3.0L ISUZU ENGINE
The secret to producing efficient power is having a large capacity, under-stressed engine that can cope with any challenge. The 3.0L turbo-diesel engine is why the MU-X delivers more power and torque using less fuel, making it one of the most fuel efficient 7-seat SUVs out there.
Let the intuitive 6-speed automatic MU-X do all the smooth shifting for you. Grade Logic technology makes sure you are in the correct gear when ascending and descending tough terrain. If you do wish to take control, select Rev-tronic mode for sequential shifting.
TORQUE ON DEMAND
The advanced 3.0 litre turbo-diesel engine produces 140kW and an avalanche of torque on demand, with 450Nm available from just 1,600 through to 2,600rpm. This provides exceptional take-off and acceleration with a broad, flat torque band aiding overall drive-ability - also perfect for when carrying a load, or towing up to 3.5T+.
TOW YOUR OWN WAY
3.5T PULLING POWER
One of the greatest things about Australia is going your own way with a caravan, boat, or trailer in tow.
The power and dependability of Isuzu’s proven 3-litre turbo-diesel engine make light work of every journey, and a genuine Isuzu UTE tow-bar kit will enable 3.5 tonne towing+. With the Isuzu MU-X, you’ve got the perfect travelling companion.

Steel Timing Chain
Replacing a timing belt can be an expensive job. But there's no need in the MU-X as it doesn't have one. Instead, a heavy-duty steel timing chain is used and is designed to last the life of the engine. The double scissors design also offers increased durability and reduced noise.
This unique Isuzu engine design eliminates backlash on deceleration, reducing engine wear.
Double Scissor Gears
A double scissor idler gear design results in reduced engine and gear noise for quieter and smoother operation.
Heavy-Duty Isuzu Engine
Isuzu diesel engines are built to withstand higher temperatures and pressures than other engines. The powerful and efficient 3.0L 4JJ3-TCX engine in the MU-X is tough by nature, hard wearing and delivers legendary Isuzu reliability.
