The rugged Isuzu MU-X (which oddly stands for Mysterious Utility – eXtreme) is a 4x4 wagon based on the company's only other passenger vehicle, the D-Max ute.
The MU-X – like its key competitors, the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Everest – eschew leaf springs at the rear in favour of softer coils, but its otherwise mechanically identical to its ute brethren. Available in a rear- or four-wheel drive layout in the $43,900 MU-X LS-M (4x2) and $57,400 MU-X LS-T (4x4) models respectively, the five seat wagon also offers a third row of seats, allowing a total of seven people to ride aboard. A five-speed automatic transmission backs its torquey 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, and it can tow up to 3000kg of braked trailer behind it.
This vehicle is also known as Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet D-Max, Chevrolet LUV D-Max, Holden Colorado, Holden Rodeo, Isuzu KB, Isuzu LB, Isuzu Rodeo, Chevrolet T Series, GMC Canyon.
