Isuzu UK has revealed a unique show-special version of the All-New Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35, codenamed Basecamp, at this year’s CV Show.
The All-New Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 went on sale in early May, and having been inspired by the extreme nature and possibilities of the new flagship model, the team at Isuzu UK created Basecamp, an expedition ready one-off vehicle, especially for the show.
Basecamp, which is finished in Obsidian Grey with a mainly black colour scheme, is equipped with a lightweight and versatile iKamper SkyCamp Mini 3.0 rooftop tent which features a hard shell with quilted insulation, easy access ladder, iKamper’s signature World Map and even a Skyview window, which gives you extra light by day and a view of the stars by night. This is mounted to a black aluminium Gearmate hardtop canopy, with solid gullwing side and rear access doors. Inside the load bed, the vehicle is equipped with an ARB Outback Solutions modular roller drawer system, with a durable carpet finish. Along with providing luggage space, the system also incorporates a fridge unit and a slide-out kitchen unit, which includes a 3-burner gas stove and a 12-litre collapsible sink.
Mounted to the roof of the vehicle is an ARB Base Rack system that incorporates a front-facing light bar and a bespoke clamp, mount and bracket system allowing safe storage for a gas bottle, water container, fuel containers and recovery boards. Elsewhere, a black ‘A’ bar with three front-facing spotlights is fitted, along with a new design Isuzu accessory front grille and bonnet protector. The side of the vehicle has been enhanced with black sidebars with integrated steps, side window visors and a bespoke ‘Inspired by Extremes’ decal kit. The highly capable and rugged expedition vehicle is finished with 17-inch black Arctic Trucks alloy wheels, fitted with 35-inch LT315/70 R17 mud-terrain tyres.
Brian Wheeler, PR & Product Manager, Isuzu UK said “With the recent launch of the new Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35, we wanted to display a special vehicle at the CV Show that represented what this new model is all about. Built to conquer all types of landscapes and be a true adventure vehicle, Basecamp demonstrates the aspirational nature of the AT35 and really does embrace everything you need, including the kitchen sink!”
Available from £47,999 CVOTR, the Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35 is a professionally re-engineered vehicle incorporating significant enhancements to the body, frame, drivetrain, suspension, and tyres. The new flagship model in the D-Max range retains its commercial vehicle status, with no compromise to payload or towing capacity and comes with Isuzu’s five-year/125,000-mile warranty.
