In fact, the current Isuzu D-Max and Isuzu MU-X have been already equipped with the 1.9L variant in other markets. The engine made its first debut a few years ago on the D-Max and then the MU-X. This engine version is capable of dishing out 148 hp and 360 Nm of torque and works in conjunction with both six-speed automatic and six-speed manual gearboxes.

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.
