The Isuzu D-Max Utah Luxe is now available to order from UK dealers, priced from £26,159 plus VAT. In terms of specification, the new model sits in between the Utah and the current top-of-the-range mode, the Blade, and is limited to just 75 models.
Isuzu D-Max Utah Luxe specification
As the name suggests, the Utah Luxe is largely based on the Utah with a few extra Brucey Bonuses thrown in. The Utah itself is well furnished, with things like LED lights, front and rear fogs, chrome side steps, leather seats (heated at the front and electronically adjustable for the driver), climate control and a 7-inch touchscreen display with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and DAB radio all coming as standard.
On top of this, Utah Luxe customers also receive a set of very stylish 18-inch ‘diamond cut’ alloys, a front bumper guard, bonnet protector, pro-lift tailgate assist, carpet mats. The ‘pro-lift tailgate assist’ makes the tailgate feel 95% lighter, allowing for easier opening and shutting. In fact, it’s so effective that you can lift it with just one finger.
While the Utah Luxe is available in all the standard Utah colours, Isuzu says that the Splash White, Titanium Silver and Cosmic Black Mica colours are the best suited.
Isuzu D-Max Utah Luxe engine and driveline
As with all the D-Max models, the Utah Luxe is powered by the 1.9-litre RZ4E engine which produces up to 164PS and 360Nm. The engine is hooked to a 6-speed manual transmission, although there is the option of a 6-speed automatic. The D-Max is capable of returning up to 40.4mpg on the combined cycle and is one of the few pickups that doesn’t require AdBlue.
