Let’s face it, the Isuzu D-Max has always been a sound choice for those wanting a rugged pickup to meet a range of needs. The latest offering is still a reliable workhorse, and it adds improved driving dynamics and a more refined interior. There’s no doubt too that the levels of safety equipment are class-leading. The 2021 model is a big step up from the version it replaces and can still tow 3,500kg and has a payload of 1,000kg. Opt for the luxurious versions, and you’ll have a vehicle for business during the week and family life or adventures at weekends.
