Isuzu is to unveil its new generation D-max pick-up truck at the CV Show, which will be held at the NEC in Birmingham from 25 to 27 April, before the model goes on sale in the Spring.

The manufacturer has given the D-max a new 1.9-litre turbo-diesel engine, with output of 164hp and 360Nm torque to replace the 2.5, 163hp unit in the previous generation.

While retaining a 1.0-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity, Isuzu claimed the new model would deliver a quieter, more refined and more economical driving experience.

The interior gets an uplift in trim as well as new touchscreen entertainment systems with Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

The 2017 model-year truck retains the Shift-on-the-Fly 4×4 system of previous versions, which enables the driver to select four-wheel drive on the move as well as low range gears via a rotary dial.

Hill descent control and hill start assist are fitted across the range.

The D-Max comes with Isuzu’s five-year / 125,000-mile warranty,12,000-mile or 24-month service intervals, five years’ recovery and European cover, a three-year paint warranty and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty.
