Isuzu Performance


Our engines have long been famous for their superior fuel economy. Cutting edge technologies found in the fuel system, turbocharger, gearbox and the vehicle aerodynamics are key contributors.

Many design secrets and cutting edge technologies contribute to the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Our vehicle’s aerodynamic body designs, for example, were tested in Japan’s bullet train wind tunnels to ensure maximum aerodynamics and minimal drag.

The most important factor however, is the Isuzu turbo diesel engine which uses Isuzu’s super high-pressure common rail fuel system as well as an advanced Variable Geometry System (VGS) turbo charger to develop maximum power while using minimum fuel. Plus, an intelligent 6-speed automatic gearbox ensures you’re always in the correct gear and saving fuel.

Both the Isuzu D-MAX and MU-X are capable of towing a serious load. Whether towing a large boat, horse float, caravan or a trailer full of tools, you can be confident that the Isuzu is equipped to perform.

The D-MAX offers 3.5 tonne braked towing+ and 3.0 tonne braked towing+ on the MU-X. In other words, both the D-MAX and MU-X are built to handle your towing needs whatever road your work or weekend adventures takes you down.
