The Isuzu D-Max 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.

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.
Isuzu D-Max exterior dimensions
These are the full exterior dimensions details of the D-Max pickup (if viewing on a phone you may need to turn the screen sideways to see the whole table):
|Single cab RWD||Single cab 4WD||Extended cab utility||Extended cab premium||Double cab utility||Double cab premium|
|Trim level options||Utility||Utility||Utility||Yukon||Utility and Eiger||Yukon, Utah and Blade|
|Width without door mirrors (mm)||1,775||1,860||1,860
|Track width (mm)
|Front overhang (mm)
|Rear overhang (mm)
|Rear axle height (mm)
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.

- Approach angle: 30 degrees (all models)
- Breakover / ramp angle: 22 degrees (all models)

Table comparing load space dimensions for different body variants of the Isuzu D-Max:
|Single cab||Extended cab||Double cab|
|Maximum load length (mm)||2,305||1,795||1,485|
|Maximum load width (mm)||1,570||1,530||1,530|

|Side wall height / load area depth (mm)||440||465||465|
*with load liner fitted
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.
