Isuzu has announced the introduction of five new model derivatives to the KB range. The new models are said to be focused on increasing value-for-money for Isuzu KB owners.
New KB 250 models
Supplementing the common-rail engine Isuzu KB 250 D-TEQ Base and Fleetside models, the low pressure turbo engine KB 250 Base Single Cab and KB 250 Fleetside Single Cab additions are aimed at volume or fleet buyers. The familiar 2.5-litre low pressure turbo diesel engine has been carried forward from the previous generation.
The engine produces 58 kW of power at 3 800 rpm and 170 Nm at just 1 800 rpm while claiming returns of 7.8-litres per 100 km on the combined cycle. The Isuzu KB 250 Single Cab models retail for R197 200 (Base) and R214 100 (Fleetside) including VAT and come with a 5-year/ 90 000 km service plan and a 5-year/ 120 000 km warranty.
Cloth upholstery for range-topping LX models
The KB range will now have keener pricing as the range-topping LX models are now available with the option of cloth-covered seats (instead of the brown leather seats we’ve seen on the new generation). The three new Double Cab LX models reflect a R9 500 price reduction over their leather covered equivalents. The new models will continue to feature standard passenger side airbags, which are integrated into each front seat.
The Isuzu KB LX models with cloth upholstery are priced as follows:
R400 900 KB 300 D-TEQ Double Cab LX
R413 900 KB 300 D-TEQ Double Cab LX Automatic
R454 900 KB 300 D-TEQ Double Cab LX 4×4
All prices include VAT. All Isuzu KB models come standard with a five-year/120 000 km warranty and a five-year/90 000 km service plan.
