ISUZU Welcomes RVT to UK Dealer Network

Agricultural workers, urban tradespeople and recreational users of pick-ups in and around Shropshire can now benefit from even greater access to Isuzu’s range of rugged and refined vehicles following the appointment of Rea Valley Tractors, as an official sales, aftersales and service dealer.

Rea Valley Tractors are an agricultural dealership based in Derbyshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Mid Wales. Based from its Shrewsbury depot customers will now be able to test drive the highly-acclaimed Isuzu D-Max, as well as benefit from its large parts and servicing facilities.

“The addition of the Isuzu brand to our existing portfolio of high class manufacturers is an excellent fit with our existing business and we look forward to welcoming old and new customers to our depot to see for themselves this exciting product range. ” commented Steve Potter, Managing Director at Rea Valley Tractors. “At RVT we challenge ourselves to provide the best possible customer experience and the addition of the Isuzu brand, which is very much focused on the agricultural industry, can only help us to achieve our aims.”

William Brown, General Manager of Isuzu UK, said: “We’re delighted to have Rea Valley Tractors as part of the Isuzu network. They join at an exciting time for Isuzu with the recent launch of the new generation Isuzu D-Max which we believe will appeal to a broad range of buyers who visit the showroom in Shrewsbury”

D-Max has been extensively overhauled with the biggest changes under the bonnet. A brand new 1.9 litre turbo diesel engine has been fitted, which produces 164 PS and 360Nm of torque. The engine builds upon D-Max’s workhorse character and retains the 3.5 tonne towing capacity and 1 tonne payload whilst providing a quieter, more refined and economical driving experience.  Another key benefit is that the new engine meets Euro 6 standards without the need for addition of AdBlue.

The range line up from the much-loved D-Max is retained; Utility, Eiger, Yukon, Utah and Blade with a range of single, extended and double cab variants available. The range is priced from £15,749 CVOTR for the Utility model up to £27,999 CVOTR for the range-topping Blade model.

The D-Max comes with a five-year / 125,000-mile warranty, and was the first pick-up in the UK to be offered with such a comprehensive peace-of-mind package.  Running costs are kept down by 12,000-mile or 24-month service intervals, five years’ recovery and European cover, a three-year paint warranty, and a six-year anti-corrosion warranty.

Rea Valley Tractors is located at Seven Acres, Newport Road, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY4 4RR, and is open from 8am-5pm Monday to Friday. For more information please contact Tim Roberts, RVT Isuzu Brand Specialist on 01743 289104.
