The Isuzu D-Max bakkie, modified by Arctic Trucks is now available to tackle the desert sands of the UAE, through local dealer Genavco.
The D-Max AT35 has been fitted with 35-inch tyres on 17×10 wheels and the body has been raised by 30mm with 20mm raised suspension.
The Isuzu 3.0-litre twin-turbo common-rail diesel engine produces 120kW and delivers 400Nm of torque between 1 400 and 2 000 rpm and the D-Max has a 3.5-ton towing capacity.
Other modifications include front and rear fender flares, new dampers, extended-profile sill steps, torque wrench, and “AT” chrome badge and decal set.
Hjalti Hjaltison, General Manager of Arctic Trucks Middle East had this to say, “There has been an increase in the popularity of pick-ups in the region and you very often see them being driven on the roads here. As soon as this version of the Isuzu was launched during the Custom Show in Abu Dhabi, we knew it would be an ‘in-demand’ vehicle, as excitingly it now not only gives the comfort and feel of a standard 4-wheel drive, but the additional horse-power and the monster truck look, means you can’t stop but look twice at it!”.
