I've been doind some heavy research and it has finally all paid off. ISUZU has a Thai partner called Thai Rung Automotive. They have a model called the Adventure Master, and it has won car of the year in Thailand, or so the website said. It was rough to seperate the Thai parts and the English parts. THIS IS AN SUV VERSION OF THE D-MAX FROM ISUZU. This is exactly what executive VP Terry Maloney desribd in this article on ISUZU's future in April 2003:

In 2005-06, Isuzu hopes to get a body-on-frame SUV built on the company's Thai-market pickup. As shown to reporters in sketch form at the New York show, it would be larger than the Rodeo and the old Trooper, but shorter and narrower than the Ascender.

I have plenty of pics and a little info at my ISUZU webage:

This could be ISUZU's secret weapon in hiding. I think it looks great and stylish, and the interior reminds me of the new Infiniti QX56. This is one serious SUV and i think with proper advertising it could be a big hit. Finally, a new SUV that is 100% ISUZU tough. Im so excited and im glad i could make this known to everybody. What do you guys think of it?

Nice pics. The 3rd row area appears larger than I expected so this truck will def. be longer than any current Isuzu. Hopefully it will be wider but it's looking a little tight there. I think I remember reading on a website it will have a link rear suspension(while the d-max pickup is leaf in the rear). Front is t-bars IIRC. Holden is selling the Rodeo(aka D-max Pickup) with the trusty 3.5 V6 Gas so I suspect that if it does make it here, that will probably be the Gas engine option. I'm not going to hold my breath for the TD engine which would be nice though.

It appears they are building Nissan Patrols(suv we don't get) and they Frontier Pickup as well for the Thai Market as well.
