Cars you didn't know you want: 1997 Isuzu VehiCross

The Isuzu VehiCross looks like it’s been lifted straight out of the pages of a Japanese comic book. There’s a fantastical quality to its design, far ahead of its time. It wouldn’t look too out of place in new car showrooms today but when you consider it was launched way back in 1997, its futuristic design becomes all the more remarkable...

2021 Isuzu D-Max LS-M review

Although the X-Terrain has the accolades, there is plenty going for this lower-middle specification D-Max. However, there is one big problem...

Loadspace is arguably the most crucial part of a ute’s definition. While their base function is still the same, there are a lot of different feature these days that can set them apart. From bare bones, all the way to electric roller covers, let's see what's available to you.

2021 4x4 Ute Off-road mega test

You can see it in the traffic. Four-wheel-drive utes are more popular than ever, and account for almost one in five (17.5 per cent) of all new vehicle sales in Australia based on sales data from January to April 2021. Indeed, between the Ford Ranger and Toyota HiLux, four-wheel-drive double cab utes have been the top-selling vehicles outright for the past five years in a row, and are well on the way to notching up a sixth...

The 2022 Isuzu MU-X is due in showrooms next month and the first all-new model in eight years has had a major makeover. However as with all new cars, there is always room for improvement to keep pace with the competition. Here is our wish list for the first update, or as running changes...

Isuzu D-Max ute and MU-X 4WD could get hybrid option, more power

Isuzu Ute Australia says it is considering a more powerful Isuzu D-Max ute and Isuzu MU-X four-wheel-drive – as well as the option of hybrid technology in the future. Executives for the company said while it was too soon to disclose any technical details or likely arrival timing, they indicated Isuzu is investigating the addition of a more powerful flagship in the D-Max ute range – and hybrid tech for the MU-X four-wheel-drive...

2022 Isuzu MU-X price and specs: Drive-away prices rise by between $9000 and $15,000

Drive-away prices for the 2022 Isuzu MU-X are poised to rise by between $9000 and $15,000, marking the single biggest round of price increases in the 10-year history of the brand in Australia. While recommended retail prices have risen by between $3700 and $10,800 from a year ago – and by between $2700 and $9800 in the lead-up to the new model arriving – these prices are before on-road costs are calculated, which typically add at least $3000 in stamp duty, registration, and dealer delivery fees...

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...
