What is the Isuzu D-Max Huntsman Accessory Pack?

As the name suggests, the Huntsman pack is designed to turn Isuzu’s pickup into a hunt support vehicle, making ideal for fans of shooting and huniting.

Available exclusively on the mid-spec D-Max Utah, its main component is a lockable aluminium drawer system that fits into the bottom of the load bed, which serves as secure, out of sight storage for firearms while leaving space for dog boxes and other equipment above.

However, that’s far from all you get for the money.

What else is included and how much does it cost?

The basic Huntsman Pack costs £5,995 plus VAT on top of the £25,149 (ex-VAT but on the road) for the D-Max Utah itself – a total of £31,144 plus VAT.

This gives you all of the following:

  • Aluminium drawer system and flap
  • Aeroklas Commercial Roof Canopy – with roof rails and vent
  • Bed liner
  • Aluminium underside protection, including for the rear differential
  • Black roof rails, side bars and steps
  • De-chromed exterior
  • Black 18-inch alloy wheels with all-terrain tyres
  • Tailgate damper
  • Premium protective mat set for the interior
  • Towbar rated to the full 3.5-tonne towing capacity, plus 13-pin electrics

The tow bar is high-mounted to give maximum off-road clearance, while the de-chromed exterior is intended to help the D-Max Huntsman ‘blend into the background’

Ditto the Tundra Green (pictured), Cosmic Black and Obsidian Grey paint options.

What is the Isuzu D-Max Huntsman Plus Pack?

The Huntsman Plus Pack includes all of the above but also adds uprated off-road suspension supplied by specialists Pedders (as also used by Van-Sport on the MS-RT, M-Sport and VR46 Ford Rangers).

Further options include a new Huntsman leather interior and a choice of specific dog boxes.
