    nang dahilsa ayaw mag-upgrade ng model ang Isuzu dito sa Pilipinas, ang 2003 Crosswind at 2008 DMax 3.0 Ddi-iTEQ modelo pa rin hanggang ngaun, kahit ilang taon na nakakalipas ---- ONLY IN THE PHELIPPENS!

  • BOOGIECAT Nov 12 2011 @ 11:10pm
    The Crosswind will be replaced in 2013 and it will be based on Chevrolet's new AUV platform.
  • meljeffrey_delacruz Nov 12 2011 @ 11:33pm
    isuzu phil thinks filipinos don't deserve their latest products. Kawawa naman tayong mga Filipino
  • RS500 Nov 12 2011 @ 11:36pm
    baka naman kasi wala silang mga designer talaga sa Isuzu. hayaan niyo na, nakikinabang naman dito ung mga pinoy na ginagawang taxi at shuttle service cars nila.
    • BOOGIECAT Nov 12 2011 @ 11:55pm
      Bakit nagkaroon ng bagong D-Max sa Thailand..LOL!!!

      The new Alterra will based on Chevrolet Trailblazer.

  • rockyroad Nov 12 2011 @ 11:45pm

  • Feeter Silverster Nov 12 2011 @ 11:57pm
    Hangga't hindi CRDI ang mga jeepney, di rin mag CRDI ang crosswind.
    • dtkiko Nov 13 2011 @ 12:49am

  • dtkiko Nov 13 2011 @ 12:48am
    Mga Gentlemen:

    Paki-translate naman sirs mga sinabi natin dito sa Nippon.... Para maintindihan naman ng mga Japanese nationals sa Isuzu Phils. management.

    After translating, huwag muna tayong mag-"harigato pakli buto" ah haha!!!!
  • Kim John Nov 13 2011 @ 01:18am
    mabuti pa ang mitsubishi.
  • Restomodz Nov 13 2011 @ 01:58am
    In Japanese:
    は、タイの洪水の、いすゞ横風バリアントは、前方、最大10年へのアップグレードを持っていないでしょう。
    In English:
    Because of the flood in Thailand, Isuzu Crosswind variant will not have an upgrade up to 10years forward.

    Huehuehuehue.... ROFL... :)
  • GBfive Nov 13 2011 @ 06:11am
    ok lang na old model pero sana mas mababa ang price or sana may mga bagong colors... i think malakas ang loob ng isuzu na i-retain ang mga old model kasi wala pa naman padating na all-new models ang kanilang competitors.
  • vinci24 Nov 13 2011 @ 07:39am
    di ba sila din may hawak ng honda phils. see what's happening sa honda halos pareho lang sa isuzu. nasa management ang problem.
  • DMZ Nov 13 2011 @ 10:18am
    @dtkiko----all isuzu fans, bow your heads & accept the reality that Isuzu has no potential or rather resources to rival / catch-up with the latest trend of oil-burner engines. With Hyundai alone, Isuzu has no match with its downsized 2.2 four-banger CRDi.

    Much more with the trucks---Mitsubishi Fuso's Medium-Duty Canter Gets New Duonic Dual-Clutch Transmission, it is the first application of a dual-clutch transmission in a medium-duty truck, the first of its kind in a work truck.

    Isuzu fans, let's move on, forget the mentality of Isuzu best diesel, now no more--------







  • wenski Nov 13 2011 @ 07:37pm
    anong ni-revised dyan?
  • gundam Nov 13 2011 @ 07:55pm
    Pwede natin i blame yan sa gobyerno dahil ang programa nila ay pabagalin ang takbo ng sasakyan sa ilang daan sa manila [max. 60kph].

    Enough na kasi ang power ng crosswind para dyan.

    Pero kung ma increase natin ang speed sa expressway lets say maximum of 140kph. Tangalin tricycle at kuliglig sa highway para mas mabilis na din ang flow ng traffic.

    Dyan sigurado magiging obsolete na yang crosswind at papalitan na yan.
  • GTi Nov 13 2011 @ 08:59pm
    ALL NEW MODELS PLEASE. >_
  • GotToRead Nov 13 2011 @ 10:49pm
    Ang angas pa naman ng MU-7 sa thailand tpos dito sa pinas eh cosmetics lang inaayos tsk!
  • mts Nov 14 2011 @ 12:22pm
    I agree with GBfive. Old model should be priced lower compared to new ones. From my perspective, they should lower their prices 100k to 300k for Crosswind variants - base to top of the line respectively.
  • boylambot Nov 14 2011 @ 01:37pm
    yuck
  • dmaxred18 Nov 14 2011 @ 02:16pm
    good job isuzu!
  • janjalaniv Nov 14 2011 @ 06:48pm
    pls dont buy crosswind. that will remind Isuzu to change it. At paano naman nanalo ng Best AUV award? dahil sa popularity kahit walang quality?
    • RS500 Nov 15 2011 @ 12:18am
      may quality naman ang crosswind. tingnan mo ang daming shuttle/fx na crosswind ang gamit. ok tlaga diesel ng isuzu. syempre in the 1st place diesel trucks ginagawa nila kaya alam nila tamang timpla ng diesel engine para sa pinas. Uy pero di ko sinasabi na walang kwenta diesel ng hyundai at mitsu. mas experienced lang talaga isuzu. Un nga lang ung design diba? nakakasawa na haha..
      • dmaxred18 Oct 01 2012 @ 10:09pm
        yes tama ka dyan RS500!! okay tlaga isuzu pag dating sa diesel engines!
    • dmaxred18 Oct 01 2012 @ 10:08pm
      me quality yan,. Langya ka naman!!,. ano akala mo sa isuzu eh' kia o hyundai na walang quality?'',.. quality mo mukha mo p*t* ka!!
  • windel Nov 15 2011 @ 08:00am
    revised or new engine please. . . mas mabuti pa ang bagong engine tapos lumang body kaysa laging bago yung body tapos old engine. hahaha.
  • dtkiko Nov 15 2011 @ 11:14am
    Mga sirs, yari man lang wala na talagang chance ang Pinas na ma-issuehan pa ng mga bagong Isuzu models, PAGANDAHAN NALANG TAYO NG LANGIS.... ahihi....

    Who wants a hugely-discounted Mobil 1 Super-Syn 0W-40 fully synthetic oil for his diesel CRDi DMax and Alterra (only 60 hours 48 minutes remaining to avail of this promo as of this posting)
    http://www.saveonpinoy.com/deal/Only-P540-For-A-1-Liter-Mobil-1-0W-40-Fully-Synthetic-Motor-Oil-For-Gas-And-Diesel-Engines---Makati-Valued-At-P900.html

    Make no mistake about it gentlemen that the 0W-40 oil grade is just an indicative property; real viscosity or weight of oil lies in its kinematic viscosity given in centiStokes (cSt) across different temperatures, as provided in the attached product info:
    http://www.mobil.com/USA-English/Lubes/PDS/GLXXENPVLMOMobil_1_0W-40.aspx

    You may take note of the following:

    1. That at 100-deg Celsius it still has a viscosity or thickness of 13.5 cSt, almost just similar to the Motul Specific CRDi 5W-40 fully-synthetic viscosity of 13.9 cSt at that same temperature;

    2. The Mobil 1 0W-40 also contains a higher TBN of 11.8 (almost similar to the Delvac 5W-40's TBN of 12.0), better than the fully synthetics Motul Specific CRDi 5W-40 having only 7.4 and better than the Torco SD-5 MPZ of only around 8.0;

    3. It also has a higher flash point (resistance to burn) than the Motul oil and the Mobil 1 Delvac 5W-40; and

    4. Higher viscosity index (an indicator or a measure of oil's stability NOT changing much across temperature changes - so the higher the index, the more stable is the oil), than any of the oils mentioned here, even better than its more viscous brother, Mobil Delvac 5W-40.

    Why i mentioned the other oils and compare them to this Mobil1 0W-40 fully-synthetic? ---- Because alongside the much thinner or less viscous Besco 10W-30 semi-synthetic oil, Isuzu also recommends the Mobil1 Delvac 5W-40, Torco SD-5 MPZ 15W-40, and Motul Specific CRDi 5W-40 among its list of oil. Take note, Isuzu's much beloved in-house oil, the Besco 10W-30, only has a kinematic viscosity of less than 10 cSt at 100-deg Celcius. At 40-deg Celsius, it has only 65 cSt.

    Up to you guys to take advantage of the discount....

    Dalhin ang MU-7 titanium sa pinas! :D HAHAHA
  • gero_ph Nov 16 2011 @ 09:53am
    "old school components are still reliable, less complicated and less maintenance too,,, and i think its the reason why isuzu still does this, most people want a reliable and hence a less cost of maintenance vehicle,, and isuzu is granting what most owners want.... we dont need complicated engines that delivers more power and speed for we cant use it most of the times due to road and traffic conditions... for me im ok with the basic... (tipid tlaga and less worries)" - crosswind owner

    IMHO, i would buy the new model if I don't own one. I'm currently own a XUV 2001 model @ 100,000km odo reading, its still in perfect condition. If i want CRDI iTeQ, i choose an Alterra or DMAx.
  • Carfanatic Nov 16 2011 @ 03:13pm
    True upgrade for the Crosswind is a new model not just a facelift one.
  • dtkiko Nov 16 2011 @ 06:12pm
    @gero_ph:

    Sir, with all due respect, after one Crosswind and two DMax's, enough is enough for us.... i'd say. They are durable, yes, but not really hardly you would see the difference in durability under any normal usage and immaculate preventive maintenance measures that you would also do to your other cars.... The 2003 Crosswind and the 2004 DMax both have travelled now in the range of >300,000 km. BUT, you see longevity also depends on the owner.

    Sa totoo lang sir, namihasa na masiado ang Isuzu Motors for not giving us Pinoys the best models they give to other countries.... I mean the "other" DMax CRDi, which is the 3.0 iTEQ VGS Turbo is not a weakling, nor is less durable nor less reliable than our long-overdue 3.0 Ddi-iTEQ here in Philippines ---- the engine on the VGS model is actually just an improved version of our 3.0 Ddi-iTEQ we have here in Philippines. Mind you, the engine on our Philippine-DMax dates back since 2004, while the DMax 3.0 iTEQ VGS Turbo came out in 2006. This DMax is actually just nearby being assembled ---- in our fellow Southeast Asian neighbour, Thailand....

    NOW, why does Isuzu Motors keep on starving us Pinoys, still for 2012 now, not giving us this DMax VGS model when there is already an all-new 2012 Isuzu RT-50 pickup???? Is Philippines, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Laos treated as junkyards of old Isuzu engines and we don't deserve the best????

    Simply, enough is enough.... It's time to move on ---- we just acquired a new Toyota Innova D-4D and soon we'll be selling the Crosswind and perhaps even the old DMax....

    Masyadong unfair ang isuzu sa mga pinoy ba't ba ayaw nila ibigay yung mga nasa thailand sa pilipinas?
  • dmaxred18 Feb 08 2012 @ 09:52am
    Stick to ISUZU pa rin ako!,. kahit ano pa sabihin ng mga walang kwentang nagkokoment!
  • mondragon May 01 2012 @ 09:33am
    first of all, bago ko mgcoment sa new d-max and crosswind...

    isuzu's forte is wat?D-I-E-S-E-L engine making & T-R-U-C-K making... khit anu pa advance ng makina ng mitsubishi wid der fuso/canter they cannot overtake d more tough/durable/reliable/fuel efficient ISUZU especially on trucks....simple..ganito lng yan..... ilan ang nakikita mo na ISUZU trucks sa daan?ilan ang nkkita mo na mitsubishi trucks sa daan?kahit paghaluin mo pa yang ibang trucks gaya ng ud trucks/volvo/man/hyundai/mazda/jinbei/jac/foton ni hindi man lang halos makakalahati sa bilang ng ISUZU trucks yan... araw2x from office to house vice versa di bababa sa 50 ISUZU trucks mkkta ko sa daan anytym of the day... ung grupo ng mitsubishi.ud/foton/etc pinakamarami na ung 30.. minsan 20 nga lang...

    anu ibig sbhin?ms madami padin satisfied sa reliability/fuel efficiency ng ISUZU compare sa ibang brand.. d q snsabi na di mattibay ang mitsubishi/etc pero base sa dami ng gumagamit ng ISUZU i guess the overall champion in truckmaking is ISUZU... pwde na cgro 1st placer/2nd placer ung iba...
    kumbaga mitsubishi & other trucks are good, but ISUZU is still d best..


    sa all new d-max naman improved n tlg sya... we dont need mkpgsbayan sa mga advanced d-max sa ibang bansa..kung atat ka lumipat k ng bansa..imagine d price.. kahit ano pick up pa yan, pg ms advance, ms mahal... ms gusto mo ms advance?mghanda k ng malaking halaga...
    4 me enough na ung d-max ngaun sa pinas..ms tahimik n sya ng konti..although timing gear pa din sya pero crdi na nman na..my dagdag power na.. fuel efficient padin

    sa crosswind nman, tama lang na di sya crdi... tatak isuzu na ang mjo mabagal/maingay/mejo mtgtag pero hanep nman sa tibay at tipid... since hilander days pa... nmmhalan na ng tau sa topend ng crosswind ggawin mo pa crdi... wg na... ms gusto ko nga ms maingay na tulad nung dati eh...
    ok na din yang crosswind ngaun.... pwde pampamilya/business
    • dmaxred18 Oct 01 2012 @ 10:16pm
      yeah ur right sir Mondragon! thanks for ur nice comment sir!
  • mondragon 8 months ago
    to DMZ- sorry mr pathetic but as long as isuzu lives, mitsubishi won't be able to equal neither "higitan" ang isuzu sa TRUCK sales in ALL CATEGORIES (light-medium-heavy category).. y? i dunno... haha.. most trucks being used around the globe are isuzu... kht nga d2 sa pinas mgbilang k ng trucks- brand new & used.... lumamang ba ang mitsu sa isuzu?never!! istitution na kc isuzu pg dating sa trucks.... cgro ms mtipid din... try mu mgbilang pg my time.... isuzu trucks (all categories combined ah, brand new & used) vs.... all other brands including mitsu... kht san k mgpunta... ... gnun lng un... kya isuzu is still reigning as #1 truckmaker of all time...plus diesel engine manufacturer, and in auv segment- undefeated crosswind... nannwala aq if ganu katipid ang crosswind sa adventure, gnun din ang isuzu trucks sa iba....
