PICK-UP sales are boom­ing in North­ern Ire­land, and 2016 has been con­firmed as Isuzu’s best ever year in NI. Their class-lead­ing D-max sales rose a mas­sive 64% on 2015’s pre­vi­ous record per­for­mance, vir­tu­ally triple the sec­tor growth rate. The brand has now en­joyed four straight years of phe­nom­e­nal growth here.

“We’re de­lighted, and plan to grow again in 2017” said John Barr, Isuzu’s Crum­lin-based 2016 Dealer of the Year. “Ev­ery NI Isuzu dealer had a record year, D-max is undis­puted class-leader with 3.5 tonne tow­ing, 125,000 mile/5 year war­ranty and best in class Con­tract Hire rates. Or­der take for 2017 is re­ally strong, our cus­tomers hap­pily rec­om­mend D-max, there is no bet­ter ad­vert than sat­is­fied own­ers”.

“Lan­drover own­ers are buy­ing D-max in record num­bers” said Peter Eakin of Eakin Bros in Claudy. “Since De­fender ceased pro­duc­tion D-max has been the re­place­ment ve­hi­cle of choice. Farm­ers love Isuzu’s UFU scheme – drive your hard deal, then get an ex­tra 4% ad­di­tional gen­uine dis­count up-front off the in­voice on the UFU Affin­ity pro­gramme. On any D-max model at any NI dealer”.

“Isuzu only build com­mer­cials, we un­der­stand that buy­ers ex­pect their D-max to work as hard as they do” said Michael Tur­tle of Wil­sons Rathkenny. “Busi­nesses en­joy sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits choos­ing a com­mer­cial over a car, pur­chase and run­ning costs and all VAT can be off­set against tax. Con­tract Hire de­liv­ers cash flow ben­e­fits, low ini­tial ren­tals and af­ford­able monthly or sea­sonal pay­ments. We can of­fer cash­back against old equip­ment to change into a new pick-up.”

“Isuzu D-max comes in three body styles, sin­gle, ex­tended or dou­ble cabs” said Lis­burn-based Des East­wood. “The ba­sic body is bare back, we of­fer a range of canopies, lights, tow­bars and ac­ces­sories to fit your ve­hi­cle out for ex­actly the job you have in mind. If you tow for hire or re­ward D-max comes tacho ready, and has satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion and plug-and-play re­verse camera up­grades to make life much eas­ier for big mileage users. Com­pat­i­ble ‘phones can Blue­tooth to com­plete your of­fice on the move.”

“First-time buy­ers re­port great sat­is­fac­tion with the econ­omy, re­li­a­bil­ity and resid­u­als of D-max” said Dun­gan­non dealer Noel Gormley “A num­ber of Past Pres­i­dents of the UFU are D-max buy­ers which speaks vol­umes for the prod­uct. The D-max range en­com­passes the work­horse steel wheeled pick-up through to range top­ping Blade with heated seats, be­spoke leather and ev­ery lux­ury as stan­dard. Im­mo­bilis­ers are fit­ted as fac­tory stan­dard equip­ment.”

“Choose six speed man­ual or five speed auto, all have shift on the fly 2WD/4WD” said Western Cars Pat Mccaf­frey “Right now we have a 2 year 0% Hire Pur­chase deal and our low­est ever rates on Con­tract Hire – ex­clu­sive NI drive­away deals on Yukon from just £999 down and £249 monthly, in­clud­ing free metal­lic paint.
