Isuzu D-Max LS-U Dual Cab CC 2023 Review

Isuzu D-MAX LS-U Dual Cab Trayback 4WD Ute

Isuzu D-Max – A few weeks ago I took the long-term test Isuzu D-Max LS-U out to the farm for a few days. We had some fencing repairs to do, and it was a great opportunity to go for a longer drive.

There have been a few flash floods along the creek bed lately and the bank has washed away and taken the fence with it. Now fencing isn’t one of my favourite things to do. In fact, in my list of top 100 things I enjoy doing, fencing comes in around number 499.

However, it needed to be done.

The drive out was relaxed and comfortable. Even though the LS-U misses out on several of the comfort features like heated leather seats, the fabric seats thankfully have additional electronic lumbar support. They are also warm, which was a bonus as it was minus 2 in the early mornings.

The dual cab LS-U Dual Cab Trayback D-Max was right at home on the farm. Plenty of room inside, dual range 4WD system, powerful and robust engine, and a large tray for all the gear.

This trip showed exactly how versatile the D-Max LS-U Dual Cab Trayback is.

Isuzu D-Max LS-U tray back dual cab Ute is priced from around $59,500 plus the usual costs

Final thoughts Isuzu D-Max LS-U Dual Cab Trayback

I’ve said it many times. The D-Max is a robust, reliable and practical 4WD Ute.

The LS-U Trayback Dual Cab 4WD Ute is perhaps the best mix between recreational and work Ute.

It’s comfortable and spacious inside, but has more than 1000kg payload.

Ideal for worksites and family holidays.

The D-Max will tow 3500kg with ease, go anywhere you will sensibly want to go off road and do it in comfort. All D-Max vehicles come with the tow assembly installed. All you have to do is add the hitch tongue you want.

Isuzu D-Max is a favourite Ute of mine.

RDAP means Recommended Drive Away Price (without options but including all other charges)
