If you are slightly nostalgic or the new Holden Colorado doesn’t quite tickle your fancy – then you’re in luck, with Isuzu set to debut its new Ute range based on the next generation Rodeo.
Despite the feud which led to the release of the Colorado, with Isuzu owning the rights to the Rodeo namesake in Australia – this new model will instead be known as the D-MAX.
The move follows the establishment of Isuzu UTE Australia Pty Ltd, a new organisation separate from its brand sibling which will import and wholesale the Isuzu D-MAX range to newly-appointed dealers around the country.
The new D-MAX will essentially pick up where the Rodeo left off, with the range including 4×2 and 4×4 variants in pickup and cab/chassis configurations.
CarAdvice will be attending the launch of the new Isuzu D-Max, so expect a first steer and full review over the coming weeks.
