Isuzu cuts the mustard with D-max Blade

Isuzu has produced a special edition pick-up model exclusively for the UK market.

The brand claimed the D-max Blade offers £5000 worth of additional equipment but is available from £24,995, excluding VAT, for the six-speed manual model, representing a saving of £1000 compared to buying the accessories separately.

A five-speed auto version is available from £25,995.

The Blade features 18-inch ‘Shadow’ alloy wheels designed to chime in with the ‘Shadow’ grey front grille. It also gets privacy glass windows, black door and tailgate handles, black roof bars and rear bumper and heavy-duty side steps. Isuzu has designed the exterior additions to contrast with the two available body colours, black or white.

An under-rail bed liner comes as standard and customers can choose between an Aeroklas hard-top model with an internal light or a Mountain Top black roller top cover, which Isuzu said is unique to the Blade and can not be purchased as a separate accessory.

Inside the double-cab Blade features automatic climate control and black leather seats, which are heated in the front. It also gets DAB radio and a 6.1-inch touchscreen navigation system fitted with a rear-view reversing camera.

Power comes from a 2.5L 163hp twin-turbo diesel engine returning official combined fuel economy of 38.2mpg.
