Isuzu adds a new twist to its sporty Costa 4x4 two-seater truck prototype. Push a button, and a motor-driven sliding deck moves forward to cover the rear seats, effectively silencing back-seat drivers or just adding a sportier appearance. The vehicle also explores plastic body panels as a definite coming trend to pickups in general. The powerplant is a 2.6-liter Four cranking out 120 hp and 146 ft.-lb. of torque.
