Patent images of the next-generation Isuzu MU-X have surfaced online.
According to the patent images, the MU-X has been given a completely new front fascia with chrome slats and slim headlamp clusters. The front bumper has been redesigned with fog lamp pods positioned at the ends. The MU-X has flared wheel arches, slim, wraparound tail lamp clusters and a rear bumper with integrated reflectors.
The Isuzu MU-X shares its ladder frame chassis with the D-Max pickup truck. In India, the current-generation model is powered by a 3.0-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine which produces 174 BHP @ 3,600 rpm and 380 Nm of torque @ 1,800-2,800 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission and a shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive system.
At the moment, Isuzu has halted sales of the MU-X as the SUV is yet to receive a BS6-compliant engine.
