ISUZU D-MAX WINS PICK-UP OF THE YEAR AT THE COM­MER­CIAL FLEET AWARDS 2018

Argyllshire Advertiser - - MOTORS -

Con­tin­u­ing a very suc­cess­ful year, the multi award­win­ning Isuzu D-Max picks up yet an­other award, this time at the Com­mer­cial Fleet Awards 2018 where it won ‘Pick-Up of the Year’.

The Com­mer­cial Fleet Awards cel­e­brate the con­tri­bu­tions of out­stand­ing in­di­vid­u­als, com­pa­nies and man­u­fac­tur­ers within the com­mer­cial fleet In­dus­try. More than 600 au­to­mo­tive guests at­tended the event which is seen as an in­te­gral part of the com­mer­cial fleet in­dus­try cal­en­dar and of­fers a vi­tal op­por­tu­nity for the in­dus­try to come to­gether, net­work and cel­e­brate its suc­cesses.

Man­u­fac­turer cat­e­gories com­pare ve­hi­cles across a num­ber of core fleet cri­te­ria, in­clud­ing pay­load, safety, tech­nol­ogy, run­ning costs, fuel ef­fi­ciency, re­li­a­bil­ity and af­ter­sales ser­vice so it is a great ac­co­lade that the Isuzu D-Max emerged vic­to­ri­ous, beat­ing strong com­pe­ti­tion from ri­vals in a highly con­tested sec­tor.

The Isuzu D-Max was praised for meet­ing Euro 6 stan­dards with­out the need for AdBlue, un­like most of its com­peti­tors. It has a 3.5-tonne tow­ing ca­pac­ity, over one-tonne pay­load and pro­vides a quiet, eco­nom­i­cal driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. The breadth of the Isuzu D-Max range also im­pressed judges; with sin­gle, ex­tended and dou­ble-cab for­mats avail­able, as well as a wide choice of trim lev­els. Cou­pled with the at­trac­tive five-year/125,000-mile war­ranty pack­age and five years’ road­side as­sis­tance (in the UK and Europe), the Isuzu D-Max proved it was truly built for the pro­fes­sion­als who use it.

Christo­pher Mac­gowan, OBE, for­mer chief eEx­ec­u­tive of the SMMT and chair­man of the judg­ing panel pre­sented this cov­eted fleet award to Wil­liam Brown, Isuzu UK manag­ing di­rec­tor, who com­mented: ‘The award for the Isuzu D-Max is a demon­stra­tion of the truck’s ca­pa­bil­ity, prac­ti­cal­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity which meets the needs of fleet cus­tomers across the in­dus­try.’
