Why Isuzu make the best pick-up trucks

As a leading commercial vehicle manufacturer with a focus on 'creation without compromise', Isuzu is dedicated to producing the best pick-up trucks. Professional features matched with practical specifications ensure all the trucks in the Isuzu range are perfect for business and recreational users alike.

The D-Max was introduced to the UK pick-up sector in 2012 to follow the success of the Isuzu Rodeo range. With double cab and extended cab options available, additional storage space can be found behind the front seats with easy access through rear-hinged mini-doors. As a key player in the sector, Isuzu also offers Utility and Premium models of the D-Max, with the Eiger, Yukon and Utah upgrading specifications with advanced connectivity and trim levels.

The Eiger offers a five-speed automatic gearbox with sequential shift as an option. Colour-coded bumpers are fitted as standard along with remote central locking and 16-inch alloy wheels. Yukon models increase those to 17-inch alloys, as well as offering a leather steering wheel with cruise control and audio controls, chrome grille and rear bumper, and a six-speaker audio system with exciter speakers embedded into the roof lining. And at the top of the range, the Utah adds automatic climate control, leather upholstery with heated front seats, roof bars and rear parking sensors.

All models benefit from a 2.5-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel with twin turbochargers, offering masses of pulling power with 163PS and 400Nm of torque, resulting in an impressive maximum brake load of 3.5-tonnes. A six-speed manual gearbox ensures relaxed cruising, easy transitions and good fuel economy, with figures achieving 38.2mpg in two-wheel or four-wheel drive options.

Isuzu has achieved leading credentials when it comes to the brute force and practicality of the D-Max range, but has also created one of the safest vehicles in its segment after achieving a four-star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
