Complementing the two new D-TEQ diesel engines is the new 3.6 litre V6 petrol engine with all aluminium construction for reduced weight. Features of this engine include advanced cylinder head design with twin overhead camshafts on each bank of cylinders and four-valves per cylinder. Throttle control is electronic and combined with multi-point electronic fuel injection for excellent response and optimised fuel efficiency. Adaptive spark control with coil-on-plug ignition further improves engine efficiency.
This engine produces 157 kW @ 5300 r/min with maximum torque of 313 Nm @ 3200 r/min. The compression ratio is 10.2:1.
The Isuzu 2.0 litre and 2.4 litre petrol engines with multi-point fuel injection remain unchanged.
A number of styling and specification changes have also been made across the Isuzu KB range at this time. These include new front bumper styling across the range; a new 'lattice' type radiator grille; new front-end treatment with revised hood, fender and headlight styling.
