Having gone on sale in 2013, the facelifted SUV’s arrival coincides with the 60th anniversary of the brand’s presence in Thailand.

On its outside, the revised MU-X sports new bumpers front and rear, along with LED headlamps and tail lights. In front, an updated grille marks the ladder-frame SUV’s visual change, while rolling stock now comprises 18-inch alloy wheels, up from the 17-inch items on the pre-facelift. A roof-mounted spoiler rounds up the exterior aesthetic updates.

Powerplants for the facelifted MU-X are made up of the 150 hp/350 Nm 1.9 litre turbodiesel and the 177 hp/380 Nm 3.0 litre turbodiesel, which also reside in the engine bays of the updated D-Max. The 1.9 litre unit is enlisted solely for 2WD duty in the updated MU-X, with the choice of either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The 3.0 litre is mated to a 4WD setup and a six-speed automatic transmission with hill descent control.

Inside, much of the architecture remains the same, albeit with updated cabin appointments: new soft-touch plastics have been introduced, as have wood-look trim inserts, while an eight-inch iConnect smartphone-capable infotainment unit sits atop the familiar circular HVAC control cluster from before.

The two-tier glove compartment, dashboard storage, and air-con vent-cooled cupholders are also carried over from the MU-X/D-Max front cabin. Meanwhile , the leather upholstery for the seats pictured here appear to use a revised trim pattern.

Isuzu MU-X Overview

The pumped-up Isuzu MU-X is a stand out performer on or off-road. With the legendary Isuzu 3-litre turbo diesel engine, a beefed up 430Nm of torque and an intuitive 6-speed transmission, the MU-X is all you need to pump up any adventure.

Pumped Up 3.0L Engine

MU-X has an exclusive Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel engine that produces 430Nm of torque. It also uses cutting-edge technology to provide excellent fuel economy while still making plenty of power.

3 Ton Towing

MU-X’s powerful diesel engine is built for towing. It will pull trailers, boats and caravans up hill and down the highway without breaking a sweat with a massive 3 tonne towing capacity+.

4X4 Terrain Command

With the Terrain Command 4×4 system and robust yet refined suspension, you can drive MU-X into the toughest terrain with ease. Wherever your spirit takes you, the Isuzu MU-X is along for the ride.

7-SEAT COMFORT

Whether you’re doing a sports run or heading for adventure, the 7-seat Isuzu MU-X has plenty of room and features to keep your family entertained.

Isuzu MU-X 1.9 Liter 1900 cc Engine

The MU-X gained a number of updates in 2016, led by the inclusion of the 1.9 litre Ddi mill to the model’s line-up. Like on the D-Max facelift, the RZ4E-TC offers 150 PS at 3,600 rpm and 350 Nm at 1,800 to 2,600 rpm, with two transmissions choices to pick from, a six-speed manual or a six-speed Rev Tronic automatic.

The 1.9 litre unit replaces the 4JK1-TCX 2.5 litre engine in the Isuzu D-Max/MU-X application. Isuzu says that despite the smaller displacement, the new engine is 16 hp more powerful and 30 Nm torquier than the outgoing mill, and it’s also 20% lighter.

As for the 3.0 litre version, no change to the 4JJ1-TCX’s output of 177 PS at 3,600 rpm and 380 Nm at 1,800 to 2,800 rpm. Only a single transmission is offered with this one, a six-speed Rev Tronic automatic.

Isuzu MU-X Thailand Variants

Six MU-X variants are available in Thailand, five of these being two-wheel drive versions, and the range starts from the 1.9 CD 6AT 2WD and 1.9 DVD 6MT 2WD, topping out with the 3.0 DA DVD 6AT 4WD.

Lots of additions to the interior, led by the addition of extra lining material to reduce in-cabin noise levels. As for trim, buyers can pick from Nature Touch decorative wood or gloss Piano Black as well as beige ivory or black leather upholstery, depending on model specification.

The equipment list includes cruise control, an auto dimming rearview mirror with built-in car video recorder, reverse camera and an eight-inch touchscreen audio system (rear passengers get a 10.2-inch screen).

Standard safety kit, available for all variants, consists of ABS with EBD and brake assist, ESC and traction control, hill start assist and dual airbags. In the Kingdom, the MU-X is available in four exterior colour choices, with Grey Iceberg Silver being a new tone introduced on the refresh job.

4×4 and 4×2: Like to tour the highways or hungry for off-road adventure? Everyone’s different, so MU-X has both 4×4 and 4×2 options Manual: From crawling across a rocky embankment to cruising down the highway, the 6-speed manual gives you total flexibility in all situations. Automatic: Want the ute to do the work for you? We’ve got you covered with a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission (which includes Rev-tronic sequential shifting if you want to take control). Grade logic keeps you in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain.

Isuzu MU-X Effiency

MU-X Fuel Economy under Road Conditions

MU-X is impressive in the lab, but it’s even better in the real world. When you’re driving real world roads in real world conditions—up hills, through traffic or rough terrain—you’ll be surprised at how far you can go without needing to stop for fuel.

Isuzu Diesel Specialist

Diesel engines are 20-30% more efficient than petrol, and Isuzu specialises in diesel engines. It’s all we use.

Greater energy density

Diesel is denser than petrol and contains more energy by volume. This means you burn less to do more.

Higher temperatures

Diesel engines burn fuel at a much higher temperature than petrol engines, which reduces waste and increases efficiency.

Higher compression

Diesel engines work under much higher levels of air/fuel compression than petrol engines, which is one way you get a higher torque output.
