The 4HK1-TC diesel engine which powers Isuzu D-Max Ute has received a B10 durability rating, according to the company at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. This rating indicates that 90% of Isuzu 4HK1TC engines will last for 375,000 miles before needing major repairs or rebuilds. The 4HK1-TC engine had a B10 rating that covered 310,000 miles.
The engine manufacturers provide a B10-life rating as a standard gauge to help consumers assess the engine's long-term durability. The percentage of an engine's inhabitants that will need to be overhauled before the specified mileage is indicated by the number after the "B". Made from cutting-edge technology, this ute is more comfortable than ever before.

Shaun Skinner, president of the company, stated that Isuzu diesel engines are well-known worldwide for their reliability and long-term reliability. "Our engines are stronger than ever, with our new B-10 rating." Turbocharged and intercooled, the 4HK1TC four-cylinder diesel engine produces 215 horsepower. Different models have different torque ratings.
This engine can be fitted to Isuzu NPR–HD, NPR–XD, NQR and NRR models as well as the 2018 Isuzu FTR 6 truck. The warranty on each model is limited to three years and unlimited mileage. Customers who wish to order theirs immediately can place an order through the Isuzu Utes New Zealand website, with a $500 deposit, or through their local Isuzu dealer.
The all-new D-Max features enhanced safety, more power and torque, off-road capability, and enhanced technology. Sam Waller, general manager of Isuzu Utes New Zealand, says that the ute is now ruggedly refined. The legendary 3L diesel turbo engine from Isuzu has been upgraded to produce 10kW more power (now 140kW), and 20Nm more torque, (now 450Nm), across a wider range.
