The All-New Isuzu D-Max’s trophy cabinet is filling up fast as the dependable grafter collects another award. For the ninth year in a row, the D-Max has been named ‘Best Workhorse Pick-Up’ at the Trade Van Driver awards. Judged by both the magazine’s journalists and readers, who use pick-up trucks for their businesses, the D-Max was praised for its smart driving features, stronger off-road capabilities and 5-star safety.

The All-New Isuzu D-Max is the next-generation workhorse that builds on Isuzu’s renowned durability and practicality with an assertive new exterior and interior design, even greater off-road performance and class-leading Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS). The judges explained that the D-Max’s new features and proficiencies made the new model an even more attractive option for trade buyers.

Matthew Eisenegger, Editor at Trade Van Driver, commented: “The D-Max has always ticked all the right boxes for tradespeople with its solid reliability and impressive off-road capabilities but the new model combines it with levels of refinement, safety and luxuries previously unseen in the pick-up sector. It’s a huge leap forward for Isuzu and a worthy winner for the ninth year running in the view of the judges”.

William Brown, Managing Director at Isuzu UK, remarked: “We’re extremely proud to be awarded ‘Best Workhorse Pick-Up’ as it demonstrates the huge appeal that the All-New Isuzu D-Max has within the trades sector. The new model is built to take on even more demanding work and it’s great that this was recognised by the judges”.

The accolade marks a flying start for the All-New Isuzu D-Max, which has already been awarded ‘Pick-Up of the Year’ by 4x4 Magazine and ‘Best Pick-Up’ at the Business Vans awards. Part of its appeal can be attributed to the comprehensive range of trucks available from the Pick-Up Professionals at Isuzu UK, including three cab types (single, extended and double cab), two layouts (4x2 and 4x4), two transmissions (6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic) and four trim levels (Utility, DL20, DL40 and V-Cross).

Power is derived from an efficient, Euro 6D compliant diesel engine which produces up to 164PS and 360Nm of torque, tows up to 3.5t and can carry over one tonne payload. Prices start from £21,009 CVOTR and all models come with a 125,000 mile / 5 Year warranty and 5 years UK and European roadside assistance.
