Recently, we came across a video where a 2021 Isuzu V-Cross is put through a super-tough torture test. Take a look at the video here.
There’s no denying the fact that lifestyle pickup trucks haven’t scored very well in the Indian automobile market as yet. The poor demand for this type of vehicle has become a big constraint that prevents manufacturers to enter this territory, except for the Isuzu. The Japanese carmaker has tasted a fair share of success with its D-Max V-Cross pickup truck in a short period of time in the Indian car market. Recently, we came across a video showing an India-bound Isuzu V-Cross performing in a torture test.
Uploaded on a Youtube channel named 4WD 24-7, the video shows how the new Isuzu V-Cross performed in some patch of rough driving conditions against its last-gen counterpart. The first challenge for these lifestyle pickup was the wheel articulation test with the traction control system. As can be seen in the video, the older version of the V-Cross is quite capable but not enough to outperform the new car. The new India-bound Isuzu V-Cross gets a better suspension that aids much in dealing with the trouble.
On the dirt road, the all-new V-Cross also feel more planted. Even in the mud, the new pickup makes its path seamlessly. The NVH levels along with the interior quality of the 2020 Isuzu V-Cross are also much better than the those of old one.
The 2021 Isuzu V-Cross pickup truck still offers enough space for 4 adults inside the cabin, together with a loading bed at the rear. The cabin of the new V-Cross has been updated to offer a more premium feel while the chassis has been reinforced as well. On the outside, the new Isuzu V-Cross gets a butch-looking silhouette with the inclusion of refreshed LED fog lamps and clear-lens LED taillights.
In India, the Isuzu V-Cross was sold with a 2.5-litre diesel engine under the bonnet. However, the new Isuzu V-Cross featured in the video gets a 3.0-litre diesel motor unit. While there’s no official statement on the launch of the new Isuzu V-Cross for India, we expect it to reach our shores sooner or later.
