Last week Isuzu has Unveiled the all-new Isuzu MU-X SUV with a traditional body-on-frame design. The new SUV is designed to target Asia, Australia, and South Africa markets. The Isuzu MU-X is an SUV based on the D-Max pickup which is also popular in all these markets.
In terms of design the new Isuzu MU-X is has a better-improved design as some say that it is following the design language from the all-new Mazda BT-50. It also looks a lot modern compared to its predecessor that was in the market for about seven years.
Headlights, taillights, and bumpers are all redesigned to give a more dynamic look to MU-X. Inside the cabin, the 2021 Isuzu MU-X looks almost identical to the D-Max pickup but it offers more standard equipment like an electronic parking brake, power tailgate, or ambient lighting. It is also roomier than before and the cabin has enough space to carry seven passengers in three practical rows.
Under the hood, Isuzu MU-X comes standard with a 1.9-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel engine with 148 hp and 350 nm of torque. This engine can be connected to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission but it is not available with any sort of four-wheel drive system.
Buyers who are interested in 4WD should go for a higher grade called AWD MU-X that has a 3.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel with 187 hp and 450 nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive system.
