We are still awaiting the complete technical specifications of these utility vehicles. Isuzu hasn’t launched a website or a Facebook page listing these vital statistics. Indonesia and Thailand have them on sale, but the powertrain tuning states are varied.

We will update you on the exact technical specifications later this week, so make sure to keep a tab on IndianAutosBlog.com.

    I’m no expert, but the interiors of the Isuzu MU-7 hardly look like those from a 20+ lac vehicle…
    Compare them to those on Fortuner, Santa Fe (or even Rexton) and you’ll know what I’m talkin bout!

  • Praveen

    Seems like the D-Max launched in India is the previous generation model (First generation and not the current second generation). See link below:

  • MRIDHUL

    itsnt looking like a 24 lakh car… you get more car on dis price tag…its looks like force one..:(

    • ashish

      yes that is true the dashboard is straight copy of the force one dashboard though with more appealing look and feel.

      Exact specifications are not out still It seems to be overpriced.

  • Mohammed

    Good work Shrawan and team. Would love to have more details on both the products. Look forward to that.

  • R.Raghuvansh

    isnt isuzu here on a test trial? what happens if their “test” fails?

  • Sharad

    Nice SUV. hope they open new dealerships quickly. Isuzus are as robust as a Toyota or Mitsu

  • Madhu

    Both models have similar truck like interiors but why huge cost differentials
