Midnite is the new black
More than 20 224 examples of the 6th generation Isuzu KB have been sold since launch in March 2013. Following on the success of the new model, Isuzu is now offering something more exclusive – the special new ‘Midnite Edition’ KB 300 double cab with a limited production run of 500 units.
“The new Midnite Edition continues Isuzu’s heritage of special models in South Africa. Limited edition vehicles are part of Isuzu’s DNA in our country, and the new Midnite 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 Nonkonyana.
“Special design and engineering development by our local team has resulted in a truly desirable bakkie, built just for South Africans, and with limited production of 500 units we expect our passionate followers to receive it enthusiastically.”
Painted exclusively in red, white or metallic silver, the exterior of the Midnite Edition is enhanced by a classic black theme from bumper to bumper. At the front, a specialised black bumper guard adds larger-than-life attitude and is complemented by a black radiator grille. The classic black treatment continues on the flanks with black mirror caps, roof rails, side steps, window surrounds and black 17-inch alloy wheels, and at the rear a standard tow bar sits beneath a black rear bumper. The special design changes are finished off by a black sportsbar behind the cab complete with Midnite Edition decals, and branded door sill plates.
Each vehicle receives a special plaque with the unit’s unique number engraved on it, indicating which of the 500 special edition units it is. The interior is further distinguished by special Midnite Edition carpets.
Three Midnite Edition models are available, each of which is powered by Isuzu’s proven 3.0-litre D-TEQ diesel engine and the choice of a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission with a 4×2 drivetrain, or 4×4 with a manual gearbox only.
