The Isuzu is in the process of manufacturing a better MU-X. As a fan of this car, we are looking forward to a 7 seater full-size SUV with a more innovative exterior, interior, and powertrain. The upcoming model will go with the name Isuzu MU-X 2017 and will be available in the coming few months.
Isuzu MU-X 2017 – Exterior and Interior Changes:
The new car will definitely have a sporty look. There is no doubt about this since it is a modern SUV. The entire exterior will feature elegant features. The body panels will be smoothened and will spot sleek overtures, curves, and lines.
The front end of Isuzu MU-X 2017 will look a bit aggressive due to a bigger grille & bumper, huge LED lights, and wider air vents. The major highlight in the rear end will be bigger, well-positioned taillights that are expected to improve the car’s driving safety and convenience. Other notable exterior features include large alloys wheels and modern side mirrors.
Interior wise, the 2017 Isuzu MU-X will come with more functional seats. The driver seat will feature a heating system and also an adjustable mechanism. The rear seats will be foldable which means that a bigger cargo space will always be available when large luggage needs to be ferried. Fine leather will be available in the seats and also on the steering wheel.
More interior features include a bigger colored touchscreen, an air conditioning system, a rearview camera and an 8-speaker audio system. The driver will control most of the car’s equipment from the touchscreen. Being a modern vehicle, we are looking forward to more tech features like satellite navigation, USB ports, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Smartphone integration.
Isuzu MU-X 2017 – Engine and Maximum Power Output:
According to the car manufacturer, the new MU-X will be equipped with a 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine. The 3.0-liter powerhouse will be capable of generating 130 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. The engine’s power will be transferred to the wheels with the help of a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission system.
The powertrain is capable of providing the 0-60 mph acceleration in 9.0 seconds. Concerning fuel economy, the vehicle will record fuel consumption figures of around 12 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway. It will also record lesser CO2 emissions compared to the outgoing model.
The automaker will ensure the upcoming Isuzu MU-X 2017 is safe and secure by installing features such anti-lock brake system (ABS), digital security control (DSC), digital brake distribution (EBD), seatbelts, rear cross traffic alert, airbags, advanced cruise control, traffic alert, blind spot detection and lane departure assist.
Isuzu MU-X 2017 – Expected MSRP, Competitions:
The Isuzu full-size SUV will be a bit costly. You will be required to spend around $26,000 to own it. The prices will be higher for MU-X with premium features. As mentioned above, the car will be available probably in the last quarter of 2016 or early 2017.
