Explore The MU-X.
The 7-seat MU-X is here! Bringing new levels of SUV luxury and comfort, it has retained the durability and toughness that our MU-X is known for. Available in 2 variants, the LS-U and LS-T.
Both variants have a 6-speed automatic transmission powered by Isuzu's legendary 3-litre turbo diesel engine which Isuzu Good Bastards across New Zealand have come to love. This gives our MU-X SUV a 3,500 kg braked tow rating - towing your boat or trailer has never been easier.
With Isuzu's Intelligent Driver Assistance System (IDAS*) as standard, MU-X is safer than before. It's been awarded a 5-star ANCAP safety rating and both variants come with added luxuries like Adaptive Cruise Control, dual-zone climate air-conditioning, rear parking sensors, and a 9-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 8 speakers.
This is Deborah.
Her and her husband, Graham, live on a dry stock farm in South Canterbury. They have 7 kids, 8 dogs, a new generation D-Max and an all-new MU-X LS-T. In fact, this is Deborahs third MU-X. She loved her old one, but once she tried the all-new model, she was keen to upgrade.
As you can imagine, with 7 kids and a farm, she's pretty busy. Her MU-X is a bit of everything - it's the work truck, the school bus, the family car, the portable office, and everything else in between. It's towing 3500kg of hay up a gravel road one minute, and the next she's off to drop the kids at rugby, or cricket, or highland dancing. Quick stop at the store, make some calls while she's got cell reception, then back to the farm.
Lucky she has the space, toughness, power and safety of her MU-X.
You could say it's as tough as a mother...

Occupant and driver convenience has been greatly improved in the all-new MU-X. An abundance of thoughtfully placed storage and cup holders complete the interior giving it a striking sense of design and function.
Just like the D-Max, the all-new MU-X interior takes inspiration from airplane cockpits. This means that control ergonomics, occupant comfort, material quality & durability, and driver visibility are key priorities. Jump into the all-new MU-X and see for yourself how the design has come to life.
The all-new MU-X has 3 rows of seating to give a total of 7 seats. The front seats are bucket whiplash protected seats with electric adjustment and a heating feature for the LS-T those chilly mornings. The split-fold rear seats feature a foldable centre armrest and 2 USB ports. Double sealed doors and an excess of soundproofing makes the MU-X a peaceful and relaxing ride.
The all-new MU-X has cup holders in all 3 rows, storage for tissues, a 12v 120-watt power socket and 3 USB ports in total. The upper center console storage, under steering wheel storage, deep door pockets, and seatback pockets provide storage solutions for those easily misplaced but much-needed items. Still need more space? Fold-down the rear seats, or make use of the roof rails which come as standard on the all-new MU-X
Since developing Japan's first air-cooled automotive diesel engine in 1936, Isuzu has continued to build a reputation for world-class diesel engines. Constant technological improvements, innovations and in-depth experience across the production of more than 26 million diesel engines means Isuzu is an established global leader in developing capable and efficient engines.
Isuzu 4JJ3 3.0L Engine
The dependable 3.0L 4JJ3 turbo-diesel engine has been given a tickle-up and now produces even more power and torque. Revisions to the high-pressure injector system, electronically controlled variable geometry turbocharger and engine internals result in an extra 10 kW of power, plus another 20 Nm of torque, all while maintaining class-leading dependability.
The Terrain Command dial in the all-new MU-X allows you to shift between 2WD and 4WD Hi mode on the move (up to 100km/h) for improved traction when driving conditions change.
3,500KG Towing Ability
Your search for the perfect travelling companion is over. The MU-X can seat up to 7 people, and tow up to 3,500kg. Isuzu’s legendary 3-litre turbo diesel engine delivers high torque across the range, making light work of a caravan, boat, or trailer. Trailer Sway Control (TSC) assists with towing in high winds or on uneven surfaces.
The all-new MU-X's go-anywhere ability has been further improved providing you with a 7-seater SUV that is as at home up in the backcountry hills as it is out on State Highway One. Wading depth has been increased to 800mm for those extra deep crossings, and the all-new MU-X now includes a rear differential lock for improved traction on slippery surfaces. For on-road excursions, there is a range of new electronic driving aids to keep you on the straight and narrow.
