Marking a century as an automaker, Isuzu has launched the new D-Max Centurion Special Edition, which will be offered in just 100 examples in the United Kingdom.
Billed as “the ultimate pickup“, it went on sale from April 9, which was the 100th day of the year for a starting price of £30,999 ($43,770), with £11,000 ($15,530) worth of extras.
On the exterior, it boasts 19-inch black and silver Hurricane alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Zero rubber, spoiler fitments on both ends that create the impression of a more planted stance without affecting ground clearance or ride height, stainless steel side bars and sidesteps, black and silver roof bars, LED DRLs, Alpha Sports tonneau cover and remote tailgate locking.
Inside, Isuzu added leather upholstery on the seats, steering wheel and front center armrest, along with rear door entry guards that display the Illuminated Isuzu logo and a Centurion-branded Bed Rug dedicated to the firm’s centenary.
Upgrades also include the new Alpine entertainment system, with an 8-inch touchscreen, six speakers with active subwoofer, a roof-mounted 10.2-inch monitor at the rear, two wireless headphone sets and a rearview camera.
Mechanically, the special edition pickup truck is still powered by the 2.5-liter twin-turbo diesel that’s rated at 163 PS (161 HP) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Fuel economy stands at 38.7 mpg UK (32.2 mpg US / 7.3 lt/100 km) and, just like the rest of the D-Max range, the Centurion boasts a towing capacity of 3.5 tonnes.
