Hot truck battles start early this year, and it's the updated-for-2023 Isuzu D-Max that kicks things off.

The entire portfolio benefits from a list of upgrades, headlined by an electronically actuated rear differential lock as standard on all 4x4 variants โ€“ yes, even in the single cabs. There's also visual updates across the board too, and the whole shebang can be read below.

Yet, all these things are great in isolation...but how do they perform in day-to-day driving, or with the added challenge of catering to first-time pick-up truck buyers? Our car market is diverse and it'd be a shame not to try what's beyond our comfort zone...

That's exactly what Nadia from Carlist seeks to explore in today's video, as she seeks to explore the highs and the lows of the recently-updated D-Max, from the perspective of someone entirely new to the world of pick-up trucks.
