Isuzu

Isuzu UTE Australia launched in 2008 distributing the Isuzu D-Max Ute in 4x4 and 4x2 types. For years Isuzu utes were sold in Australia as Holden Rodeos, but after the deal between the two companies ended, Holden called their ute Colorado and Isuzu decided to use D-max instead (even though it owns the rights to the Rodeo name). Isuzu is owned by the Mitsubishi Corporation.

2017 Isuzu MU-X review

The Isuzu MU-X has become a surprise top-seller thanks to an unpretentious focus on back-to-basics toughness over fancy mod-cons. The MY17 update seeks to add some of the latter, without compromising the former, to match it with newer offerings.

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

Read the full review here  There are work utes – you know, the single-cab budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls...

2016 Isuzu MU-X Review

It's one of the best-selling 4x4 SUV's on the market, so what makes the Isuzu MU-X so appealing? There's a 3-litre 130kW/380Nm turbo diesel, 230mm of ground clearance and seven seats that give the MU-X a simple but capable go-anywhere ability.

2017 Isuzu D-Max Fire and Tipper - 2016 Paris Motor Show

We love a modified D-Max and these ones are no exception! The Fire and Rescue truck has a suspension lift and off-road tyre package while the cab-chassis is fitted with a two-way tip-tray.

Ute comparison: Ford Ranger v Holden Colorado v Isuzu D-Max v Mitsubishi Triton v Toyota HiLux v Volkswagen Amarok

There are work utes – you know, the single-cab, budget-focused models aimed at tradies specifically – and there are lifestyle utes, those that cost $60,000 to $70,000 that are more often seen with a dude in a suit driving them rather than a bloke in overalls. In fact, we drove those types of utes in our eight ute mega test a while ago, and we've even done an extra-cab lifestyle ute comparison, too...

Family 4x4 SUV Comparison: Ford Everest v Isuzu MU-X v Mitsubishi Pajero Sport v Toyota Fortuner v Nissan Patrol

The current-day SUV boom isn’t all about softer, more car-like high-riding options designed with little more than a school run in mind. For many buyers out there, a family 4x4 still needs to be a proper off-roader, a tough-as-nails workhorse that blends a modicum of urban comfort with proper skills off the beaten path and has the ability to confidently and consistently tow loads...

Single-cab ute comparison: Isuzu D-Max v Mazda BT-50 v Mitsubishi Triton v Nissan Navara v Toyota HiLux

Isuzu and Mazda ute deal clarified

The oft-discussed partnership between Isuzu Ute and Mazda, which will see the former provide utility vehicles to the latter, remains a subject of intense sensitivity and secrecy. However, we can clarify, for anyone not quite clear on the deal announced last July, that the deal is a supplier partnership rather than a joint-venture...

2015 Isuzu D-Max LS-U Hi-Ride (4x4) review

I've owned my D-Max for just over a year. Since buying it I've added a snorkel, bullbar, winch, rear recovery bar, oil catch can, and LED driving lights. I find it comfortable, quiet in the cabin, and economical. The transmission and clutch feel light and solid at the same time.  The two glove boxes are handy with an extra 12volt outlet...

2014 Isuzu D-Max LS-Terrain High-Ride (4x4) Review

The ride is very comfy and stable, plus with the rack-and-pinion steering, the turning circle is just like driving a car. With the standard tyres from the factory, I have only needed to replace them recently, after having traveled over 65,000km. The 5-speed automatic is excellent in towing...

2015 Isuzu MU-X LS-U (4x4) Review

Thought I'd put this review up, as the Mu-X was included in the recent comparison test vs Everest, Fortuner, Pajero Sport and Patrol. With a budget of up to $50k, I looked at these (albeit not the Patrol) plus second hand Prado and Pajero. I've had a Pajero for 5 years before this and it's served us well on camping trips and general dirt road touring...

2015 Isuzu MU-X Ls-t (4x4) Review

Very comfortable seating, I love the way the back seats fold down flat . The motor a bit noisy around town but not noticeable on long trips, the ride is quite firm. Handles well, with good pickup and ample power on the open road.Good aircon venting throughout the car. Mechanically very reliable no issues, my mechanic services several MU-X's never had a problem with them...
