2022 Isuzu MU-X Revealed In Australia, Launching Soon
Will Isuzu launch the handsome pickup-based SUV here?
Isuzu Ute Australia has released the first official photos of the new Isuzu MU-X ahead of its public online launch in a few months time.
As you can see, the second generation model brings a more attractive look over its predecessor thanks to a styling makeover comprising of smooth edges and clean lines.
At the front, there is Isuzu’s signature double horizontal bar grille with a thick surround that extends into the bi-LED headlights. Meanwhile, slim horizontal tail lights and a simplistic bumper design make the rear look very tidy. For the Australian market, the MU-X will come with 20-inch wheels.
As with the exterior, the interior of the seven-seat SUV also appears more upmarket, largely owing to the “prestigious-looking” dashboard. Standard equipment includes a large 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay as well as a whole suite of Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS).
While technical specifications remain undisclosed at the time of writing, we can confirm that the MU-X rides on the same ladder-frame chassis as the D-Max. It is therefore safe to assume that it will be offered with the same 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel that makes 190 PS and 450 Nm in the pickup truck.
Ahead of the full Australian reveal in the coming months, the first preview of the highly-anticipated All-New Isuzu MU-X seven-seat SUV has been shared by Isuzu UTE Australia, showcasing new technology, sumptuous interior appointments and ruggedly-refined exterior design.
“While it’s too early to reveal all the details, I’m proud to share that we’ve been working hard to ensure that our All-New Isuzu MU-X combines the latest technology and design with the proven formula of durability and reliability that Australian motorists have come to expect from Isuzu over the years,” said Isuzu UTE Australia Managing Director, Hiroyasu Sato.
A welcomed foretaste of what is to come, the first look presents premium appointments throughout, including a plush and versatile seven-seat interior and innovative technology, with a large 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay® commanding attention towards the centre of the prestigious-looking dashboard.
While the exterior is bold and dynamic in design, offering handsomely-chiselled bodywork with distinctively-angled Bi-LED headlights with LED daytime driving lights. Ruggedly-refined in design, the signature look is crescendo by the trademark-Isuzu double horizontal bar grille that draws focus towards the muscular haunches, which are tastefully filled by large 20-inch wheels.
With Australia charting as the largest global export-market for Isuzu, the Australian-specification All-New Isuzu MU-X is expected to evolve from the new-generation MU-X first revealed in Thailand in late-2020. With the Australian iteration to offer a full suite of safety features through Isuzu’s Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS), along with unprecedented-levels of equipment and technology previously unseen in any Isuzu before.
Full specifications detailing all-advancements instilled in the All-New Isuzu MU-X is set to be revealed via an online public launch première in the coming months, prior to arriving at local Dealers shortly after.
