Isuzu UTE Australia launched in 2008 distributing the Isuzu D-Max Ute in 4x4 and 4x2 types. For years Isuzu utes were sold in Australia as Holden Rodeos, but after the deal between the two companies ended, Holden called their ute Colorado and Isuzu decided to use D-max instead (even though it owns the rights to the Rodeo name). Isuzu is owned by the Mitsubishi Corporation.

Isuzu MU-X v Ssangyong Rexton : Comparison review

Australia is a bloody big continent, and while many cling to the coast living among small city streets, there are large families beyond the suburbs who may need seven-seat space and proper off-road capability. That equation can’t be provided more affordably than the $39,990 driveaway Ssangyong Rexton...

Mitsubishi Triton Exceed v Isuzu D-Max LS-Terrain Comparison Review

There's never been a better time than right now to be guying a new dual cab utility in Australia. If you need a truck that's capable of tackling the working week but also dealing with family duties on the weekend, you've never had more choice than you have in 2015. Two of the more utilitarian options in the segment have always been the Isuzu D-Max and Mitsubishi Triton...

Isuzu D-MAX X-RUNNER Limited Edition : Surfing with Ryan Hipwood

The swell is building for ISUZU – with sales of the D-MAX growing rapidly – making it one of Australia’s most popular utes (sales up more than 20% last year). It’s practical, functional and goes the distance – and for one of our talented Aussie big wave surfers, that is a big deal.

Isuzu D-Max 4x2 Cab Chassis tray with a Smart Car

Read the article here. Cab-chassis utes are the cornerstone of landscape gardeners, project managers and primary producers around the country. The traditional drop-side aluminium tray is a flexible tool, but just what can you fit? The Isuzu D-Max has a 2.5m x 1.8m tray and a 1.2-tonne payload capacity. That's more than enough space for two standard palettes...

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Utes, pick-ups, trucks, dual-cabs, double-cabs – whatever you call them, these big four-door 4x4 haulers are massively important to buyers in Australia. The 4x4 utility segment has boomed in recent years, and it remains one of the strongest parts of the Australian new car market – indeed, roughly one in every 10 vehicles sold in this country will be a four-wheel-drive commercial vehicle...

The updated, Thai-market Isuzu D-Max has made its way online.

It also appears that new six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions will be available on the D-Max range — at least in Thailand...

Australia doesn’t love utes – it loves pick-up trucks

I call a ute a ute. I don’t call it a pick-up. I don’t call it a truck (although I like the macho nature of the word truck). It’s clear, however, that the word 'ute' is being phased out of car company marketing chit-chat, and it could well be that buyers are following the same path...

2015 Isuzu MU-X Review

SUV's are far from a new concept. You can travel back in time to World War II and find prominent examples of their ancestors being utilised on both sides of the war. From the Willys Jeep to the trusty Toyota Land Cruiser, there have been numerous examples and incarnations of ways to take the whole family off roading, to tame the outback and conquer the terrain unreachable by regular automobile...

2014 Isuzu MU-X LS-T Review

This was my first brand new car. Went from a 2002 diesel Toyota Prado. Having young kids features are very important as we do lots of driving.

Customer service is shocking to non-existent, no contact after submitting questions on line, didn't call back when they said they were going to...
