Toyota Hilux vs Isuzu D-Max

Maybe we make mistakes when we called this 2 vehicles “heavyweights” compared to what is in America meant by that, but in our circumstances pick up truck class always means – heavy machines capable of a lot. More specifically, they are called even light trucks. Lexicon we will left to linguists, and we will deal with mechanics.


Isuzu as its main market is considered the world, and Europe at least. Toyota was not so long ago, “my eye” to Europe, but also to continue to deal with the whole world more than the Old Continent. In such a constellation of things, Isuzu D-Max and Toyota Hilux are novelties. However, only relatively. In the large SUV segment, Toyota reigns for a long time. Every 4 years appears redesigned Toyota Sequoia. In mid-October 2016, will appear Toyota Sequoia for the 2017 year.

Hilux vs D-Max: Generational differences

Both vehicles have been on the market for a long time. Hilux boasts its already sixth edition. Moreover, the Hilux is the second best-selling Toyota, behind the Corolla. Neither D-Max has not much worse pedigree. Who would say that? On the streets of Europe towns both are exotic, to which hardly anyone pays attention.


However, this class is with us still far from the eye and the heart, although, frankly, a lot is the question of to whom to gain popularity. Our hobby athletes who would wear their snowmobile or jet skis, to solve trailers. Construction, refurbishment or electrical company, which transported the tools and masters at the same expense, still resort to various improvisations, not understanding it’s time to invest in stock. The third category of potential, which in America is called a farmer, looks at practical pick up like on a perfectly space shuttle, especially financially.


After driving for more than 600 miles we decide that the winner, but only slightly is Hilux. It seems that in this tight win part due to the fact that the much younger generation, earning him the benefit in terms of more efficient and quieter engines. Also, Toyota Hilux is our choice, because main purpose of vehicle is the transport of goods, tools or equipment and workers. If you need pick up for personal purposes, long trips and as a vehicle adapted hobby, comfortable Isuzu D-Max will has a slight advantage.

My search for a new car

Crossover vehicles have become very popular over the last 20 years. Sales of these vehicles has grown by over 15% annually. In the last few years has further sales growth slowed in Europe and the USA, but has increased in China and India. In these Asian countries there has been a rise in the number of middle class people that are willing to pay over $ 30,000 for the SUV. Some of the advantages of these vehicles are quite familiar. For example, you can drive off-road as well as on the road. Also, these vehicles have large luggage space that are very useful for the people living in rural areas. Also, during the time the SUV became a status symbol. All these factors have contributed to SUVs to become the most widespread type of vehicle in the USA. These vehicles have a slightly lower fuel consumption then  the pickup trucks and for that fact they are more economical to use.

For this reason I decided to investigate the situation on the market and determine which large vehicles are currently the best on the market. I reviewed several dozen sites, and some have to boast. In any case, I made a small list of the most interesting large SUVs.

The list of best big vehicles

When choosing the best vehicle I was guided by a few basic principles. The first are subjective – whether I like vehicle. Others are objective and concern the price, power and volume of space. For each vehicle I mainly cited the positive side. Why not negative? Simply, everybody on the internet can find enough bad experiences, but I did not want to mention some more. So, I put together a list that will look like this:

1. The GMC Acadia is a relatively newer vehicle. It is characterized by a great engine and a nice interior. In the three rows are deployed a total of 8 seats. The seats in the first row are extremely comfortable and can be adjusted electronically. If you want, you can choose to have a heater. It was made on the same platform as the Buick Enclave, but with the many parameters, Acadia is much better choice. First of all, one should boast a large space when folded down seats, but also a large space for passengers in the third row of seats.

2. Mazda CX9. This SUV unlike the previous vehicle has 7 seats. This SUV has a great power of engine, but also a very high fuel consumption. Power consumption is 17 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. This is the main objection to this vehicle. Since the equipment is satellite radio, bluetooth technology, touch screen and many other things. This vehicle was choosen as the best full-size SUV in 2013. The silhouette of this vehicle gives firmness and strength, but many decide to buy this car beacause it has great design.

3. Toyota Sequoia SUV, which is probably the longest products on this list. In this list, it represent vehicles with 8 seats. It is characterized by excellent design, powerful engine and a very bad MPG. According to the latest data, EPA for this vehicle is 13/17 mpg.  From the equipment inside the car, I need to emphasize rear view camera, blind spot monitoring, USB connectivity, Bluetooth, an excellent stereo system. This vehicle is offered in three trim levels namely: SR5, Limited and Platinum. The difference between these trim levels is mainly in the equipment they possess. The headlights have been redesigned and now feature LED technology. Sequoia will probably be disconinued in 2018 year, but I will see is that true.


As you can see, the listed vehicles have excellent characteristics. Which will you choose, mostly depends on your needs. After all, you can continue with the research because there are thousands of websites about this subject.  Just do not buy a vehicle without checking that will not suit to your needs. I hope that this article give you  at least a little help in the selection of new big car.
