Isuzu will offer a more exclusive version of its KB 300 double cab from the end of September 2014. The Midnite Edition bakkie has a limited production run of 500 units.
Available in red, white or silver metallic only, ‘Midnite’ is distinguished by a special black bumper guard and black radiator grille, black mirror caps, roof rails, side steps and window surrounds, and black 17-inch alloy wheels. A black rear bumper completes the style package, along with a black ‘rollbar’ and branded doorsill plates.
Inside the cabin, Midnite Edition carpets and a plaque bearing the unit’s unique number of the 500 built, set the special apart. As for practicality, a tow bar is standard..
Midnite Edition models are powered by Isuzu’s 130kW/380Nm 3.0-litre D-Teq turbodiesel engine mated to five-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Choices of 4×2 and 4×4 (with manual only) drivetrains are offered, too. As with the rest of the KB range, the special bakkie is sold with a five-year or 120 000 km warranty and a five-year or 90 000 km service plan. Service intervals are at every 15 000km.
