Isuzu’s has revealed an eye-catching new prototype pick-up truck, the Isuzu D-Max AT35 Arctic Truck.
The new D-Max is easily identified by a bold exterior redesign, the horizontal bonnet and vertical front face giving it a more powerful stance.
The interior has seen a substantial upgrade, with soft-touch plastics giving it a more upmarket feel. A new 4.2in colour Multi-Information Display, which incorporates infotainment, parking sensors and system health checks, dominates the revised dashboard. The steering wheel is now fully adjustable, and a speed-sensitive electronic power steering system is now standard.
New D-Max is powered by a 1.9-litre 162hp (360Nm) Euro-6D Diesel engine, matched to either manual or automatic transmissions. The latter has been upgraded, with 25% quicker shifts. Brakes, suspension and cab mounts have also all be revised, and a Stop & Start system now comes as standard.

The Isuzu D-Max AT35 Arctic Truck will be added to the range next spring. Isuzu anticipates that the V-Cross Double Cab will be the best seller.
