Isuzu UTE are proud to partner with a diverse range of impactful ambassadors – all of which live the ‘Go Your Own Way’ message. Each of our partners have a unique and empowering story to tell.
THE ISUZU UTE A-LEAGUE
Isuzu UTE Australia (IUA) is proud to partner with the A-Leagues, the representative body of professional football in Australia that comprises men's, women's, youth and e-sports competitions. Over the course of the three-year partnership, IUA will be the Naming Rights Partner of the A-Leagues' men’s competition and will be supporting the A-Leagues to bring football to all Australians with a fleet of vehicles across the A-Leagues, the Clubs and Players. Together, the A-Leagues and IUA look to inspire everyone to play and go their own way, on and off the pitch—driving the values of adventure, reliability and performance shared by Football, Ute, and SUV fans right across the country.
Surf Life Saving Australia
In 2021, Isuzu UTE Australia are taking safety to a whole new level by partnering with Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) as a Major Partner and their Official Automotive Supplier. IUA’s commitment to this iconic Australian-body will see the Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X's support the 174,000 volunteer members and 315 clubs nationwide. Revered as the largest volunteer movement of its kind in the world, this 114 year-old, not-for-profit organisation are known to perform over 10,000 rescues annually—all part of their commitment to keeping our beaches safe.
DANIEL MORCOMBE FOUNDATION
The Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc was established in 2005 as a result of the extraordinary community support shown to the Morcombe family following the abduction and suspected murder of 13 year old Daniel Morcombe on the Sunshine Coast, December 2003.
The Foundation’s motto is “Protection, Safety and Opportunity for our children,” which is enforced by Bruce and Denise Morcombe’s commitment to training and education of school age children.
Bruce and Denise Morcombe’s ‘My Isuzu Story’ recounts how they are committed to continuing to drive their safety message—driving thousands of kilometres each year in their Daniel Morcombe Foundation-branded Isuzu D-MAX—visiting schools to spread their message of child safety.
Isuzu UTE is proud to partner with the Daniel Morcombe Foundation by providing a vehicle that allows Bruce and Denise to deliver presentations to schools across Queensland, implementing the Daniel Morcombe Child Safety curriculum developed in conjunction with the Department of Education, Training and Employment.

Indigenous Literacy Foundation
Established in 2011, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation’s (ILF) purpose is to invest in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities to provide the tools and resources they need to shape the direction of their children’s literacy future.
As a Community-led charity, ILF responds to requests from remote Communities for culturally relevant books, including early learning board books, resources, and programs to support Communities to create and publish their stories in languages of their choice.
To date, they have gifted over half a million books to over 400 communities (featuring at least 40% by Indigenous authors and illustrators), published 143 books reflecting 26 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, and supported 83 remote playgroups with early literacy books and learning resources.
Isuzu UTE Australia is proud to be supporting ILF with an Isuzu D-MAX 4x4 – offering on-the-ground support to navigate remote areas in the Northern Territory to deliver these vital literacy programs and learning resources.
HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Revered as one of Australia's favourite fishing shows, over the years Hook, Line and Sinker has travelled nationwide, towing their impressive fishing boats to some of Australia's most renowned fishing destinations with their trusted Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X.

For many years, he has made his passion for fishing a career, capitalising on every opportunity to fish with some of the best guides in some of the most iconic fishing locations around the world.
Since 2016, IUA has teamed up with Mark and provided him with a vehicle, which features prodigiously on his show, Mark Berg’s Fishing Addiction, which takes viewers to all ends of Australia in pursuit of that ‘fish of a lifetime’!

If you have seen Isuzu UTE Australia’s launch video of the third-generation Isuzu D-MAX, there is a fair chance you would recognise the work of Australian TV personality, Chris Parsons. After becoming a household name on Australian television screens on shows like WEEKENDER on Channel 7, Chris has since become an ambassador for IUA—advocating the ‘Go Your Own Way’ lifestyle alongside his family.
A proud driver of an Isuzu D-MAX LS-M, Chris and his family are very much accustomed to the adventurous lifestyle, sharing their stories and encouraging others to do the same.
Ahead of the second-generation Isuzu MU-X Launch, Isuzu UTE Australia teamed up with renowned Australian TV personality, Liz Cantor, to help bring the ‘Extraordinary’ exhibition to life. First making waves in Australia as a professional surfer, Liz’s TV career took off shortly after—when she made a name for herself on reality television before finding her home on Channel Seven presenting the weather for 7 News and on popular lifestyle shows, Creek to Coast and WEEKENDER, among other things.
Outside of work, Liz has a knack for living the ‘Go Your Own Way’ lifestyle—actively engaging her passions in surfing, horse riding and snow skiing. Now that she is behind the wheel of an Isuzu MU-X LS-T, those adventures will not be slowing any time soon—taking full advantage of the MU-X’s uncompromised capabilities to accompany her and her family on weekend escapades.
