The Isuzu KB Bakkie – A Motoring Legend!:

6th, 5th and 4th Generation Isuzu KB
2002 – 2018

Although for all mechanical, and to a certain degree from a style perspective, the final three generations of Isuzu KB were essentially the same vehicle; there were a number of accessory and feature changes which were made to the KB range that ensured that the different generations stood apart from one another. There were also a number of limited edition and special edition KB models released during this time, including:

  • The Midnight Special Edition
  • The Serengeti
  • And The X-Rider

The final version of the Isuzu KB to roll off of the production floor in South Africa was the sixth generation which commenced manufacturing in 2013 and was sold until 2017 (as a 2018 year model). Its predecessor, the fifth generation Isuzu KB was launched in 2004 and was marketed as the bakkie for the new millennium. Before that the fourth generation Isuzu KB became one of the top-selling one-ton bakkies to ever be sold in South Africa. It even outsold all of its rivals not once but twice for 24 months straight in the late 1990s.

Did You Know? As recently as 2010 Isuzu KB bakkies were breaking long-standing speed and distance records. In fact, that very year KB bakkies set 15 new records; including a 72 hours endurance record using a KB 300 D-TEQ bakkie. It completed 12 243.385km at an average speed of 170 047km/h.

3rd Generation Isuzu KB
1988 – 2002

Globally known as the Isuzu Faster or Isuzu Rodeo, this was the final production model sold outside of South Africa, Australia, Latin America, Mexico and China. It is the Isuzu KB Body Design that all of the subsequent generations of KB bakkies were based upon, and is to this day one of the most recognisable bakkie designs in the country. Due to the very rugged nature of this generation of Isuzu bakkie, there are still many of these older models on South African roads.

Due to the longevity of this generation of KB Bakkie it received one major facelift and accessory upgrade. These changes and updates occurred in 1997 and included styling change which gave the KB a more rounded look at the front. It also received a new-look dashboard at the same time, which brought it more in line with the interior look of the globally sold Isuzu vehicles of the time.

1st Generation Isuzu KB
1972 – 1980
