award winning d-max triumphs at 2018 trade van driver awards

Birmingham 24th April 2018 - The award-winning Isuzu D-Max continues its year of success with ‘Best Workhorse Pickup’ Award at the 2018 Trade Van Driver Awards. 

Praised for its trademark workhorse credentials, the Isuzu D-Max claimed the title for its hardworking nature, gutsy performance and low cost of ownership. Judges of the award also credited the D-Max for its robust build and high-class appearance. 

Presented at the CV Show earlier today, the award continues the success the Isuzu D-Max has already enjoyed in 2018. Known for reliability, capability and workhorse credentials, the Isuzu D-Max proves quite clearly ‘It Just Works’. 

William Brown, Managing Director at Isuzu UK, said on receiving the award: “The Isuzu D-Max has a solid reputation as the professional pickup, working hard for drivers and offering class leading durability. This award is another testament to that reputation, especially as the judging panel consisted of industry experts and professional pickup drivers alike. 

Trade Van Driver is the only magazine which caters for the owner-driver and small fleet operator and as such its awards are different from others as they are judged not only by the expert panel of journalists at the magazine but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses. 

The award-winning D-Max has already had a successful 2018 being named both WhatVan? Pickup Of the Year 2018 and Professional Pickup and 4X4 Magazines Most Reliable Pickup of 2018, impressing judges across the board with its workhorse nature, unbeatable reliability, 1 tonne payload and maximum 3.5 tonne towing capability.
