Isuzu D-Max dimensions

The Isuzu D-Max pickup comes in three bodystyles – single cab, extended cab and double cab. So whether you're looking for a no-nonsense working truck, a plush lifestyle model or something inbetween, there's a D-Max with the load capacity to suit you.

On this page we list the full exterior and load area dimensions for all versions, as well as details of payload ratings and towing capacity.

For info about driving impressions, engine details and fuel economy, see our main Isuzu D-Max review page.

Isuzu D-Max capacity & size

4 out of 5 4.0

If you're looking for a D-Max with the largest possibly load area you'll be wanting a single cab model, which has seats for just people and only comes in the entry-level Utility specification.

If carrying passengers is more important you'll do best with a double cab instead, which comes with four full doors and five seats. This bodystyle is available on every trim level from Utility right through to range-topping Blade; in fact, most of the upmarket trim levels only come as a double cab.

In between the two sits the extended cab. This features a smaller cab but still manages to cram in a rear seat - though this is better suited to occasional use than long journeys - while the load area length splits the difference between the other two. The D-Max extended cab is available in Utility and Yukon spec.

Isuzu D-Max load bed area accessories

Isuzu offers a large selection of load options and accessories, including bed liners (which will reduce the ultimate dimensions slightly), lockable load covers in vinyl and aluminium, roof racks, hardtops, sports bars and tow hooks.

You'll note that the Utility models (including the Eiger double cab) are lower than the majority of the premium model range - this is due to being fitted with more heavy duty suspension.

The rear-wheel drive (RWD) single cab also features narrower bodywork than every other variant, all of which are four-wheel drive (4WD); all single cab models have a longer rear overhang (the area of bodywork beyond the rear wheels). This helps give them an even larger load area, but will make them slightly less nimble off-road.

Isuzu D-Max off-road data:

  • Approach angle: 30 degrees (all models)
  • Breakover / ramp angle: 22 degrees (all models)
  • Departure angle: 22 degrees (Utility and Eiger) / 23 degrees (Yukon, Utah and Blade)
  • Tilt angle: 49 degrees (all models except 4x2 RWD single cab)
  • Wading depth: 400mm (RWD 4x2 single cab) / 600mm (all other models)
  • Ground clearance (at rear axle): 225mm (Utility and Eiger) / 235mm (Yukon, Utah and Blade)
  • Turning circle: 11.8m (RWD 4x2 single cab) / 12.2m (all other models)

Isuzu doesn't routinely quote a figure for the width between the wheel arches, but we've checked and been told that it's typically 1,020mm when a load liner is fitted.

Isuzu D-Max payload, weight & towing

4.5 out of 5 4.5

The Isuzu D-Max has one of the best sets of payload ratings of any pickup sold in the UK - and almost every variant is able to tow 3.5-tonnes (3,500kg). If it's a workhorse you're after, step this way.

Isuzu D-Max payload, kerb weight and GVW

Here's the complete kerb weight, payload ratings and gross vehicle weight (GVW - the maximum allowed combined weight of vehicle and everything on board) for the entire Isuzu D-Max range.

D-Max model Kerb weight Gross vehicle weight Max payload
Utility RWD single cab 1,718kg 3,000kg 1,282kg
Utility 4WD single cab 1,854kg 3,050kg 1,196kg
Utility extended cab  1,909kg 3,050kg 1,141kg
Utility double cab 1,934kg 3,050kg 1,116kg
Eiger double cab 1,914kg 3,050kg 1,136kg
Yukon extended cab 1,909kg 3,050kg 1,141kg
Yukon double cab 1,934kg 3,050kg 1,116kg
Utah double cab 1,944kg 3,050kg 1,106kg
Blade double cab 1,934kg 3,050kg 1,116kg


All figures above for manual gearbox models. Models fitted with the six-speed automatic (optional on the Yukon, Utah and Blade double cabs) weigh 5kg more than the manual, which means they have a 5kg lower payload rating.

Wondering how the Eiger double cab weighs less than the Utility double cab? That's down to the Utility model's steel wheels; the alloy wheels fitted to the Eiger are lighter.

Note that these figures are for the very latest 1.9-litre version (as of writing in February 2019); this means most double cab models are able to carry arond 10kg more than the original 1.9-litre specification introduced in 2017.

Older D-Max's powered by the 2.5-litre engine are heavier still and have correspondingly lower payload ratings.

Isuzu D-Max towing capacity

The D-Max is an excellent choice for towing, especially since the late 2018 update introduced standard-fit Trailer Sway Control on all four-wheel drive models as an active safety aid.

Better still, all versions of the D-Max except for the entry-level Utility single cab without four-wheel drive have a maximum braked towing rating of 3,500kg (3.5 tonnes).

The single cab in question tows up to 2,500kg (2.5 tonnes).

All models have an unbraked towing capacity of 750kg.
