Argyllshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

JUDGED by a panel of 12 ‘pick-up pro­fes­sion­als’, judges tested the Isuzu D-Max both on- and off-road and were im­pressed by the strong build qual­ity and renowned work­horse char­ac­ter.

Launched in 2017, the new gen­er­a­tion Isuzu D-Max in­tro­duced a brand new 1.9-litre turbo diesel en­gine, which re­tains the 3.5-tonne tow­ing ca­pac­ity and over 1-tonne pay­load while pro­vid­ing a qui­eter, more re­fined and eco­nom­i­cal driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

Pro­fes­sional Pick-up & 4x4 edi­tor Liam Camp­bell com­mented on the win: ‘Isuzu has been held in high re­gard for build qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity right back to the Trooper days, and our study con­firmed this. In the end, 407 pick-up truck own­ers were sur­veyed, and the D-Max came out on top. ‘This is great news for Isuzu as re­li­a­bil­ity is a very im­por­tant is­sue for pick-up truck own­ers, many of whom are owner-op­er­a­tors and rely on their ve­hi­cle for mul­ti­ple uses.’

Isuzu UK man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Wil­liam Brown com­mented: ‘We’re re­ally proud to re­ceive this award as it strength­ens the D-Max’s po­si­tion as the most re­li­able ve­hi­cle in the sec­tor. It’s re­ally pleas­ing that pro­fes­sion­als from a num­ber of in­dus­tries have recog­nised all the hard work that has gone in at Isuzu UK to make such a great prod­uct.

‘We make pick­ups for real pro­fes­sion­als, and this award is tes­ta­ment to that fact.’

The re­li­a­bil­ity award fol­lows a suc­cess­ful year for the new gen­er­a­tion D-Max, which claimed ‘Pickup Of The Year” at the 2018 What Van? Awards.
