EURO5 FIRST FOR AUSSIE ISUZU MU-X
Towing is set to get a whole lot cheaper with the Aussie release of the new MU-X, the first Isuzu ever to achieve Euro5 energy efficiency compliance. But more than just being easier on the hip pocket, the new gen MU-X enjoys plenty of grit offroad thanks to Isuzu’s front independent double wishbone suspension, with coil springs, gas shocks and stabiliser bar providing driver feedback no matter the terrain. A five-link suspension configuration with coil springs, stabiliser bar and gas shocks deliver superior stability out back, and generous wheel articulation on undulating tracks. Four-wheel drive variants of the MU-X also enjoy excellent ground clearance, a 2mm steel front skid plate, steel sump and transfer case guards, protection for the leading edge of the fuel tank when travelling offroad, and Hill Descent Control (HDC). All MU-X models offer 3T towing capacity (braked), with the under-stressed engine calibration providing exceptional fuel economy under load.
