Isuzu’s history in the UK traces right back to the 1980’s with the Isuzu Trooper. Their first pickup, the Faster, was introduced not too long afterwards however, it wasn’t until the Isuzu Rodeo was introduced in 2002 that sales of Isuzu’s pickups started to accelerate in the UK.

The Isuzu Rodeo was consistently one of the best-selling pickups the UK, available with a choice of either a 2.5 or 3.0-litre diesel engine.

The all-new Isuzu D-Max broke cover in 2012 and was the second pickup truck in the UK, after the Ford Ranger, to offer a 3.5t towing capacity. Available with just the 2.5-litre engine, the Isuzu D-Max was favoured among the agricultural industries, with many of their dealers being based in rural areas.

A mid-life refreshed model was introduced in 2017, with a downsized 1.9-litre engine and a range of equipment upgrades. The engine is by far the smallest on the market, but Isuzu has altered the gear ratios so that it still pulls remarkably well.
