Updated D-Max, AT35

Isuzu, New Vehicles, Uncategorised

Following last month’s announcement of changes to its popular D-Max pick-up, Isuzu has released further details of two new editions within the D-Max family, namely the AT35 and Fury.

While both the AT35 and Fury will receive Isuzu’s updates inline with the rest of the D-Max stable, these two editions go beyond the regular D-Max models. But first a reminder of the alterations to all D-Max vehicles: the rear suspension is now a three-piece leaf-sprung affair on double cab variants, reducing weight by 10kg and increasing the double cab’s payload by the same amount, and the revised motor now produces 162bhp and 266lbf.ft, all whilst being able to return 40mpg without the need for AdBlue.

Now onto the AT35. As you’d expect from any Arctic Trucks creation, the AT35 looks significantly more purposeful and the colour options of Spinel Red, Sapphire Blue and special order Galena Grey all aid that intent. Inside it’s about as luxurious as a D-Max gets, with leather trim and a dash featuring Isuzu’s 7” colour touchscreen system, compatible with the necessary Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Step outside the comfort zone and the AT35 is emblazoned with various decals and badging, while the flared wheel arches house 35” Nokian Rotiiva all-terrain tyres and smart 17” alloys, finished in black.

This all connects up to the Fox Performance Series suspension, which justifies the extended side steps even more so now for shorter passengers after the adjusted ride height.

Alongside the AT35, Isuzu has released the Fury. No, it hasn’t gotten angry with someone, it’s merely the name of a D-Max derivative. To be exact, the Fury is a bit of a dark (work)horse, with the likes of its radiator grille, alloys, mirrors and side steps all polished off in a mix of dark greys and blacks.

Outside, the Fury has been finished in searing Magma Red, and the angry hue continues into the Isuzu’s badging and the stitching of the upholstery and interior. The seats continue the ominous dark grey theme, although for £1,000 you can substitute in a black and red leather option. Whichever you choose, occupants and onlookers alike will know this is the Fury edition, thanks to decals on the front doors and the same motif being embossed in the headrests.

You’ll be pleased to know the Fury can shout about a lot in the cabin, too, with a reversing camera and 7” touchscreen infotainment system fitted as standard, plus the Fury features front and rear USB ports and Fury-branded floor mats.

If you think these two editions have gone all showy – don’t fret. The D-Max’s 3.5-tonne towing capacity remains, along with Isuzu’s 125,000-mile/five-year warranty and five-year European roadside assistance. Pricing when specified as commercial vehicles begins at £38,545 OTR for the AT35 and £22,499 for the Fury – both are on sale right now.
