So we got a 2017 Isuzu D-Max Arctic Trucks AT35
Arctic Trucks, the offroad-tuning company best known for building street-legal monster-truckish 4x4s in Iceland and made popular by Top Gear, has had a base in the UAE for the better part of a decade now, and most visible as Toyota’s locally-modified Xtreme range of 4x4s. Now there is a proper Arctic Trucks-branded Isuzu D-Max available, and we got to take one for a spin.
First off, this truck looks absolutely mean. It turns heads and doesn’t need to be as big as a Raptor to do it.
Inside, it is as basic as a work-truck, but still has a touchscreen head unit with rear camera and power accessories, so it’s no worse-equipped than our basic Toyota FJ Cruiser 6M/T.
With a nonchalant turbodiesel engine and manageable size, it’s pretty straightforward to drive around town. Now we have to take it offroad. More on that in the full review.
