Isuzu MU-X 2022. The oldest Japanese automobile company has long ago found its niche and successfully sells trucks and buses of different capacities, focusing on the markets of the Asian region.

But the latest high-profile novelty of the manufacturer was the D-Max pickup, which almost immediately showed up in Russia.

In the near future it should get a «civilian» off-road Isuzu MU-X 2022 model year: since 2013 this model was produced as a modified Chevrolet TrailBlazer, but the second generation was decided to base on the pickup.

MU-X borrowed from D-Max frame construction of the chassis and engine range, and by the length of the body (4850 mm) it became an analogue of such cars as Toyota Fortuner and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport.

At the same time the cheapest versions of Isuzu MU-X 2022, which will be sold mainly in Thailand, will be rear-wheel drive.

These cars will have only two front airbags and stabilization system as extras, but outside Asian markets the manufacturer plans to supply more «smart» cars — all-wheel drive, with modern electronic «assistants» and a wide range of comfort options.


The corporate style chosen by Isuzu Motors for its SUVs is cute and somewhat aggressive, which could be seen back on the pickup. The SUV also received a similar front design, although it has a different radiator grille and different headlights.

Unchanged attribute — the Isuzu lettering on the top of the grille, but the sides of cars with smooth pads of wheel arches are almost identical.

Like the pickup, the 2022 model year passenger MU-X is also notable for its high sill line and small side window area.

The SUV also gets two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels, which perfectly emphasize the solid 235-millimeter ground clearance.


The developers decided to borrow interior from the pickup, refreshing it with just a new décor.

At the same time the trim materials are chosen more soft and high-quality, so the interior immediately looked more expensive.

The front panel — as well as in the D-Max — a central display framed by air vents and numerous buttons, analog dashboard and branded multirule.
