Isuzu D-Max crowned 'Best Pick-up' at annual fleet awards
Isuzu have done it again, and claimed a third award in as many months, being awarded ‘Best Pick-up’ in the prestigious Van Fleet World Honours ceremony, held at Pall Mall in London.
John Kendall, Van Fleet World Editor, said: “With the D-Max pick-up range Isuzu has moved from a manufacturer of robust, workhorse trucks, to a full-line pick-up supplier with a wide spread of models and specifications. As one of the few manufacturers to offer a complete pick-up range, including single, extended and double cabs, as well as 4×2 and 4×4 drivelines, Isuzu continues to appeal to its core working utility customer base.”
The judges of The Van Fleet World Honours take in to account all motor manufacturers, combining their expert opinion, and choosing the manufacturers that they think have achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector.
Kendall continues, “With the introduction of high specification double-cab models, the company now appeals equally to dual-use and leisure users. Isuzu has also taken an innovative approach to distribution, marketing its utility models through an unusual spread of dealers, including agricultural machinery outlets and competitive 4×4 dealers. Good to drive, with strong performance and frugal economy, the D-Max range is a big step in the right direction for Isuzu.”
The D-Max is one of the most cost effective pick-ups on the market today, with ultra-low insurance groups (8A to 10A), class-leading residual values and fuel economy, industry-leading fleet packages (available from £185 per month), all backed-up by the company’s pioneering five-year / 125,000-mile warranty.
