From April 1 2022, due to various market driven factors including but not limited to increasing production related costs, and international and domestic transport and logistics costs, Isuzu UTE Australia (IUA) will introduce a price adjustment for the 2022 (22MY) D-MAX and MU-X range; with the RRP increasing by $1,000 to $1,600, dependent on model variant.
Drive-away pricing on the D-MAX SX Single Cab Chassis 1.9-Litre Manual 4x2, D-MAX X-TERRAIN 4x4, and MU-X LS-T 4x4 are set to increase by $2,000.
All confirmed orders logged with an authorised Isuzu UTE Dealer are automatically covered by a price protection guarantee if the vehicle was ordered, signed and dated before the 31st March 2022.
"The constantly-shifting global situation affecting production, transport and logistics costs has driven the need to increase pricing across the 22MY D-MAX and MU-X range—but this decision was not taken lightly with all options deeply considered,” said Isuzu UTE Australia’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Koichiro Yoshida.
"Regardless of an order status—whether it be in transit or planned for production—IUA guarantees the price protection on all confirmed orders taken before the end of March."
Demand for both the popular Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X remains at an all-time high, with the entire Isuzu UTE Dealer Network committed to delivering customer orders as quickly as possible.
“We are eternally grateful for everyone's patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time of supply shortages, and we are working closely with our global production team to secure the maximum number of vehicles for our local Australian customers."
In their respective classes, both the D-MAX and MU-X have earned a reputation for standardising the latest in features and safety technology, with IUA committed to continuing to supply the D-MAX and MU-X to customers as per the original specifications.
"IUA remains committed to delivering our vehicles completed, without compromise and without taking any shortcuts; a commitment to our customers who have expectations which we will always strive to meet and exceed."
