Isuzu MU-X update teased

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...

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.
