A maximum 5-star safety rating for your protection
With an extensive range of active and passive safety features, the D-MAX lives up to our commitment of getting you and your passengers home safely every day. 4x4 Crew Cab and 4x2 Crew Cab High-Ride models achieve a maximum 5-star ANCAP safety rating, so you can drive with complete peace of mind.
ACTIVE SAFETY FEATURES
Hill Start Assist
For added driver control and safety, the D-MAX electronic brake control will automatically engage Hill Start Assist to prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients above 5.7 degrees.
The D-MAX gives you eyes in the back of your head with a reversing camera. Perfect for tricky parking situations, hitching a trailer or reversing out of a driveway. (Standard on LS and SX ute models - accessory available for cab chassis models.)
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
The ultimate in active safety. ESC is created by a network of sensors throughout the D-MAX that can detect if you're over or understeering. If so, ESC commands the ABS, TCS and the engine management computer to make sure you stay in control. Intelligent protection, like a third hand on the steering wheel, keeping you safe.
Emergency Brake Assist
In emergency situations, even the most experienced drivers can panic when hitting the brakes. EBA detects emergency braking and takes over, applying maximum pressure to dramatically reduce stopping distance.
Anti-lock Braking System
Trailer Sway Control (TSC)
Daytime Running Lights
Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD)
Traction Control System (TCS)
PASSIVE SAFETY FEATURES
With front, side and curtain airbags, plus pre-tensioner seatbelts that pull you back when airbags are activated, the D-MAX protects you and your passengers from all sides.
Safety cabin shell
Constructed from high-tensile steel, the cabin offers outstanding strength and rigidity, aided by anti-intrusion bars that provide increased protection in the event of side impact.
Pedestrian safety bonnet
Impact absorbing chassis
