Isuzu Rodeo Saves The (Wedding) Day

A cry of “Rodeo, Rodeo, wherefore art thou Rodeo” was entirely appropriate last weekend , when Isuzu came to the rescue of a damsel in distress trying to get to her own wedding in the snowbound Surrey countryside.

When a couple planned their winter wedding for the weekend before Christmas, little did they know it would only go ahead with the help of an Isuzu Rodeo.

Newly weds James and Gemma Gregory tied the knot on the 18th December at Frensham Heights in rural Rowledge, near Farnham, Surrey. Despite the area’s being beset by some of the worst snow in the South East, the wedding went ahead as planned thanks to the all-weather traction offered by the best man’s four-wheel drive Isuzu Rodeo.

“We pulled back the curtains on Saturday morning and were horrified to find that the weather forecast had been correct and the snow was coming down thick and fast,” said James, the groom from Farnborough, Hampshire.

“Thankfully the best man had come equipped with his unstoppable Isuzu Rodeo, which wasn’t going to let even the thickest layer of snow put a stop to our big day,” he added.

The double-cab Rodeo was put to good use throughout the weekend, not only transporting several guests from their accommodation to the wedding venue, but also stepping in to chauffeur the bride herself along roads covered with snow and ice to her perfect winter wedding, where she will exchange wedding rings.

With the help of its electronically selectable 4×4 powertrain and torque-laden 2.5 and 3.0-litre diesel engines, the Rodeos make light work of even the toughest road conditions. Priced from only £15,499 CVOTR in double-cab form, the Rodeo has once again proved itself to be a hard-working pick-up that won’t let you down whatever the weather.
