There’s still life left in the KB!

The Isuzu X-Rider was in­tro­duced a year ago as a lim­ited run of just over 700 units, but GMSA has de­cided to make it a per­ma­nent fix­ture in their line-up. The KB250’s 2.5-litre com­mon-rail tur­bod­iesel de­vel­ops 100 kW and 320 Nm, com­par­ing well to that of the Hilux 2.4 GD-6 and Ranger 2.2 TDCi. The most ob­vi­ous dif­fer­ences are di­a­mond-cut 18-inch al­loys, a black bumper guard with in­te­grated fog lamps, tubu­lar side steps/sports bar combo in black with X-Rider de­cals, as well as the blacked out B-pil­lars. The tyres are low-pro­file 255/60 Grab­ber ATs. The in­te­rior fea­tures in­clude full leather up­hol­stery, a leather steer­ing wheel, a leather gear-lever boot, pi­ano black door trim, as well as pi­ano black trim on air vents, ra­dio and front con­sole. This is com­ple­mented by re­mote key­less en­try, satel­lite con­trols on the steer­ing wheel, air con­di­tion­ing, and pro­jec­tor head­lights with day­time run­ning lights. The KB 250 X-Rider 4x2 Dou­ble Cab re­tails for R388 400. All Isuzu KB mod­els are sold with a 5-year/120 000km war­ranty and road­side as­sis­tance pro­gramme, a 5-year/un­lim­ited mileage cor­ro­sion war­ranty and a 5-year/90 000km ser­vice plan. Ser­vice in­ter­vals are 15 000km or 12 months.
