Gonow X-space Turbo Diesel Range Launch


The 3 turbo-diesel 2.8 litre models enter the market at R127 990 for the highly specced single cab up to R154 990 for the luxury extension double cabin version.

Engine and drive-train

The diesel driven models are powered by a fuel-injected, turbo charged version of a proven Japanese engine with a long and trusted track record.

This 2.8-litre four-cylinder engine has a bore and stroke of 93 x 102 developing 210 Nm of torque.

All X-Space models launched are 4×2 rear-wheel drive units with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The brakes, steering and suspension are identical in all models – dual-circuit vacuum assisted hydraulic brakes with load sensing front discs and drums at the rear; power assisted hydraulic rack and pinion steering; independent front suspension with torsion bar spring and leaf springs at the rear.


The single-cab entry level X-Space TD has the biggest load box of the three derivatives, measuring 2385x1470x440mm on the inside. This translates to a loading capacity of 1 025kg, making it a full 1-ton payload.

As freight lugging work horse the single-cab turbo diesel comes in one variant – the 2,8TD (Deluxe) seating the driver and 1 passenger in individual fully adjustable seats.

The TD single-cab equipment includes a radio/CD, electric windows and side mirrors, superior cloth seats, leather clad steering wheel, remote central locking, 6-stud alloy wheels with 215/75R15 rubber, air-conditioning, power steering, side protection beadings, PVC floor covering, adjustable steering wheel, head rests, fog lamps, digital odometer, sun visor mirrors and a leather gear knob.

The 2.8TDS single-cab will launch at a suggested retail of R127 990.


The new turbo diesel double cab version boast extra space for up to 5 occupants with a bench seat in the rear.

The double-cab has a loading capacity of 1 025kg – the same as that of the single-

cab – with the load box on the standard double-can measuring 1480x1470x440. The full vehicle length of the double-cab is identical to that of the single-cab and comes in at 5 180mm.

Inside the double-cab versions have in addition to the same standard equipment as that of the single-cab versions, full leather interior with aluminium side steps added to the bigger passenger cabin versions (standard and extended double-cab).

The 2.8 diesel turbo double cab is launching only in the luxury specification at a

suggested retail of R149 990

Extended double-cab

To avoid any confusion – the two double-cab bakkies have identical 5-seater passenger cabins and luxury equipment levels. The difference as far as the extended wheel-base is concerned, comes with the size of the 1-ton load box.

The X-Space double-cab LWB comes with a 1835x1470x440mm load box,

extending the overall vehicle length to 5535mm. The much longer load box allows for the safe and easy transport of bulkier loads weighing it at no more than 1 025kg.

The 2.8 diesel turbo extended double is also launching only in the luxury specification

at R154 990
