The current body like for this DMax VGS 4JJ1-TCX is simple and not slopey. From the inside looking outside the road forward, both frontal and peripheral visions are perfect all-together. Simply plugged in the new 180 ps Isuzu RT-50 engine onto this baby and it's the winner package hehe ---- but this is just me....
Plus the front-side panels of the body holding the windshield looks so slopey forward where peripheral vision suffers, again which i really really hate. i have never come to terms with this thing while even on a daily-basis i have to drive a Triton in my workplace amongst all other utility pickups like the DMax and the Hilux, my in-laws Monterosport, and now my wife's newly-purchased Innova D4-D. Particularly at night time, i hate driving all these said vehicles, and yes, also the Innova! ....By the way, she was issued the Innova (service vehicle replacing the 2003 Crosswind) before i got my recent fieldbreak.
This is the reason why i have always liked the DMax/ Alterra (the 4JH1-TC and the 4JJ1-TC to the 4JJ1-TCX bodies), and the Hilux/ Fortuner body, because i have a better forward, peripheral-and-frontal visions all-together.... i can go much faster driving any of them, squeezing through traffics, and at night times, no problems at all.... Least to say, i have more confidence driving them.
I agree, sa mga cornering and blind curves sa strada, ranger at Pajero medyo nagle-lean pa ako to the left to get more view of the road. Sa night much comfortable ako since I can see well and I prefer seeing the lights of oncoming vehicles. Malas na lang kung one-eyed-jack na mokong kasalubong or worst, a blind one! :twak:
Replace the current DMax/ Alterra now ASAP by even just (please Isuzu Phils.) bringing here the 4JJ1-TCX engine with the rolling-chassis and nice looking body design of the DMax VGS Turbo like this Thai-version X-series Super Platinum variant....
Make us Pinoys feel winners naman kahit paminsan-minsan lang ....by giving us a taste in a momentous-fashion why Aussies Bruce Garland and Harry Suzuki took the 1st-place amongst all diesel utility pickups during the 2009 Paris-Dakar Rally
Make us feel Isuzu Motors that we Pinoys are not total junkyards of old Isuzu's.... Maraming salamat po!!!!
