2020 Isuzu MU-X LS-T tow review

The Isuzu MU-X might be an old warrior now, and it might not be as up to date as the competition, but that doesn't stop people thinking of it as a cost-effective towing solution.

Isuzu D-Max production ramps up again after temporary shutdown

Production of the new Isuzu D-Max is ramping back up again after a parts shortage temporarily interrupted supply of Australian models. Earlier this month, Isuzu Ute Australia issued an urgent bulletin to dealers and wrote to customers to apologise for an unexpected delay in production at its Thailand factory due to a critical component not being available out of Europe...

Isuzu D-Max to stop production for three months, Mazda BT-50 ok for now

The waiting time for a new Isuzu D-Max ute is about to get longer, with production “suspended” for the next three months after a parts supplier was shut down in Europe due to COVID-19 – and its twin under the skin, the Mazda BT-50, is also likely to be affected. Although the Isuzu D-Max and Mazda BT-50 utes are made on the same production line in Thailand, parts for the jointly-developed vehicles are sourced globally...

The Isuzu MU-X tech coming to the Isuzu D-Max

The 2021 Isuzu D-Max ute has only just gone on sale in Australia, but there are already some clear signs of the extra technology coming to next model update. The new-generation Isuzu MU-X four-wheel-drive wagon – which was unveiled in Thailand today ahead of its Australian showroom arrival this time next year – had a host of extra features likely to make it onto future editions of the Isuzu D-Max ute...

2021 Isuzu MU-X revealed, due in Australia next year

2017 Isuzu MU-X LS-U (4x4) review

Buying the Isuzu MU-X has been the best decision ever. We upgraded from a 2007 Honda CR-V. Being a diesel mechanic and previously working for an Isuzu ute dealership in a coastal town, I always wanted to buy one. The main reason for buying the Isuzu MU-X was the known reliability of the 3.0-litre TD, and the vehicle is practical from front to back...

2014 Isuzu D-Max LS-M Hi-Ride (4x4) review

It was purchased in February 2015. The only warranty problem was a leaking rear brake light seal into the cabin behind the rear seat. Excellent sales but mediocre service department at the place it was purchased from. I changed dealerships after 70,000km and the warranty was accepted and repaired with no fuss...

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...
