2017 Isuzu MU-X pricing and specs

The MY17 Isuzu MU-X update has arrived in Australia - before any other export market, and fewer than three months after the rugged seven-seat SUV's last running change, which brought a new Euro 5 diesel engine. The quickness of the local model launch reflects Australia's importance to Isuzu Ute...

Isuzu Ute Australia tops worldwide sales chart

Australia is now the world’s largest export market for Isuzu’s light commercial and SUV range, comprising the D-Max ute and MU-X wagon. Isuzu Ute Australia’s 23,377 sales last year — the eighth consecutive year in which it posted double-digit growth — allowed it to overtake Saudi Arabia, and best a further 120-odd nations...

An updated version of the Isuzu MU-X off-road wagon has been teased. Slated to be launched in March, probably in Thailand where it is manufactured, the MY17 update appears set to bring a new nose design, slicker rear LED tail-lights and a decidedly less utilitarian cabin treatment...

2017 Isuzu D-Max pricing and specs: Updated engine and more kit

It may not look very different, but the 2017 Isuzu D-Max ute has seen some significant changes under the skin. The most significant chance is a re-worked version of the brand’s 3.0-litre turbo diesel truck engine, which is now Euro 5 compliant. It retains the same 130kW of power but now has 430Nm of torque (from 2000-2200rpm)...

2016.5 Isuzu MU-X pricing and specs: D-Max twin gets engine upgrade, more features

The 2016.5 Isuzu MU-X has arrived in Australia, and, yes, '2016.5' is an unusual model year designation. The updated model doesn’t gain the same cosmetic adjustments as the Isuzu D-Max ute, but it does get the brand’s newly developed 3.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder engine. In fact, Australia is the first in the world to get an MU-X with the new drivetrain...
