Isuzu has updated its D-Max pick-up, with more equipment, improved technology, increased safety and a refreshed look. The wheelbase has been increased by 30mm, to provide improved in-cab space, particularly in the rear. Despite having a longer cab and a slightly longer pick-up bed though, the D-Max is actually shorter overall, as the more vertical front end and 30mm higher bonnet line have reduced the front overhang.
Isuzu has shuffled the pack to create three distinct pick-up lines – Utility, All Purpose and Adventure. All benefit from a host of ADAS systems that have contributed to a five-star Euro NCAP rating. In-cab equipment is generous at all levels and, despite a predicted move up market, the company promises to remain true to its working truck roots.
Full report and first drive in the May issue of Van User.
