At the heart of the MU-X is the Isuzu 4JJ3-TCX 3.0L turbo-diesel engine. With over a century of specialist engineering experience, the MU-X is perfectly equipped for all of your needs - no matter if hauling a caravan, or just the family.

3.0L Turbo-Diesel

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.

6-Speed Transmission

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.

Transmission Transmission


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+.
