Isuzu extends D-Max model range with D-MAX Yukon

Available from October 2014, the extended cab configuration features standard front seats, behind which is a large load area incorporating a fold-down rear bench for occasional use.

The new Yukon specification extended cab – priced from £19,249– is designed for use by both trade and leisure users who prefer the added exterior capacity of a longer rear load bed, require only occasional rear seating, and who still want the interior refinement and equipment available with the Yukon’s specification.

This addition to the model range comes as Isuzu UK announces record June sales, up 85% on the same month in 2013. Sales are up 25% for the year against 2013, itself a record year for the brand in the UK.

Yukon specification models feature a host of standard equipment, including cruise control, air conditioning, 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome grille and rear bumper, heavy-duty side steps, six-speaker surround-sound audio system with roof-mounted “Exciter” speaker, as well as high-visibility projector headlamps and LED rear light clusters.

Powered by a 2.5-litre twin-turbo common-rail diesel engine, the Isuzu D-Max Yukon delivers fuel economy of 38.7 mpg (combined).

‘Since its launch in June 2012, the D-Max has stood for rugged build quality and outstanding on and off-road performance. The new Yukon extended cab further enhances its appeal,’ commented William Brown, general manager at Isuzu UK.

‘We hope this latest addition to what is already one of the most comprehensive line-ups in the sector will allow us to better meet the varied needs of pick-up users.’

Like all models in the D-Max range, the Yukon comes with Isuzu’s five-year / 125,000-mile warranty. Running costs are kept down by 12,000 miles or 24-month service intervals, three years recovery and assistance cover, a three-year paint warranty, and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty.
