Isuzu Enhances Dealer Network

Agricultural workers, urban tradespeople and recreational users of pick-ups around the north-east of England can now benefit from even greater access to Isuzu’s range of rugged and refined pick-ups.

This follows the appointment of Tustain Motors Northumberland group’s 4x4 specialist site, Dennis Common, as an official Isuzu sales, after sales and parts dealer.

With the appointment effective from 1st April, the Dennis Common garage in Morpeth, Northumberland – which was recently acquired by the Tustain Motors group – will be expanded to accommodate the addition of the award-winning Isuzu D-Max pick-up model. The site will stock the entire D-Max series, from entry-level utility vehicles through to the premium range.

The Tustain Motors group is long-established in passenger car and commercial vehicles sales, with five showrooms in the north-east. In taking over the long-established Dennis Common showroom site, Tustain Motors aims to extend its acclaimed and award-winning customer service skills to the sales and aftersales care of Isuzu customers.

“We are honoured to be able to expand our current portfolio of brands with this new appointment,” said Brian Baxter, Dealer Principal at Tustain Motors. “We are excited to be able to present our customers with the Isuzu D-Max, a pick-up with a strong heritage and renowned for its reliability and ruggedness. These qualities will fit well with a large proportion of our customers that hail from the large rural area we serve.”

This year, Isuzu UK is marking 100 years since the global vehicle manufacturer first laid down foundations in Tokyo, Japan. Dennis Common already has immediate plans to feature Isuzu’s special centenary at a selection of local events such as county and garden shows, as well as other activities later in the year.

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said:
“The reputation of Tustain Motors group speaks for itself, and it ranks among the best commercial vehicle dealership groups in the north of England. The Dennis Common site itself is a great fit for our ever-expanding Isuzu dealer network and its values for exceptional customer service ring true with those of the Isuzu brand. It is ideally located to introduce new customers to our multi-award winning D-Max, the pick-up that raised the bar for refinement, performance and efficiency in the sector.”

The Isuzu D-Max is available in three body styles through the Dennis Common branch – single, extended and double cab – with prices starting from £14,999 (CVOTR) for the entry-level single cab 4x2 rising to £25,999 (CVOTR) for the range-topping Isuzu Blade. The Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a super-efficient 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 163 PS and 400 Nm of torque, is able to tow a class-leading 3.5-tonnes (braked) while still returning fuel economy of 38.7 mpg (combined), and is available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

Since the D-Max launched in 2012, the practical pick-up has helped Isuzu on its way to record vehicle sales. Strong D-Max sales contributed towards a 478% registrations boost since 2009 – and Isuzu UK continues to break its own sales records as 6,220 D-Max were snapped up last year – a 13% year-on-year rise.

Located on West Road Garage, Longframlington, Morpeth, NE65 8HX, the Dennis Common dealership is open from 08:00 to 18:00 from Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 17:00 on Saturday and 10:00 to 16:00 on Sunday.
