Japanese car makers seem to have perfected the formula for pickup trucks. Indeed the Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi L200 and Nissan Navara are all great examples that are right at the top of the pile. One model that doesn’t garner as much attention, but is still as good as (if not better than) this ‘holy trinity’, is the Isuzu Rodeo.
The Rodeo has been around since 2002, and while several generations have followed, they all look hardy and like they mean business. You don’t buy a pickup and then expect to blend into the crowd, and the Isuzu certainly isn’t a wall flower. The modern Denver range in particular sums this up perfectly both inside and out; imposing yet comfortable, the Rodeo is an excellent commercial vehicle.
While the Rodeo isn’t that big in the cab itself, there’s a monstrous load bed at the rear which can carry over 1000 kilos of weight. This means you can transport pretty much anything, from heavy duty work supplies during the week to an almighty amount of shopping at weekends. You can tick practicality of the list well and truly.
For a big boy, the ride isn’t too bad, but don’t expect to go around corners at top speed. There’s a good amount of power too from some big engines which mean towing trailers or carrying bulky objects isn’t a problem. You’ll be able to dominate all types of terrain and Isuzu can take pretty much anything that’s thrown at it and still shrug it off. All in all, it really does provide food for thought in the brutal, hardcore and fierce niche that is pickup trucks.
There’s every chance to find a bargain second hand Isuzu Rodeo at Motors.co.uk as the selection of used cars for sale is incredibly wide ranging and diverse. You’ll be able to drive away in high quality auto for a fraction of the cost and ultimately get excellent value for money. For big cars like the Rodeo, saving monster money is the name of the game.
So if you’re looking for a hardy pickup truck that’s as stylish as it is durable, the Isuzu Rodeo is definitely one of the best to check out. It’s practical, it looks good and has excellent performance for such a big car. Sometimes looking beyond the obvious has its rewards!
