KEY Pi­eter­mar­itzburg launched the up­graded Isuzu to their Plat­inum Fleet cus­tomers re­cently.

On site was the new Isuzu 3.0 LX dou­ble cab 4x4 auto which now fea­tures new ad­di­tions that in­clude: • Au­to­matic gear­box; • PESS/Pas­sive en­try start sys­tem; • DRL/Day­time run­ning lights; and • Re­verse cam­era cou­pled to a ra­dio tuner with RDS, front load­ing DVD player, MP3 func­tion­al­ity, Blue­tooth Au­dio Stream­ing and Satel­lite Nav­i­ga­tion.

Also tested on the 4x4 track by qual­i­fied in­struc­tors from the Isuzu acad­emy was the brand new 2.5 HO mo­tor in dou­ble cab op­tion which pumps out 100 Kw at 3 600 rpm and 320 Nm at 2 800 rpm.

This model is now avail­able in a Hi Rider op­tion, which is an af­ford­able op­tion to the nor­mal LE spec. Both the above ve­hi­cles come with ABS / EBD / BAS and ESC as stan­dard fea­tures. • Wheels will tomorrow take two Isuzu dou­ble cabs into Le­sotho, en­ter­ing at Ra­mat­sil­iso Gate — SA’s high­est border post — and ex­it­ing at the no­to­ri­ous On­geluks Nek, af­ter a week­end in­volv­ing one of the most scenic moun­tain drives in southern Africa. — WR,
