Whether towing your boat, caravan, horse float or trailer, the MU-X does it with ease and confidence thanks to the ingenious Isuzu technology and Japanese engineering under the bonnet.
At the heart of every MU-X is the famous Isuzu engine, exclusive to the Isuzu range. It's one of Isuzu's most popular engines, now powering your Isuzu SUV.
The secret to producing efficient power is to have a large capacity, under-stressed engine, able to cope with the challenges you throw at it. This is how the 7-seat Isuzu MU-X delivers more power and torque with less fuel, making it one of the most fuel efficient 7-seat SUV's available.
Isuzu are diesel specialists, and MU-X is powered by the famous Isuzu 4JJ1 turbo diesel engine- making it the only turbo diesel SUV on the Australian market with this under the bonnet. If you want power and torque on demand, this engine gives it to you.
You're taking your family on holiday, towing a trailer loaded with camping gear, and now you're heading up a hill - no worries. With 430Nm of torque, you'll experience smooth acceleration no matter what load you're carrying.
When the MU-X was designed, it was extensively tested to ensure the shape provides outstanding aerodynamics and a low drag co-efficiency (Cd) figure. The sleek design not only improves fuel economy by minimising drag, but also reduces cabin noise levels to give you a more comfortable ride.
To back up the Isuzu 3.0L turbo diesel, the MU-X has a range of drivetrain options, so there's a model to suit everyone.
Like to tour the highways or hungry for off-road adventure? Everyone's different, so MU-X has both 4x4 and 4x2 options.
From crawling across a rocky embankment to cruising down the highway, the 6-speed manual gives you total flexibility in all situations.
Want the ute to do the work for you? We've got you covered with a 6-speed sequential automatic transmission (which includes Rev-tronic sequential shifting if you want to take control). Grade logic keeps you in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain.
Driving along sealed roads you're already set, but when it comes to dirt, beach or gravel just turn the dial to 4-High for more traction. At speeds up to 100km/h, you don't even need to slow down. And if you're going off-road into sand or mud, turn the dial to 4-Low for extreme traction and ultimate control.
MU-X gives you serious towing ability, with 3 tonne braked towing capacity across all models. Load up the back with all your gear, and then tow a boat, caravan or trailer. When you're heading out on adventure with your MU-X, you don't need to leave anything behind.
A family-friendly SUV that can take on the world, MU-X gives you the opportunity to head off-road like never before.
All 4x4 MU-X models are equipped with Isuzu's super-easy to use "Terrain command" 4WD select dial with hill-ascent and descent control in 4L - so when the road that takes you to that secret beach or hidden mountain range gets tough, your spirit for adventure won't be stopped in its tracks.
The specifically developed High-Ride coil spring and gas shock suspension balances firmness with suppleness, offering a comfortable ride without compromising handling.
Our 4x4 SUV models feature underbody protection including a steel sump and transfer case guard for extra protection when the going gets rough off-road.
Comfortably tackle any environment with an electronic brake control that automatically engages the Hill Start Assist to prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees). Hill Descent Control will give you the confidence to tackle any downhill terrain, giving you maximum traction
When you're juggling the daily routine, you need a vehicle that can keep up with the pace. MU-X is the vehicle you can rely on.
The MU-X is built with the values that have made Isuzu famous: dependability, reliability and efficiency. Ready for the long haul, it's built seriously tough—so you can rely on it for work, play and adventure.
The MU-X is full of engineering details that only Isuzu would think of, each one of them designed to make the MU-X really tough. Here are some clever design features beneath the skin.
Fancy replacing your timing belt? Probably not - so the Isuzu MU-X doesn't have one. Instead it uses a heavy duty steel timing chain designed to last the life of the engine
The ladder chassis has been specifically designed for the MU-X. Its heavy duty design ensures long term durability, and improves stability whether loaded or towing.
This unique detail eliminates backlash on engine deceleration, reducing engine wear.
Isuzu's diesel engines are built to withstand higher temperatures and pressures than other engines, so the MU-X 3.0L turbo diesel engine is tough by nature, hard-wearing and provides the legendary Isuzu reliability that you have come to expect.
With the MU-X we've built something that's more than just a regular family SUV. MU-X is an open door to adventure. Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to go, you can be confident that MU-X will get you there and back again.

In emergency situations, drivers can often panic when hitting the brakes. EBA detects emergency braking and takes over for you, applying maximum pressure to dramatically reduce stopping distance.
The ultimate in active safety. Through a network of sensors throughout the vehicle, ESC can detect if you are over or understeering. It then commands ABS, TCS and the engine management computer to make sure you stay in control. It’s like a third hand on the steering wheel, keeping you safe.
For added driver control and safety, the electronic brake control will automatically engage the Hill Start Assist to prevent vehicle roll-back when starting on steep gradients (above 5.7 degrees).
