The LS-U+ grade in the D-Max range sits above the LS-U and just under the range topping X-Terrain, with a list price of $63,500.

Only available in the Crew Cab Ute body style, the LS-U+ comes standard with LED headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED fog lights. Sidesteps are also standard, so is a tub liner, tow bar receiver, proximity key with 'walk-away locking' function, carpet floors, a 9.0-inch media system, sat nav, digital radio, Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, and an eight-speaker stereo.  Finally, there are leather seats with black stitching (new for this update), heated front seats and a power adjustable driver’s seat.

The LS-U is powered exclusively by a 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel making 140kW and 450Nm (4JJ3-TCX). A six-speed automatic transmission shifts the gears smoothly, while a six-speed manual gearbox is also offered.

The four-wheel drive version of the LS-U is comfortable on the road and extremely capable off the road with a high and low gear, a braked towing capacity of 3500kg and a ground clearance of 240mm. The two-wheel drive version has the same braked towing capacity and ground clearance. 

The updated D-Max was given the maximum five-star ANCAP rating in 2022. All come with AEB with turn assistance, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assistance, traffic sign recognition, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, trailer sway control and eight airbags.
