Isuzu D-Max updated with new variants
Automatic transmission and rear differential lock are now more widely available across the range
- New D-Max starts from £21,999
- Extra safety features
- Automatic gearbox offered on more versions
The Isuzu D-Max pickup line-up has been broadened, with a total of 17 variations now available. An automatic gearbox and a rear differential lock can now be specified on more models, as Isuzu looks to draw buyers away from rivals like the Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara.
An automatic gearbox is now optional in the Utility Extended Cab, Utility Double Cab, and DL20 Extended Cab, all previously limited to manual transmission only. The addition means that a rear differential lock can now be selected on the entire range, making the basic Utility models more useful.
Safety features including traffic sign recognition and lane departure warning are to be standard across all models. The tough exterior remains unchanged from the latest refresh. Top of the line V-Cross models retain larger wheels and painted bumpers whilst Utility specification keeps the hard plastic bumpers, steel wheels, and vinyl floor.
With a 3.5 tonne towing capacity and a five-year/125,000-mile warranty, the 2022 Isuzu D-Max is up there with the most capable pickups. Its long warranty suggests that the Japanese manufacturer has faith in the D-Max’s reliability.
The new variations of the D-Max truck will be an attractive option to those that want a vehicle that is strong and reliable but was previously limited in its offering. The range begins at £21,999 excluding VAT.
