Pick-ups that exceed the legal 2,040kg unladen weight classification for dual-purposevehicles are no longer covered by passenger car speed limits, meaning they should nottravel faster than 60mph on a dual carriageway and 50mph on a single carriageway -10mph less than the national speed limit for cars. The Isuzu D-Max Double Cab, whichhas an unladen weight of up to 1,959kg, offers all of the powers and capabilities of adual-purpose vehicle, without the restrictions.All of our pick-ups fall into the dual-purpose category, giving you, or your customers, an extensivechoice to find the perfect vehicle for whatever the purpose and requirement may be - such as aproper workhorse in the Utility range or a premium vehicle such as the Isuzu D-Max Blade.
THE FACTSAccording to the Road vehicles (Construction and Use)regulations, published by the DFT (Department forTransport), a dual-purpose vehicle is:‘a vehicle constructed or adapted for the carriageboth of passengers and of goods or burden of anydescription, being a vehicle with an unladen weightthat does not exceed 2,040kg’.Most Double Cab pick-ups fall into the dual-purposevehicle group but a number of our competitors exceedthe maximum weight capacity, and many customershave not been made aware of these restrictionswhen purchasing a pick-up.More information can be found on the following websites:www.gov.uk/speed-limits and www.pickupand4x4.co.uk/know-your-limits
