While Isuzu Philippines still keeps silent about the selected vehicle, it is estimated that one or even both the MU-X and D-Max will be powered by the 1.9L version. At the present, the Isuzu MU-X 2018 solely comes with the 3.0L engine paired with an automatic transmission. Thus, with new engine option, hope that more new variants could be soon released in order to duel with other rivals in its class.
