Isuzu: Appleyard Is New Home To Iconic Pick-Up Brand


Professional tradespeople in the Greater Manchester area can now benefit from even better access to Isuzu’s range of rugged and dependable pick-ups, after the Japanese-marque appointed Ashton-under-Lyne-based Colin Appleyard Cars as an official dealer.


Established in 1971, Colin Appleyard Cars offers customers a wide range of services, including a state-of-the-art showroom, dedicated parts and aftersales department, and full-servicing facilities.

“We have a strong track record of attracting tradespeople into our showroom, and the Isuzu brand is an interesting prospect for our current and potential customers,” commented Colin Appleyard Car’s Dealer Principal, Andrew Ogle.  “For those who need a robust and capable 4×4 that offers excellent load-bay and towing capacities, the Isuzu Rodeo’s 1,000 kg payload and three-tonne towing capacity make it the perfect choice.”

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “Colin Appleyard Cars joins the Isuzu network at a very exciting time for the brand.  The Rodeo pick-up has delivered impressive year-on-year sales growth and has cemented Isuzu’s enviable reputation as a supplier of dependable, rugged and highly capable pick-ups.  The all-new Isuzu D-Max that arrives in June will feature significant improvements in refinement, performance and efficiency.  Colin Appleyard Cars is ideally located to capitalise on this new product launch in this important region for Isuzu.”

Rodeo prices start at £13,995 (CVOTR) for the entry-level 136bhp 2.5 Rodeo Single Cab 4×2, and rise to £23,495 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range five-seater, 163bhp 3.0 Denver Max LE Auto.  Insurance groupings start at 10A for base models and peak at a still-reasonable 13A.

Located on Cavendish Street in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester, the showroom is open from 09:00 to 17:00 Monday to Saturday, and 11:00 to 16:00 Sundays.  For more information on the services available please contact the dealership on 0161 330 5148.
