New Isuzu Rodeo at Royal Welsh Show

20th July 2007 Print
Isuzu has joined forces with local dealers to promote the new Isuzu Rodeo commonrail diesel pickup at the Royal Welsh Show on July 23-26, 2007.

The Royal Welsh Show sees the new 2007 Rodeo range for the first time. Its class leading 3000kg towing capacity, economy and emissions are of great interest to Welsh farming. It is also the only pickup to accept the Transport Office’s new mandatory Digital Tachograph system.

As well as exhibiting at the show, (Stand No.621) Isuzu will be sponsoring the Bolddog Freestyle Motor Cycle Team, an extreme sports motor cycle display unit, whose members were made ‘quietly’ famous in Tomb Raider 2, Thunderbirds and Johnny English.

Isuzu (UK) is also providing six courtesy vehicles for use in the main ring parade to transport the winning cloven-hoofed animals in society trailers. The new Rodeo Denver was chosen to participate in the parade due to its class leading 3000kg towing ability.

The Show is billed as one of the largest of its kind in Europe attracting more than 200,000 visitors over the four-day period, where staff will be on hand to discuss the whole range of Isuzu models and all their class winning attributes.

Launched in April, the new 2.5 litre commonrail Rodeo Denver, available in six distinctive colours, is available at just £13,999 (on-the-road excluding VAT).

Respected as one of the most car-like and durable commercial pick ups on the market, the new 2.5 Rodeo Denver is already selling strongly.

Standard equipment on the new Rodeo Denver includes the new 136 PS commonrail diesel unit with 217 lb ft of torque, new alloy wheels, air-conditioning, leather steering wheel, Pioneer CD/Tuner/MP3 Player, tinted electric windows, ABS with EBD, rear step and three-point seatbelts for all five occupants.

Kenyon Neads, Isuzu Brand Manager, said: “The Rodeo has always been particularly popular with the farming community because of its reliability and class leading towing capacity. But the recently launched 2007 Rodeo has already won its ‘spurs’ in the agricultural industry in the recent floods, its new torquey engine and big pulling power proving indispensable in the harsh conditions. We expect lots of interest.”
