With time and money, your Isuzu D-Max can become a unstoppable offroader.
The Isuzu D-Max, in standard form, is already well-respected for its outstanding reliability record as well as its formidable workhorse ability in tough terrain. However, with time and money, any vehicle, the D-Max included, can be elevated to the next level. Take this UK-built Isuzu D-Max GO2 as an example.
Perhaps the most prominent feature is the heavy-duty front bumper which has an ARB Sahara bar and is further equipped with a Britpart power winch, which according to Isuzu, is capable of pulling 4 tons, which is noteworthy.
A full under-guard kit is fitted to prevent damage when traversing difficult terrain and 16-inch wheels with rugged 33-inch Grabber X3 Mud Terrain tyres will ensure maximum grip. The D-Max GO2 is also fitted with a Safari snorkel and beefed-up Pedders TrakRyder suspension system and a lockable rear differential. A heavy-duty rear bumper is also fitted along with a spring-loaded, Pro-Lift tailgate.
In terms of enhanced practicality, the load bay itself features a retractable Moutain Top cover and an aluminium bed draw system with lockable storage compartments.
Isuzu UK executive, Darren James commented “This is a fantastic working example of just how easily the Isuzu D-Max can be adapted and transformed into a ‘do anything, go anywhere’ pick-up and should definitely give our customers some inspiration for what they can achieve in their own D-Max,” stated
The Isuzu D-Max is powered by a 3.0-litre turbodiesel engine with 130 kW and 380 Nm of torque and is offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.
