DieselDrive test our Isuzu KB72 4x4“To commemorate the successful completion of a gruelling 72-hour endurance challenge in 2010, General Motors SA thought it only suitable that the impressive feat was to be celebrated with a special edition of their formidable and (still) surprisingly popular KB250 LE double-cab, renamed and repackaged for this purpose as the KB72.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the KB’s endurance feats, the challenge was based on a drive to better previously established time and distance records for diesel-powered bakkies in 2003. During the challenge, Isuzu demonstrated the reliability, durability and economy of its proven diesel technology.
