STRONG: D-Max now lugs class-best 3.5tonnes

The new Isuzu D-Max will lug a segment-leading 3.5tonnes after the Japanese manufacturer increased towing capacity by 500kg.

A response to customer calls to incorporate extra capacity, the braked towing increase will apply to all 4×4 pick-ups registered in the UK from July 1, 2013.

The alteration follows news that the Japanese-marque sold 824 vehicles in March, a UK record.

Isuzu also recently introduced the new accessories range at the 2013 Commercial Vehicle Show, which allows full owner vehicle customisation.

William Brown, General Manager at Isuzu UK, said: “The Isuzu D-Max already boasts class-leading fuel efficiency, residual values and our pioneering five-year/125,000-mile warranty.

“However, the addition of segment-best 3.5-tonne braked towing capacity demonstrates that the Isuzu D-Max is the pick-up of choice for business and recreational users alike.

“The Isuzu D-Max was already a compelling proposition, winning awards and breaking sales records, so it’s fantastic that we can now also offer the highest towing capacity in this highly competitive segment.”

Prices for the Isuzu D-Max start at £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level 4×2 single cab, rising to £21,999 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Utah double cab automatic.

Double cab models are available in four specifications: Isuzu D-Max, Eiger, Yukon and Utah.

    Until Isuzu get the correct towbar set up for commercial users i would not consider this vehicle again even at the towing capacity stated.
    Bought new one this year and because of towbar problems i am looking to sell and move back to Toyota only 3500 miles on the clock wish i had followed my gut instinct and stayed with Toyota.

    Would like to have a word in the ear of William Brown otherwise i am sure Isuzu will not be going any where other than Camping.
