Isuzu MU-X 2017

The 2017 Isuzu MU-X range of configurations is currently priced from $27,950. Our most recent review of the 2017 Isuzu MU-X resulted in a score of 7.4 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Deputy Editor James Cleary had this to say at the time: The Isuzu MU-X is well-equipped, competent and nicely screwed together. Not as bold or plush as some of its competitors, the top-spec LS-T is all the money, but will appeal to traditional, no-nonsense buyers who prefer an honest, hard worker over a tricked-out flash Harry.

This is what James Cleary liked most about this particular version of the Isuzu MU-X: Plenty of grunt, Heaps of space, Trick transmission

The 2017 Isuzu MU-X carries a braked towing capacity of up to 3000 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

The Isuzu MU-X is also known as the Chevrolet Colorado, the Chevrolet D-Max, the Chevrolet LUV D-Max, the Holden Colorado, the Holden Rodeo, the Isuzu KB, the Isuzu LB, the Isuzu Rodeo, the Chevrolet T Series and the GMC Canyon in markets outside Australia.

Isuzu MU-X Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Isuzu MU-X here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why is the fuel consumption of my 2019 Isuzu MU-X getting worse?

    My initial thought is that 11 or 12 litres per 100km for an overall average is about what I would have expected. These are not small cars, they’re not light and they have fairly ordinary aerodynamics.

    What you need to keep in mind is that the official fuel consumption figure is a number achieved on a very specific test cycle that in no way approximates a real-world experience. Car makers go to great lengths to nail a good number on these tests (for marketing purposes) often at the expense of real-world fuel economy. Yes, it does seem crazy, doesn’t it?

    You also mentioned you use your car mostly for high-speed driving. What’s your definition of high speed? Thanks to the aerodynamics of vehicles like the MU-X an extra 10km/h at freeway speeds can have a huge effect on economy. Even removing a roof-rack when you’re not using it can save a litre per 100km.

  • Isuzu MU-X 2016: Problems after servicing

    Any odd or new noises from an automatic transmission are, indeed, bad noises Gavin. Squealing or screeching from the gearbox can be caused by any number of things, but none of them are good and none of them are likely to go away on their own.

    To be honest, I’ve heard of more problems with the Isuzu’s manual gearbox, with the fifth-gear synchro dragging and making a dry-bearing noise. The first thing I’d do is interrogate the car’s on-board computer to see if any fault codes show up and take it from there.

  • What do you recommend for towing a horse trailer and large draft-horse?

    None of the vehicles you’ve listed are exactly low-maintenance units. They all have complex all-wheel-drive drivelines (which will be appreciated when towing a heavy trailer across a wet showground) and they use the latest common-rail diesel technology which is fairly intolerant of poor servicing.

    As for a power tailgate on a ute, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. But some of the wagon versions of these vehicles can be optioned with powered tailgates. The catch there is that these vehicles use coil sprung rear axles (as opposed to the leaf-sprung ute versions) so they’re not as adept at towing. The Toyota Fortuner, for instance can’t match the HiLux’s 3.5-tonne limit and makes do with 2800kg; not enough for your requirements. The Ford Everest (based on the Ranger) is a little better at 3000kg, but still trails the Ranger’s 3500kg towing capacity and is right on your self-imposed minimum.

  • Isuzu MU-X 2018: How much can my car tow?

    It’s not a good idea to be towing in fifth gear into a head wind or uphill, or in other adverse conditions. If you do the gearbox will shift back to fourth, or lower if need be. I wouldn’t be too concerned about towing a larger van, providing of course it doesn’t overload the MU-X. You could upgrade the turbo with a chip or other device, but in my view you’re risking trouble by doing it.
