DT Dobie to offer range of two and four wheel drive transporter pick-ups

Vehicle distributor DT Dobie will now offer a range of 2 and 4 wheel drive single and double cab transporter pick-ups the motor company has confirmed.

These long wheel base vehicles are equipped with reinforced suspensions for rough road use and have an aluminium underside guard for engines and transmissions. The Transporter pick-ups are among the range of 17 different Volkswagen models available from DT Dobie. All VWs sold by the company have service intervals of 7500 kilometers and carry a 2-year unlimited mileage warranties.

These are issued by DT Dobie which is the only organization in Kenya authorized to issue Volkswagen warranties. According to the distributor, a two-litre turbo diesel engine mated with a 6 speed manual gearbox gives owners good fuel consumption combined with the capability of carrying loads of up to 1,224 kilos over long distances and hilly terrain. In addition to the tailgate the sides of the pick-up are hinged to provide quick loading for goods, building materials and machinery. This feature has special appeal for construction companies, farmers and transporters making deliveries to shops and warehouses.

“The comfortable cabin of both the single and double cab pick-ups has two seats for passengers located beside the driver. The double cab also features a back seat for three passengers. The generous seating space means that workers can be carried safely instead of riding on the back of the pick-up,” the company said in a statement.

The Volkswagen pick-ups are loaded with safety features including front and rear ventilated disc brakes with ABS (anti-locking brake system) and EBD (electronic brake force distribution). There is also an electronic stability program (ESP) with brake assist, driver’s airbag and hill hold control.
