FINALLY, a pick-up truck which is capable of traversing the icy plains of the Arctic Circle.
It’s even Bluetooth-connected so you can play your favourite Katy Perry songs while avoiding hungry polar bears.
The Arctic’s £31,500 and may not seem as great value as the SsangYong Musso but, trust me, it is.
You only have to stand next to it to realise why – it’s vast. This thing is a hulking monster of a machine.
Key facts: ISUZU D-MAX ARCTIC
Engine: 2.5 litre diesel turbo
0-62mph: 15 seconds (estimated)
Top speed: 112 mph (estimated)
Length: 5.2 metres
When it arrived at my house to be reviewed, for a split second I wondered if I needed a heavy goods licence to drive it.
So while it is a lot of money, you’re getting what is possibly the most capable off-roading pick-up on the UK market today.

That said, size is a problem on small roads.
Even though other cars run for the hills when they see you coming, pulling over is a pain, and woe betide you meet anything of equal size head-on.
This beast is the result of Isuzu handing over the capable D-Max to Scandinavian truck manufacturer Arctic.
35in tyres are capable of taking on terrain which simply doesn’t exist in Britain
It’s five inches higher than the standard version, sitting on monstrous 35in tyres which are capable of taking on terrain which simply doesn’t exist in Britain.
If you want the toughest, biggest and all-round most bad-ass pick-up on the market, this is the one (and it would be the perfect vehicle to take the kids to the North Pole to see Santa).
