The Dmax on the youtube channel 4WD action is a capable off roader,a diesel with the payload listed above would sell.OZ gets a 3 liter,that may be a better option here.

Thats awesome. Funny I put a 1.9 Tdi ALH in my 2001 us spec Dodge Dakota. I get 28.5 us MPG all day unloaded. I think it would sell great here in the US. My hack job swap is now where near those payload specs though it handles 2k lbs in the bed regularly.

Can you tell me what the engine letter designator is for that 1.9 in the dmax? Im currious what motor it is. Thanks.
Any pictures of the Dakota? It sounds like a heck of a truck

I still think if we had a mid size truck with that capability it would own the US market. it would be all people need and with that MPG it would sell like crazy.
Agreed. only thing close is the colorado Diesel but they are not cheap. Hense why I built my own.

Sadly the 3.0 D-Max engine that the Aussies have doesn't pass Euro 6 legislation (or Euro 5). I would be very surprised if it passed California emissions tests.

Isuzu & Chevy were working together until recently. Isuzu are now partnered with Mazda for the next generation D-Max. Maybe the US will get that when it is launched.

I was pretty much decided on a D-Max before I saw the 4WD Action videos, but they were the 'icing on the cake' for me. With a camper mounted there is no way I would be wheeling it that hard, and my truck is on 35" on 31". That truck has just TC no lockers

Another Colorado ZR2. Possibly the best vehicle I've ever owned and it's up against Jeep Rubicons and Dodge Cummins diesels. The Cummins ruled but unfortunately not available in such a capable package as this Chevy. (New truck - boring pic. Hopefully better to follow soon!)
