Isuzu has put 200 of its dealers through a training programme covering topics crucial to fleet buyers, such as digital tachometers, how to deal with local authorities and contract hire.
Isuzu, which told BusinessCar of its plans at the recent British motor show, does not have a specific fleet team and all vehicle sales are classed as retail whether they are to businesses or not.
Meanwhile, the Rodeo, the Japanese company's only current vehicle, has been boosted by the addition of a new 3.0-litre engine, which made its debut at the recent British motor show.
On sale for around £23k, the 163PS engine will only be available on the top-of-the-range Denver Max LE trim. CO2 emissions are recorded as 222g/km and 237g/km for the manual and automatic versions respectively.
Also appearing at the motor show was a facelifted version of a front-wheel drive single cab Rodeo. Emissions, at 197g/km, are 18g/km better than the old version, and the top speed has been raised by 16mph to 109mph.
The single cab Rodeo is available now and will be priced at £11,749.
