Earlier this month, Arctic Trucks gave us a look at its pre-production Isuzu D-Max AT35. We have now been given information regarding the final production version together with a detailed list of technical specifications.
The new Isuzu D-Max AT35 looks largely unchanged from the pre-production model with the chunky tyres and wide body kit all being carried over. In terms of dimensions, the buffed-up bakkie measures 5 265 mm long, 2 040 mm wide and 1 895 tall. Next to the standard model, this one is 315 mm wider and 205 mm taller. The wheelbase remains the same at 3 125 mm but the front and rear track are increased by 125 mm with a measurement of 1 695 mm on both axles. Ground clearance is up 33 mm with a quoted figure of 273 mm.
Kerb mass for the Isuzu D-Max AT35 has been quoted at 2 230 kg which is quite a bit more than the 2 045 kg figure quoted for the standard double-cab model. With the new body kit, the D-Max offers an approach angle of 35 degrees and departure angle of 29,7 degrees. The 17-inch wheels are wrapped in 315/70 tyres that are designed to traverse both snow and sand.
Where power is concerned, the Isuzu D-Max AT35 retains its turbodiesel 3,0-litre four-cylinder unit with a power output of 140 kW and 450 N.m of torque which powers the 4×4 system via a six-speed automatic transmission. The standard 76-litre fuel tank has been replaced with an endurance 140-litre one for those that wish to partake in lengthy expeditions. A radio-controlled winch and snorkel is fitted as an aid for medium and heavy off-road terrain and when crossing water obstacles.
