When Isuzu Philippines Corporation first announced the arrival of the brand’s Blue Power Technology on their 20th anniversary celebration, many were stoked to see the mu-X among the lineup that now come with this latest offering. And as if having an eco-friendly turbo diesel engine is not enough for a midsize SUV, Isuzu also redesigned the mu-X, giving it a much stronger appearance. The 2018 version of Isuzu mu-X is powered with Isuzu’s new Blue Power Euro 4 diesel engine that provides 177 of power, which makes it 14 ps more than the current model. Meanwhile, it retains the same figures for the torque at 380 Nm. Aside from the changes that have been done under the hood, the previous five-speed automatic has also been replaced by a six-speed configuration. Moreover, looking at the outside of the 2018 mu-X, it can be pointed out easily that the model has gotten a number of design tweaks. The grille has been restyled, the bumper has been revamped, and new Bi-LED headlights with daytime running lamps have been added. The side profile looks the same as the current model except for the new 18-inch alloy wheels which used to be 17 inches. Inside, not many changes have been done as the interior looks similar with the older models. However, the soft touch materials and the makeover that has been done with the seat design cannot be overlooked. Additionally, the 2018 mu-X now features auto-headlight leveling, hill descent control, and an 8-inch touchscreen entertainment system with USB link and text-to-speech navigation. Despite having these changes and improvements, the 2018 mu-X is still equipped with Electronic Stability Control, Traction Control System, Anti-Theft Alarm System, and other Isuzu’s fundamental safety features.
Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) shocked the market when they launched a new entry-level automatic of the mu-X. It’s priced at Php 1.3M and is powered by Isuzu’s small yet powerful 1.9-liter RZ4E turbo-diesel. We get behind the wheel to give you a full review of this spiritual Crosswind replacement, albeit in SUV form.

Have you ever wondered how Japanese people pronounce japanese car brand names? well, fear no more. In today's video, I will teach you how to say Japanese car brand names such as Mitsubishi, Subaru, Mazda, Lexus, Acura and Toyota. Sorry guys, I meant Lexus wasn't recognized as a brand in Japan until 2005. Not North America. And for those of you getting butthurt over this "correct" pronunciation video, let me remind you that I did not create this video to force anyone to pronounce brands the Japanese way. Do I force Japanese people to pronounce Ford, GM, and Chrysler the way we do in the states? Hell no. This video is for entertainment and educational purposes only. Every region pronounces words differently and that's the beauty of the diverse world we live in. I plan on filming another episode on "how to pronounce Japanese car models" and motorcycle brand names. if you have a car like Hakosuka or Hachiroku that you are curious how it's pronounced, comment away in the comment section below :) Help Us Reach 250k Subscribers! - https://goo.gl/6YCzTF Evo Parts And CZero Merchandise - http://www.CZeroMedia.com (Coupon Code "YOUTUBE") *** Facebook - https://goo.gl/qJMpn3 *** Instagram - https://goo.gl/1RJmhc *** My Camera Setup - https://goo.gl/VU2xLJ Follow my builds *** 500HP Voltex Evo 8 - https://goo.gl/2NYogt *** LS6 FD RX7 Race Car - https://goo.gl/BJZ1AK *** Honda Café Racer - https://goo.gl/aYPCss *** Asian Redneck Dodge Ram - https://goo.gl/4sFyy5 *** Vlogs - https://goo.gl/PbsHpF acura
While MY17 MU-X signalled a massive change for the better in Isuzu Ute Australia’s (IUA) SUV line-up, this year is more of a subdued affair.
Last year heralded the arrival of a new 3.0-litre engine, new six-speed automatic transmission, and upgraded Aussie-specific suspension, as well as styling tweaks; MY18 MU-Xs get extended service intervals and a new exterior colour.
It’s a clear case of IUA applying a ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ approach to its popular ute-based SUV.
There are seven variants in the MY18 MU-X range: the 4x2 LS-M auto ($42,900), 4x2 LS-U auto ($45,200), 4x2 LS-T auto ($48,900), 4x4 LS-M auto ($50,200), 4x4 LS-U manual ($50,400), 4x4 LS-U auto ($52,500), and 4x4 LS-T auto ($56,200). All are seven-seater SUVs.
The base-spec LS-M’s standard features include 7.0-inch touchscreen with USB and Bluetooth streaming, reversing camera and rear park assist sensors, LED daytime running lights, gun metallic front grille, bi-LED projector headlights, colour-coded door handles and side mirrors, hill descent control, air-conditioning, power windows, and 16-inch alloy wheels.
The LS-U gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen, chrome front grille, door handles and side mirrors, as well as side steps, rear cabin cooling vents, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The LS-T also gets leather-accented seats, passive entry and start system, six-way adjustable electric driver’s seat, roof rails, tailgate spoiler, chrome muffler tip and 10-inch DVD screen for rear passengers.
The MY18 MU-X is available in seven colours: 'Cosmic Black Mica', 'Obsidian Grey Mica', 'Havana Brown Mica', 'Silky White Pearl', 'Splash White', 'Titanium Silver' and the new 'Magnetic Red Mica' option.
The Euro 5 3.0-litre four-cylinder common rail diesel engine, producing 130kw at 3600rpm and 430Nm at 2000-2200rpm, and six-speed Aisin-sourced automatic transmission carry-over from MY17.
This launch marked no noteworthy styling changes in the MU-X, inside or out. It remains a blocky but good-looking unit, blending a bush-ready appearance with styling that doesn’t look out of place in an urban setting.
Build quality and fit and finish seem as sturdy as we’ve come to expect from IUA’s mainstream offerings.
The MU-X’s cabin, unchanged, should remain an easy place in which to travel. It’s roomy enough for everyone.
The second row is a 60/40 split-fold with a fold-away centre armrest. The third row is a tight fit for adults but that’s nothing unusual in most seven-seaters.
There is 235 litres of boot space when the third row is up, expanding to 878 litres when the 50/50 split-fold third row is folded flat. When the second and third rows are down, there is 1830 litres of space.
The MU-X has 12 cupholders, 18 'storage solutions' (door compartments with bottle bulge, coat hooks, rear cargo organiser box, etc), USB ports (front and rear) and three 12V power outlets (centre dash, glove box and rear cargo area).
The MU-X has a braked towing capacity of 3000kg, 750kg unbraked.
