The Isuzu MU-X will be replacing the MU-7 and it will be locally assembled at the company’s AP plant.
Isuzu seems to be all set to replace its existing SUV, the MU-7 with a new guest for the Indian market. The Isuzu MU-X has been spied testing on Indian roads with camouflage and it will be the one to replace its older sibling SUV in our country.
Many of the parts of this new SUV, including interiors as well as exteriors, are shared with the already existing Chevrolet TrailBlazer in India. However, reportedly, the MU-X will be assembled locally at the company’s Sri City plant in Andhra Pradesh, whereas the TrailBlazer enters as a CBU unit. At present, the D-Max and the D-Max V-Cross pickup truck from Isuzu are the vehicles which get assembled locally at this plant.
The Isuzu MU-X features shift-on-the fly four-wheel-drive technology which makes it easier to crossing rough terrains and the I-GRIP platform provides additional grip on the road. In the international markets, this new SUV is available with two engine options consisting of 1.99-litre and a 3.0-litre diesel motors.
Unlike the Isuzu MU-7, which had not a good response in our country, we expect the upcoming MU-X to be a consumer-attractive deal, owing to the expected competitive pricing of the vehicle. The D-Max V-Cross is seeing good engagement from customers and the MU-X is likely to carry this forward.
The Ford Endeavour, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and the new Toyota Fortuner will be rivalling against the Isuzu MU-X.
