PICTURE(s) OF THE WEEK – ISUZU DraMAXically transform Pick-ups


Isuzu presented three vehicles that showcase an exciting selection of recent projects and new product offerings in the D-Max Pick-up truck range.

First is the D-Max GO2, a special build project that has been customised to show just how easily the 1-tonne D-Max Pick-up can be converted into an extreme Off-roader. It’s been developed to take on the most inhospitable terrain and has had some extensive work done using Isuzu accessories and other aftermarket parts. This is the definition of a ‘go anywhere, do anything’ pick-up and should definitely give customers some inspiration for what they can achieve in their own D-Max.

Next up is the XTR Colour Edition. Launched at last year’s CV Show, XTR is the most sophisticated and authentically capable pick-up in the D-Max range. It was originally developed for off-road enthusiasts and drivers who want a vehicle to complement their lifestyle, so this year, Isuzu have enhanced it even further with the striking XTR Colour Edition. XTR’s assertive styling has been given an extra twist with a colour coded body kit and green Isuzu badge to refresh the look. Plus, it retains those fantastic off-road credentials that make it ‘Capable in the Extreme’.

Finally, for the more commercial customer, Isuzu has developed a tipper conversion based on the Utility Extended Cab.  It combines all the essential workhorse attributes of the D-Max Utility with the practicality of a durable and lightweight tipper body. The tipper conversion really is a cost-effective solution for operators who require a tough and reliable tipper, with great off-road capabilities, and is another example of how Isuzu are always looking at ways they can diversify their product portfolio to meet the demands of their customers.

William Brown, Managing Director at Isuzu UK remarked: “We put a huge amount of effort into creating products that address the needs our customers and these three trucks showcase just how capable, practical and reliable the D-Max is in all environments.”
