Notable hardware enhancements include the addition of Fox shocks and 17x10-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch Nokian Rotiiva All-Terrain tyres. This combination not only gives the AT35 a flat and planted stance, but it lifts ride height by 125mm over the standard 4x4 D-Max.
A host of optional extras can be acquired to jazz up your rig, including the Arctic Trucks Truxedo (increased security in the tray), Arctic Trucks Sports Bar, a 27-LED square work light, skid plates and an ARB tyre inflator with inline gauge.
The AT35 retains the D-Max’s chassis, engine and transmissions. While its towing (3500kg) and payload (1000kg) capacities will also remain the same.
UK-spec D-Maxes run a 2.5-litre turbo-diesel that delivers 120kW and 400Nm, and this remains unchanged. This is mated to Isuzu’s six-speed manual or five-speed auto (double-cab only) transmissions. Its two-, four- and low-ratio four-wheel drive modes make sure the AT35 can crawl over the trickiest topography.
It will be available in double-cab or extended-cab configurations.
Despite developing and manufacturing off-road capable rigs for more than 25 years, the AT35 is the first Arctic Truck pick-up in the UK that can be ordered directly through the dealer network.
It’s expected to hit UK showrooms by late May this year. However, don’t get your hopes up for a local launch. Isuzu Ute Australia has no immediate plans to release the AT35.
