ISUZU Phils. Corp. (IPC) announced it will be staging the first leg of the 2014 Isuzu D-Max 4×4 Drive Series, which will be held on April 25 to 27 at the Eastgate Center in San Fernando, Pampanga. The company said activities are set to start at 10 a.m. and will last until 6 p.m. during the three-day staging (except on the opening day when the first hour is reserved for invited guests).
Attendance to the event is free of charge.
IPC said the D-Max 4×4 Drive Series, now on its third edition, is a demonstration of its pickup model’s off-road capabilities.
“There is no doubt to the appeal that off-road driving holds over Filipino consumers, as can be seen on the consistent rise of the four-wheel drive pickup segment in the local market,” IPC President Nobuo Izumina said. “Over the years, the performance of the Isuzu D-Max 4×4 contributed to this popularity, and the all-new version of the pickup model will certainly push the growth to new heights.”
IPC said the series-opening leg in Pampanga will tackle a track that features numerous slopes and hills to climb up and descend from, demonstrating the D-Max’s power and traction. Other obstacles and trails will also highlight the capability of the pickup’s Limited Slip Differential and the suspension system’s articulation over varying surfaces, heights and angles.
After the Pampanga leg, the 2014 Isuzu D-Max 4×4 Drive Series moves to Mandaue, Cebu, on May 9 to 11; then to Bacolod City on May 23 to 25; travels to Cagayan de Oro City on June 6 to 8; and culminates in Lanang, Davao City, on June 20 to 22.
