IN A sig­nif­i­cant PR boost for North­ern Ire­land’s pre­miere agri­cul­tural event, Isuzu have con­firmed their new gen­er­a­tion D-max will re­ceive its UK pub­lic launch at this year’s Bal­moral Show. “Bal­moral is the nat­u­ral choice as D-max sales in North­ern Ire­land are boom­ing. D-max reg­u­larly topped North­ern Ire­land pick-up sales charts in 2016” said an Isuzu spokesper­son. “North­ern Ire­land is a very im­por­tant mar­ket for us and we’re de­lighted to be giv­ing all new D-max its first pub­lic show­ing at the North’s premier agri­cul­tural event. The full new 2017 D-max range, plus the stun­ning Arc­tic AT35 D-max will be on our stand to give us our big­gest and best ever Isuzu line-up at any Show in Ire­land, North or South. New D-max is more pow­er­ful, bet­ter equipped and more eco­nom­i­cal – and still out­stand­ing value for busi­ness and pri­vate buy­ers alike.”

The ex­ist­ing range line up from the much-loved D-max is car­ried over; Util­ity, Eiger, Yukon, Utah and Blade with a range of sin­gle, ex­tended and dou­ble cab vari­ants avail­able. The en­try-level Util­ity D-max, priced from £15,749 (CVOTR) comes newly equipped with LED day­time run­ning lights, Hill Start As­sist, Hill De­scent Con­trol, Blue­tooth® con­nec­tiv­ity, power win­dows and air condi- tion­ing.

Eiger dou­ble cab (from £20,499 CVOTR) adds a re­vers­ing cam­era, 16-inch al­loy wheels, body coloured bumpers, au­dio sys­tem with CD player and 6 speak­ers.

Yukon (from £20,499 CVOTR) adds 18-inch al­loy wheels, sil­ver side steps, new 7-inch multi-func­tion touch­screen, LED rear lights, Cruise Con­trol, rear load liner and a leather steer­ing wheel.

Utah (from £24,149 CVOTR) takes com­fort up a notch with key­less en­try with push but­ton start, Ap­ple Carplay™ and An­droid Auto™, satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, DAB dig­i­tal ra­dio, roof bars, leather up­hol­stery with heated front seats, rear park­ing sen­sors, au­to­matic air con­di­tion­ing.

The range-top­ping Blade (from £26,999 CVOTR) adds tinted win­dows, 9-inch multi-func­tion touch­screen, re­mote lock­ing lower tail­gate, Blade pud­dle lamps, front and rear park­ing sen­sors, and a colour-coded Aeroklas canopy or sports bar with roller cover.

D-max has been ex­ten­sively over­hauled with the big­gest changes un­der the bon­net. A brand new 1.9 litre turbo diesel en­gine has been fit­ted, with an in­creased power out­put of 164 PS and 360Nm of torque. The en­gine builds upon D-max’s work­horse char­ac­ter and re­tains the 3.5 tonne tow­ing ca­pac­ity and 1 tonne pay­load whilst pro­vid­ing a qui­eter, more re­fined and eco­nom­i­cal driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Im­por­tantly, the new en­gine meets Euro 6 stan­dards with­out the need for ad­di­tion of Ad­blue.

As per pre­vi­ous D-max mod­els Shift- On-the-fly 4x4, and low range gears are a key fea­ture of the 17MY truck.

New D-max comes with a 125,000-mile/five year war­ranty, be­ing the first pick-up in the UK to be of­fered with such a com­pre­hen­sive peace-of-mind pack­age.

Run­ning costs are kept down by 12,000-mile or 24-month ser­vice in­ter­vals, five years’ re­cov­ery and Euro­pean cover, a three-year paint war­ranty, and a six-year anti-cor­ro­sion war­ranty. Be the first to see the new D-max at this year’s Bal­moral Show and be sure to say the Belfast Tele­graph sent you!
