In collaboration with Arctic Trucks, Isuzu UK developed this purpose-built KB off-roader. Anyone planning a grueling road trip in the icy, cold wilderness?

The Isuzu D-MAX range has an exciting and very exclusive new limited-edition flagship, and it is a derivative which takes off-road prowess to new heights.

Set for local launch in May 2019, the Isuzu D-MAX Arctic AT 35 is based on the 300 4x4 Double Cab LX Auto and was developed in close collaboration with Arctic Trucks, the Icelandic company famed for its high-riding, all-conquering bakkies.

"The Isuzu D-MAX is respected for its fit-for-purpose design, outstanding reliability and proven durability," says Dominic Rimmer, Executive, Technical Services at Isuzu Motors South Africa (IMSA).

"The very exclusive Isuzu D-MAX Arctic AT 35 is aimed at the customer who wants an extremely capable but thoroughly unique bakkie that certainly stands out from the crowd, but demands a properly engineered solution," Rimmer adds.

"Whether driven in arduous off-road conditions or used on the road, this is a rugged and character-filled bakkie certainly commands attention.

"Engineered and built in South Africa, the Isuzu D-MAX Arctic has undergone full local validation with Isuzu's engineering team playing a hands-on role to ensure the D-MAX strengths of reliability and durability are not compromised."

The Isuzu D-MAX Arctic's distinctive look is totally functional, and is sure to turn heads with an unashamedly muscular presence befitting such a vehicle.

The flared wheel arches add a substantial 180mm to the overall width while ride height is 48mm up on a standard D-MAX for additional ground clearance.

Those lucky enough to snap up one of the eye-catching limited edition that will be available in South Africa will therefore enjoy full factory warranty and dealer back-up.

They can also rest assured that it is designed to handle South Africa's toughest conditions with unprecedented capability and confidence.

The Isuzu D-MAX Arctic AT 35 will be available from May at a recommended retail price of R785 000.

The Isuzu D-MAX range comes standard with Isuzu Complete Care, comprising a five-year or 120 000km bumper-to-bumper warranty and Isuzu Roadside Assistance, a five-year/unlimited km anti-corrosion warranty and a five-year/90 000 km Service Plan.

Service intervals are every 15 000 km/12 months.

Extended cover can be purchased for Roadside Assistance, Service Plans and Maintenance Plans.
