A greater range to choose from
General Motors South Africa (GMSA) is expanding its recently launched sixth-generation Isuzu KB family, adding five extra model derivatives to the range – promising increased value for money for future KB owners.
The new offering is ideal for prospective fleet buyers, as GMSA has carried over its tried, tested and trusted 2,5-litre low-pressure turbo diesel engine from the previous generation Isuzu KB to two of the new derivatives – the KB 250 Base Single Cab and KB 250 Fleetside Single Cab.
GMSA says that these new models carry exceptional sticker prices and low running costs; great news for companies looking to buy more than one vehicle, as these factors play an important part in the buying process.
The 2,5-litre engine produces 58 kW of power at 3 800 r/min and a decent amount of torque – 170 Nm at 1 800 r/min – offering sturdy pulling power and efficient driving characteristics to companies that need their fleet to lug things around.
GMSA’s new KB 250 models deliver an average 7,8 litres per 100 km, with the Base derivative retailing for R197 200 and the Fleetside model for R214 100. Both come standard with a five-year/90 000 km service plan and a five-year/120 000 km warranty, as with all Isuzu KB models.
But the family expansion doesn’t end there as some upholstery modifications are increasing the competitiveness of the range-topping LX models. Featuring durable and attractive cloth-covered seats, three new Double Cab LX models reflect a R9 500 saving over their leather-covered counterparts.
However, the new models will continue to feature standard passenger side airbags, which are integrated into each front seat. The pricing is R400 900, R413 900 and R454 900 for the KB 300 D-TEQ Double Cab LX, LX Automatic and LX 4×4 respectively.
