With more than 7,500 expressions of interest already received for the D-Max before it arrives onUKroads, Isuzu is anticipating a bumper year for sales of its new pick-up.
The new Isuzu D-Max’s five-year/120,000-mile warranty comprises a standard 36-month/60,000-mile manufacturer’s warranty and an extended warranty provided by the importer, IsuzuUK, for up to a total of 60 months or 120,000 miles, whichever comes sooner.
The extended parts and labour warranty covers any defects in powertrain components or workmanship. That includes engine, transmission and driveline components and major ancillaries such as the air conditioning compressor and power steering pump.
‘Warranty cover for five years or 120,000 miles gives buyers of the new Isuzu D-Max peace of mind for longer than any other pick-up in the UK,’ said William Brown, general manager for Isuzu UK. ‘Isuzu has become renowned for producing rugged, durable pick-ups, and we’re now demonstrating our absolute confidence in the toughness of our new product.’
The new D-Max will be available with four specification levels and three cab configurations – extended cab, single cab and double cab. Prices range from £14,499 (CVOTR) for the single cab 4×2 derivative, rising to £21,499 (CVOTR) for the range-topping ‘Utah’ specification double cab automatic.
The new pick-up is powered by a 163 PS 2.5 litre twin-turbo common rail diesel engine, available with newly-developed six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmissions. The vehicle has a three-tonne (braked) towing capacity and a payload capacity of over 1,000 kg.
