Here’s what’s new at Isuzu

XTR

The Isuzu D-Max XTR prototype was revealed at the CV Show 2019 and, since its launch last year, the distinctive XTR has become a successful model for Isuzu, forming part of its ‘Adventure’ range. XTR was developed for off-road enthusiasts and drivers who want a vehicle to complement their lifestyle. Essentially, it’s for people who want to stand out from the crowd, so this year, Isuzu has enhanced it even further with the striking XTR Colour Edition.

XTR is still the most sophisticated and authentically capable pick-up in the D-Max range but there’s now an extra twist with a colour coded body kit and green Isuzu badge to refresh the look. These new changes have amplified XTR’s assertive styling but certainly don’t detract from its fantastic off-road capabilities.

GO2

The D-Max GO2 is a special build project that has been customised to show just how easily a D-Max can be converted into an extreme off-roader. Isuzu have chosen a Utah manual in Splash White as the base truck but this is a used vehicle which has been converted post-registration. It’s had some extensive work done and this has been built using Isuzu accessories and other aftermarket parts.

This special build is extreme in every sense of the word and has been designed to go on some gruelling off-road expeditions, which is why it’s been named GO2, because it can go to places other trucks can’t reach.

TIPPER CONVERSION

Isuzu is truly living up to its ‘pick-up professionals’ tagline by offering tipper conversions on its award-winning D-Max pick-up. Based on the Utility Extended Cab, the conversion is a cost-effective solution for customers who require a tough and reliable tipper, with great off-road capabilities.

The tipper conversion combines all the essential workhorse attributes of the D-Max Utility with the practicality of a durable and lightweight tipper body.

As it is based on the extended cab, the load bed is very accommodating measuring 1,977mm long by 1,800mm wide. The rugged ‘Tippadeck’ bed is constructed using 18mm thick interlocking alloy floor panels and loads are kept secure thanks to 300mm high sideboards and tailboard, also made from lightweight alloy, and heavy-duty underfloor tie points.
