Birmingham – 19th December 2018 – Continuing a very successful year, the multi award-winning Isuzu D-Max picks up yet another award, this time we've now been voted 'Best Model' for the Isuzu D-Max Huntsman by the 4x4 magazine in their pick-up of the year awards.

The 4x4 Awards celebrated the contributions of outstanding manufacturers within the 4x4 and Pick-up sectors of the automotive Industry. The Huntsman accessory pack ensuring an even more fit for purpose and highly specialized vehicle.

Manufacturer categories compare vehicles across several core criteria, including capability, durability payload, running costs, fuel efficiency, reliability and aftersales service. So, it is a great accolade that the Isuzu D-Max emerged victorious, beating strong competition from rivals in a highly contested sector.

The Isuzu D-Max was praised for meeting Euro 6 standards without the need for AdBlue, unlike most of its competitors.  It has a 3.5 tonne towing capacity, over 1 tonne payload and provides a quiet, economical driving experience.  The breadth of the Isuzu D-Max range also impressed judges; with single, extended and double-cab formats available, as well as a wide choice of trim levels. Coupled with the attractive five-year/125,000-mile warranty package and 5 years’ roadside assistance (in the UK & Europe), the Isuzu D-Max proved it was truly built for the professionals who use it.

The award-winning Isuzu D-Max has already had a successful 2018, being crowned ‘Pick-Up of The Year’ at the 2018 What Van? Awards, ‘Most Reliable Pick-Up’ for 2018 by Professional Pick-Up & 4X4 magazine, ‘Best Workhorse Pick-Up’ for 2018 by Trade Van Driver, ‘Best Pick-Up 2018’ by Scottish Field, Van/Truck Brand of the year 2018 by On The Tools and ‘Pick Up of the Year’ at Export and Freight Transport and Logistic Awards 2018.
