(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The highly-acclaimed Isuzu DMax has collected yet another award recently, this time from Trade Van Driver magazine.
It was crowned Best 4x4 Trade Pick-Up' at the publication's third annual awards. This is the second accolade that the pick-up has collected in as many months, following the VansA2Z.com Pick-Up of the Year' title that the D-Max collected for a second consecutive year. The expert judging panel concluded that the D-Max is unmatched in meeting the needs of the professional user. Matthew Eisenegger, editor at Trade Van Driver, commented, ''Its solid, nononsense approach, we feel, just can't be beaten for those who need a real tough workhorse.''
Isuzu UK general manager, William Brown, collected the trophy on behalf of the brand at the 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show, held at the NEC, Birmingham. ''The D-Max continues to defy expectations and new-vehicle lifecycle trends by continually increasing sales “ both to business and retail, underlining the pickup's popularity and class-leading capabilities,'' said Brown.
''Isuzu built its reputation in the trade sector for building tough pick-ups that meet the varied day-to-day needs of commercial users and this award confirms that we continue to meet this brief. The introduction of the special edition Blade model further broadens the appeal of the D-Max and means we now boast one of the widest pick-up ranges available to UK customers.'' Published six times a year, Trade Van Driver is the only publication dedicated to profiling transport solutions for the trade professional', with a specific focus on small business users.
The 11 Trade Van Driver award categories, conceived to recognise manufacturers that offer the very best products and services to trade van buyers, are judged by an expert panel made up of journalists and readers who rely on light commercial vehicles for their businesses. Ushering in a new era in pickup trucks and with almost a century of truck-manufacturing DNA, the Isuzu D-Max redefines the toughness and is an amalgamation of splendid design, excellent performance, durability, immense safety and resilience, built on the solid reputation that its predecessor created for the Isuzu brand as a manufacturer of highly capable, robust, dependable pick-ups, the D-Max is the result of the most comprehensive new product development programme in Isuzu's history.
