Migrate to the new Isuzu KB
SERENGETI Special Edition
- SERENGETI Special Edition offers exclusivity and value
- Celebrating Isuzu's legendary capability and reliability
PORT ELIZABETH -
Following on the success of the Midnite Edition introduced in August 2014,
Isuzu is launching another special model in its local line-up, this time paying
homage to the magical and mystical Serengeti.
"Based on the flagship KB 300 LX Double Cab, the new
SERENGETI Special Edition continues Isuzu's heritage of special models in South
Africa. Just as Isuzu's toughness and reliability are legendary and well known
to those who seek the ultimate adventure, the special edition reflects the
essence of resilience of the brand. The new SERENGETI Special Edition has the
looks and appeal to attract attention on the road and set its owners apart from
the rest," says General Motors South Africa Isuzu Brand Manager, Mlungisi
Named after the wondering planes of the Serengeti, This limited
edition resonates the spirit of the fierce warriors of this vast land to the
ambitious over landers in search of individuality, adventure and freedom.
"Through special design and engineering development by our
local team, we have created a truly unique and desirable bakkie, built for
Africa. With distinctive styling features and an imposing stance, the SERENGETI
Special Edition not only makes a bold lifestyle statement but also looks set to
tackle even the wildest weekend off-road adventure."
Available in the complete range of Isuzu colours, the exterior
of the Serengeti Edition offers a host of exterior enhancements. These include
a bumper guard with silver accents, side steps with silver accents, B-pillar
blackout, silver roofrails, a chrome sports bar, towbar, 18-inch alloy wheels
and all-terrain tyres. Decals and badging are eye-catching and prominent,
boldly displaying the SERENGETI Edition's uniqueness and exclusivity. Although
a tonneau cover is not part of the package, it is available as an option.
The interior is equally exclusive, featuring a striking
combination of brushed silver, chrome and black trim, with SERENGETI Special
Edition carpets and chrome door sill plates, distinguishing it from other Isuzu
models. Of course leather seats with power adjust as a standard feature.
Three SERENGETI Special Edition models are available, each
powered by Isuzu's proven 3.0-litre D-TEQ diesel engine with 130 kW of power
and 380 Nm of peak torque on tap and the choice of a 5-speed manual or 5-speed
automatic transmission with a 4x2 drivetrain, or 4x4 with a manual gearbox only.
As tough as ever
The Isuzu KB's 4x4 system remains particularly impressive,
featuring a Terrain Command rotary switch control which allows the driver to
switch between rear-wheel drive (2H), four-wheel drive with rear differential
locking (4H) and low-range (4L), with shift-on-the-fly capability up to 100
The KB also still offers exceptional strength in many aspects,
including towing capacity of up to 3 500 kg and a clever suspension setup
that ensures occupant safety and comfort, no matter what the road or trail
All Isuzu KB models are sold with a fully-comprehensive 5-year/
120 000 km warranty and roadside assistance programme, a 5-year/ unlimited
mileage anti-corrosion warranty and a 5-year/ 90 000 km service plan.
Service intervals are 15 000 km or twelve months for all derivatives.
