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.
