Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Is a rehashed Chevrolet Trailblazer.

The Isuzu MU-X SUV which was launched last week in the nation is in attendance at the CAMPI 2014 (Philippines International Motor Show 2014).

The Isuzu MU-X replaces the MU-7 and is imported from Thailand.

Based on the Chevrolet Trailblazer and pitted as a replacement for the MU-7, the MU-X is essentially the passenger carrying version of the current gen D-Max (older D-Max is on sale in India), which in turn is based on the Chevrolet Colorado pickup.
