Isuzu MU-X (Toyota Fortuner-rival) to launch in India this year – Report
Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Will be assembled in Isuzu’s new plant in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh.
Sharing its underpinnings with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, the Isuzu MU-X features a more contemporary styling that borrows cues from the new D-Max. It sports a chrome grille, flared wheel arches, 16-inch alloy wheels and a wraparound rear windshield similar to the Trailblazer.
The similarities with the Trailblazer are also seen inside. The MU-X comes with a silver accented steering wheel, 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat, 6-speaker touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and navigation, roof-mounted 10-inch DVD monitor, climate control, split and fold second and third row seats, 12 cup holders and 19 cubby holes.
It’s unclear if the MU-X will launch with the smaller RZ4E-TC 1.9-litre turbo-diesel engine that produces 150 PS at 3,600 rpm and 350 Nm at 1,800-2,600 rpm, or the 4JJ1-TCX 3.0-litre turbo-diesel motor that develops 177 PS at 3,600 rpm and 380 Nm at 1,800-2,800 rpm. With the 1.9-liter engine, Isuzu can sell the MU-X in Delhi-NCR where there’s a ban on diesel engines displacing more than 2,000cc.
