The new Isuzu KB is determined to build on its 40-year heritage in South Africa with a new look, improved capability and off-road prowess. Take a browse through our gallery!

Isuzu launched its sixth generation KB in South Africa this year, it's body 26cm longer, six cm wider and six cm taller than the model it replaced.

Now, June 2013, Isuzu adds five new derivatives to its KB range. According to Isuzu: "The new models focus on increasing the value proposition for business owners and enhancing its existing models."


The automaker has added a low-pressure turbo to its KB 250 base single-cab and Fleetside single-cab models. The 2.5 turbodiesel, borrowed from the previous generation KB, produces 58kW at 3800rpm and 170Nm at 1800rpm. Fuel consumption is 7.8 litres/100km.

Isuzu hopes to add more value to its range with three new Double Cab LX models sporting cloth seats. According to Isuzu, the models “reflect a saving of R9500 over their leather covered siblings”.
