Buyers shopping for a new dive truck this year should add the Isuzu D-Max to their test drive list.

Isuzu is hardly new to the pickup truck game, and indeed has sold the Rodeo here for many years. Thanks to tie-ins with other manufacturers, Isuzu trucks have also underpinned other vehicles, notably the Ford Ranger and Vauxhall Frontera.

The D-Max continues this tradition since it’s related to a Chevrolet model in the US and a Holden ‘ute’ in Australia.

In common with rivals such as the Nissan Navara and Ford Ranger, the new D-Max mixes creature comforts with hardy capability. A flatbed load area can easily handle cylinders, rebreathers and a compressor or two. And the cabin will stay lovely and dry…

The D-Max will be powered by a range of “highly efficient” new diesel engines, so should have plenty of towing capability for the club RIB.

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK said: “the all-new Isuzu D-Max is an incredibly appealing package that will deliver in every key area that matters to those in farming, construction and other outdoor industries.”

Isuzu will introduce the new D-Max pick-up in June 2012.
