2018 Isuzu mu-X

updated: October 29, 2017 19:04 | launched: 18-07-20 22:46:19

As Isuzu Philippines Corporation celebrates its 20th anniversary, the heavily revamped Isuzu Mu-X makes its debut in the Philippines. Like the model unveiled in Thailand back in March this year, the local-spec 2018 Isuzu Mu-X not only gets a host of changes inside and out, there is also an all-new engine under the hood.

Internally known as the 4JJ1-TCX, Isuzu dubs the new turbodiesel engine Blue Power and it packs more power than the present model. From the 163 PS found in the current model, the Blue Power turbodiesel gets a significant bump to 177 PS. Torque meanwhile is retained at 380 Nm.

Aside from the new engine, the old five-speed automatic has been replaced by a six-speed unit in the Mu-X, also with sequential shift mode.

For 2018, the Mu-X gets a reshaped front bumper with new lower accents. Illumination is provided by Bi-LED headlights which incorporates the daytime running lights within the units. Complementing the new light signature is mildly redesigned grill with more creases at its corners. There are also changes made to the rear of the revamped Mu-X, namely new lower bumper mouldings and new tail lights which now feature an LED strip. Its side profile on the other hand retains the look of the current model but it does ride on new 18-inch alloy wheels, replacing the old 17-inch wheels.


One does not need an eagle eye to spot the differences between the 2018 model from its pre-update variants. At the front are new headlights which feature LED projector units, as well as integrated LED daytime running lights. To complement the new lights, there is also a mildly tweaked grill, similar to that of its pick-up counterpart, the D-Max. Lower down, the apron has been remolded with a new set of air intakes and foglights...
