WATCH: Isuzu PH Takes RZ4E Blue Powered D-Max, mu-X on Eco Run
Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) recently took the RZ4E Blue Power‘d Isuzu D-Max and Isuzu mu-X on a Fuel Economy Run from Bulacan to La Union and CARMUDI PHILIPPINES was there to cover it.
The all-new 1.9-liter RZ4E Blue Power Engine is Euro 4-compliant and was first made available locally in the Isuzu mu-X midsize SUV. Its availability in the D-Max pickup comes four months later after the mill was first introduced in the mu-X.
“The RZ4E is a new-generation diesel engine which has been the result of Isuzu’s over four years of extensive research in Blue Power diesel engine technology, and represents our first foray into the lower displacement but higher output engine technology that has become the trend in Europe and in Asia,” said IPC President Hajime Koso.
The RZ4E engine produces 148 hp and 350 Nm of torque through either a six-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift mode or a six-speed manual transmission equipped with a Gear Shift Indicator (GSI).
As for the result of the Eco Run, the D-Max reportedly got over 22 kilometers per liter while the mu-X got over 23 km/L.
