Arctic Trucks adds extreme off-road extras to toughest ever Isuzu D-Max
The Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 is built to take on Icelandic wastes - or the Yorkshire Dales
Arctic Trucks has been engineering 4x4 ‘super trucks’ for over 25 years, but this is the first time you’ll be able to buy one of their vehicles direct from a mainstream manufacturer’s UK dealer network. The result of the collaboration has just been revealed in Birmingham at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
Available in single or double-cab configurations, the D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 will instantly stand out on British roads thanks to its suspension lift and huge 35-inch specialist off-road tyres on 17 x 10-inch wheels. Riding 125mm higher than the standard D-Max, and with flared wheelarches over that enormous rubber, Isuzu says the modification give its pick-up truck the extra off-road performance to take on the harsh terrain of a frozen Icelandic lava flow - or even a green lane on the Yorkshire moors - in its stride.
The D-Max Artic Trucks AT35 uses the standard Isuzu 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine making 161bhp and 400Nm, and retains the standard one-tonne payload and 3.5-tonne towing capacity of its stablemates.
The vehicle will be on sale from late spring this year, costing from £30,995. A range of extras to further enhance the rugged looks – and capability – include an Arctic Trucks roll bar and load bay protector, plus skid plates, an LED work light and an ARB tyre inflator.
