Which one is the best, the Isuzu D-Max or the new Toyota Hilux | Pickup trucks | HighRPM

Indian automobile market has alot of segments and categories alike other markets although many segments or you can say categories are still away from Indian land but that's not a big deal but one category of 4 wheeler recently took pace, the family pickup truck category and this happen because of Toyota's new vehicle the Toyota Hilux before Hilux there was only one player in the game, the Isuzu D-Max.

Now, the situation is after added competition people are confuse between D-Max and Hilux. Therefore this post is all about these two badass (not Kia) vehicles or you can say brutal off-roading animals. 


Price 

Toyota Hilux 

The price of Hilux starts at 33.99 lakh and the cost of top model goes up to 36.80 lakh. It is available in three variants. 

Starting price- 33.99 lakh 

Top model- 36.80 lakh 


Isuzu D-Max 

Its price starts at 16.98 lakh and the model cost around 24.49 lakh. This one is available in four variants. 

Starting price- 19.68 lakh 

Top model- 25.55 lakh 


These are the ex-showroom prices, comparatively, the Isuzu has much lower rate than Hilux however the top model of D-Max cost you almost close to Hilux when it comes to on road price.


Engine, Power and Transmission

Toyota Hilux 

2755cc 4 inline cylinder turbocharged diesel engine. It comes with both manual & automatic transmission and its an AWD vehicle with BS6 emission compliant.

  • Power- 201bhp @ 3000rpm
  • Torque- 500Nm @1600rpm (automatic)
  • Torque- 420Nm @1600rpm (manual) 


Isuzu D-Max

1898cc 4inline cylinder DOHC Common Rail VGS Turbo inter cooled diesel engine this engine. Manual & automatic transmission both are available, AWD and BS6 emission compliant. 

  • Power- 165bhp @ 3600rpm 
  • Torque- 360Nm @ 2000rpm, 


Both the vehicles are powered by diesel engine, petrol option is not there but that's great, I believe, because these are trucks used for some heavy duty and some serious off-road stuff. 

D-Max has smaller heart than Hilux even it won't have 2.0L engine which is kinda suprising. The power and torque figures are also less, of course, but these figures are same for manual as well as automatic not like Toyota. 


Safety features and other 

Toyota Hilux

  • 7 airbags
  • ABS 
  • ESP
  • EBD
  • Brake assist 
  • Active traction control 
  • Hill hold control
  • Hill descent control 
  • Electronic differential lock 
  • Dual zone automatic climate control AC
  • Cruise control
  • Seat belt warning 
  • Child seat mount 
  • Child safety lock 
  • Speed sensing door lock 
  • Auto headlamps

  • Two driving modes
    • Eco
    • Power
  • Engine immobilizer 
  • Android auto connect

Isuzu D-Max

  • 6 airbags 
  • ABS
  • EBD
  • ESP 
  • Brake assist 
  • Traction control 
  • Hill descent control 
  • Engine immobilizer 
  • Seat belt warning

  • Android auto connect 
  • Apple car play 
  • 6 way electric seat adjust (driver only) 
  • Automatic head light leveler
  • PESS (Passive Entry and Start Stop System)
  • All time AWD 


These are the fatures of top models and Hilux is coming with plenty of features in front of Isuzu meanwhile Isuzu haven't managed to give that much features and the features Isuzu is offering is literally not justifying its price.

Being a pick-up truck you won't have differential lock system, all time 4×4, no hill hold control even it won't have center locking that's crazy man what Isuzu was thinking while building this vehicle, just about presence nothing else, don't say that it's not that expensive like Hilux, D-Max top end cost 32 lakh+ on road. 


Tyres, Brakes and suspension 

Toyota Hilux

Brakes- Front- Ventilated Disc 

               Rear- Drum 

Tyres- Front- 265/60 R18

             Rear- 265/60 R18 

Suspension- Front- Double Wishbone

                       Rear- Leaf spring


Isuzu D-Max

               Rear- Drum 

Tyres- Front- 255/60 R18

             Rear- 255/60 R18 

Suspension- Front- Independent Double Wishbone 

                       Rear- Leaf spring


In terms of cost cutting Isuzu and Toyota both, broke all the barriers, seriously, you people are giving drum brakes at rear on these EXPENSIVE vehicles. 


Lights

Toyota Hilux

  • Headlamps- LED 
  • Tail lights- LED 
  • Fog lamps- LED 
  • DRLs- LED 


Isuzu D-Max

  • Headlamps- LED 
  • Tail lights- LED 
  • Fog lamps- Halogen
  • DRLs- LED 


Dimensions and weight

Toyota Hilux

  • Length- 5.325m
  • Width- 1.855m
  • Height- 1.815m
  • Wheelbase- 3.085m 
  • loading capacity- 470Kg 


Isuzu D-Max 

  • Length- 5.290m
  • Width- 1.860m
  • Height- 1.840m 
  • Wheelbase- 3.090m
  • Loading capacity- 180Kg


Dimensions are pretty much same not that drastic difference but, yes, loading capacity of Hilux is much much higher than the D-Max.


Both the cars are tough and having great off road capabilities that insure to give you amazing offroading experience although I believe both the cars are over priced. Definately the looks and practicality kinda justify the price but in terms of features both the brand have done cost cutting like crazy especially Isuzu. 

Having all these drawbacks won't wash off its positive things like practicality, power and overwhelming road presence and great off road abilities.

Less traveled roads and silent routes have million of things to say, thousands of things to show, and hundreds of things to teach.

Does Aprilia RS 457 has that Aprilia thing? | Price, Features, Power, Engine | HighRPM

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and

Honda has launched the NX500 their new adventure tourer, the NX500 has everything necessary for mile-munching and adventure trips. The Honda NX500 is standing against many adventure tourers and among them, the biggest rival in my opinion is the new Royal Enfield Himalayan 450.  The new RE Himalayan 450 is loaded with features and power too, and the price of the new Himalayan 450 is very attractive as well.

Motorcycles are full of emotions, if you don't believe me then ask the same to an enthusiast, he or she will tell you what bikes actually are.

BMW has many babies for different people of different tastes and if you are seeking extreme comfort on 2 wheels then BMW K 1600 is that babe that will satisfy you in every possible way.
