Doug’s mu-X is still a favorite to many.

The Isuzu mu-X was first introduced in 2013 as a 7-seater mid-size SUV and it succeeded the Isuzu MU-7. For the local specs, the mu-X is powered by either a 1.9-liter diesel engine that produces 148 hp and 350 Nm of torque or a larger 3.0-liter diesel engine that generates 175 hp and 380 Nm of torque.

The Isuzu mu-X has a measurement that spans 4,825 mm in length, 1,860 mm in width, and 1,825 mm (1,840 mm for the higher variants) in height.

It possesses a massive and muscular body which makes the Isuzu mu-X a thrilling car to customize with off-roading upgrades. In fact, the acronym of its name is derived from the assertion that the car Makes U eXciting.
