COLESHILL, UNITED KINGDOM – Marc 18, 2013: The widely-acclaimed Isuzu D-Max has collected yet another accolade – the prestigious 2013 VansA2Z Pick-Up of the Year Award, announced in London on Thursday.

Launched last June, the D-Max has quickly established itself as a worthy successor to the highly popular Rodeo and has become a big sales hit, elevating the Japanese brand to second place in the UK pick-up sales rankings.

Neil McIntee, editor of, said of the D-Max: “There’s a seemingly endless supply of torque from the 2.5 litre commonrail diesel engine, a full choice of body styles and trim levels; it’s an accomplished mud-plugger, it can match load capabilities with the best, and its external dimensions make it feel nimble to drive. The icing on the cake is the generous five year/125,000-mile warranty.”

William Brown, Isuzu UK General Manager, commented: “This is a terrific accomplishment for Isuzu in a very competitive market, and demonstrates just how well the D-Max balances its tough and rugged capabilities with exceptional every day refinement. We’ve worked hard in the UK to ensure the vehicle’s strong attributes are matched by its pioneering warranty, impressive standard specifications, low contract hire rates and high residual values. It’s very gratifying to see those efforts recognised with this award.”

The Isuzu D-Max range includes single, extended (with rear-hinged side access panels) and double cab body configurations. Double cab models are available in four specifications: Isuzu D-Max, Eiger, Yukon and Utah. Prices start at 14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level Isuzu D-Max 4x2 single cab and rise to 21,999 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Isuzu D-Max Utah 4x4 double cab automatic.

The Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a completely re-engineered, 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine and is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The pick-up is also covered by an industry leading five-year / 125,000-mile warranty.

Isuzu UK continues to present customers with additional great value offers, and recently introduced ‘Work’ and ‘Work Plus’ accessory packs, each saving buyers hundreds of pounds on the cost of the individual constituent parts.
