The Isuzu MU7 and the D-Max pickup have just entered India with the hope of cracking their respective segments.
The Japanese duo look like the automotive equivalents of their home country's sumo wrestlers and the bookings are already open at Isuzu's first dealership at Hyderabad. The cars are being imported as CBUs as of now but the car maker is in the process of setting up an assembly plant in Andhra Pradesh.
Since the D-Max is officially here, we thought it is apt to bring to our readers' knowledge that the brawny pickup truck has received a couple of accessory packs in the UK. Called the Work and Work Plus, the accessory packs save considerable amounts on the cost of constituent parts.
The Work pack consists of tow bar, a payload liner, rubber mats for front and rear and waterproof front seat covers. The pack is priced at £499 (around Rs. 41,809) which is a saving of £346 (around Rs. 28,990) pounds.
The Work Plus pack includes all the features of the Work pack and adds premium BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. The Work Plus package is priced at £999 (around Rs. 83,704) which is £411 (around Rs. 34,430) less than the recommended retail price of the individual constituents of the package.
The price range of the D-Max pickup truck in the UK is £14,499 (Rs. 12.14 lakhs) to £21,999 (Rs. 18.43 lakhs). The India spec D-Max is less equipped and retails at Rs. 6.87 lakhs for the single cab version and at Rs. 8.09 lakhs for the double cab version, both the prices being ex-showroom Hyderabad.
