To celebrate its one year anniversary, Isuzu Ute Australia is releasing an Arctic Pearl Limited Edition crew cab ute. Unlike other limited editions, the D-Max is literally limited, with only 120 units offered.
The ‘Pearler’ as Isuzu staff call it, is essentially a D-Max optioned out and offered at a lower price than if a buyer was to pick all the options separately.
The options total $5,700 but Isuzu will offer the Pearler for just $3,300 more than the LS 4x2 and LS-U 4x4 crew utes on which it is based.
The most obvious stand out feature of the D-Max Ute Limited Edition is the Pearlescent White metallic paintjob (only colour available for the limited edition). The additional features include
- Front bumper and wheel arch flares,
- Lockable hard tonneau,
- Chrome sports bar with LED brake light array,
- Tasteful chrome appliqués to bonnet, lower grille intake, fog light recesses and taillights, plus ‘Limited Edition’ badging on the rear flanks.
- Blue Tooth connectivity
- Custom-monogrammed carpet mats
- Heavy duty custom cut rubber floor mat.
The Limited edition D-Max ute will start the way for ‘ISUZU’ large format tailgate branding for all future D-Max models. Isuzu says the big logo will help differentiate the Isuzu products from relevant GM-badged utes and "recent skin-deep knock-offs" (which we suspect is a reference to Chinese cars).
Apart from the extra options, all D-Max Ute Limited Editions will come with standard air-conditioning, ABS with EBD, dual airbags, cruise, projector headlights, fold-in power door mirrors with turn indicators, leather tactiles, remote entry, electric windows with one-touch driver’s glass up and down, dual-bin padded centre console, electro-luminescent instrument display, LSD, lockable tailgate, chrome rear step bumper, side steps, alloy wheels including the spare and high-ride suspension.
The D-Max 4x4 range is available with Isuzu's 3.0-litre, common-rail, variable-vane turbo-diesel engine (same engine found in Isuzu’s NNR 200 series two-tonne truck range).
The Isuzu D-MAX Arctic Pearl Limited Edition is available in 4x4 or 4x2, automatic or manual, with manufacturer’s retail pricing (excluding on-road costs) from $39,400.
The Isuzu Ute’s D-MAX range now totals 13 regular model variants ranging from 4x4 and 4x2 drivetrains, cab/chassis and ute variants as well as single, space and crew cabs.
Manufacturer retail prices (plus on-road costs) start from $24,900 to $44,200 (excluding the mentioned Limited Edition ‘Pearler’ crew utes).
