This Japanese car producer will mark their 100 years of existence in 2016 and they are preparing some nice releases for that model year. One of them is 2016 Isuzu MU-X. This new release will be a car that is going to face a lot of competition in the sports utility vehicles (SUV) market. Isuzu is trying to position as one of the leaders of this market but it will not be easy due to strong competition. MU-X will offer style, design and comfort similar to other SUV’s out there so they will have to put up a lot of effort to stand out from the competition.
2016 Isuzu MU-X Engine and Specs
Powertrain will be consisted out of one engine option. That will be a 3.0 liter turbo diesel four cylinder engine that is able to produce 130 horsepower and about 380 lb. –ft. of torque. That is fair enough even though there are cars with better numbers in this segment. Engine will come in pair with five speed transmission that will be both automatic and manual depending on buyer’s preferences. Company said that this car will have a lifetime rate of at least 500,000 miles which is pretty ensuring and if true may be a thing to differentiate it from the competition.
2016 Isuzu MU-X Design
On the outside this cars looks both strong and aggressive. Big front grille and one of a kind bumper make this car’s front side look very striking. This car is built for both on and off-road drives and we can see it by just looking at it. This car has sturdy construction that allows it to have good towing strength; it is said this car can tow up to 3,000 kg which is not little and is very impressive. On the inside this car will be spacy and it will provide decent level of comfort. It is not the roomiest car out there, but if we consider that amount free space is a big deal for every car, we can conclude Isuzu’s design team had put up a lot of work in the interior spacing. There is enough head and leg room even for a tall person. Other features are iGo navigation, eight speaker audio system, reverse camera etc. Pretty decent for an SUV and if we count in the safety features this car proves worthy. It comes with six airbags, rear sensors and rear camera, electronic stability and traction control, braking mechanism assist and so on.
