In South Africa, Isuzu has built more than 20,224 KBs since its launch in March 2013. In commemoration of its success, Isuzu is will now offer a special “Midnite Edition” KB 300 double cab. Only 500 will be built, and is set to be available in September 2014.
“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.
Available in red, white, or silver, the Midnite Edition is enhanced by black trim from bumper to bumper. At the front, a specialised black bumper guard is complemented by a black radiator grille, continuing along the flanks with black mirror caps, roof rails, side steps, window surrounds, and black 17-inch alloy wheels; at the rear, a standard tow bar sits beneath a black rear bumper. This special treatment is complemented off by a black sportsbar behind the cab complete with Midnite Edition decals and branded door sill plates.
“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,” adds Nonkonyana.
Each Midnight Edition receives a special plaque with a unique engraved number that indicates the sequence of the 500 special edition vehicle. The interior is further distinguished by special Midnite Edition carpets.
All three Midnite Editions are powered by Isuzu’s 3.0-litre D-TEQ diesel with the choice of a 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission, and the choice of 4×2 or 4×4 drivetrain − the latter with a manual gearbox only.
