Isuzu has recently announced that the 2012 D-Max will be launched in the United Kingdom, where the entry-level version will set you back for 14, 999 GBP.

According to the car manufacturer, the new generation of the Isuzu D-Max will actually go on sale in June in the United Kingdom, following its world premiere at the 2012 Commercial Vehicle Show, which will be held on the 24th of April in Birmingham, but even so, the model has been highlighted by the company in an effort to attract more customers into the brand.

Isuzu says that the single cab with two-wheel drive has a starting price of 14,599 GBP (CVOTR) and the model is coming with standard features such as the daytime running lights, electric windows, front, side and curtain airbags and air conditioning. The double cab, set further up in the range, can be bought for GBP18,499, and the model is adding the six-speaker sound system, leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, 17-inch rims and chrome exterior detailing. The top trim level, named “Utah” is offering more comfort in the cabin thanks to the leather upholstery, heated front seats, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, roof bars and automatic transmission, for 21,499 GBP.

The new generation of the Isuzu D-Max will be offered in the United Kingdom with the 2.5 liter twin-turbo common rail diesel engine, which is meeting the Euro5 emission standards, and it’s developing a total output of 161 horsepower and a peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) at 1,400 rpm. The unit can be mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission which will allow the drive to adjust between the two and four-wheel drive modes while traveling at speeds up to 60 mph (96 km/h).
