Isuzu’s hard-working D-Max 1.9-litre Single Cab made light work of this year’s Borneo Safari, conquering the event with ease and winning the coveted title of Vehicle of The Year 2023.

The accolade recognizes the immense capability of the workhorse model that offers an immense payload of nearly one tonne on its 2,345mm loading bed. Long established as Isuzu’s most practical model, the Isuzu D-Max 1.9-litre Single Cab captivated this year’s Borneo Safari contingent with its versatility and ease at which it traversed the event’s rugged trails.

Key to its capabilities has been the impressive performance of the 1.9-litre Blue Power engine.
