of the newcomer soon), here are some key facts and details about this new vehicle. 

What's new?

  • New front fascia design including changes to bonnet, radiator grille and fog lamps
  • Redesigned headlamps with projector and integrated LED day time running lights on LX models
  • Updated tailgate styling on extended and double cab models.
  • Reverse-view camera integrated to tailgate handle on LX double cab models
  • 4x4 decal on load box
  • LX models get new-look 18-inch alloy wheels
  • 16-inch styled wheel features on the rest of the range
  • Instrument cluster design with improved functionality and shift indicator for manual models.
  • Rear park assist camera is now integrated into the rear tailgate handle on all LX double-cab derivatives.

“The new KB looks a lot sleeker and streamlined with a new instrumentation cluster design, improved sound system while maintaining all the key Isuzu characteristics we have come to love. In addition to the new look, 3.0 4x4 LX Double Cab customers will benefit from additional value as these models now come standard with a towbar, sportsbar, roofrails and power adjustable leather seats,” says Brian Olson, vice President Vehicle Sales, Service, and Marketing General Motors Sub-Saharan Africa.

In terms of engines, the trusty 2.5-litre and 3.0-litre diesel engines continue to be offered. The top-of-the-range 3.0 pushes out 130 kW and 380 Nm, while consuming 7.9 L/100 km for 4x4 double cab and extended cab models, dropping to 7.7 L/100 km for the 4x2 versions. The single cab 4x2 also returns a figure of 7.7L/100 km, with the 4x4 single cab version consuming 8 L/100 km. The second engine is the 2.5-litre which has  100 kW and 320 Nm. Both workhorse 250 modes come with the Direct Injection 4 Cylinder 2.5 Diesel engine which produces 58 kW and 170 Nm and fuel consumption is rated at 7.9 L/100 km.

Another important change is a refined suspension which helps deliver a smoother ride. This change comes from over 100 000 km of testing completed by local engineers. Hi-Rider 4X2 models receive new front and rear dampers while 4X4 models received revised rear dampers only.
