Tradespeople in North Derbyshire can now benefit from even better access to Isuzu’s range of rugged and dependable pick-ups, now that the Japanese marque has appointed Dronfield-based Sheaf Motors as an official dealer.


Family owned and run, Sheaf Motors is located mid-way between Sheffield and Chesterfield, and is already highly regarded locally as a supplier of top quality used 4×4 SUVs, vans and commercial vehicles.  From 27 April, Sheaf Motors will offer Isuzu customers a wide range of services, including new vehicle sales, dedicated parts and aftersales departments, and full-servicing facilities.

“Isuzu is renowned as a producer of well-engineered, reliable pick-ups,” commented Sheaf Motors Sales Manager, Malcolm Mason.  “The arrival of the all-new Isuzu D-Max in June is very exciting and looks set to raise the bar further, setting a new standard for pick-ups.  We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional customer satisfaction – a philosophy shared by Isuzu – and we are delighted to be operating the new franchise.

“Isuzu is an interesting new prospect for our current and potential customers.  For example, many of the farmers and estate keepers living in or near the Peak District National Park need a robust and capable 4×4 that offers excellent load-carrying capabilities.  The new Isuzu D-Max, with its three-tonne towing capacities, means we’ll have the perfect vehicle to meet these needs,” added Mason.

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “Sheaf Motors joins the Isuzu network at a very exciting time for our 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 and rugged pick-ups.  From June, the all-new Isuzu D-Max will feature significant improvements in refinement, performance and efficiency.  Sheaf Motors is ideally placed to capitalise on this new product launch in this important location for Isuzu.”

The all-new Isuzu D-Max will be available in three body styles – single, extended and double cab – with prices starting from £14,499 (CVOTR) for the entry-level single cab 4×2, rising to £21,499 (CVOTR) for the top-of-the-range Utah double cab 4×4 Automatic.  The Isuzu D-Max is fitted with a completely re-engineered, 2.5-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, producing 163 ps and 400 Nm of torque, available with a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.
