Isuzu’s limited-edition X-Runner is becoming something of an annual affair, with the D-Max pickup again getting the special treatment this week.
Available from March 17, the 2014 D-Max LS-U X-Runner 4x4 adds gunmetal-grey alloy wheels and steps, front and rear body-kit, a black sports bar and black tub liner.
In the cabin, there’s black-and-red two-tone seat trim, red contrast steering wheel stitch and a high-gloss piano black finish to the dash trim.
Two body colours are also on offer: pearlescent white and black mica, and each model gets contrasting stripes and decals.
As with all D-Max models, the X-Runner is also covered by a five-year/130,000km warranty.
Like others in the range, the X-Runner is available in manual and automatic. The D-MAX is otherwise unchanged, with power provided by a 3.0 litre turbodiesel producing 130kW and 380Nm.
Limited to 660 units, the X-Runner is priced from $46,490 drive-away (manual).
Australian D-Max 4x4 sales are up 7.2 percent in February, growing to 705 sales compared to 678 for February 2012. 4x2 sales are down however, with 92 sales in February compared to 123 for the same period last year.
The company also launched its MU-X SUV in Australia late last year, with 2014 sales coming to 360 units to the end of February.
