Quiz people around the world about who Japan's longest established vehicle manufacturer is, and dollars to donuts, most wouldn't say Isuzu. Founded in 1916, Isuzu's in one form or another can now be found in over 100 countries. The foundation of their worldwide appeal can be directly related to the company's expertise with producing tough as nails commercial vehicles and bulletproof diesel engines. In fact, by 2009, Isuzu had produced over 21 million diesel engines, which can be found in a multitude of vehicles and manufacturers all around the world.

Although Isuzu has long abandoned the U.S. passenger and truck market, it continues to have strong ties with General Motors. When Isuzu revealed its all-new Isuzu D-Max pickup truck, which was designed in cooperation with GM, and is a sister model to the 2012 Chevrolet Colorado, it created an uproar that was heard in the land down under. When it officially launched in Thailand the new Isuzu D-Max was already 100,000 back orders down, which meant supply to countries like Australia wouldn't go as smoothly as hoped. Isuzu was banking on its world renowned diesel engine to keep demand strong down under, and judging by orders which continued to increase every month for the first six months, Isuzu's mission has been successful.

The 2.5-liter Isuzu D-Max turbo-diesel engine is synonymous with durability, reliability and economy and it's available in two versions, one producing 115 hp and the other 136 hp, and both engines can now be easily dialed up another notch by simply upgrading the air filter with a K&N 33-3002 air filter. This high performance air filter is washable and reusable, and it fits directly into the existing air box. Plus, K&N's 33-3002 air filter is engineered to increase horsepower and torque, while providing exceptional filtration and engine protection.

Servicing is as easy as following the cleaning instructions in a K&N Recharger Kit (part no. 99-5050). Depending on your driving conditions, servicing intervals can run up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary. With K&N's famous Million Mile Limited Warranty, this will clearly be the last air filter you'll ever purchase for your 2012 Isuzu D-Max.

The K&N 33-3002 performance air filter fits the following Isuzu D-Max models:
