Isuzu launches limited edition D-Max Blade+

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Van Expert?

Isuzu UK has launched a limited-edition addition to its D-Max range – the Blade+ double cab, which has an array of extra features compared to the standard Blade. 

Production of the D-Max Blade+ is limited to 150 vehicles and it is available in manual and automatic transmissions.

This pick-up retains the features of the Isuzu D-Max Blade but also includes a range of extra equipment to the standard double cab. For instance, customers can choose between an Alpha Type E Canopy or Mountain Top Roller Cover with Black Sports Bar. The colour coded Alpha Type E Leisure canopy has pop-out side windows, central locking and black roof bars while the Mountain Top Roller Cover with Black Sports Bar combines practical storage with a sporty, lifestyle look.

A front skirt, which comprises a grey lower section and gloss black upper section with red stripe detail, elevates the exterior styling and is complemented by a new 19” gun metal alloy wheel design.  An upgrade in size and style, the new wheel offering includes a full-size spare alloy wheel and locking wheel nuts included as standard.

Blade+ is equipped with a comprehensive safety package including front camera, reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors. In addition, new Lazer Lights are mounted to the front bumper to improve visibility. Plus, it’s even easier to operate as the pro-lift tailgate assist gives the tailgate movement a smoother look and feel and makes it light enough to close with just one finger.

Limited to an exclusive run of only 150 vehicles, Blade+ features a numbered interior badge positioned just in front of the gearstick. Bespoke Blade+ decals, puddle lamps, illuminated door sills and leather upholstery contribute to a feeling of luxury and with a wireless charger removing the hassle of forgetting your phone cable it’s easy to stay connected.

The Isuzu D-Max Blade+ retains its 3.5 tonne towing, 125,000 mile/five year warranty (whichever comes first) and five year roadside assistance in the UK and across Europe.

Blade+ is available in three colours: Cosmic Black Mica, Obsidian Grey Mica, and Spinel Red Mica.

Priced at £29,999 CVOTR for a manual and £30,999 CVOTR for an automatic, Blade+ is available to order now, and arrives in dealerships this week.
