Isuzu launches its all-new D-Max pick-up

January 13, 2021

The all-new Isuzu D-Max pick-up will be arriving in showrooms in March and boasts smart new styling, impressive safety technology and improved off-road performance.

Not only does it deliver the strength and durability you’d expect from an Isuzu pick-up truck, this capable workhorse now adds superior levels of comfort and refinement.

Benefitting from an assertive new exterior design, the new D-Max boasts a more distinguishable and powerful appearance. The elevated front-end design and sharp contours generate a more imposing presence which is complemented by distinctive 18-ich alloy wheels and new Bi-LED lights on higher end models.

The interior has been transformed with a sophisticated layered dashboard design and new infotainment systems which provide a more spacious and contemporary feel. This is accompanied by soft-touch panelling and elegant detailing that contributes to a more premium interior which remains fuss-free and practical to operate.

The new front and rear suspension deliver greater refinement without compromising the D-Max’s admirable load-carrying capabilities, and this is complemented by improved road and noise sound-proofing and a new speed-sensitive electronic power steering system which improves manoeuvrability and accuracy.

Isuzu is renowned for its 4×4 expertise and the latest D-Max is even more capable off-road with a faster engaging shift-on-the-fly 4WD system and a standard rear diff-lock on All-Purpose and Adventure models. The durable ladder chassis has been strengthened thanks to larger rails and an extra panel has been added to provide more extensive underbody protection.

Back on the road, it’s safer thanks to a comprehensive ADAS package that includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Speed Limiter and Lane Departure Warning & Prevention on every model.

It is the only pickup in the UK to have a rear radar fitted as standard on all double cab variants and this enables even more ADAS functionality. All double cabs have three additional ADAS systems: Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitor and Emergency Lane Keeping.

The D-Max has taken a huge stride forward in terms of refinement, safety and comfort while retaining its core characteristics of strength, durability and capability. The Euro 6D compliant diesel engine delivers 164PS and 360Nm of torque and is mated to a choice of either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, which offers up to 25 per cent faster gear changes.

Remaining true to its workhorse pedigree, the D-Max is capable of towing up to 3.5 tonnes and carrying over a tonne payload. Customers are presented with a wide range of models to choose from including 4×2 or 4×4, three different cab types (single, extended and double cab) and four brand new trim levels.

Each model comes with a 125,000 mile, five-year warranty and five years UK and European roadside assistance. The pick-up arrives into UK showrooms in March 2021 – more details are expected soon.
