Fancy an adventure in a pick-up truck kitted out with everything, including the kitchen sink? Japan’s Isuzu has the answer, says RAY MASSEY

Fancy an adventure in a chunky pick-up truck kitted out with everything, including the kitchen sink? 

Japan’s Isuzu has the answer — with a special expedition-ready version of its new D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35, which I spotted at this week’s Commercial Vehicle Show at Birmingham’s NEC. 

Ready for action: It includes a rooftop tent, fridge, three-burner gas stove, 12-litre collapsible sink, luggage space, safe storage for a gas bottle, water and fuel containers

Created by Isuzu’s UK team and codenamed Basecamp, it is based around the standard AT35 which went on sale this month from £47,999. 

It includes: a rooftop tent, fridge, three-burner gas stove, 12-litre collapsible sink, luggage space, safe storage for a gas bottle, water and fuel containers. 

With 4×4 drive, towing capabilities of 3.5 tonnes, and a maximum payload of 1,161kg, it rides on 17-inch black Arctic Trucks alloy wheels fitted with 35-inch LT315/70 R17 mud-terrain tyres.

The lightweight rooftop tent reached by ladder has a skyview window – which gives you extra light by day and a view of the stars by night – and an interior map of the world to inspire the adventurous spirit of travel.

Isuzu UK product manager Brian Wheeler said: ‘Basecamp is built to conquer all types of landscapes and be a true adventure vehicle. It demonstrates the extreme nature and possibilities of new the AT35 and really does embrace everything you need, including a roof tent and the kitchen sink!

‘It is a professionally re-engineered vehicle incorporating significant enhancements to the body, frame, drivetrain, suspension, and tyres. The new flagship model in the D-Max range retains its commercial vehicle status, with no compromise to payload or towing capacity and comes with Isuzu’s five-year/125,000-mile warranty.’

Isuzu was founded in 1916 in Japan and began importing into the UK in 1987 with the Trooper model.
