The Isuzu deal comes as Ford introduces two special editions of the Ranger pick-up -- one to appeal to mining companies and contractors and a more affordable XLS double cab at $44,490 drive-away.
But the brands doing the sharpest deals are Nissan and Mitsubishi, both of which are clearing old stock to make way for the first new models in 10 years, either late this year or early next.
As the oldest trucks on the market, the prices of Nissan and Mitsubishi utes are reaching new lows.
The Triton GLX Plus is $31,990 drive-away while the luxury GLX-R is $38,990 drive-away, a saving of more than $12,000 off the launch price almost a decade ago.
The Nissan Navara ST crew cab is also $38,990 drive-away but be sure to haggle as this is an advertised price only.
The Holden Colorado "Storm" edition has $2000 worth of extra kit at no extra charge. Don't be afraid to shop around on these deals, too, as Holden dealers are working hard to shift more metal.
The ute discounts may be emerging early but the deals will only get better as June 30 approaches, say industry insiders.
