CAP Monitor forecasts that the Isuzu D-Max 4x4 double cab will retain 39.9 per cent of its original price (£17,749 CVOTR), excluding VAT, after three years and 60,000 miles. The Isuzu D-Max officially goes on sale at dealers across the UK on 14 July 2012.
Tim Cattlin, editor of CAP CV Monitor commented: “Having experienced first-hand the new Isuzu D-Max in challenging on- and off-road situations, I’m really impressed with its robustness, build quality and capabilities.

William Brown, general manager of Isuzu UK, commented: “The projected residual values for the Isuzu D-Max reflect the long-lasting appeal of our strategy for the new model in the UK. While our tough new pick-up is a very impressive performer on- and off-road, we have complemented its technical capabilities with the best ownership proposition in the sector.
“With competitive pricing, generous specification levels and a unique five-year / 120,000-mile warranty, we’re delighted – yet not entirely surprised – that the all-new Isuzu D-Max is projected to hold its value more strongly than its competitors,” continues Brown. “We are confident that this compelling package will generate record sales for Isuzu in the UK this year,” added Brown.
The new Isuzu D-Max pick-up is available in three bodystyles: single cab, extended cab (with rear-hinged side access panels) and double cab. Prices start at £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level Isuzu D-Max 4x2 single cab and rise to £21,499 (CVOTR) for top-of-the-range Isuzu D-Max Utah 4x4 double cab automatic.
