A SERIOUS PERFORMER
Towing, touring or city cruising, the MU-X can take it all on. The Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel engine delivers a massive 450Nm of torque matched with a 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 a load.
3.0L Isuzu Engine
3.0L Turbo Diesel
The secret to producing efficient power is having a large capacity, under-stressed engine that can cope with any challenge. The 3.0L turbo diesel engine is why the MU-X delivers more power and torque using less fuel, making it one of the most efficient 7-seat SUVs out there.
Let the intuitive 6-speed automatic MU-X do all the smooth shifting for you. Grade Logic technology makes sure you are in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain. If you do wish to take control, select Rev-tronic mode for sequential shifting.
Torque on demand
The advanced 3.0 litre turbo diesel engine produces 140kW and an avalanche of torque on demand, with 450Nm available from just 1,600 through to 2,600rpm. This provides exceptional take-off and acceleration with a broad, flat torque band aiding overall drive-ability - also perfect for when carrying a load, or towing up to 3.5T+.
3.5T PULLING POWER
One of the greatest things about Australia is going your own way with a caravan, boat, or trailer in tow.
The power and dependability of Isuzu’s proven 3-litre turbo-diesel engine make light work of every journey, and a genuine Isuzu UTE tow-bar kit will enable 3.5 tonne towing+. With the Isuzu MU-X, you’ve got the perfect travelling companion.
On & OFF-ROAD
Rear Differential Lock
To get you out of the toughest spots, our 4x4 models come standard with a rear differential lock. If you’re on a slippery, uneven surface with the rear wheels spinning, the rear differential lock assists the low-ratio 4WD-low mode to give you the extra traction and control needed to keep moving.
800mm Wading Depth∞
Wherever you’re planning to go, your 4x4 MU-X is up for the task. With generous steel underbody protection, and a wading depth∞ of up to 800mm, the MU-X is your most reliable way to escape the everyday.
4x4 Terrain Command
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.
Rough Terrain Mode
Engineered for Australian conditions, every 4x4 MU-X features Rough Terrain Mode as standard. Rough Terrain Mode provides a new lease on traction as an off-road biased electronic driver aid that maximises drivability in technical, slippery and rough conditions.
The MU-X 4x4 models have sturdy steel underbody protection, including a steel sump and transfer case guard, for extra protection in punishing off-road conditions.
80 Litre Fuel Tank
Drive further, for longer with the help of the MU-X’s huge 80 litre fuel tank.
Hill Start Assist & Descent Control
Take on any challenge with Hill Start Assist which prevents vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees). Hill Descent Control gives you the confidence to tackle any downhill terrain by ensuring maximum traction.
PROVEN FUEL EFFICIENCY
Common Rail Technology
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 resulting in a lower drag co-efficient (Cd) figure. The sleek final result not only improves fuel efficiency, the shape reduces cabin noise for a quieter, more comfortable ride.
+Braked towing capacity on all D-MAX models when fitted with an optional Genuine Isuzu UTE tow bar kit. ∞Up to 800mm of wading depth on all D-MAX models when travelling at a consistent speed of 7km/h. Water ingress may occur if speed is not maintained or if the vehicle is static in water above 350mm.
