Five years after its market introduction, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) hosted a special Grand Family Event to celebrate its best-selling SUV, the Isuzu mu-X.
Held at the Filinvest Tent Alabang, IPC invited some 300 Isuzu vehicles coming from their big car clubs – Team Isuzu Pilipinas, Team Isuzu Car Enthusiast and mu-X Owners Philippines in a whole day of fun and activities like the car club motor show, mini games, parts & accessories display, Isuzu iconic vehicle display and a free concert at the end of the day.
“Introduced in 2014, the Isuzu mu-X became an instant hit to Filipino families nationwide, mainly due to its excellent performance, elegant styling and outstanding comfort – factors that are very important for a family vehicle,” said IPC President Hajime Koso.
During the event, IPC also introduced its latest addition to the mu-X line-up, a limited 5th year anniversary edition, the Isuzu mu-X Boondock. The Isuzu mu-X Boondock is more than just aesthetics, its lift kit suspension and off-road tires are designed for off-roading performance.
The Boondock Edition is based on the popular mu-X 3.0L LS-A. Equipped with upgraded features to increase ride height to 247mm and get that off-road look that the Boondock is known for. Running on the ever reliable 4JJ1-TC Blue Power Engine, the mu-X Boondock can provide 177PS maximum power and 380 N-m maximum torque, that is EURO 4 compliant.
Completing its off-road look, the new Isuzu mu-X Boondock comes with a gray over fender, newly designed front bumper, steel step board with Boondock logo and a fully functional roof rail with cross bar, perfect for family road trips.
“Isuzu mu-X Boondock Limited Edition is truly as special treat to the mid-size SUV market. Coming from the success of the Boondock Series, this variant is a great addition to the mu-X line-up. Which has proven its outstanding performance, impressive design, comfort, safety and over-all reliability as family vehicle in the past five years,” Koso added.
Available in 4×2 automatic transmission, the mu-X Boondock comes exclusively for Havana Brown body color.
