Towing, touring or city cruising, the MU-X can take on it all. The Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel engine delivers a massive 430Nm of torque matched with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Using highly-advanced Isuzu common-rail diesel technology this balances the power with superior fuel efficiency. The end result is outstanding performance to tackle any hill, overtake on the freeway and tow what you like without constant visits to the fuel station.
At the heart of every MU-X is the famous 3.0L Isuzu engine, exclusive to the Isuzu range. It's one of Isuzu's most popular engines, now powering your Isuzu SUV.
The secret to producing efficient power is having a large capacity, under-stressed engine that can cope with any challenge. The exclusive 3.0L turbo diesel engine is why the MU-X delivers more power and torque using less fuel, making it one of the most fuel efficient 7-seat SUVs out there.
Choose the intuitive 6-speed automatic and let the MU-X do all the smooth shifting for you. If you do wish to take control, select Rev-tronic mode for sequential shifting. Grade Logic technology makes sure you are in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain.
With 430Nm of torque on demand, you'll experience smooth acceleration with the MU-X no matter the load. From passengers in every seat, to hauling a trailer full of camping essentials, the MU-X will tackle the road ahead and any hill with ease.
The MU-X has serious pulling power, with 3 tonne braked towing capacity across all models. Load up the back with all your gear, then hitch up a boat, caravan or trailer. Driving the MU-X you don't ever have to leave anything behind.
Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol engines. The MU-X is so fuel efficient because our engineers have decades of experience in commercial transport, where every litre counts.
Isuzu's super-high pressure common rail technology ensures you burn minimal fuel, while enjoying maximum performance from precise control over injection timing and the amount of fuel delivered.
The MU-X Variable Geometry System (VGS) constantly adjusts to achieve optimum air compression from low revs, which ensures minimal fuel consumption with maximum torque across the rev-range.
When the MU-X was designed, it underwent extensive testing to ensure its shape provided outstanding aerodynamics and created a low drag co-efficiency (Cd) figure. The sleek final result not only improves fuel efficiency, the shape reduces cabin noise for a quieter, more comfortable ride.
Like to tour the tarmac? Or hungry for off-road adventure? Everyone's different, so the MU-X offers both 4x4 and 4x2 options.
The MU-X is equipped with super easy to use 4x4 Terrain Command. So when you discover that secret beach or hidden mountain range, simply select 4H at speeds up to 100km/h. Or if the going gets tough, you won't be stopped in your tracks with 4L providing extreme traction and complete control.
Take on any challenge with Hill Start Assist which prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees). Hill Descent Control give you the confidence to tackle any downhill terrain by ensuring maximum traction.
The MU-X 4x4 models have sturdy steel underbody protection, including a steel sump and transfer cage guard, to take the knocks in punishing off-road conditions.
