If you’re in the market for a pick-up and based within striking distance of Shrewsbury, Isuzu has extended its West Midlands dealer network with the appointment of Shukers Ltd, at Bayston Hill in Shropshire.
Tradesmen and small businesses with a requirement for pick-ups, such as farmers, forestry workers and landscapers, will be able to test the Isuzu range on Shukers’ own off-road demonstration track, based at its sister dealership on Battlefield Road.
The new Isuzu D-Max pick-up is available in three body styles – single, extended and double cab – with prices starting from £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level single cab 4×2 model. The D-Max is fitted with a completely re-engineered 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 163PS and 400Nm of torque, and is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. All new Isuzu pick-ups are available with the a five-year/120,000-mile warranty.
Nick Apperley, Sales Manager at Shukers, told Business Vans: “The all-new Isuzu D-Max performs exceptionally around our off-road demonstration track, with its improved manoeuvrability, powerful and efficient engine, and new ‘switch-on-the-fly’ four-wheel-drive system. We’re proud of our state-of-the-art showroom and are confident that the Isuzu brand will be well received as an exciting new prospect for new and existing customers.”
