All-new Isuzu D-Max AT35 by Arctic Trucks revealed
Arctic Trucks is famous for building pick-up trucks ready to take on the most extreme conditions. From the Navara, Hilux, Land Cruiser, and even the Santa Fe, Arctic Trucks can boss it when it comes to off-road mods.
This time, they've come out with their own version of the all-new Isuzu D-Max and suited it up in the AT35 package.
Immediately noticeable on this pick-up truck are the massive 35-inch (hence the AT35 badge) BF Goodrich tires and the huge fender flares which are part of the all-terrain wheel package. Arctic Trucks also gave the D-Max a strengthened chassis and Bilstein Performance suspension to combat challenging terrain.
Depending on the gear that you want for the D-Max AT35, the modified pick-up truck can come with auxiliary headlights, a nudge bar, a hood visor, a sports bar, mud flaps, side steps, and even window visors.
To keep passengers comfortable, Arctic Trucks added some additional amenities including bespoke leather upholstery with Arctic Truck-branded headrests, branded floor mats, and door sill plates. There's a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, an eight-speaker sound system with subwoofer, and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Other features available include a reverse camera, parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, automatic windshield wipers, emergency lane-keeping, and traffic sign recognition. It is still a truck you need to drive on the streets, after all.
The company did not mention what powers this beast of a pick-up. But more than likely, it uses the new 3.0-liter 4JJ3-TCX turbo-diesel that makes 190 PS with 450 Nm of torque. A choice between a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission is likely available for the D-Max AT35.
Interested in giving your D-Max the Arctic Truck treatment? At the moment, prices are not yet available; the pick-up you see here is still a pre-production model. But once the package becomes available to the market, expect to pay a pretty penny for the conversion. For reference, the AT35 package for the Toyota Hilux retails for an extra GBP 18,780 (or about PHP 1.24 million) plus VAT in the UK.
It's unlikely that the AT35 D-Max package will be offered in the Philippines as Arctic Trucks has no official presence in the country. But, this could inspire some owners to modify their D-Max to get a (somewhat) similar look.
