Chief, if you're asking about the current models, and can't wait any longer for the others to come, the 2011 Mitsubishi Strada is the best buy at present amongst your choices. It comes with a VGT and it pumps out 175 bhp (178 ps) and produces 350 Nm peak torque.

But, if you can wait more, and still choosing only between the DMax and the Strada
(of which both are 4-cylinder turbocharged diesels just like the Hilux, Navara, BT-50 and the current Ranger), then wait 'til August this year. Although things are still sketchy, the rumour mill amongst insiders has it that the 3-litre Isuzu DMax iTEQ VGS Turbo is finally coming (at a limited supply) in the Philippines. The looks is quite the same as our current Philippine-DMax but this one got a newer engine and a hood scoop  (since 2006 Isuzu already got the variable-geometry turbocharger or VGT in its DMax and this was introduced first in Europe in 2007)  ;)

This DMax happens to be the 2009 and 2010 Best UTE in Australia, and the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Best Pickup in Europe for 3 years now in a row, with the latter publicised only this February 11, 2011 ---- click the following links for more details on this DMax  :)

But if you want a newer one and wants to be entirely different for 2012, wait for the all-new 5-cylinder 3.2-litre Ford Ranger with VGT 8).... But that is if this truck will be issued here in Pinas for next year as well hehe....

Yes chief ganjaman, maranello is right, and it's sad, because it still uses the "almost 8-year old now" 4JJ1-TC CRDi-only non-VGS equipped engine....
....Can you even imagine the SUV-type 4x4 Alterra going for PhP1.74M with only "cosmetics" updates year-by-year?

However, if you ever end up with the current Philippine-version DMax, you can have it tuned at Speedlab Racing Tech in Quezon Avenue ---- the tech shop sells a diesel EFi-tuning chip called Unichip. Installation plus dyno-tuning, it cost around PhP30,000 all-cost-in. According to a lot of sources and to the people at Speedlab. You will gain around 25 hp more (rear wheel hp), and around plus 40 to 70 Nm of torque for a typical 3-litre CRDi-diesel pickup like the DMax.... You will also have an improved fuel-efficiency as many users have testitifed. I'm also looking to avail it for my DMax as the cheaper tuning chip alternative to the more expensive DPChip of Berrima Diesels in Mandaluyong. The DPChip is an Australian product and Berrima Diesels is also an Aussie-based company.

And of course, the same thing goes for the 3-litre Hilux D4-D, 3-litre Ranger TDCi and Mazda BT-50, and the 3.2-litre Strada Di-D. Look into Speedlab's website and see the notable gain from the 3-litre Hilux D4-D where it gained torque from 380 Nm to 450 Nm with this chip alone....

Goodluck on your choices!

Yes, if it's the "3.0 Ddi-iTEQ" DMax-siado then the Unichip is applicable....

Check Speedlab, Quezon Ave. and its Unichip here:
http://www.speedlab.com.ph/
http://www.speedlab.com.ph/unichip.php

Under the Unichip page, you may click on the 3-litre Toyota Hilux D4-D and see how much it gained from this tuning chip alone.
 
i take it chief ganjaman that your DMax LX is no longer in its 3-year warranty, else, it will be void.

Goodluck!


P.S.


If it's not much of a trouble chief, and since you have a DMax, can i please ask you to join the Inteco Dealerships Facebook site at ---- http://www.facebook.com/intecogroup

It's quite important by clicking "LIKE" in this page, because you will see here (and enable you to join) a post related to bringing-into the Philippines the better 3-litre 4JJ1-TCX "hi-power" engine for the DMax. This engine has been existing since 2006 but is not offered yet to the Philippine-market. This engine is also CRDi and it utilises a variable-geometry turbocharger. The DMax carrying this engine looks similar to our Philippine-DMax but it got a distinctively good-looking "hood-scoop". While our Philippine-DMax carries the emblem "3.0 Ddi-iTEQ" this "better" DMax carries the "3.0 iTEQ VGS TURBO" signature....

This is the poll proper and kindly just click "YES" so that we get the attention of Isuzu Phils. to finally offer this engine to us Filipinos....

Thank you very much.

Complete-overhaul for 2012…. The leaked photos below should be, amongst the Thais, the much talked-about plus 180 horsepower 2012 Isuzu RT-50


Simply unbelievably beautiful!!!!




This will also debut in Australia as the sales of the current 3.0-litre 4JJ1-TCX DMax VGS Turbo has steadily been on the rise since its Australian introduction in 2008....

C'mon Isuzu Phils. you don't have much any excuses now.... You hafta bring-in here the DMax VGS Turbo now, yes the 2006 model 3.0-litre 4JJ1-TCX. We pretty much have accepted the fact that we Pinoys are always behind what's being offered elsewhere around the globe.... C'mon IPC be a good boy this time!

Like the previous-generation models, the new D-Max and Colorado share the same bodywork and interior design, but will now offer different drivetrain technology.  The D-Max trucks will be available with an advanced safety package, with features including electronic stability control, traction control, ABS, brake assist and a number of airbags.

Which DMax that you're mentioning here boss Clark? ---- The old-and-unchanged Philippine-issue 3.0 Ddi-iTEQ, or the relatively better Aussie-issue DMax VGS Turbo, or the all-new 2012 RT-50?

Thanks.
