10 Reasons Why You Need to Upgrade Your Truck
We’ve all been there, clinging onto something that’s past it’s best. It could be your favourite shirt covered in stains but “it’s still good”, or your dinky bar fridge that doesn’t quite keep the beers cold anymore. It could even be your truck, old reliable that you’ve had for years and has never let you down. So why should you bother upgrading?
- Updated safety features
I know your current truck is pretty brilliant, comes complete with a worn steering wheel and an almost functioning air conditioner. But what safety features does it have? While a seatbelt of course saves lives, newer trucks on the road come complete with a huge amount of safety features to ensure that at the end of the day, you can make it home safe and sound. Features such as reverse cameras, SRS dual airbags, ABS, ASR and cruise control are now more affordable than you think! You can’t put a price on safety and peace of mind, but if you could it would be more affordable than ever before.
- Old is good, but sometimes new can be better
I know what you’re thinking, there’s nothing wrong with my truck! She may be old but she still has a lot of life left in her. I hear what you’re saying, but wouldn’t you love to upgrade to a newer model? Not only is it packed with safety features, it also has air-conditioning, and seats that won’t make you ache on those long haul drives.
- Cost of running old vs new
The words you don’t want to hear, but need to be said. Your old truck is costing you too much. From the shoddy fuel economy, to the unexpected breakdowns, every dollar adds up. With a new truck, you can opt to have a service plan so you know exactly what each service is going to cost you. Which means no nasty surprises!
- More space (if you’re calling your ute a truck)
If you’re one of those tradesmen who drives around in a ute and calls it a truck, we’ve got some news for you. Now you can drive an actual truck (which means a higher payload and towing capacity) all while on your car license! Make the switch to a truck to run your business more efficiently, and save in the long run. Plus, you’ll be able to brag that you drive an actual truck! How good is that?
- Isuzu Care
When you purchase a new Isuzu truck, it comes with a wonderful support system called Isuzu Care. To us, reliability is everything – and we mean it! Isuzu Care is the most comprehensive truck customer care programme ever seen in the market. It’s leading the way in setting new industry standards in the range of support services it offers Isuzu customers. Isuzu Care have an in-house Customer Care Centre team of specialists who will ensure owning an Isuzu Truck is a positive experience for you.
- New and Shiny
Here me out on this one, a new truck means a shiny truck. And how good does a shiny truck look? I know your old truck is probably worn down, and doesn’t have that same gleam it used to. Well you can bring the spark back with an upgrade to a new truck! Sit and stare at your truck all day to marvel at the shine, or go out and get a bit of dirt on her (because the only think better than a shiny truck is a shiny truck that’s been covered in dirt).
- Write it off on Tax

- While you can (use your current truck as a trade in)

- If you love something let it go
You know that saying, if you love something let it go? It might be time to follow this advice. While your heart might belong to your truck, you can’t deny that an upgrade is the right thing to do, for both of you. You’ll be saving money and time, and your truck will rest assured that it has completed a job well done and can retire with a little dignity (i.e. not broken down on the back of a tow truck).

The most important reason for upgrading: you deserve the best. The best in technology, safety, comfort and reliability. You deserve an Isuzu, number one for over 30 years for a reason. Speak to the team at Major Motors about how we can get you into your own Isuzu truck today.
